Red Tint News

Anime News Network has some bits from an interview with someone who I guess may be the producer of the R2 Spirited Away DVD talking about the red tint. I don't know enough about TVs and stuff to know if this is just BS or real. But it does sound like the US version is being produced a little differently. So there's hope (even though I already have the R2 release).

is what it sounds and reads like to me. it's the same crap that they spewed when the initial fuss over the outrageous red tint was made. depending on your tv, some were worse then others, but it was definitely there no matter what kind of set you viewed it on. only sen has this problem; no other Ghibli and nonGhbili dvds so obviously someone and something got majorly FUDGED.

ok. rant over. it's a bad thing to get me started on the Ghibli red tint.

Yeah. I read a lot about this when it first came around. My disc was already on its way or I would have considered cancelling my order. It gets into an area of video tech that I'm clueless in so my eyes kinda glaze over if I read too much about it.

yknow, if you knew about it after the dvd shipped but before it arrived, you could have refused it and had it returned to sender, free of charge.
luckily, i found out in time to cancel my preorder. it'll be interesting to see what happens with the r1 release. other regions have tried lessoning the red tint, but at the cost of other colors and other video issues.
the biggest movie of miyazaki's career to date, and this happens -.-
