Elfen Lied: Complete Collection Plus OVA Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Elfen Lied first aired in 2004, just on the cusp of when series, either animated or not, were making the transition into full time high definition. Cursory research has uncovered sources which differ about whether this show was produced and aired in HD, but my hunch is, after having seen this Blu-ray edition, that it probably wasn't. While ADV's AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1 doesn't look like a typical upscale to me (there's little if any telltale signs like rampant stairstepping on line detail, and the previously released Japanese Blu-rays were reportedly sourced from true HD masters), this is still a very soft looking presentation. There are some occasional problems with image stability (the opening credits in particular suffer from quite a bit of shimmer), but overall things look solid here if not especially mind blowing. Colors are nicely saturated, and the series' kind of minimalistic design aesthetic comes through decently. Fans of the series will already know this is not the most detailed animation to begin with, and so some slack has to be granted the perhaps incremental improvement in appearance this Blu-ray offers. This is therefore going to be one of those "glass half full, glass half empty" Blu-ray releases for fans of the series. Those who only caught the broadcast version and skipped the DVD releases will probably be at least reasonably pleased with this new Blu-ray. Those who have the DVDs and were hoping for a major uptick in resolution and clarity may be disappointed by this release.


Elfen Lied: Complete Collection Plus OVA Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Elfen Lied features DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes in both the original Japanese as well as an English dub. There's a slight but still noticeable difference between these two mixes, with the English language version having a somewhat muffled upper register that is especially apparent during musical moments as well some of the more bombastic action sequences. The Japanese track just sounds brighter, for want of a better word, with a much more present high end and midrange. That said, both of these mixes are quite immersive, nicely opening up the soundfield and offering consistent levels of surround activity. Aside from the anomaly on the English language version, fidelity is very good and dynamic range is extremely wide.
