Looks better of course, but I don't think that the result is worth the pain. You would have to put 2 screens side by side for me to see the difference, but Bicubic on its own looks sharp enough for me.
I would upscale only if I have to. Like if I've got a 512x384 video that I need to get on DVD-Video or something like that.

OK, guess I'm gonna have to show you everything in detail.
Here is a side by side comparison:

See how much is missing from your picture on the upper and lower parts? About 96 pixels, that's 20% of the original height!
Normally they would crop 25% to get the 16:9 image, but I guess they worked on a slightly bigger image for the remaster (less crop margin), that's why I have a few pixels missing on the left and right sides.

By the way, the blu-ray is not an upscale from the DVD, it is true 1080p, but as mutilated as the DVD of course, since the 20% are missing on the blu-ray as well.
I invite you to read this review about one of the blu-ray releases. It says:
Worse still, the "widescreen" presentation has been achieved by cropping the original 4:3 image. Not only is this an absolute disservice to diehard fans of the material, it's grossly negligent of the animators' original intent
See how much fun you get when you buy Funimation discs?
