    Did a search and couldn't find anything. I thought I had read that Dark Angel S1 was available in widescreen (16x9) in Japan. But cdjapan and amazon.co.jp show it as 4x3. I see there is a UK and Aussie set in widescreen but can't find any reviews of the UK set. Does anyone have these and can confirm they're widescreen? Hows the PQ?

    Dont know if this will make a difference, but the creator's intended aspect ratio is 1.33:1 and not widescreen.

    Yeah, I found that out recently after doing some research. I also found some screen shots on a Scandanavian web site. No of the shots looked like widescreen helped the composition and seemed just like dead space on the sides. I wonder if this improves in Season 2?
