Hello all,

I was about to purchase the R1 Astro Boy 2003 Series DVD collection, and I noticed that the aspect ratio is 1.33:1.
Now, the R2/R4 DVDs which have been released are in the aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (16x9 enhanced), and they look very nice.

Anyways, could someone tell me what the correct aspect ratio is?

Cheers,
Ben

The show got cropped when the series made it's debut in the US on Kids WB. It should be in widescreen, but sadly isn't.... no original japanese audio either.

Damn. Oh well, looks like I will have to buy the R4 DVDs instead.
