This is a show I'd definitely buy the Blu-ray of, rather than the DVD =D

Hopefully this justifies some more Puella Magi action. The last episode just screamed "SEQUEL!"

Contact whomever you ordered it from... often they will offer a replacement service of their own. Either way it is the risk you run for ordering anything prerelease internationally.

How do you make a 'mistake in the dialogue', its not like they re-recorded the show for the DVD/BD release?

Ah man, Ide love to have this on BD. The anime people in japan need to start putting more english subs on their stuff. Either that or the AU/US anime people need to start emulating their releases Razz.

Remember that at the base level an episode of anime isn't some linear thing recorded on a tape, it's a whole bunch of digital files on a computer all programmed to compile together into a whole.

In this case, it's a conversation that essentially goes line 1, line 2, line 3, line 4, line 5 - except due to an error when they were putting the episode together, it plays back as 1, 2, 3, 2, 5.

Ah, right. i see. i would have expected them to thread all the individual recordings into a single master track, but i guess that makes sense.

This is unbelievable! After sending out defective Garden of Sinners box sets how could Aniplex manage to screw this up.

To be fair, the box isn't produced with the Blu-Ray author's computer, nor is it pressed at the Blu-Ray plant :S

To be straightforward though... I agree with you. I paid upwards of $400 for my Garden of Sinners box and I've dealt with a box that has nearly fallen apart since purchase (Yes, it has warped THAT FAR! Do not doubt it, or I will bring pictures!) and now I've imported another "Premium" limited edition Blu-Ray for multitudes what I'd pay for a basic, well-authored US Blu-Ray... and I'll have to RMA it to get a fixed copy.

I can only dream that in some sort of sliver-of-hope alternate universe, Aniplex will announce a plan to recall Madoka BDs to a central location in the US for all of the fans who imported. That way they won't have to pay international shipping for a defective product exchange.
