Zoids Guardian Force Anime Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2019-04-29 12:00:00

    We've updated the Guardian Force section with the final 3 episodes. This includes a large number of screencaps and episode summaries, along with featured character/Zoid lists. There's still a ton of Chaotic Century episodes that need to be updated to blu-ray quality, though.

    Official release news has been a bit slow since Wonderfest, but we've got some site-centric stuff to focus on. The first and most fun being a large update to the Anime > Chaotic Century > Concepts page! After receiving some of the production material we've been able to update with a ton of sketches. Because of the volume of images we'll be posting here we decided to split it up into several pages.

The new concepts are:
    Central Characters: Fiona, Hiltz, Prozen, Raven
    Side Characters: Herman, Rudolph, Schwarz
    Organoids: Ambient, Shadow, Specula, Zeke
    Zoids: Shield Liger

Zoids CC Media Box Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2016-02-07 07:00:00

    Its been a while! And an exciting day, for sure.

    We've updated the Chaotic Century Media Box section with the first two openings and endings. We used to have some of these but the links were broken, and they weren't very bandwidth friendly. We'll be adding the rest at a later date, so pardon the empty boxes for now!

Posted: 2015-09-18 06:00:00

Zoids Guardian Force Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2014-06-16 03:00:00

    We updated a couple days ago, as well! I wouldn't normally clarify but since its been a long time since we updated regularly I thought people might miss the earlier one.

    Four new Episode Summaries have been added to the Zoids Guardian Force section! This includes Blu-Ray quality screencaps as well as deleted scenes for Episodes 55 and Episodes 56. Episodes 57-58 do not contain any deleted scenes.

    Similarly the Zoids Media Box has been updated with the deleted scenes included in these episodes. At least where applicable.

CC VHS Stickers!  [Site]


Posted: 2014-03-06 07:00:00

    The Sales VHS set (but not the rentals) came with a Zoids Sticker Collection sheet in each box. You can see the corresponding sheet for each volume on their individual pages but if you wish to view them all at once, the section now has its own page in the "Assorted" category. It is listed under stickers.



 

Chaotic Century Anime Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2013-12-28 05:00:00

    We've continued work on getting the Chaotic Century and Guardian Force files converted to Blu-Ray media. Five new episode summaries have been added, episodes 50 through 54. This includes deleted scenes (with the exception of Episode 50 which has none) and blu-ray quality screencaps for all of the episodes. As before, they are sized down from the full size.

    If you want to skip directly to deleted scenes they are all cross posted to the Chaotic Century/Guardian Force Media Box.



 

Zoids Chaotic Century Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2013-12-20 01:00:00

    It's been a while, but we've got a decent update today! First in the anime section we've added two Episode Summaries for Guardian Force episodes 48 and 49. Episodes 46-49 have also been revamped with blu-ray quality screencaps. These are sized down from the originals because the blu-rays are actually so large that it just loses detail and demands unnecessary disk space for little result. Hopefully these are big enough!

    I realize that this is starting in the middle of Guardian Force but it's where I left off when searching down the deleted scenes. No worries, all of the CC/GF episodes will get Blu-ray Screencaps!

    In addition to the screencaps we've also added a Guardian Force section to the Zoids CC Media Box. It contains deleted scenes from the four episodes mentioned above. We'll add more episodes as we go along.



 

CC Anime / Media Box Update!  [Site]


Posted: 2013-12-01 01:00:00

    The Zoids Media Box has been updated! If you click on the Chaotic Century section you can find a new area for deleted scenes. These are scenes that were cut from the dub for one reason or another. They include not only generic censoring like blood and alcohol, but also some cool 2-3 second clips of the Zoids in combat that weren't shown.

    This includes only Chaotic Century. We will be adding Guardian Force clips later on. These scenes have also been added to their respective Episode Summaries under the anime section, but the content is the same between the two sections.

    In addition we've changed the screencap galleries in the Anime Episode Summaries to make them more even. Extra tall or wide images have been squished/shortened so that they should no longer mess up the row order. Soon we'll be trying to replace these with Blu-Ray quality screens but haven't been able to find a decent program yet.



 

Zoids CC Blu-Ray Review!  [Site]


Posted: 2013-09-03 02:00:00

    A partial review for the Blu-Ray Box has been uploaded to the DVD section (Which we will ammend with BR soon enough). This includes details on the extras, special features, and also includes a rip of the special video that is included as an opening credit for each volume of the Blu-Rays. A review for the holotech Liger Zero is in the works and will be posted soon.


 

Chaotic Century Blu-Ray Released!  [Site]


Posted: 2013-08-10 07:00:00

    The Zoids Blu-Ray box has been released! An unboxing was posted on the Zoids HMM Blog (seen here). We hope to have a review done for this by the next update, but there are a lot of things to go over for it in this news post.





    Below you'll see the unboxing image posted on the Koto blog and a couple of example screenshots. We'll go into quality in the bottom post.

    When it comes to physical extras the Blu-Ray set comes with a small Encyclopedia, a bit smaller than the Viz Zoids CC Comics. This contains more or less copied information from the original Zoids Encyclopedia with virtually no additional details.

    The case of the DVDs are in a book-like form and each disc gets its own book with the character images printed on the front (congratulations, Thomas! You get to be the very last disc!) and art printed on the sides. The quality is quite nice and contains the stock production art you've seen on other sites.

    If you ordered the Limited Production version you also received the clear HMM Blade Liger, which is cast in all transparent plastic. The quality of this kit seems much superior to the Holotech Shield Liger parts that were released earlier by Koto, and does not crumble like it did!





    Now for the actual Blu-Ray extras. The discs are all in Japanese. So far I've found no trace of a closed captioning track. It has no subtitles, Japanese or English, and no dual languages, as it is marketed only in Japan. The quality is by far better than the DVDs but scaled up you can see a sort of noise-reduction filter applied to the Zoids that gives them a watercolor feel, especially when in motion. You can see this clearly in the example images.

    The image below shows a comparison of the Blade Liger. On the left is the Blu-ray version and on the right is a screenshot directly from the DVDs. Even though a noise reduction effect is on the blu-rays, and sometimes detracts, the quality is still much superior. The colors contrast differently from the DVDs with reds leaning closer to true red or pink, while on the DVDs they appear orange and more saturated. There is no editing or digital touch ups in the comparison photo at all, with the exception of the blu-ray being resized to match the DVD size.

    The on-disc extras include a new CGI opening that we'll be uploading a low-resolution video of with the review next update! High quality scans of the CGI images used for postcard releases on the DVDs are included on Disc 10, along with small cgi turn-arounds of one or two Zoids. The final disc contains creditless opening and endings. Sorry to ramble at great lengths over the Blu-Rays! This concludes today's update.
