Lone Wolf and Cub

 (1972-1974)

Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-ray features mediocre video and solid audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

He is the most feared assassin in all of Japan, known only as the Lone Wolf. Pushing his young son along the back-roads of feudal Japan in a heavily armed baby-cart, he strikes fear into the black hearts of evil-doers everywhere -- as long as someone can come up with his fee. Nothing, not the legions of a mad shogun, hordes of Yagyu ninja, or even the undead, can stop him!

For more about Lone Wolf and Cub and the Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-ray release, see Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Lone Wolf and Cub Complete is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of AnimEigo with AVC encoded 1080p transfers in 2.35:1. Some rabid fans of this series are going to be reciting that old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," as the Shogun Assassin transfers, while occasionally problematic, generally looked pretty darned good, with a minimum of digital tweaking and good color and clarity. AnimEigo was evidently concerned with some of the visual noise and damage that were still apparent in the elements and evidently went back to the DNR drawing board with this new Lone Wolf and Cub set. There's been a lot of hand wringing over this decision, and while I'm the first to admit I am not as troubled down to the depths of my very soul about DNR as many videophiles seem to be (something that has repeatedly raised the ire of some reading my reviews, I might add), I have to say what really strikes me about these new transfers is how dark they are in comparison to the Shogun Assassin outings. This could be due to either new color grading or contrast tweaking (I personally suspect the latter), but for me, anyway, that difference was much more noticeable than the additional DNR. Despite the DNR, the image still retains a fair amount of fine object detail, and I frankly failed to see an overly waxy, smeary image in any consistent way throughout the six films. There's DNR, don't get me wrong, but there's also fine grain still easily visible, especially in the outdoor scenes with bright skies (see the screencap of Itto walking toward the sunset for a good example, an example which also includes some obvious ringing, by the way). The darker appearance of these transfers does mean that some fine object detail is now somewhat masked and shadow detail becomes a bit more problematic. Many who have an almost genetic abhorrence of DNR will no doubt be more fixated on that aspect of these transfers, but my initial response, which I freely admit is not as vehement as most who hate DNR, is that while these are far from optimal, they're not the complete botch job some are insisting they are.


Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

AnimEigo may have alienated a lot of fans with their decision to tweak the video elements of this new Lone Wolf and Cub set, but they may have at least partially made up for that decision with the laudable inclusion of uncompressed soundtracks for all six films, something that was not part of the Shogun Assassin box set. All six Lone Wolf and Cub outings now feature LPCM Mono mixes that suffice quite well, within their obviously narrow parameters. Generally speaking, these sound a bit fuller than their English language counterparts, with better representation in the low end especially. That is compromised at least a little by some occasional brittleness in the upper registers, frequencies which are also hampered by some clearly audible hiss at times. Taken as a whole, though, all six films sound rather good most of the time, with only occasional niggling qualms to take into account.
