Could you guys ad the 1080p resolution in the playback settings so I can have the shows automatically play in 1080p

Fun fact: I'm a premium anime subscriber, but I still pirate your shit because of your shitty player.
Fix the player, I'm not joking, it's VLC-tier bad.
The old player you guys had from back before you went legal was way better than this hunk of junk.

Pretty cool news. Too bad I currently can't run anything over 480p without buffering to death, but it's something to look forward to. :)

Maybe it's just my eyes, but I can't see any difference between the example 720p and 1080p screenshots.

Too bad my internet sucks that I won't be able to watch up to 1080p quality.

Oh well, all you people with awesome internet, enjoy.

I'd just like to point out that this is actually an upscale as hardly any anime is animated at 1080 for TV broadcast (blu-ray releases use enhanced masters, and even some those are only 720p). From what I can see, there are only minor differences between the CR 720 and 1080 releases and even that is probably due to the 720 release being encoded at a lower quality, or possibly due to a placebo effect.

Seems like pretty scummy behavior to me, advertising 1080 when its just an upscale.

Edit Here are some screenshots showing further QUALITY in the 1080 encodes: http://imgur.com/Fwl2x,VlpZz,SWUYA,fIsCZ

you made my day...

Bleach and Fairy Tail isn't even airing digital, but you pretend to have 1080p.

The encoder can't even fix this problem... but now it's 1080p... horray!!!

The only thing that really is in Full-HD are the Subtitles... lol

Ill trade you your 1080p for that little fucking annoying ad of Nisemonogatari that was floating around the bottom of my screen I have to x out of when I log onto my paid account! No ads should mean no ads, if I wanna watch it I'll go find it my damn self.

This would be nice ... if it weren't for the fact that 1080p will eat the computer alive in terms of cpu requirements (because of FLASH!).
I still stay away from 720p for that very reason.

Awesome! Was wondering when this would finally happen.

Just upgraded to a 20Mb connection too. Should be a smooth ride. ;D
