Is there any chance to include Himeka Shiromoto in future Nice Age fund projects?
Yea, but newer Nice Age stuff probably needs to be funded as singles until we get more fans into the group. they cost 30-50% more than a standard bluray

Its only been up a few minutes but judging by the survey its very possible, only downside that i have to admit to is that the past Anju and Ai funds were a bit of a waste seeing that there are 4k versions, I'll be making up for this by allowing anyone who participated in them to join in on any repeat funds at a very discounted price.

There's a similar issue with Tsukasa Kanzaki who I never even knew was listed on that site, her BFAA blurays are available in 4k there too, I'll work with the tsukasa project funders to see if we can get those versions.

I cant reverse any purchases on past blurays so will just have to be more careful from now on.

For future reference if you see me funding something and you are aware of a better source don't hesitate to notify me of it, the purpose of getting blurays is that they usually beat web versions but standard blurays cannot reach 4k quality, so any web listed 4k versions will be superior.

Here is how i would rank quality for gravure copies:

4k Bluray Rip (Never seen 4k Bluray Gravure) > 4K WEB DL > Bluray Rip / ROM > FHD WEB DL > FHD WEB Rip > DVD Rip > SD WEB DL > SD WEB Rip

Note: A ROM is when a disc is formatted for storage instead of playback so anything can be in the readable data if it fits, including 4k video files

Hmm let's say that some videos would have couple of different versions available, like, 720p, 1080p & 4K, would it be possible to pay for the lesser quality version? Especially if there are price differences.

Personally I never need any higher quality versions of movies than 720p, for me keeping higher quality movies is bad news, since they take SO much space. I already have like 10 HDD machines and I'm not looking forward to buying more of those. My house is already ready to turn into a Terminator.
I can't even spot the quality difference between 720p & 1080p usually. Which is why I have to always make 720p versions out of 1080p & 4K files, so I'm constantly converting things.
I think the pros and cons of 720p vs. 1080p & 4K files are these.
4K etc:

Positive:
- Picture quality

Negative:
- Size, size does matter, no matter what anyone says :)
- Usability. If you don't have a decent computer or some other machine you cannot use things like 4K files, the bigger the size the bigger chance there is an compatibility problems.
- Price (?), probably.
- For the uploader it's more work to deal with huge files.
- For the downloader it's more work to deal with huge files.

720p files makes all of these negative sides disappear, I like that. It's still also has a good picture quality usually, at least I can see things clearly enough.

That's a good point, different people have different situations, though I think that the funded version should still be highest because we can always reduce them ourselves. I'm very soon upgrading my server for another few tb so I don't mind hosting multiple versions if that's something the group desires.

About the price part, due to the way the industry works the quality doesn't quite align with the price, the lowest quality version which is usually dvd or in rare cases like spiceTV the sd download costs around 3800 yen, a digital hd version can run you cheaper most of the time since you don't have to pay for any physical goods. For example Yunon's dvds costed more than the whole previous Yui natsuki purchase despite being overall less quality.

Yeah I agree :)

The whole gravure etc. business is like a mad project, and some japanese companies business practices as well, sometimes they just don't want the customer's money. Physical releases definitely tend to be more expensive, often way more expensive. Bad news for a collectors like me.
