Summer Wars

 (2009)

Summer Wars Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Timid eleventh-grader and math genius Kenji Koiso is asked by his secret crush Natsuki to come with her to her family's Nagano home for a summer job. Turns out Kenji discovers his "summer job" is to pretend to be Natsuki's fiance, for the celebration of Natsuki's spunky grandmother's 90th birthday. There, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can't resist solving it. As it turns out, his solution creates chaos within the virtual world of OZ, translating into anarchy in real-life.

Summer Wars Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 28Mbps), Summer Wars looks superb in high definition. Considering the bulk of my anime review slate involves budget-conscious television productions, it's always a pleasure to delve into the visual prowess of a heavy-hitting theatrical offering. As mentioned earlier in the review, the animation quality of Summer Wars is a bit hit-or-miss depending on the reality displayed, but regardless of the nuances in the hand-drawn or CG animation, the transfer itself is spot on. Line definition is crisp and detailed, avoiding any shred of blurring or stairstepping; the color palette is vivid and bright, with bold hues that match the inspiring nature of the storyline; and contrast differentiation is completely uncompromised, revealing every nuance against the predominantly white backdrop of OZ. Beyond the aforementioned visual strengths, I never noticed any instances of edge enhancement, banding, or digital anomalies, leaving me with an overall impression that's difficult to beat.


Summer Wars Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As is customary with a theatrical anime release, we're given the option of a surround mix on both the native Japanese and English dubbed offerings. This diverges from the situation we often find on television productions in Japan, which routinely deliver a 2-channel stereo mix (in case you weren't aware, in-home surround sound hasn't gained the foothold we've witnessed in America). Fortunately for us, this translates into a rare opportunity to enjoy a native track with the same level of immersion found on the English dub, ruling out the need for debate over which is the superior option. Getting down to the specifics of each audio track, we have excellent spatial separation during the frenetic scenes inside OZ, which range from a rollercoaster aerial battle to the creation of a monstrous demon built from millions of individual avatars. During these epic sequences, the audio mix delivers on all cylinders, but also tends to overshadow the subtleties of the dialog-heavy real world sequences. Such is the reality of contrasting elements in a production of this sort, since there's ultimately nothing wrong with the quality of the track at any given point, yet it still runs the risk of diminishing the level of enthusiasm felt by each viewer.

Taken as a whole, this is an above average audio presentation that should please the most discerning audiophile, despite not making it onto many lists of demo-worthy material (thanks entirely to the nature of the production).
