Kenshin Replacement Disc details

Many corrections, but still some problems

According to Anime on DVD the new Kenshin Discs, which have arrived on store shelves, have been changed in a few interesting ways. These discs are to replace the defective copies of Rurouni Kenshin TV Vol. #1.

Unfortuanetely, while the discs can be differentiated from the orginals just by looking at them, you have to look at the discs themselves, the packaging is identical.

Excerpted from Anime on DVD:
The new version is produced on a DVD-9, or dual layered, disc. This means that the bottom side of it will be gold-reflective as opposed to the silver-reflective DVD-5 single layer disc.

The phase inversion of the audio tracks has been fixed, but the first episode is still reversed (as opposed to the original disc where all four episodes were reversed). The subtitles have been tweaked in terms of spelling mistakes and the main menu now has music. The layout of the disc is also similar to more recent ones from Media Blasters, which means the branched openings/endings are gone and one straight video track is laid out instead.

Also noted is that with it now being dual layered, video quality is much improved over the original release. The one seeming downside is that the image gallery is short many of the pictures that were on the original release.
