So, besides fucking up the luma levels, their shitty encode is riddled with artifacts. Licensed BDs never look as good as the Japanese ones, but this one looks specially bad.

Got my pre-order in the mail. Looks good to me when I watched it. That marker dropping scene still gets me. I know its coming but the timing is just so good.

I've checked the UK BD myself. The comparison image is, sadly, accurate... though I should note that that's kind of a cherry-picked example and it isn't that noticable in motion... But still, the encoding is really shoddy, which would be a shame at the best of times but for a movie as jaw-droppingly gorgeous as this one, it's particularly disappointing.

Hi folks!

Following up and having unloaded the van I have finally been able to check the BD of Your Name out again for myself. Here’s the findings:

Audio: We’ve looked at the disc and while the audio point seems to just be perception based on the fact the JP audio all comes from one source and the international releases will not by and large. While reviewers have noted on the BD the video (aka UK-Anime.net most recently) you will note nobody across DVD or BD reviewing has flagged audio issues either which lends to this point.

Video: While certainly not defective, I would be adding this to the Defective / disappointing disc thread under “disappointing” as to us this is a special project and the quality is while completely fine for casual viewers (of which a large number of buyers will fall under) as a videophile along with long time fan of Mr Shinkai’s work, it isn’t what I’m completely happy with (good enough to make commercial release, not good enough for me to be proud of). This happens sometimes especially when QC was done quickly and usually companies would leave it be.

What are we doing about it: We’re making sure the Blu-Ray master is re-authored now to use a better video encode for the next print run that is done.

Will you be announcing a formal replacement scheme? No official replacement scheme will be posted, simply put as the disc does pass muster from a industry standpoint and the majority of viewers (in this case the mass market) experience won’t be impacted.

But I am in the first run and really upset! We totally understand and as a fan who’s supported us through thick and thin what we are willing to do is replace your disc when we do the reprint the disc if you’re really upset by the quality. All you have to do is email shop.uk@alltheanime.comwith a subject line of YOUR NAME – BLU-RAY and write us a (polite and short) email saying what your issue with the Blu-Ray is then we’ll replace it with a fresh master (coming late this year most likely).

Hope this clarifies and again shows our dedication to all of you ��. I could go into detail on this frontier but figure best keep it short and sweet!

Very best,

Andrew

That is pretty sad to hear. Glad I bought the Japanese release.

Not sure, but I'm glad Amazon makes it so easy to return products with a full refund and free return shipping.

According to the thread on Bluray.com, some overseas masters have a very slight green tint to it. So far, the UK/AU version seems to the be one with the most noticeable problems.

Do not post when you are drunk.
btw recently I prefer this movie than others because I think Shinkai's naiveness plus entertainment plot made a great cafe au lait.

I really don't like Koe no Katachi because I don't like that they treated handicapped as an unhappy victim for tearjerker story.

Finally got around to watch the movie (and on the UK copy with the supposed problems). I didn't notice anything wrong with my copy so maybe the delay in getting it actually worked to my advantage.

That said I'm not overly impressed with the movie. Sure, production values are pretty good and the story is pretty decent but for some reason I rate it closer to The Place Promised in Our Early Days than I do to Garden of Words. Maybe it's just the upbeatness of the story that gets to me or the presence of more comedy in the story... It's not bad, very far from it, but it misses the mark from masterpiece for me.

Also, and maybe this has been mentioned before, but is that ending basically a precise 180 of the 5cm per second ending? Cause it feels like the polar opposite of that one right down to some of the scenery choices. It's almost like Shinkai-san folded to those who hoped for a "happy" ending on that show regardless of how unreasonable it would be. I'm not saying I don't like the ending, I quite enjoyed it and feel like it works thematically and was not in any way forced, but I still found it interesting how it felt so much like a "happy" version of 5cm's one. I wonder if it was on purpose.

Hmm...first of all, we tend to overrate an unpopular movie. The definition of masterpiece is not only one.
This movie became popular than Ghibli by philosophy different from Ghibli. That's why this movie is valuable, I think.
(e.g. Hosoda is great animator but he is not a great storyteller unlike Miyazaki. Hosoda was making Ghibli copy movie, after all)
Moreover, this movie is basically Shinkai movie, actually. Shinkai's "physical distance and spiritual distance" plot is Harukism, as Shinkai says.
This naiveness is completely different from creators of Miyazaki age and present audience accepted his world. That's why this movie is valuable.
