RoboGeisha Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 15Mbps), RoboGeisha looks surprisingly clean in its transition to high definition. Nobody ever expected a film with such a low budget to reach demo-worthy heights, so perhaps my enthusiasm should be tempered by an acknowledgement of my low expectations at the outset, but even with the inexpensive sets and awkwardly incorporated CG effects, the film retains a level of clarity that falls in the above average range. Likewise, the use of color throughout the film is quite vibrant, bringing out the crimson tones of Yoshie's cloak, while subsequently delivering skin tones that never veer away from a naturalistic palette. The depth of the image is further enhanced by spot-on contrast differentiation, which highlights such things as the reflection of light on a blade (see screenshot #1), or the subtleties of background props during low-light sequences (see screenshot #2). This wouldn't be possible without precise black level depth, allowing shade variation more room to work within each shot. All in all, this is proficient visual presentation courtesy of FUNimation, further demonstrating the potential for low budget films to impress in high definition.


RoboGeisha Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Although the technical merits of the visual presentation emerged victorious, the same can't be said of the audio offerings on the disc. I'm sure FUNimation did everything they could given what they have to work with, but when you have front heavy sound design on the native track, there's not much a lossless upgrade can do. Sticking with the Japanese mix, we get reasonable clarity and volume balance, but there's a great deal missing in the immersion department. This is a zany movie to its core, but when the audio is this subdued, it honestly feels as if you're missing a key component in the overall equation. Matters improve somewhat on the English 5.1 track, but unlike the dubbed presentation of anime, live-action films are difficult to stomach without the voice-acting of the original actors. Lip movements don't blend seamlessly with the spoken words, dialog has a tendency to lose a fraction of the intended message (a by-product of translation), and it's just plain difficult to put an English spin on a production this culturally defined. Don't get me wrong, the English dub certainly delivers the sense of immersion that's missing in the Japanese offering, but it still felt like I was choosing between the lesser of two evils. In the end, both audio tracks remain serviceable from a technical standpoint, but remain far from ideal in comparison with the best Blu-ray has to offer.
