Freddy Sheinfeld giving a walkthrough of the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Main Title Music

What goes into composing and orchestrating Yu-Gi-Oh! music for the big screen? In his latest video, Yu-Gi-Oh! composer Freddy Sheinfeld takes an in-depth look at the main title music of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, breaking down its different parts and expounding on his writing process. Composers, arrangers, and Yu-Gi-Oh! music enthusiasts — this video is for you! And even if you don’t know anything about music composition, you can still sit back and enjoy the intricacies of a great score.

Sheinfeld begins by outlining his goals of easing the audience into the movie with an introduction that is slow-paced but that also incorporates the small, fast, visual elements that are happening on screen. He then walks through the instruments — the brasses, woodwinds, strings, and choirs — and how each of them contributes to the texture, color, and feel of the visuals. All throughout, he emphasizes how he carefully uses them to match the pacing of the visuals and build expectation, from the opening shots in space, building up to the huge moment when Kaiba’s space station appears, to when the title appears.

Sheinfeld concludes by saying that he next wants to make a video breaking down one of the action cues, which is “super, super complicated.” If you like what you see and want to learn more, let him know!

*Polite applause*

Anchor Bay has begun mailing out Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions replacement discs. If you emailed Anchor Bay requesting a replacement, you will soon receive it in the mail, if you haven’t already. As promised, the new Blu-ray and DVD have fixed the dubtitles found on the old discs when playing the movie in Japanese, replacing them with accurate subtitles just like those on Manga Entertainment UK’s releases. The replacement discs have an identical label to the old discs.

As a reminder, Anchor Bay is not recalling the old discs. It is unlikely that those original printings have sold out, and there is no word on when these replacement discs will hit store shelves or if it will even be possible to differentiate between a package containing an old and a new disc. So, if you want to guarantee yourself a copy of the movie without dubtitles, you must buy a copy of the movie now and email Anchor Bay for a replacement. It’s not too late to do so.

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

July 11, 2017 at 9:00 pm | Posted in English dubbed, Japanese, Konami, The Dark Side of Dimensions, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 14 Comments

Photo of Anchor Bay Entertainment's Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions DVD and Blu-ray discs

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.

So ultimately, which release looks the best? As usual, I’ll let the screenshots do the talking.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Spanish Dub is Based on a Fansub

April 24, 2017 at 8:00 am | Posted in Spanish, The Dark Side of Dimensions, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 10 Comments

Aigami furrowing his brow angrily in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions

The Spanish dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, which premiered in Latin American theaters this past weekend, has already come under fire from some fans. In developing the script for the Spanish-language dub, producers at the Optimedia Bond dubbing and post-production studio in Mexico purportedly utilized an illegal Spanish fansub of the English dub of the movie rather than have the English script professionally translated. This revelation came to light in a Facebook post from the fansubbers themselves, who proudly confirmed their involvement with the movie. The fansubbers also noted that they were not paid for their work. (The announcement has since been removed.)

This discovery further fans the flames among Spanish followers of Yu-Gi-Oh!, many of whom were already agitated after learning that Optimedia Bond’s dub of the movie would not include the original Spanish Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors. Optimedia Bond’s actions set a bad precedent in the Latin American market for what is supposed to be a professional production, hurting the producers and translators who do business the right way while impairing the licensing of future products in the region.
