DVD QUALITY INFORMATION

WHAT ABOUT DVD QUALITY?

Frankly speaking, each set of every DVD series comes in different picture quality. Of course, we at TokusatsuDVD always wanted to give you the best  possible picture quality at the time you placed an order with us. We don't want to leave you guessing, we want you to be sure about what you're buying before you make a payment. Majority of our DVD series have individual page where you can check screen caps of each series prior to your purchase. For those series without the individual page yet, and for your convenience, we have created a general standard guide (categorized) of our DVD quality.

D-Remastered Custom
(Grade: 95 - 98%)
 

Same as above but this comes in custom menu, not the original Japanese menu. Contents are all the same, in its uncut format.


Digital TV
(Grade: 90 - 95%)
 


These episodes were taken directly from re-runs in Japan. Majority of the episodes were digitally restored, similar to R2. However, the episodes have white logo and most often degrade in quality due to the fact that these episodes weren't straightly coming from the master print. Still, Digital TV quite comparable to R2, this is the best alternative if the R2 version is not available. Menu are often plain blue or custom made. Some are Japanese custom menu.
 


Laser Disc Remastered
(Grade: 90 - 95%)
 


Every single episodes were digitally transferred to fit into DVD. Quite comparable to R2 and Digital TV, but often the picture feels darker or blurry compared to R2. Most menu are plain blue one.

This is due to the fact that the remastering process took place quite a few years ago, with less hi-tech equipment than modern days. In addition, transferring to DVD may degrade the picture quality by a small amount. Still, the best alternative if R2 or Digital TV version are not available.
