So Toei kept the master tapes for The White Snake, a movie from 1961 and have done 4k remaster for it, and yet they claim they have lost film for a tv show from 1992. I really don't believe it. And these upscale blu rays take like ages to be released and it is not justified. They didn't even color corrected it. I cannot believe this studio.

Bad comparison because that's a movie and they have almost always given HD film scans to them.

Mazinger Z's remaster from last year is still the biggest example of their BS because that show is from 1972, is 92 episodes long and yet they went and used the film negatives for it's remaster....meanwhile Devilman, also from 1972 and 39 episodes long, was upscaled for it's 2015 Blu-ray Box (also the same year that Sailor Moon's upscaled HD broadcast was happening).

At least they kept the normal colors. The dvd remaster covers had some very ugly coloring and glaring color mistakes. As much as I am tired of these same covers used over and over again, I would still get them over the flart Marko Albiero fanart.

They can't be hideous, they have tons of SPARKLES. Everyone knows that sparkles = elegance. Didn't you get that memo? :lol:
It's so sad they take great art and just... botch it. The new background looks terrible, and the editing is very amatuer. The cover with Serenity and Galaxia looks nice, though the sparkles are very excessive. The design for the BD box is so incredibly sloppy.

They have tons of new artwork in the style of the 90's anime, so why can't they do that for the home video release? It's just so sad.

Listen, Star Fighter and Star Maker didn't spend twenty hours in the make up trailer slathering on forty layers of eye shadow for that picture of them not to get used again :lol:

Just in time for the Olympics. :P

But yeah, the cover art's sloppy and the LD choices for this season are really lacking (see here and the DVD covers here).

With Tamegai still working on Precure, you would think they could get him to do some new designs and include those who are missing for a new group shot or two.

Well at least we have a full set of blu-rays now.
Amusingly Amazon is selling the DVD boxes for more.
Pity Amazon didn't do collectors boxes for all 5 seasons - only S and Stars...:/
