For those who didn't know there's a LD rip.
Also discuss this and any other Con shorts.
Seen a transcript of the ebay sale of one of the discs. The starting bid was $600 and ended like $1200+
It's a serious grail item for anime collectors
Those were some scary flying... swords.
Thanks anon, the version that was available on bakabt is pretty shit.
Wait, is this new? I have had a shitty version for a few years now. I watch it every few months because I love it so much.
Based thread. I knew going on /a/ today was a good idea.
Wow, this is fantastic. I've been waiting years for a good version to finally get ripped.
Still low quality compared to modern media, but a hell of a lot better than what we had previously.
I remember the first time I saw the gigantic mob of characters at the end of Daicon 4 I couldn't make anything out due to the low quality.
The one one bakabt now is passable, but still not that great.
More comparison shots with the bakabt rip.
Actually, I deinterlaced and tried to clean up the LaserDisc rip in ffmpeg last week, and I got some decent results. Here is what I got, but the audio is a tad offsync:
On the other hand, the 2014 New Year's Collab was probably the best yet, and Cookie☆ have taken a real upswing in quality:
Its just changing tastes. Gachimuchi as a concept is nearly 10 years old, and even the Japanese will get tired of seeing the same joke over and over again.
Although MAD and 音MAD creators will make brilliant things for the sake of it, they will stop making them if few people care or find it funny. It happened with Ronald McDonald, with Chargeman Ken!, with Shuzo Matsuoka, and now with Pants Wrestling Series/Gachimuchi.
Are you trying to view it at anything bigger than 480p?
Its only 1080p60 for more bitrate and a dedicated frame for each field. There is some loss in detail, but I did not find it to be egregious.
