Bringing back the topic a bit for this shot I've complained before, I figured I would check out the original storyboard art and... wow! All the detail was *AT LEAST, ORIGINALLY* intended to be there. I have little doubt that they saw the finished material and didn't like it, and darkened it to what's in the final version. But this is very interesting!

I figured as much. Also, it seems like the original had some kind of yellow backlighting that added an extra glow to the lights, if that makes sense. Maybe that's why the original had a yellow tint.

Cel animation is so mysterious to me!

Looks very promising! Seems like they got rid of a lot of the dust and artifacts and Im not sure how to feel about that, it kinda gave the show part of its feel, but wow... it sure looks HD now... never thought Id see the day!

What do you think are the chances of Warner Archive releasing Justice League Action on Blu-ray at this stage? I was hoping there would be news by now.
They could announce it at NYCC and release it this fall, but I'd guess a 2019 release since they seem to be on an annual pattern of a season set and movie when it comes to Blu. They already had 2 Blu-ray releases this year, Teen Titans season 1 and Sub-Zero, and 2 DVD releases, Static. Whereas, last year, I think it was 5 - 3 DVD releases, Zeta and two Static, and The Brave and The Bold season 3 and Mask of the Phantasm on Blu.

The cover art for the regular edition release of Batman: The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray set will hit November 27, 2018. Package artwork is below.

I like that much better. Will the set be cheaper?

Also why does it say it's rated PG when the series was TV-Y7? Are they rating the entire set based on Mask of The Phantasm?

The rating on the back packaging is for Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. The regular edition is priced at $89.95, which means it will likely be available for lower at some retail outlets. Minor additional details are up at The World's Finest.

That is a much more reasonable price. That being said, as long as Batman and Robin: The Lost episode is not on the set, I don't actually need to double dip. My DVD sets will suffice. Thanks, James!

Stephanie Sheh voicing Izzy Park the same way she does Sailor Moon has me considering the chance of Nazneen Contractor dubbing some "Sailor Moon" episodes I currently dont plan to buy.
Watched the newest Halloween yesterday
I can’t express my unpopular opinions without someone yelling or disagreeing at me why I’m a monster for thinking that way (liking adult animation, SpongeBob’s new episodes are inferior, etc.)
If you have Starz Encore Family (Not Kids & Family, but Family...) 1 hour as of this post, they'll be playing "Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas" and "Sonic Christmas Blast". (3:19pm-4:06pm EST) Both will play again at some point.
I'm at episode 50 of {Batman: TAS ∧ Hey Arnold}.
