View Full Version : Haibane Renmei original aspect ratio?

06-19-2006, 10:53 PM
Hello all! I would like to ask you to help me choose which version of Haibane Renmei DVD set to buy. The choice is between the two disc import (for me anyways), and the four disc US version. The Import is 30 dollars (canadian) and the US version is 75 dollars. I would prefer to go with the import since it is cheaper, however the main problem for me is that it has a 4:3 aspect ratio (fullscreen) and the more expensive set is 16:9 (widescreen). I personally prefer to watch any show in its original aspect ratio. As far as I have found the original aspect ratio is 16:9. So my first question: is the original aspect ratio 16:9 or 4:3. And second question is if it is indeed 16:9, do I lose anything important?

Which one would you buy?

also if anyone could post some screenshots of the fullscreen version I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you
