Ever since then, I've been curious to compare Japanese and American DVD releases. In the case of Animeigo's release of Macross, although I knew something was off on the video quality (bless their little hearts to try to restore the series, sadly it didn't work so well), I was curious about the Japanese release.
Although the Animeigo release is dark versus the yellow-tinted release from Bandai Visual's 2000 release, Animeigo does win in one category: image size. Yes, Animeigo shows a great deal more of picture versus both Bandai's 2000 release and the new remastered version. Color and image quality is completely off, but hopefully one day that can be fixed.
Here are some simple screenshots of the 2000 release and Animeigo's. Enjoy.
