Massive Hi-Def Upgrade for a Classic

by -

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

by -

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.

An Awesome 80s Anthology Film about Robots in Brilliant 1080P!

by -

Robot Carnival is like a Carnival for your eyes, because the animation in this film is spectacular! Top animators of the era worked on this project creating several short narratives that all have the common theme of robots. The Blu-Ray quality of this is magnificent! My personal favorite shorts are 'Star Angel' and 'Presence', but all of the shorts are fantastic, even 'Cloud'. Now we just need "Memories" and "Neo Tokyo" on Blu-Ray and I will be one happy camper!

1980s anime perfection

by

This bluray looks so indescribably good I want to personally hug and high five everyone that was involved with the transfer.

It's breathtaking.

I have to confess; I'm not a huge fan of ALL the segments. But the ones I like I absolutely LOVE. They are like seeing all of 1980s anime encapsulated into little 10 minute segments.

The opening/ending by the god of manga and anime, Mr. Katsuhiro Otomo is a masterpiece of dark humor.

"Deprive" is everything you'd ever want from 80s robot anime....killer shredding guitar soundtrack, the most punk rock androgynous villain you've ever seen, and amazing action sequences.

And then there's "Starlight Angel." What a beautiful, charming, perfect slice of romance and action that tells a fantastic story with a beginning, middle, and end without any dialogue.

Discotek has outdone themselves with this one. Buy it right away, and be sure to get MEMORIES too, cause you NEED all of Otomo's work on bluray.
