Well cost-efficiency wise, HD-DVD has the advantage over Blu-Ray in my mind, but as was said before (in some other thread, I forgot which) Otaku in Japan really don't give a damn about prices, they just want their content. Which leads me to believe that the disc format wars accodring to anime, will be based upon what HD media that the Otkau will be watching in 2k7/2k8 rather than what the world is watching at that time.

yea. Ur right about that. Although that still translate to getting Japanese release without the woes of being in another region.

There is a region 4: Null. That setting seems to be what the initial PS3's will be released at, not sure though.

really? dammn.

DVD's on the other hands have Europe and Japan as the same region, with the US of A has it's own special region of it's own.

I guess they wised up, that it's better to have Japan and the USA grouped together.

the good fortune we have had is now over, curse you blu-ray! *sob*

That's certainly plausable, and I think it was accurate in the past... but I wonder if it holds true in today's market. I don't know either way... I haven't done enough research on the notion to do anything more than blindly guess ^^

I seem to recall seeing Laser Disc anime releases long after the rest of the world stopped releasing media on Laser Disc... it'll be interesting to see if that holds true in the modern era of DVR's, BT downloads, and the rise of the internet. The Japanese anime fan certainly has the money to get his voice heard... the average JP limited edition DVD release holds a TON more extras than anything you'll ever see released in the US, although even those extras seem to be tapering off a bit in content/quality.

We'll probably have to wait a few years to see which way the market's going... but it should be interesting ^_^

IF you buy a HD-DVD player, and Kyo-Ani does release a Blu-Ray ver. of Haruhi, you won't be able to watch it ^^

Honestly, if the HD wars end with Blu-Ray winning (no guarantee either way) the single region might be a really good selling point (for at least a small portion of the market {US Anime fans ^^}).

The major issue however is not just with Blu-ray, but the whole issue surrounding HDMI. HDCP certification is what I am more concerned with now...

Sure we might have a next-gen machine that can play the disc, but you need either a Graphics card that is actually rated to support HDCP and a display that will do it to enjoy anything in hi-def 1080i. If there's no video card today that has this certification, it would invariably mean that all digital enthusiests must upgrade at 2k7 and toss out whatever investments they made on 2k6 regarding HD hardware. Not many displays out there today actually are rated with HDCP ...

and guess what? All major OEM or tier-1 are branding their products as HD ready. I saw at least 3 different hardware reviewers all pointing to how that ATi and Nvidia do not have HDCP certification even on their latest boards... not only that, the displays out there that's actually able to do 1080i are expensive and it's only recently that the displays could be said as 'certified HDCP compliant'...

tsk.

Behardware's article indicates how that a reduced resolution will be displayed (or nothing at all) if the HDCP compliance is not met if even 1 of the display elements fail to have the certification. I don't like the sound of it one bit.

Getting a little off-topic, so I'll just go against the flow for a bit here.

There's an interesting chart showing the relationships between how many time the anime was mentioned in Hatena (a popular search and blogging service) vs the number of posts about it in 2ch. I translated the ones near the top:

Animes near top left: niche anime (popular among animaniacs or hardcore otakus)
Animes near bottom right: mainstream anime (popular among more casual viewers)
Animes near top right: popular anime (popular among casual viewers and animaniacs alike)
Animes near bottom left: unpopular anime (not popular)

Notice the numbers aren't spaced out linearly either, Haruhi's post count in 2ch is actually more than double than that of Higurashi's.

Wow!! This look like a pretty popular series. Is it any good? As of now, would you recommend it?

As of ep3 the forums here have more posts than School Rumble, which has 29 eps, 2 OVA's, and a manga release.

In Japan, the Haruhi thread counts on 2chan are rapidly pushing F/SN out of top place... and F/SN is on ep16... Both shows seem to have well over 64,000 posts by fans.

If you really want to know what people think, I'd recommend looking at the polls on the indivual ep threads... although I'm sure one of the fanboys will come in and tell you all about the show.

Yep I would recommend it. But I would advise against reading the episode poll threads. The temptation to click the spoiler tags is just too great...

Plus for me I feel it's better if I watch a few epsiodes of a new anime first before reading others comments. That way I won't be influenced by other's views on the anime.

Fans and bashers.

That's not a very good idea though... From the word FANboy, you already know you're going to get a very biased opinion. ^^;

Anyway, I'd recommend it, because Haruhi is omnipotent. It's funny and chaotic. By the looks of upto the current episode, it looks like it's also going to have a deeper plot. And Haruhi is omnipotent.

Well... that's why I recommended looking at the polls... not the threads themselves ^^

In a perfect world you'd just browse the different anime blogs on the web until you found a blogger who's opinion you trust (Memento is my primary trusted blog although I download most of the new anime and form my own opinion). If you don't have a trusted blog you could wander over to ANN and get their review of the newest season (YMMV). If you don't want to do either of those... just follow the forum hype in recommending what shows you download.

But if the 1800 posts here in the past 27 days doesn't already tell you what the forum goers here think of the thread, well... askiog what they think will always work as well ^^

I have a question, the people who made Suzumiya Haruhi are the same people who did Shakugan no Shana?
