If you look at the Media Blasters / Anime Works DVD box art and labelling compared to the features on each DVD, you will notice that the second and third discs have the wrong featured character! The second DVD, Sunrise, has Fuu on the box cover and DVD label but the art and features cover Umi (including an interview with Wendee Lee). The third DVD, Noon, has Umi on the box cover and DVD label but the art and features covers Fuu!
