Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I've never seen this show, but I know that it was extremely popular.

I searched Kametsu and didn't see any posts about this.

So here you go, for anyone who wasn't aware. ^_^

Its not going to be like the Simpsons and zoom in to make it 16:9 is it?

 

I'm honestly not sure, I did a decent amount of searching and couldn't find any solid info on it for you.

 

From what I read the first 4 seasons were 1.33:1 (4:3) but apparently had many moments in several episodes that were 1.78:1 (16:9) to emphasize particular scenes. So cropping all of S1-S4 to 1.78:1 would be awkward to say the least, because it would bounce around between cropped and uncropped scenes, not to mention de-emphasizing the 1.78:1 scenes.

 

I saw one comment mentioning that Warner doesn't upscale SD content for HD releases, so according to them this is indeed a true remastering of the first 4 seasons. If that statement is correct, I don't see why they would go through all that trouble just to crop the image in the end.

 

Better yet, they may expand the image to 1.78:1 with no cropping, and the scenes that were previously 1.78:1 could be expanded to 2.40:1 to maintain the emphasis they intended to imply for those scenes. (This would be awesome for long time Samurai Jack fans and newcomers like myself!)

 

I'm curious how the aspect ratio changes will be handled if they retain the 1.33:1 ratio. When it first aired they obviously just matted a 1.78:1 image inside a 1.33:1 frame. They must know how silly this would look on a modern widescreen TV, so here's hoping that the image is expanded from 1.33:1 to 1.78:1 and fills the whole screen for these scenes.

 

We'll find out it a couple months unless new info becomes available.

resolution of the files is 1440x1080 so it's original 4:3 aspect ratio.

Those are cropped from the 1920*1080 theatrical event trailer on Youtube, they aren't necessarily representative of the actual BD sets.

Yeah, I read on blu-ray.com that Every season is on a 50 GB disc which would make an episode have like 3-4 times the bitrate and size (my guess is at least 3 GB/EP) of a native ITunes rip (I also read on the official discussion thread of the series that the Itunes version is about 800-900 MB per episode). I would buy the boxset myself (and one day I most certainly will) but besides the fact that it is already currently out of stock (and is being sold on eBay at a Higher price than officially announced) I can't afford it right now. And, as a personal favorite series I think it deserves only the Best.xD

Honestly you can skip the whole series. To get all of Samurai Jack's journey, you only need to watch the 1st 3 episodes and the whole new series in 2017. The original director has disregarded any seasons after 1, and all comic books, novels, etc. he did not write.

      I just thought I'd share with you which cartoons I've liked, which cartoons I haven't liked, and which cartoons I plan on watching.  I'd like you to tell me which cartoons you'd recommend to me!  Feel free to "second" the ones on my list, too.  It gives me a better idea of what kinds of cartoons you like.  Keep in mind that while I have watched a handful of anime and adult cartoons, I am generally not interested in them, so there's no need to mention them.
       
      Currently watching:
       
      Dreamworks Dragons I'm finally making some headway again, after a long time of procrastinating and waiting to download the special episode that takes place between the Cartoon Network and Netflix seasons. The Netflix seasons are so much better animated, it isn't even funny. Goes to show you what a little budget will do, huh?  
      Cartoons I've liked*:
       
       
      Honorable Mentions:
       
       
      Cartoons that I plan to watch**:
       
       
      Cartoons I might watch if enough people recommend them:
       
       
      Cartoons on hold:
       
       
      Cartoons that I stopped watching due to a lack of interest:
       
       
      Cartoons that are objectively bad:
