O___o Wow. Something very much so is amiss. For whatever it's worth, I remember buying my 1.11 copy at a Best Buy (or a similar store, possibly an online place) around the time it was first released.

Anybody know if Funimation has a proper means of contact? Or if they'd get a replacement disc? I don't think I have my receipt anymore but...

I'm glad to know this thread has a use, after all! :sweatdrop:

(Also: Is your copy of the 1.11 DVD reversed for Saigsu and Ravel when you try to watch the Rebuild of Evangelion 1.01 extra? I heard that's a common problem...)

But now I'm worried...does that mean some versions of the 2.22 DVD (or BD) are going to have this same problem while others aren't?

I pre-ordered mine from Amazon. And, yeah. Those two features are reversed. Too bad about your disc, though. Hope you can get a replacement.

Funimation, I love how firmly established of a business you are and the quantity of titles you posses. But, dude! Get your head in the game, man. I've always preferred The Right Stuf subs over yours because they put some effort in to its aesthetics. And you're features are all screwed over.

I thought those two features were reveresed on purpose?

I wasn't aware that they might have been reversed on purpose, though that doesn't even make sense to me. I don't know why one would purposely attribute work to an artist who wasn't responsible for the work. That's doesn't even seem like pretentious Anno thinking, that's just unprofessional.

Hey, SSD, if you have any luck in that endeavor, would mind passing on any information you could? Looks like I got the same second disc you did. I really wanted those trailers, too.
Fair warning: I have the quirk of reading your posts with the voice of your avatar.

I posted on the Funimation forums (my pic and FFF4ever's comparison pic), hopefully somebody can get back to me on this and I can get a replacement disc somehow because an error on their end isn't cool.

If Funimation refuse to replace it, I have a friend who'd be interested in my copy and I could just buy myself a new one...But the new 1.11 DVD (and 2.22 DVD!) better not have the same issue as before or else I'll :lastresort: .

slkdragon: I think your best bet would be to post in this thread as well (registering is really quick): http://community.funimation.com/tm.aspx?m=486530

At least that way they'll see it's just not one person complaining and several people have this problem. (Which hopefully would push them in the direction to follow-through with a Disc Replacement!)

In remembering some more, I ordered my 1.11 copy from Rightstuf last November (when I lived in a different state no less), and according to their FAQ, they have a 90 day return policy.

So I believe productconcerns@funimation.com is who you have to contact (thanks to Dri for the information!)

In order to get a replacement DVD or missing component, you will need to contact the store or online retailer from where you purchased. Our retail partners handle exchanges and replacements for customers. If you still have problems after you visit your retailer, send an email to productconcerns@FUNimation.com, and they will walk you through the steps to receiving a replacement.

Your disk is correct. A change was made to all disks after the first-run due to a contractual obligation with our licensor. I apologize for the inconvenience, but we are no longer producing the disk mentioned below.

Thanks,

Product Concerns


I really hope this means that whatever extras they have for 2.22 are the same extras they'll have for ALL the disks... I mean, yes there's going to be licensing issues but... ;_; Also, this is somewhat annoying for the fans who had no idea there WAS a change to begin with, but thems the breaks.

So I guess this means fans who want certain extras on their DVDs are going to be screwed out of them? The least you could do is post something about this somewhere, Funi! That way more people could have nabbed the first-press release when they had the chance!

This does bother me somewhat because principle of the thing and I'm anal-retentive like that.

For whatever it's worth, somebody started a thread on the Mania forums after my post(s) in the Funimation forums: http://www.mania.com/aodvb/showthread.php?p=1919774 Skimming the thread is what made me release that BOTH the Blu-Ray and DVD releases are missing extras with the later printings (eg, one guy said that he preordered the Blu-Ray had all the extras of the DVD release).

Maybe I should go ahead and buy Studio Khara's release of the films. :sweatdrop:

Wow. That's gotta suck. Glad I pre-ordered my 1.11 last year when I did because it has everything on the first press release. Extra's wise anyway.

Wow. So that's why my BD disc didn't have any of the same features that my DVD disc did. I got it well after it's disc release date to wait for a price drop.

Dude, if Funimation has to do something like that out of a contractual obligation to their licensor, they should have at least advertise the first edition disc prints as such, almost like a Collector's Edition gimmick or something. Put a "Collector's Edition" ad on the site or slap a "First Print Collector's Edition" sticker on the shrink-wrap around the DVD or something. That way we'd at least know.

If the side of your DVD/BD says something like "FN-09880" then it's an first print release. Good thing to keep in mind that maybe they could be found at stores...Maybe. (Supposedly at least, if somebody can confirm this for the DVD/BD, that'd be great.)

reminds me of when I found a CD used and I had to ask them to let me see the disc to see if it was the pressing I wanted

The only problem is that you have put the cart before the horse. Funi put out the first print in good faith believing that they had clearance for all materials included on the disc. Why would they put a special sticker on the 1st print run for something that they didn't think would be a point of differentiation down the road?

Conversely they intentionally made the 2nd print run's removed extras a silent omission because no one markets their current product as deficient, even if it is inferior to its original first print run.

Doesn't it sound more like they were forced to change the contents of the disk on later printings?

My 1.11 DVD has all of the bonus features on the 2nd disc and the number on it is FN-09882.

Interesting, mine has "FN-09882" on it and it's a second-print release.

The 1.11 DVD is FN-09882, the 1.11 BD is FN-09880. The 2nd pressing of each has a R1 appended to the SKU number on the laser-printing on the ring of the disc, I believe.

@ svenge and COACH: I would have thought Funi would have cleared the rights to anything within their releases before programming the discs, making one release a "Limited Edition" rather than an "Oops!" edition, but I guess not. Still, I feel some sort of notice to their customers of the change would be in order, even if just an apology or something on the web page. Maybe there was one, but I never saw it. Oh well. I'm not mad or anything. Just surprised. This is the weirdest thing to have happened to an official disc release I've ever purchased.

Strange, my disc has R1 on the laser SKU, and it's numbered FN-09882, and it has all the extras. What? Did I get lucky? Did I win the EVA lottery?
