Ryuki OP and first battle karaoke released

Just wanted to show how the final results will look from the Blu-ray. Just for full disclosure, Ryuki is a series that was upscaled to Blu-ray and wasn't filmed in HD originally. You may wonder what that means.

That means if you look real closely, you might see that the footage doesn't look as good as say Kabuto will when we release it from Blu-ray next month (since from Hibiki onwards, Kamen Rider was all filmed in HD). So there's a little artifacting in the blue and there's not as much detail in Ren's face as there should be. But it's still going to be a better quality release than from our DVD source.

When released on DVD, they took the original footage (not sure what resolution it was) and compressed it down to 720x480, then that's resized to 16:9 ratio so it's widescreen. Our original releases were what, 704x396 using the xvid codec, I think?

What Toei did was they took their original footage and upscaled it so that it's 1920x1080. Don't get me wrong, this isn't like taking the DVD footage and resizing it to 1920x1080. You can't create details out of nothing and that would look really bad. They took their footage (which was likely higher resolution than DVD) and professional upscaled it. So it's not going to look as good as if it originally were HD, but it looks fine in motion.

Help qcing Ryuki for blu-ray?

I'd like to convert our scripts for Blu-ray. Can I get some volunteers to do some QC work on them? E-mail me at the contact us tab above if you're interested. Be sure to include a nick for how you want to be credited.

Kabuto 3 HD 720 released but...

The blu-rays are coming out in January, so expect this to be obsoleted almost instantly. We're just releasing it now since we had already put the work into it when the announcement was made.

Kamen Rider Drive 04 released

So streaming on dailymotion won't work anymore, since all the Toei videos have been taken down. (Garo's still up though.) If you guys have any suggestions on how we could continue it, feel free to contribute to this thread.
