My only experience with AnimEigo Blu-ray was the, I'm sorry to say, abysmal release of Lone Wolf & Cub. I don't want to insult anyone's work, but I really hope lessons have been learned after the response to that release, which I can assure you did not just come from cinephile type reviewers. I am very concerned about the defense of that product from Mr. Woodhead, as it was a great example of DNR overuse. I'm all for removing the smallest bits of dirt and dust, but if the only way to do that is what was done with LW&C, just forget it. For me, the BGC set would become unwatchable.
Maybe that sounds like hyperbole, but it's 2014 and the battle between "warts and all but film like" and "clean as whistle but video like" battle was won years ago by the former. Any Blu-ray label that goes with the latter is choosing to live in the past. Here is a good example of an anime title that was grain filled on the Japan release but DNR'd for the UK release:
Completely unnecessary if you ask me. Whilst there has been little detail lost, the removal of a lot of the grain has resulted in a less film like and less accurate presentation. I hope that AnimEigo will not get seduced by the ability to have a cleaner image at the expense of a film like presentation. People who actually prefer noise reduction to be applied rarely get up in arms when a release is grain filled, whilst people who prefer grain can be unforgiving if it is removed.
What I would prefer to see is a 1:1 copy of the Japanese master, which is just about possible if your compressionist knows his stuff. Anything else is too risky.
