This was a pretty strong first episode. The characters and setting are pretty interesting and the music is pretty nice too. The only thing I did have a problem with were the visuals, while they are animated pretty well, the art kind of looks grainy. It made me think I had downloaded a lower quality version or something. After a while that did stop bothering me but its a strange choice.

I want to watch this eventually but I'm in the middle of watching Ashita no Joe (which MB is a celebration of) and I'd think it'd be too repetitive watching both at the same time.

The fact that MB is a homage to a 70s/80s series might explain the grainy art.

Yeah I had heard it was a celebration for Ashita no Joe, It even says at the very beginning that it's a project in honor of Joe's 50th anniversary. I have heard good things about Ashita no Joe but since sports anime usualy aren't my thing I haven't checked it out. The whole Exoskeleton thing was enough of a twist to pull me in to this though.

I guess they could be trying to go for an old school feel with the graininess, but it comes off as just as lower res.

Though I will admit, after a few minutes it stopped bothering me, its just a bit of a shame with how pretty some of the art is.

Could just be the simulcaster's terrible encode too.

I don't watch too much sports anime either but I might start watching more (or at least just Hajime no Ippo) with how much I'm enjoying Joe. Yabuki vs Rikiishi is probably the best rivalry I've seen in anime, probably one of the greatest fictional rivalries in general, but I also don't watch many sports movies/tv shows/whatever.

It looks low-res because it is, in fact, mastered in SD.

Another pretty good episode. The music in this episode was fantastic and so were the visuals. The graininess is still there and as >>25233 said, it'll probably be staying, but I don't mind much. Looks like things are going to be moving at a good pace too seeing as they've only got 13 episodes to work with.

No, unless you find boxing cute for some reason.

I wasn't expecting it to head in this direction, but so far I'm really enjoying this. It could shape up to be really good. Anyone else pick this up yet?

Wait, why is it mastered in SD? Is there any real reason for that?

To make it look all old-school I would assume.
I hate that mentality, lower resolution is not a subjective art style choice, it is an objective loss in quality.

Still somewhat enjoying the show, I like solo sports anime.

That's retarded though, it's like saying to dress in traditional medieval clothing for a fair you have to be wearing rags.

That honestly doesn't make as much sense as it may seem. Since when are a stylistic choice and an objective loss in quality mutually exclusive?

Consider lens flare. That's an artifact of a specific technology, so pervasive that it has become a part of our audiovisual culture. It is often recreated when it doesn't naturally happen, even on media where it simply can't happen. It is one example that imitating a different technology is a valid and common artistic technique.

Consider applying a sepia, black-and-white or CRT screen filter to an image (or part of it). That's quite undeniably an objective loss in quality. If not a style choice, what is it?

Clearly the general rule is that imitating the look-and-feel of a different, often obsolete, often objectively worse technology is a legitimate way to evoke the feelings that the audience associate with that technology (with its period, often). I think one would be hard-pressed to argue why SD is an exception to this rule.

You are correct in using those as examples, because I hate those too.
Lens flare is a mistake and I wish people would stop using it. The absolute worse is when anime shakes it's camera around constantly, despite the fact that there is no one there holding the camera, let alone someone with fucking Parkinsons.

>I think one would be hard-pressed to argue why SD is an exception to this rule.

I'm not saying it's an exception, I just hate that rule in general.

Damn that was a pretty good show. It's a shame no one else here watched it though. Pretty solid all the way through, and wraps up really well. That last fight was really good too!
Definitely check this out if you're even slightly interested in it, once you get past the weird grainy effect there's a pretty good show waiting for you.
