Royal Space Force: The Wings Of Honneamise is a terrific Japanese anim
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows improvements over the previously reviewed DVD by way of a cleaned up source element with much less edge enhancement. While edge enhancement is still visible, it is nowhere near as distracting as the previous release. The imagery is generally sharp and pixel breakup is not overly problematic. The H.264 AVC-encoded Blu-ray Disc and VC-1-encoded HD DVD look identical. Both show noticeably dated colors, and source element artifacts are noticeable at times throughout. The animation generally looks flat and lifeless, although some scenes can have some pop, and noticeable noise can be seen in the darker scenes. Edge enhancement is also noticeable at times, although it is minor. (Danny Richelieu)
