I knew that it was upscale till now. Does that mean that after summer 2010 they started to produce it in 720p?

Well, I asked TAKA fansubs on the issue and here is what they wrote:
"Naruto started airing in real HD around episode 150-something, so it's been in real HD for quite a while."
So thats it. Real HD now, forget the 480p
I hope the HS 720p releases are no upscales as well, but who cares. Noone who wants quality archives their releases anyway.
The question is, whcih Series of "Naruto" do you mean ? The first Series or "Shippuuden" ?
The fact is, that the HD Version of Naruto started in Episode 55 of Shippuuden.
Anyway, what ist HS ?
Shippuuden of course. Yes, it started airing in HD after 55-th, but the episodes were upscales and not real HD. In other words, the only difference in video quality between 480p and 720p was the TV station's logo and the OP/EDs. This was discussed in deph on the Dattebayo page back then. But in summer 2010 looks like it stopped being an upscale and became real HD.
Cose 2 days ago I still thought that it was upscale: http://gorry.haun.org/pw/?20091001_tvaformat
Old info I guess. I had an argument over this so I asked here. But TAKA were quite fast in answering my question. Still, if someone here has info from other capper/fansub groups about this feel free to post
