Fafner: Complete Series

 (TV) (2004)

Fafner: Complete Series Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Tatsumiyajima is the central island in the middle of a small cluster of islands, in a sleepy backwater of the Japanese isles. Not much happens there, and the island's young people go to school knowing that their lives are likely to remain peaceful and undisturbed. Or so they have been taught... but the truth is different. The fate of mankind is on the line, and Tatsumiyajima is the last line of defense against a hostile and incomprehensible enemy. At the center of it all, fighting for Humanity's continued existence, is the giant robot Fafner, the dragon that guards this final treasure of mankind.

Fafner: Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fafner is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.33:1. As is usual with FUNimation releases, I was provided a screener (i.e., discs only with no packaging), and so I can't state with certainty whether or not this is an upconversion (FUNimation has not yet responded to my inquiries), but the fact that this was produced in 2004 and features an "old school" aspect ratio may point to an SD native source, but the good news here is if this is indeed an upconversion, it often (if not always) looks pretty sharp and well detailed. (If any readers can point me to definitive information about this, contact me and I'll update the review. Once packaging has been received, I'll also revisit the review.) While some of this series does in fact bear a sort of soft aspect, with slightly blurry imagery and fuzzy line detail (see screencaps 5 and 15 for notable examples), quite a bit of the show sparkles with better clarity and sharpness, certainly much better than some of FUNimation other recent SD upconverts ( Shakugan no Shana: Season 1). The series features some nice CGI elements, especially with regard to some of the swirling "tie dye" backgrounds that surround the mecha pilots when they're joined with their machines, and those offer very nice saturation and well gradated hues. The character designs here are a bit on the strange side. Most of the characters have no noses other than a vertical line and all of the characters have bizarre little lines under their eyes that look like they've been manically scratching their cheeks for some reason.


Fafner: Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fafner features two Dolby TrueHD 2.0 audio options, one in the original Japanese language and the other an English dub. There isn't the incredibly noticeable difference in how aggressive the mixes are on this release, though the English dub does sound at least somewhat more boosted than the Japanese. Fidelity on both of these tracks is excellent, and while a surround audio mix certainly would have considerably opened up the battle elements and perhaps given a little breathing room to what is often a very busy soundtrack, overall things sound very good on both of these stereo outings. The series has a nicely varied score, including some evocative acoustic guitar cues, and those also sound great.
