    Is Japanese anime considered film or video?

    Just wondering what setting I should be using on my Panasonic RP82.

    Doesn't the RP-82 have auto?

    If not, I'd guess video.

    As someone who watches anime, it depends. If you watch anime films such as "Princess Mononoke," then set the RP82 to "Film." If you watch televised anime such as "Dragonball Z," you should set the RP82 to "Video."

    I guess the true question would be what does the switch do to the signal? How does the display differ?

    I think I'll just leave it on film.

    Most of my anime is of the Akira, Ghost in the shell variety.

    Auto 1 lets the sage chip decide on it's own which mode to use and works darn near flawlessly.

    I had a JVC before which had a light on the front that changed color when it changed from film to video, and there would usually be a split second of combing when the change would occur in auto mode. With the same disc on the Panny in Auto 1 I don't see any combing at all.
