1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer is about as
sharp and clean as any Anime Blu-ray releases we have seen to date,
which can be said for the other two initial Sentai series releases we
are looking at and posting at the same time, while the
DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mix has some Pro Logic
type surrounds, but like those others is warm, rich and just fine in
two-channel as well. Extras
include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
