Akemi's Anime World

Blu-Ray Anime Content Guide

Sony's awkwardly-named format won the underwhelming hi-def wars, so of course AAW had to jump on board with it. These are the anime available on Blu-ray that we've viewed and reviewed on said discs.

For those that care what hardware the reviews were done with (we, frankly, usually don't), we view Blu-ray discs on a 37" 1080p Sharp Aquos (LC37D62U) connected to a PS3 (with latest firmware) via HDMI; audio is an Onkyo HT-R667 7.1-channel receiver with audio over HDMI (note that, because the PS3 will not output bitstream audio for the highest-end audio formats, the PS3 is set to handle the decoding, with the receiver playing the raw PCM stream). TV was calibrated using a calibration disc and appropriate blue filter, though with anime color accuracy isn't a particularly significant issue; audio calibrated using the system's microphone at appropriate listening points.
