While it has been universally noted on various postings about the remix versions that the sound is significantly better than the original sessions, there are multiple varying reviews on the PICTURE QUALITY. Some say there is no difference at all, some say it's a bit better, some say it's a lot better, all say they have "checked" both versions. Well, I took it a step further. I watched both versions side by side on an Avid Nitris Professional video editing system with high definition high resolution (HDHR) monitors and here is the DEFINITIVE ANSWER. There is a difference, they lightened it and did a very slight color correction. Basically, the old versions were a bit dark and some of the detail went unnoticed while the remix versions are lighter and there is more visible detail and color. In terms of viewing expeirience this means that a majority of the scenes look noticibly (if marginally) better. There are certain scenes, however, where the lightness works against it. Some of the more noirish scenes look a bit bleedy. Overall I would say that there is a difference in video quality and that the difference is mostly an improvement. But, even to the die hard fan the difference is negligible.
If you don't own the originals, if they're scratched, if you're a huge fan, if you have an awesome theatre system with good surround, or if you have a crappy small tv and can't see the detail in the image, GET THE REMIX. If not, while they are cool, they're not worth the $30 a pop.
Bebop is one of the greatest sci-fi series, bar none, and goes beyond the realms of anime. I would say it even leaves Star Wars in the dirt! The realism of the characters is what gives it charm. They can be pushy, lazy, brave, cowardly, and caring for each other (even though they won't admit it). What series wouldn't be funny when the dog, Ein, is really the smartest one of the whole crew.Read more ›
This is a highly enjoyable series, and it has some of the best music around. In this case, we get to experience from blues to heavy metal, and the songs always fit the mood of the scene to perfection. In terms of the Extras, the disc includes some interesting interviews, especially the one in which Kawamori explains the theory behind space travel as portrayed in the series. This new remix version has a very good video quality and breathtaking audio. Fans of the series will not be disappointed, and newbies should seriously consider jumping right in!
The only "real" DVD extra on this disc is a commentary on the episode "Ganymede Elegy"; providing the commentary are Wendee Lee (the American voice actor for Faye Valentine) and Yutaka Maseba (the English ADR Director). I have to say I was disappointed that this was the only true extra included on this release. I wish they could have included interviews with various cast members about the particular episodes on this disc. I just feel that this release was only given "bare bones" for extras, and that providing one or two more special features would have improved this release greatly.
