Anchor Bay’s Blu-ray, DVD Replacement Program for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions

If you purchased Anchor Bay Entertainment’s Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Blu-ray and DVD, you are probably already aware of two problems afflicting these products, neither of which appear in the video products released in other territories.

The first issue emerges when playing the movie in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. The subtitles that are displayed are not actually translations of the Japanese dialogue. Rather, these subtitles match up line-by-line with what is spoken in the English-dubbed dialogue, and are also used for the subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing that appear when playing the movie in English. In other words, they are so-called dubtitles. The English version of the movie contains original writing and is not a direct translation of the Japanese dialogue.

The second issue is that the movie is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio rather than its original 1.85:1 letterboxed aspect ratio. A 1.78:1 picture completely fills the screen of a standard widescreen display, but comes with a loss of some of the left and right sides of the picture.

I reached out to Anchor Bay for comment about these issues and the company has replied with details about how it is handling this movie going forward.

Regarding the subtitles, “Replacement discs are in the works to fix the ‘dubtitle’ issue,” explained an Anchor Bay rep. The company is currently “[w]orking with [4K Media] to confirm everything is accurate with the Japanese subtitles prior to manufacturing new discs.”

As for the aspect ratio, the cropping of the video was intentional and will not be changed, as “this is [an] original framed presentation without the 1.85 matte added in,” said Anchor Bay.

Anchor Bay was unable to comment on whether the replacement discs will eventually be available for sale in retail stores, and if they are, whether there will be a way to visually examine the packaging to determine if it contains an old disc or a replacement disc.

What Should You Do Now?

Anchor Bay Entertainment will be replacing its Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Blu-ray and DVD for anyone who is not satisfied with the products. To request a replacement, please send an email to:

\textrm{\textbf{lionsgateshop}\ [at-sign]\ \textbf{orderassistance}\ [dot]\ \textbf{com}}

(This is the correct email address to contact. Lionsgate is the parent company of Anchor Bay.)

You will be asked to provide your contact information, location and date of purchase, and photographs of your receipt, packaging, and discs.

“Discs will be shipped as soon as possible to the core fans who reach out to this customer service email,” stated Anchor Bay.

If you have not purchased Yu-Gi-Oh! DSoD and want to ensure that you receive a copy that has the corrected subtitles, the easiest thing to do is to purchase the copy currently available on store shelves, then email Anchor Bay to guarantee yourself a corrected version once it becomes available.

Note that Anchor Bay is not recalling any products — the BD and DVD with the defective subtitles will continue to be sold in stores. Since Anchor Bay is unable to confirm when or if the corrected BD and DVD will eventually be available in stores, and whether it will even be possible to distinguish between the old and corrected products, there is no point in waiting for the corrected products to become available before making a purchase. If you wait, you may still end up buying an old product and having to contact Anchor Bay for a replacement anyway. So you might as well buy now, email Anchor Bay, and be among the first to get a replacement.

Also note that Anchor Bay has not yet manufactured the replacement discs. Since the discs still need to be reauthored, reprinted, and shipped — not to mentioned checked for errors all along the way — the replacement process could take months, not days or weeks.

Anchor Bay’s replacement program is only intended for the United States. Even though its region A/1 products are playable on equipment used in other markets and are available for sale in other markets, Anchor Bay itself is only the distributor for the U.S. and is thus unable to provide support to anyone in other territories who purchased its products.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Blu-ray and DVD cover mock-ups from Anchor Bay Entertainment

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions has arrived on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay
Entertainment! The United States and Canada are the last of the major English-speaking markets to receive this movie on home video. Yu-Gi-Oh! fans in the United Kingdom received their own copy from Manga Entertainment UK on May 29, while Australia and New Zealand received it shortly after that on June 7 from Madman Entertainment.

Surprisingly, each of the companies offers different content and extras with their home video releases. Some of them even contain unwanted content, like cropped videos, incorrect aspect ratios, and dubtitles. Argh! Which version should the discerning Yu-Gi-Oh! fan buy?

This post offers an overview and comparison of the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Blu-ray and DVD products from Anchor Bay, Manga UK, and Madman. It also takes a brief look at the BD and DVD products from Marvelous in Japan. Screenshots captured from all of the discussed products are at the end of this post.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions from Anchor Bay Entertainment

Anchor Bay’s region A Blu-ray and region 1 DVD (pictured above) include both the English and Japanese audio tracks of the movie. Both languages have a 5.1 surround sound mix. The English version of the movie includes subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing (SDH) that can be toggled on and off. The Japanese version includes subtitles that are automatically turned on, though they fortunately aren’t burned into the video (“hard subbed”). More on these subtitles in a moment.

Anchor Bay’s BD and DVD have the distinction of being the only releases that contain two video tracks. One is the English-language video with translated cards, signs, and credits. The other is the original Japanese-language video with Japanese credits. However, the song “To Believe In Something,” which plays during the credits in Marvelous’ BD and DVD, does not play here during the Japanese credits. Instead, viewers hear a longer version of “Yu-Gi-Oh! Theme: The Dark Side of Dimensions” as the credits roll. (This was also the case when Eleven Arts screened the Japanese version of the movie in theaters. Looks like music licensing issues rear their ugly heads yet again.)

Furthermore, only Anchor Bay’s BD and DVD have the English dub that includes the winners of 4K Media’s voice-over contest. The English dub released in other territories have the winners’ lines read by the movie’s other cast members.

Anchor Bay’s releases include four special features. In “Favorite Moments with the Cast,” the voice actors of the main characters reminisce about performing in the original anime. “Q&A with Dan Green” and “Q&A with Eric Stuart” feature the two leading men chatting about their history and memories with the show and what they think of the characters they play. And last but not least, “Show Us Your Cards!” immortalizes the biggest Yu-Gi-Oh! fans and their favorite cards on a massive wall of selfies.

Anchor Bay’s products suffer from two glaring problems. The first is its subtitle track for the Japanese version of the movie. These subtitles aren’t actually a translation of the Japanese dialogue. Instead, the lines are taken directly from the English SDH — in other words, they are dubtitles. Sadly, this is not the first time that an Anchor Bay anime has been plagued by dubtitles. Most recently, the company’s Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex BD released earlier this year suffered from dubtitles and bizarre audio errors. The company further drew the ire of anime fans when it tried to brush this problem under the rug.

The second problem is the aspect ratio of the picture. As seen in the screenshots below, DSoD is presented here in 1.78:1, which completely fills the screen of a standard widescreen display. However, the correct aspect ratio is supposed to be 1.85:1 letterboxed. In order to maintain the 1.78:1 ratio, some of the left and right sides of the picture have been cropped out. Anchor Bay is the only distributor of this movie to hack up the video in this way.

I’ve reached out to Anchor Bay about these issues and will post an update if I receive a response. Update (July 11): Anchor Bay has responded and outlined a replacement program for its products.

Anchor Bay’s Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions BD and DVD sell for a suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98 respectively. Each includes a Gold Rare Obelisk the Tormentor card, while supplies last.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions from Manga Entertainment UK

Manga UK’s region B Blu-ray and region 2 DVD (pictured below) also include both the English and Japanese audio of the movie. Both languages have a 2.0 stereo and 5.1 surround sound mix. However, only the English-language video with translated cards and signs is present; the Japanese-language video is not. But since there are no cuts to the movie, both the English and Japanese audio align with the visuals without any problems.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Blu-ray and DVD cover mock-ups from Manga UK

Manga UK includes one set of subtitles with its videos: an accurate translation of the Japanese dialogue. These subtitles are, as far as I can tell, the same subtitles that appeared in Eleven Arts’ theatrical screenings.

Manga UK’s DVD is the only one out of all the DVDs discussed here that uses the PAL encoding system. Madman Entertainment’s DVD does not, even though Oceania has traditionally used this format. Playing at 25 frames per second instead of 23.97, videos converted into PAL characteristically have slightly higher-pitched audio and poorer video quality.

Oddly enough, while Manga UK’s videos do utilize letterboxing to maintain a wider picture than Anchor Bay’s videos, they are not quite at the 1.85:1 ratio; they are more like 1.89:1 or so. What’s the reasoning behind this?

Manga UK’s releases do not include any video extras. Both the BD and DVD include a Gold Rare Obelisk card, while supplies last.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie Pack Blu-ray and DVD cover mock-ups from Manga UK

DSoD is also being offered in Manga UK’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie Pack (pictured above), a two-disc set that includes this movie and Bonds Beyond Time. The Movie Pack is available in both BD and DVD formats. The BBT discs are identical to the ones Manga UK sold in 2011, so there’s probably no reason to buy this pack if you already own BBT. These products do not include any cards.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions from Madman Entertainment

Madman’s region 4 DVD (pictured below left) contains only the English version of the movie. The audio is available in a 2.0 stereo and 5.1 surround sound mix. The company did not put out a Blu-ray counterpart. On the plus side, the picture on the DVD is properly letterboxed, and the DVD contains two theatrical trailers as extras.

Cover mock-ups of Madman's Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions DVD and the JB Hi-Fi exclusive version

Australian and New Zealand retailer JB Hi-Fi sells an exclusive version of DSoD on DVD (pictured above right), which includes a unique slipcase and a Gold Rare Obelisk card. (Special thanks to Armaan Swaich for the tip!) Regular versions of the DVD don’t include a slipcase or card. Aside from these two extras, JB Hi-Fi’s product is otherwise the same as the regular DVD.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions from Marvelous

Marvelous, a Tokyo-based developer and producer of games, software, and audio-visual content — and the producer of all Yu-Gi-Oh! home videos in Japan — released DSoD on region A Blu-ray and region 2 DVD.

Marvelous’ BD is considered a premium product and contains a 2.0 stereo and 5.1 surround sound mix, as well as a DTS Headphone:X mix. It also includes a commentary track featuring the voice actors for Yugi, Kaiba, Jonouchi, and Mokuba. The BD is available in a standard edition and a limited edition with additional goods.

Both the BD and DVD have optional Japanese subtitles and include three trailers as extras. The DVD lacks the DTS Headphone:X track and commentary track.

Marvelous’ BD is the only BD out of this bunch whose picture correctly has a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Its DVD, on the other hand, is a hot mess. Not only is the picture’s aspect ratio wrong (it’s something around 1.83:1), the letterboxing is completely uneven. The bottom matte is significantly thicker than the top one. Furthermore, the video suffers from the same sort of artifacting that has been present in all of the Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! DVDs ever since 5D’s.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Scale 23: ‘The Trick Revealed!’

Yuya's Duel Runner with a Booster Unit in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 23

Ren removes his mask and throws it to the ground, shattering it. Yuya gasps upon the sight of a familiar face and haircut. It’s Yugo?! No. Ren reveals himself to be a descendant of Yugo, the duelist whom he idolized when he was younger.

“I do not understand the mind of God,” tells Ren, “But I struck a deal with God and received recompense. In return, I must serve God. That is the fate God gave to me.”

With that, Ren continues his assault on Yuya and vows to complete his “mission.” He uses his spell cards to continually return monsters from his graveyard back to his hand and to strengthen his White Aura Biphamet. It attacks, whittling down Yuya’s life points. Yuya knows that to even stand a chance against Ren, he will need to solve the mystery of Biphamet’s two heads and its ability to seemingly resurrect itself without end. But Yuya can’t overtake Ren and his technologically superior Duel Runner…at least not without some help.

Yuya draws the card Booster Unit. He thinks back to the time when he was preparing for this duel with Yugo. Yuya chose the particle accelerator as the stage because it allows him to pull off a magic trick, he tells Yugo. He had tweaked the particle accelerator so that it shoots Solid Vision mass particles. He can then use his creation — the Booster Unit Solid Vision item — to catch the particles and accelerate.

Back at the duel, Yuzu watches on anxiously from the control room when Yuya suddenly radios in.

“Push the button!!” Yuya says. Yuzu slams a comically large button taped to the center of the control panel in front of her.

Behind Yuya, a Solid Vision beam fires and whizzes toward the duelists. Yuya activates his Booster, catching the beam, and rockets up and over Biphamet. For the first time, Yuya is ahead of Ren, blocking Ren from snagging the Action Cards ahead of him. No longer does Ren have the advantage.

Yuya fills in his open Pendulum zone with Performapal Pendulum Conductor, then Pendulum summons Clearwing Fast Dragon and Odd-Eyes Phantasma Dragon. Yuya uses Clearwing’s effect to drop Biphamet’s attack to zero and prepares to attack. But Ren is unconcerned, proclaiming that his spell makes him immune to damage as long as he has another White monster on the field. This is exactly the information Yuya was hoping for.

White Aura Biphamet’s two heads are actually two separate monsters. As long as one head lives, it can revive the other. Yuya activates Pendulum Conductor’s effect, allowing his monsters to attack both heads simultaneously. Ren is finished for sure this time!

Thoughts

So Ren is Yugo’s descendant after all. As expected. This only leads to more questions of who Yugo actually is, and what type of duelist he grows up to become.

And what is Ren’s mission? Why has he been selected by G.O.D. to be reborn again, only to owe G.O.D. a favor for his additional lives? Ren seems like an ordinary person who died before fulfilling his dreams, just like countless other people throughout history. What makes him special? The answer probably lies with Yugo.

Yuya and Ren’s duel plays out kind of anticlimactically. Yet again, we see a duel introduce elements that are impossible in the actual Yu-Gi-Oh! card game — not once, but twice. Ren’s two-monsters-in-one scenario doesn’t exist in the game, and neither does Yuya’s simultaneous attack strategy. The story doesn’t need these fantastical elements; the already very complex game can play out in other ways. Ren’s previous Reincarnation Synchro strategy with White Aura Whale seems more threatening than this one because that is at least plausible, and is rightfully overpowered to demonstrate Ren’s strength and importance.

But at least this duel introduces something very worthwhile: a new Kuriboh card, Kuriborder!

The 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG North American World Championship Qualifier is getting another voice actor guest?! That’s right, Yu-Gi-Oh! tournament veteran Darren Dunstan will be attending this year’s event! Darren is best known as Maximillion Pegasus in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters and Jean Michel Roget in Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V. He is also the voice director of every Yu-Gi-Oh! series since episode 60 of 5D’s.

Darren’s appearance could very well mean the return of the Ultimate Pegasus Challenge, a special tournament where Pegasus manipulates the game by announcing wacky rule changes while duels are taking place. This event has only ever been held three times — at the YCS Providence 2012, the NAWCQ 2013, and the NAWCQ 2015.

Now that there’s a third guest coming to the event, there simply must be a fourth. Let’s see an exciting two-versus-two tag team duel! C’mon, Konami, make it happen!

The 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! NAWCQ will take place in Chicago, Illinois, on July 8 and 9.
