Patlabor TV BDMV screenshot comparison

Japanese release BD vs North American Maiden Japan BD release.

Japanese release is degrained, now the grain looks like macro blocks and details was lost. Crushed blacks.

IVTC combing was more apparent in the US release, but fixable in post process. If you pixel peep, you can see ringing because the lower bitrate used, grainier and sharper. 3.5GB on the US version vs 6.5GB, video only.

The cover on the Japanese version is better though :^)

Winner is

The BD did not include the picture book.
Only picture book 2 iso was available.
So I included subsmith for the sake of completion.
