This has just got to stop. There should be no reason why, when Crunchyroll simulcasted Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt in 720p, it looked better than Funimation’s recent Blu-ray release of the series, which is (supposedly) in 1080p.
I’m not the only person who thinks that the Blu-ray video quality is absolute crap. There’s no excuse for this. I waited for, and paid extra for, a Blu-ray that looks no better than a DVD. This isn’t their first time screwing up a Blu-ray release, and I doubt it’ll be their last.
Of course, if someone has screencaps of the JP release, please share them. It’s possible that Funimation just got shitty masters from Kadokawa. But I’m going to assume that’s not the case, given their track record with Blu-rays.
