Ikki Tousen BD

Seems that the original Ikki Tousen has been released on BD. I was curious if it was an upscale, like the Haibane Renmei BD was.

It doesn't look like it to me. Here's a 1080p picture of Hakufu's boobs (NSFW). It looks like they applied a bit of sharpening to it (you can see light fringes around the black lines) but it wasn't terribly aggressive.

I guess it was digitized again at higher resolution. The show came out in 2003, which is a bit early for end-to-end digital.

UPDATE: When you have nothing else to post, post cheesecake!

UPDATE: This wasn't quite what I meantt.

1 Even when digital painting first came in, there were always different processes for it.  Some of them left data that upscaled very cleanly.  Others, didn't.

Then there's Card Captor Sakura, which was put to 35 mm film stock for some strange reason, so you can have a native 1080p release.
