Ponyo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

What Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli have accomplished through magnificent artistry and beautiful hand-drawn animation, Disney accomplishes through technical perfection, a flawless presentation, and a masterfully encoded 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 transfer. Vibrant primaries erupt from Miyazaki's painterly palette as aggressively as the ocean surges round Sosuke's home. Lush greens and yellows, soft blues, piercing reds, icy whites, and inky blacks ripple through Ponyo's world, transforming every frame into a gorgeous print worthy of hanging on a cinephile's wall. Moreover, Studio Ghibli's expressive characters are bolstered by clean, crisp lineart and stable color fills; the team's hand-painted backgrounds showcase every brush stroke and penciled texture; and the artisans' fluid animation is meticulously rendered in glorious high definition. Detail, contrast, and clarity are impeccable, and artifacting, aliasing, edge enhancement, unintentional source noise, and virtually any other anomaly imaginable are nowhere to be seen. Even banding -- ever the enemy of animated-film transfers -- is non-existent. Scour the oceans and stare at the skies all you like; you won't encounter any issues. I could go on, but I fear my analysis is already flirting with hyperbole. Suffice to say, the Blu-ray edition of Ponyo is absolutely stunning.

Ponyo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's audio package would stand side-by-side with its video transfer if it weren't for one small problem: while Ponyo's excellent English dub leaves a lasting impression via a top tier DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, its original Japanese mix is presented with a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 track. Normally I'd be a bit more upset than I am -- I'm generally a purist when it comes to audio on foreign films -- but I've always enjoyed the voice casts the studio has assembled for Miyazaki's animated films, and Ponyo is no different. Disney's DTS-HD MA track is an absorbing sonic experience blessed with powerful low-end presence, crystal clear dialogue, and a fittingly immersive soundfield. Studio Ghibli's underwater seascapes take full advantage of the rear speakers, filling the ocean with rising bubbles, propelling jellyfish, groaning creatures, swashing fins, and song-like streams of magic. Above the water, the soundscape is just as engaging. Trees rustle and bend as howling winds whip across the ocean, boats creak and smack against the waves as the tides rise, and the pit-pat of rain subtly surrounds the listener whenever it has the opportunity. Better still, precise directionality transplants the two-dimensional image into a convincing three-dimensional space, pans are fluid, prioritization is spot on, dynamics are commanding, and Joe Hisaishi's score takes on a playful life all its own. In a word, Ponyo's English dub sounds amazing. The Japanese track is no slouch either, but a standard Dolby Digital mix, above average as it may be, can't quite compete.

To clarify: Disney's 640kbps Japanese track, if scored separately from its lossless counterpart, would earn a 3.5, while the English DTS-HD Master Audio dub, if scored separately as well, would earn a solid 4.5. The average of the two determined my final score.
