I started the show yesterday and couldn’t get past the first half of the first episode because of this. The show seems good but the video quality is just bad. It looks like someone took a SD version of Outlaw Star and then just upscaled and stretched it to 16:9.

Why they would do this on purpose perplexes me. Hopefully the Blu-ray is different but I’m not sure I want to pay to support that buisiness model.

Personally, I think the animation style suits well with the atmosphere of the anime. At a certain degree it's more "badass" (overstatement). It's a subjective concept.

Anyways, watch the anime in 720p. I recommend downloading IDM, then downloading from OpenLoad servers.


I watch on a 4K TV and visually it looks like garbage. I’m into the story but look is just bad.

personally, anything is fine to me. I accept everything as is. If it's bad animation, be it, accept it. Just take it as, oh, this must be their style of animation.

I know, critics, but what of it really?

Funny how you guys jhdge this show for the scaling while being ok with other shows like Food wars relying on so many still shots.


And yet it has one of the higher scores of this season on MAL.


Yes. I know for an anime MAL scores are very important and Japan follows it.

Quality has no factor in popularity. 3-gatsu no Lion wasn't even popular last seasons among Japanese otaku.

It's called art style. The show is not trying to look clean like every modern anime. It'is trying to look like old classics such as Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, Michiko to Hatchin. When anime looked better and was more original.

405p resolution is not an artstyle.

It looks so "old" because they made it like that. It was not cutting corners but instead more work. they first made it 1080p then downscaled it to upscale it back to 740p. It was made that way to look like old classics such as cowboy bebop

So lower quality is not a artstyle? Then fuck me 8-Bit is also not a artstyle too.

No, it's not. low-res isn't artstyle.

It actually looks really good in my opinion, and i'm not even an Ashita no Joe fan.

Megalo Box has a great 90's rough look, the scene with JD riding on his motorcycle on the first episode kind of reminded me of the style of Akira, not that crisp but still stylish with the neon lights against the dark pavement.

Too early to tell if they won't use the resources they are saving now to use in the actual fight scenes later in the anime.


There was a fight scene in the second episode bro

If you don't like it.. Why do you watch it? I personally like the old stuff... It reminds me of Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo. I rather have this then those garbage animes these days...


Except those shows actually look pretty good

Seriously OP if you don't like TMS's choice to downscale then upscale it for a more retro appearance then nobody forcing you to watch it, plenty of viewers are perfectly fine with this choice and enjoy the series despite the overall picture quality.

To me you just sound self entitled and hellbent on trying to make your opinion fact.

It's the fact that this is blurry low-res, you can't deny that

I was actually interested in watching this anime but what they have done is simply unacceptable.
I'm watching anime since 2012. I also play games, sometimes.

Don't bother me if you want to 'become friends' or things like that.
It's tiresome. I know you just want to collect some meaningless numbers.
Current thought: How many people will spark H. Charlotta just for blue pot?

the art already looks retro, why would you need to make the animation bleh? that should never be the case. older shows and movies that are "retro" have great animation. ashita no joe has great animation. this can't be an exception

and Episode 3 and 4 are good animation also(3 had great because of all the small quirky character animation throughout that episode like this for example https://twitter.com/AnimeAjay/status/987787283863654400)

Here is a little more if you want some more examples https://www.sakugabooru.com/post?tags=megalo_box+

I feel you. Dropped this after 10 seconds.
What they did is just dumb. I might just watch Joe until the BD of this comes out with an acceptable quality (or so I hope).

And I hate how people are simply accepting this. It COULD look BETTER, but for some stupid artistic decision it isn't. If you like low-res so much, just downscale it yourselves! Let me have my glorious 1080p, please.

(Btw, saying it is to imitate old anime is also plain stupid. Old anime looks great when remastered)

I absolutely love this style.
It is very hardcore and rough, it reminds me Hokuto no Ken.

Very smart choice, in my opinion.
