It's actually airing in HD though, unlike Omamori Himori which is just a crappy 480i upscale.
Why do they even bother animating in HD if they won't release in HD? Eh, well, I guess it lets them rerelease it down the line, and I'm not gonna object to getting HD for the initial airing (glad CR got a 720p option on this one). At least the two shows I'm likely to buy this season are getting BD releases (Hidamari is a definite, Sora no Woto is looking very probable). Durarara!! has a shot at third, though. Eh, I need to keep myself to no more than two anyway so this should help me stick to that.
Too bad the one shows are all 6+ discs except Chuu-bra!!, which is a much nicer 4. If only that could be the standard...
