Here's a few images showing a image quality comparison between my recent encode and the old anime-takeover release. First off, they encoded from the american DVDs if I remember correctly while I did so from the Japanese DVDs which is the main reason why mine looks much better. Well, that and they softened the image with filters to make the file size smaller and whatnot. Anyhow, these are the same frames, but either they cropped it or the English release was just like that. Probably the latter. And you can see the images below. Nothing else to say. See ya!
