  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 27Mbps), the Clamp Double Feature sports a visual presentation that's clear and distinct, but not what I'd consider a tremendous upgrade. In large part, this is due to shortcomings in the original animation, which ranks marginally better than episodes of the regular series, but not up to the quality of a full-blown theatrical production. For instance, stair-stepping lines are clearly visible on diagonal borders, and the image has a tendency to appear a touch on the hazy side. In addition, I detected what appears to be a slight chromatic shift during the early stages of the xxxHolic episode, revealing a subtle green line directly to the right of most black borders. It's not overly distracting and doesn't continue for very long, but it's still a visual flaw worth pointing out. Moving beyond the smattering of minor complaints, the most significant improvements to the visual quality of this release lie in the rich color spectrum and the overall consistency of the digital transfer. Banding is kept to an absolute minimum, artifacting is absent, and there's no need for the use of edge enhancement to artificially sharpen the image. Overall, this is still a visually arresting experience, but limitations in the source material demand we keep our expectations in check.

  3.5 of 5

Offering a dual upgrade over the prior DVD release, the Blu-ray contains the original Japanese language track in lossless 2.0, alongside a lossless version of the 5.1 English dubbed track. In a perfect world, I'd hope for a lossless surround option in the native language of the series, but considering the original recording was likely completed in its current form, it's impossible to complain over something that can't be helped. As usual, I prefer the Japanese option on the majority of anime productions, so I kicked off my listening experience with the 2.0 mix. As expected, the front-heavy mix lacks the depth of finely tuned surround separation, leaving us with an experience that's merely adequate at getting the job done (but not what I'd consider a value-added audio experience). The English dub on the other hand, demonstrates an excellent sense of immersion, separating nuances in the audio effects to create a wildly entertaining experience. Those of you familiar with Tsubasa and xxxHolic already have some idea of the outlandish fantasy elements in each production, but the prevalence of these over-the-top effects (especially in the case of Tsubasa) is given an epic attribute that often seemed missing from the show. xxxHolic incorporates longer sequences of dialog to move the film forward, but once we cross into the "haunted house" section, the creepy sound effects become a prominent component of the sound design. Moving on to volume balance, every element is afforded appropriate weight in the collective mix, allowing abundant clarity in the overall presentation.

If given the option of scoring the audio offerings separately, I'd give the English track a 4/5, and the Japanese track a 2.5/5. The differences between the two tracks are certainly noticeable, but the lack of surround separation on the Japanese mix rarely downgraded my overall enjoyment of the show.
