Fortunately, home-theater fans, who tend to be an older demographic with more money to spend on those actual hardware purchases the industry depends on, tend to worry about more specific ideas of film interest/preservation than the chances of their simply getting laid.
Trust me, you get to the right age, one seems a lot more interesting than the other...


This is about 4K media. Not physical/digital media.


Well, that actually IS the problem at the moment:
The current 4K industry is an Empire of Dreams, based on two battling unproven crackpot thirdhand theories about "the audience" that don't seem to be mutually compatible--Namely, the debate between physical and digital media.
We've got an industry divided between one set of power-players hoping it'll be ALL 4K disk and one hoping it'll be ALL 4K streaming/VOD, and neither one has the basic grasp of the audience's idea of "Co-Existence".

So, most of 4K is riding on hoping the "marketplace will decide" the Final Apocalypse Battle between physical and digital, and some of the more paranoid and cheapskate studios, like Warner, have heavily, heavily got their money on Digital, in the hopes they won't have to make nasty expensive Blu-ray disks anymore, and that we'll all believe them if they say so enough times.
At the moment, all we've got in favor of 4K are gamers and new-set buyers who say "Kewwlll!", but neither one really has enough vested interest in the P/D battle to have a serious say in the outcome--Either way, they tend to look like the "No opinion" crowd that tends to either frustrate the argument or dismiss it completely. When you Take Anything You Can Get, nobody tends to take your opinion seriously.

Nope, no anime (that I know of) supports a 4k resolution. They certainly COULD make anime 4k, but that's only changing a resolution, and there's really no point in that when it looks the exact same (can be argued).


there's 4K anime.. but it's only on blu-ray disc

this is the only 4K anime at the moment
http://www.rightstufanime.com/Mobile-Suit-Gundam-Thunderbolt-ULTRA-HD-Blu-ray

when 4K format is the norm then you might see 4K anime.. honestly.. for a bunch of lines.. having 4K will not make a difference

I never really understood the reasoning behind 4kTV. I don't need a higher resolution than what I already have and most types of graphics wouldn't even benefit from it.

IMO 4k resolution is a big waste.



most or all tvs (from major manufacturers ) coming out in May-June 2017 will be 4K

the same when they replaced 720P HDTVs with 1080p HDTs.. the advance of technology

good luck trying to find a new 1080p tv set in 2018-2019.. they will phase them out by then like Plasma and the old LCD tvs..

The main reason for why anime is not in 4K is cost. Animation is expensive at the end of the day most anime are lucky if they make their production cost back. That being said to go from 1080P to 4K means updating your production workflow (Tools, Computers and animation software and hardware) Mastering equipment to make 4K video and master Ultra Blu-rays, recording equipment. Training staff on the new equipment/Software My best guess is with NHK's pushing for 8K. I would think animation companies are waiting for 8K to mature before making a big investment in Time and money and most will skip 4K and go straight to 8K production . They will be able to down res the 8K masters to 4K if need be. On Cruncy's Side 4K uses a ton more bandwidth than 1080P so there Datacenter will need to grow and a big Fiber pipe to feed the content if there making the upgrade I would advice them to be 8K ready as well.

Considering that a lot of anime is just upscaled from 720p, 4k native anime won't be a standard for a while. i do know that a Gundam series (forgot which one) is going to be released on 4k blu ray.

There are many folks speaking in here who lack actual knowledge on the subject material.

There would be no point. They are not making anime in 4k resolution right now, so all you would get is a show that has been upscaled so that it doesn't look like shit on a 4k display.

I see the difference in 4k compared to 1080 in tv shows and i dislike it. Feels like the actual shows have bad camera shots.

This is currently the only known 4K UHD HDR anime at the moment.

My galay s8+ phone supports resolutions higher than 4k and i can tell you it is overrated. My tv does 1080i and beyond the more dynamic color available on my phone there is nothing to be gained by watching content that is in 720p in anything higher.

As a matter of fact watching 720p vidio looks worse on higher rez devices.kinda like warching old 80's tv shows look horrible on even the cheapest new tv.
