I'm watching RahXephon on the latest DVDs (the ones from the "fire sale" @ RS) and there is an insane amount of noise in the picture, especially in the blacks. It's like watching a grainy projected-from-film movie. Is this a horror of the dark ages of DVD era compression?
The noise made it look as though there were rain in a scene where there is none. It was a weird illusion.
BTW, why hasn't this very "visual" series of no small renown gotten a bluray here yet?
I was told yesterday that I sound like Rev Lovejoy from the Simpsons.
Rahxephon had several scenes with intentionally added grain, so that likely caused some of the effect you saw. I believe it may have also been one of the series in which ADV was supplied with composite masters, which could also increase the noise.
As for a bluray release, it will probably happen at some point. It's likely held up by the fact that ADV still holds the license to the series. They would need to negotiate for bluray rights, if they are even interested at this point. It's not entirely impossible, just not very likely. So far, their sole bluray has been Elfen Lied and it doesn't appear that they are in any hurry to release others.
It's also possible that Sentai's may be waiting for ADV's license to expire so they can attempt to acquire the series. If that occurs, ten a bluray may be more likely. Read More...
