    It keeps getting better, November 20, 2011

    The Anime Adict (St. Cloud Mn USA) –
      

    This review is from: Sekirei 2: Pure Engagement Complete Season (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray)

    Let me start by saying as expected if you have not watched the first season of this series don’t even try to watch this season. That said if you did watch the first season you are most definately going to want to watch this one.

    Sekirei was a bit of a surprise for me. Despie how it is advertised as yet another fan fair, panty on the brain and not much else series there is a great deal more to the show then that. Yes the curse has been broken we finally have a fan service anime with a BRAIN! Underneath all of the nudity, panties and bouncing there are likable characters with real personalities not to mention a fair story line. Yes that’s right this series actually has a purpose beyond fan service! But if you watched the first season you already know this,

    The second season here picks up a little while after the first and tasks off with a vengeance. A lot of the questions posed in the previous season are answered but enough is left out that they could make a third season if they so choose, it is even hinted at. Despite this there are enough loose threads tied up that you feel fine with it ending as it is.

    As with the previous season the animation is excellent, blending with 3d effects for some truly eye popping fight scenes and the voice acting top notch as well. Combined this with a decent, not excellent mind you, decent storyline and Sekirei is one of those rare series that while not one of the best anime ever made is most certainly among your favorites.

    In the end though the question is should I buy this season or series. Well let me be frank, it’s $60 and the show is only 13 episodes long, about 5 hours. While fun, enjoyable and among my favorites that is just too high a price for me to recommend anyone to buy. I suggest waiting for the price to either drop or until they come out with a complete series box set with both seasons for the same price before buying this little gem.

    Great Story!, November 15, 2011

    Ragnar (Denmark) –

    This review is from: Sekirei 2: Pure Engagement Complete Season (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray)

    This has all the hallmarks of this type of anime: the sexy fighting girls, the embarrassed, reluctant male hero, titanic battles, and a darling way of presenting young love.

    Still, it pushes things a bit! There is the over-arching story of a city being ruthlessly controlled by a corporate Police State; not a government, but a megacorporation that soared to power after its founder discovered a hidden technology on a remote island.

    But there is another part to the story: that of the BONDS of LOVE that can cause people to reach so deeply, and call so urgently upon their strength in order to protect those bonds, that something BRAND NEW can emerge — something wonderful!

    Even the WINGED (emerged) Sekireis are subject to all the usual frailties … jealosy, selfishness, wickedness. But the BIRDS of LOVE, as they are called, will teach and learn about love … as ordained by the Sekirei of Fate.

    As usual, the question looms: “What will prevail? The disasters brought about by human shortcomings, or that which lies on the other side of the BONDS of LOVE? And are the Sekireis and their Masters willing participants in the GREAT GAME (The Sekirei Plan), or are they helpless pawns, subject to the whims of a power-mad meglomaniac?

    You decide; but the girls are lovely, the action is great, and the story … well, after watching through season 2 …

    I want more!

    Water Celebration!

    … to be cont’d!

    This review is from: Sekirei 2: Pure Engagement Complete Season (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray)

    I saw Sekirei the first season and fell in love with the series. It shocked me a little at first with how much fan service was in it but it was more surprising to see an anime that came with fan service and actually still had an enjoyable story to it. I can not wait to have this added to my collection of anime that I already got

    Great calibration Blu-Ray for beginners!, November 13, 2010

    This review is from: Disney WOW: World of Wonder [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    If you’ve recently purchased or own an LCD, LED, Plasma, or DLP television, buy this Blu-Ray. Disney’s calibration disc is very user friendly and easy to use. As the previous reviewer did, my TV was already calibrated from settings I found on CNET and AVSForum. I was interested to see how my settings compared to the settings changed using this Blu-Ray. My already tweaked settings were pretty close to the settings after calibrating my TV from the blu-ray. I just had to tweak a few things. Regardless, I still give this disc 5 stars. The directions are very easy to follow, plus the blu-ray comes with an instruction booklet. I recommend reading the instruction booklet before using the blu-ray to calibrate your television.

    The blu-ray is very easy to navigate. If you need to return to a previous step, it’s very easy to do so. After you calibrate your television, there are clips from several Disney movies such as Bolt and Pirates of the Caribbean to view your settings in action. The second disc on the blu-ray called Visions: Inspired By Nature is a stunning HD demo reel. There are scenes of waterfalls, an ocean sunset, flower fields, desert vistas, mountain vistas, a fireplace scene, plus more. You can play each individual scene or run a loop. The second disc is approximately 64 minutes long. The second disc is something you can play in the background if you are having guests over or play it while reading a book or just relaxing.

    Overall, I highly recommend this to anyone who owns a high def television who hasn’t tweaked their settings. You will learn which each setting on your television does and it learn about surround sound. Like the previous reviewer stated, If you have already calibrated your TV from settings you found online, this disc probably won’t help you every much.

    Next best thing to a professional calibration., December 11, 2010

    I’m an ISF-certified HDTV calibrator and can highly recommend this disc to anyone with an HDTV who wants to get their display adjusted for better images but doesn’t want to invest in having a professional calibration done. I’ve got several other DIY “calibration” DVDs and this one is by far the easiest to use (particularly for first-timers) and does a better than average job of fine-tuning your HDTV. It’s the best investment you can possibly make in optimizing the performance of your new DLP, LCD, LED/LCD or plasma HDTV and you’ll be rewarded with much better images than your display exhibited out of the box. And, while it won’t allow you to properly adjust the color management system or fine-tune the grayscale performance that professional calibrators are able to do (with a $10,000+ plus investment in equipment and training!), it will get you much closer to industry standards and eliminate some of the more common adjustment problems such as the “torch mode” that most HDTV sets exhibit out of the box. Highly recommended and definitely well worth the small investment of time and money. You’ll also be better informed about what it takes to make great pictures (and convincing surround sound) and your home entertainment quotient is bound to increase significantly. Try it, you’ll definitely like it. Who knows? You might even be so impressed with how much your HDTV performance has increased that you’ll go to the Imaging Science Foundation website (www dot imagingscience dot com) and contact a professional calibrator to take you the rest of the way to the maximum performance your new HDTV is capable of with a professional ISF calibration.

    Wonderful user-friendly calibration dvd —- but will it help you?, November 5, 2010
    By

    This review is from: Disney WOW: World of Wonder [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    Recently purchased a 55″ Samsung UN55C6800 LED TV and was looking for a calibration disc. I was about the purchase the DVE HD Basics Blu-Ray but saw a press release concerning this DVD, so I decided to wait until this one came out and give it a go.

    I will preface this by saying I had already used calibrated settings from CNET as well as users on the AVS forums to tweak my TV already. Before using the WoW Blu-Ray I would say I was about 95% satisfied with the picture my TV delivered using the settings I found online. The main reason I bought the blu-ray is I was just interested in seeing all the (albeit non-professional) test patterns used to calibrate a TV and so forth. I went in to this purchase not expecting any vast improvements in Picture Quality over my already somewhat tweaked settings. I know this disc is no substitute for a ISF professional calibration and was not expecting such results.

    First, for people who havent purchased, head over to Disney’s website and search for this blu-ray. On its Disney page, you’ll find at the bottom a link to download the “WoW Technical Manual.” This is basically an instruction booklet on how to use the blu-ray, and I found it to be a nice read before I actually received the blu-ray itself. It goes over a lot of the test patterns and how they work.

    Here are the contents of the blu-ray:

    The discover section basically gives you an overview of what HDTV is, how a picture is composed, etc.

    EXPERIENCE

    So….how did it work for me?

    First, I love the included manual. Very well written and easy to use. Also, this blu-ray comes with a blue filter gel used to calibrate your colors. (I believe the DVE Blu-Ray also comes with color gels).

    The actual DVD menus are wonderful too. Each test pattern has three sections: Overview (description of whay the particular TV setting is important), Instructions (shows the test pattern and clearly talks about how to use it), and finally just the test pattern itself, allowing you to tweak and take as long as you want.

    Depending on how familiar you already are with your TV and if you wanted to watch the “Discover” portion of the disc, you can expect to spend anywhere from 1 hour to a few hours with the disc. There is a second included disc called Visions that has a bunch of nature scenery/etc to show off your TV. I did not care for the second disc, but i could see how someone could enjoy it.

    At the end of the day, after running through all the tests (some multiple times because other tests later on may change your initial settings), I only changed two settings on my current set-up, and they were very small changes at that. I was disappointed that my settings didnt change too much, but like i said in the beginning I was already very happy with my TV’s picture using settings I found online.

    For what it is (an average-joe TV calibration blu-ray), this product is wonderful. I highly recommend it for people purchasing their first HDTV as it thoroughly discusses everything a person new to the technology would need to know. If you are the type of person who buys a new TV and starts watching it day 1 on the default settings, this dvd may help a LOT. However, for those who already play around with settings, consumer calibration dvds such as this one will probably not help all that much – especially since we can get decent settings online already from professional review sites or forums.

    However, since I am rating the product, it undoubtedly deserves 5 stars. Easy to navigate, well produced, professional, etc. Just understand that if you’ve already tweaked your TV settings using information you’ve gathered online, this dvd may not bring that much of a change to your picture settings!
