I’m sure all the people who care already knows, but just in case DJ Bouche has a really nice selection of remixes and midi related to Suzumiya Haruhi no Uutsu. Download and all that. And it is good–the tech spins the familiar hits under a new light.
Just like having those 720p encoded raws for the show, on a Sony KDS-60A2000, can spin up a new flavor for an old anime. I guess this blog entry could also serve as a mini-review if you’re looking to buy a nice microdisplay. It really looks nice.
Nice might even be an awfully inadequate understatement. I’m not entirely sure if the High-Definition broadcast of Suzumiya Haruhi was in 1080i or not, but that must have been jaw-dropping if you were watching it on a nice HD display. Hare Hare Yukai on this set was like that for me, even if people complain how the VGA port only allows 768 vertical resolution max, giving me a nice, but “not as big as it could be” replay. I still dropped jaws.
The picture up there is from my phone, and it doesn’t do anything justice, let alone a HD display in a relatively dark room, so never let the picture influence you in terms of what I am saying (always, in fact). Considering that I have already watched the first episode (well, episode 2) 5 times before today, going through it twice more on this set still leaves me hungry for the rest. I suppose that shows how much I enjoy this episode, but I’d like to think it’s because you really enjoy it differently watching it on a big TV, Hi-Def, than watching it on your monitor (well, also Hi-Def I suppose).
And … yeah. Why am I talking about it when I still have 13 episodes left to go? I could be watching it right now! Chronology for a second rewatch is what the Kyoani doctors have called for, so be it.
