Japan: Lucky Star only SD Upconvert
Jan 14th 12:27 am
muhootsaver contacted Kadokawa if the Lucky Star Blu-ray box will be based on a HD master or a SD master and, unfortunately, the series and the OVA were animated in SD. Only the concert has a HD master. This is really surprising because Kanon 2006 is older and was produced in HD (the making of on one of DVDs mentioned this) and almost everybody thought that Lucky Star followed as the next HD show. Even Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san were animated in HD so it looks like somebody wanted to save some money in the production back then…
At least I can now understand why the box is quite cheap for a Japanese BD box and I’m afraid that they will use Q-tec again>_<.

Lucky Star is my favorite slice-of-life series, so this box was a must buy for me, even it’s just an upscale. I already own the series as R1-DVDs, but I haven’t bought the concert so far, which motivated me even more to get this release. Packaging: The packaging is very similar to the Haruhi TV

Clannad After Story is now listed on CD-Japan. It will contain English subtitles, the creditless OP/ED, an illustration gallery and promotion clips like the Clannad / Kanon 2006 Blu-ray sets before. The price also is the same: 59600 Yen without taxes. A must-have for me even for this price… EDIT: Here’s the Amazon link: Source:
