FLCL: Anime Classics Complete Series

 (TV) (2000-2001)

FLCL: Anime Classics Complete Series Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Naota is a normal Japanese 6th grade boy (although a little cynical), but when his older brother leaves for the U.S. to play baseball, his brother leaves his homeless 17 year old girlfriend Mamimi behind. Mamimi is sending mixed signals and advances to Naota, and he doesn't know what to do about her. But to make matters worse, Naota's world is totally turned upside down when he is run over by a woman on a Vespa. During their first encounter, she hits him over the head with her guitar, which then causes a horn to grow out of his forehead. She calls herself "Haruko" and her presence changes Naota's life to even further insanity.

FLCL: Anime Classics Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 28Mbps), FLCL throws the door wide open for debate over issues of quality. Considering it's been at least three years since my last viewing of the series, I can't recall whether grain and/or texturing were more prevalent in the animation, making it difficult to assess the use of digital noise reduction without an exact side-by-side comparison. What I will say is the series looks surprisingly crisp and well-defined throughout the majority of each episode, often appearing far more appealing than the customary upscale. Painted backgrounds rarely appear murky, line definition in the foreground is precise, and even the most frenetic of action sequences display a fluid level of detail. Continuing with the positives, the color palette of the series is often bold and striking, highlighting the crimson hue of Canti's metallic body, while simultaneously creating a backdrop of sickly browns or yellows in the surrounding countryside. The contrasting use of tones is effectively reproduced in each frame of the transfer, delivering what's likely the greatest gain over the DVD competition.

Now for the moment you've all been waiting for. DNR speculation aside, the new Blu-ray release demonstrates weakness in a few key areas. First and foremost, there's the issue of shimmering lines, which plagues much of the first episode, but seems to diminish as the series progresses. If you pay attention to the Manga art around the twelve minute mark of episode one, you'll notice substantial shimmering among the dot-shaded sections of the picture. Likewise, many of the panning shots that move from side to side during that episode (and found sporadically in others) show substantial line movement that quickly becomes distracting. Adding to those issues, I noticed stairstepping diagonal lines on fine character outlines (the thicker the line, the less there's a problem), and edge halos in a handful of sequences. Naturally, your sensitivity to such defects will largely dictate the degree of frustration you'll feel while witnessing the transfer, so I won't downplay the presence of such deficiencies. Instead, I'll merely provide my opinion that this is the best the series has looked thus far, and acknowledge this is the version to own at this stage in the game.


FLCL: Anime Classics Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Similar to the visual presentation, we're dealing with dated source elements that deliver a satisfactory audio experience, but won't come close to the immersive nature of a full-surround option. Switching back and forth between the native Japanese stereo track and the English stereo dub, you'll notice a bit more disparity than we often find on anime audio mixes. In this case, the English track comes across a bit more muffled, with the dialog registering more prominently than it should in the mix. At first I simply thought this was a volume issue, but even after making some adjustments before switching back and forth, I still came away with the impression that the Japanese version is a bit more robust. Digging into the superior offering, we have adequate separation from side to side (pay attention to a bridge scene around minute 17 of the first episode as cars enter our field of vision from either side), good volume balance between various elements in the mix, and a level of clarity that leaves little reason for complaint. One of the many highlights in FLCL is the use of music throughout the series, which consists of melodic rock numbers performed by the Japanese group The Pillows. Considering the significant role music plays in the series, I anticipated a bit more strength from the soundtrack given the transition to lossless audio, but I suspect part of my disappointment is rooted in the lack of a sub channel to jazz the songs up a bit.

All in all, this is a passable audio presentation that benefits from the upgrade to lossless compression, but I'll still admit the lack of a surround option is difficult to get over.
