Horrible Video Quality

by -

Video quality is not very good. looks like an upscale of a DVD at best not sure if the masters were just this poor or if there was some other reason, very disappointing. Content is still good but only has the US dub.

One of the greatest classic horror OVAs of all time!


Finallllllly! Allllll of the classic ova on one Blu-ray. Looks better than my old DVDs. I am verrrrrry happy this great horror anime is finally out, I hope more people discover it and see how ahead of its time it was. I hope the live action adaptation will be released next! This anime is in my top five anime horror OVAs if all time. Better than DVD quality, great sound, and UNCUT! BRAVO AND ENCORE! Hey!!! More 90s anime and genre films like this, PLEASE! SUCH A MASTERPIECE!

Disappointing "Remaster" -- It deserves so much better than this!


When I heard that Doomed Megalopolis, what I consider to be one of THE classic golden era anime OVAs (along with pretty much everything else released by Streamline Pictures in the 80s and 90s) -- I was SO excited to see this in remastered 1080p quality. I had only ever seen it on VHS, DVD, and whatever other lower-quality sources that weren't doing it much justice. Needless to say, this was pretty much a day one purchase for me.

Sadly, upon viewing this remaster I was shocked at just how poorly done it was... What the hell was even remastered here?? Like another reviewer said, it looked like little more than a DVD upscale, as digital artifacting was obvious from the opening credits. The picture was dark, murky, and details were blurry, especially obvious with characters standing in the background. I'm not sure how they got away with basically slapping the DVD version on a Blu Ray and calling it a remaster, but it is horribly disappointing how badly they dropped the ball with this.
