Massive Hi-Def Upgrade for a Classic
by Chaddus -
Thanks to Discotek's previous, triumphant release of the 'Robot Carnival' DVD, the film has had time to be celebrated, and more importantly, watched, the world over. Even more thanks goes to Discotek for making the film's Blu-ray debut one to buy--even if you double dipped.
First, the visuals and sound are given a significant boost in range and depth.
Next, the menus and overall disc presentation are miles ahead from last time. We also have a reversible wrap that mimics the Japanese theatrical poster.
Finally, the extras are plentiful. We have test drawings, storyboards, promotional material, and a wealth of background information regarding the production and its release abroad. Curiously, the text essay from the DVD release is missing.
This is likely the best that this film is going to look, sound, and be presented on home media for quite some time. Become a part of animation history and pick it up.
Delights for the Senses

This series is a true joy to behold.
It's a great way to experience a wide variety of work by many different creators along the central theme of robots.
For anyone who has seen the old VHS release, this was a long time coming and I deeply thank Eastern Star for finally giving this anthology film the treatment it deserves.
This is a joy for the senses and a real treat to behold to see what producers, writers, character designers, and animators were pushing for at the time. This is part of the lush history from which the shows we enjoy today were built.
