posted on 1999-07-20 00:00 EDT
Pioneer has announced their second recall in less than a week, this time the entire first run of the dubbed version of Serial Experiments Lain: Navi. These tapes were accidentally duplicated with the Japanese audio track, and since there are no subtitles, the tape is the equivilent of the Japanese issue. The subtitled and DVD releases are not affected.
Last week, the subtitled version of Fushigi Yuugi volume 7 was recalled due to a similar duplication error: the entire run was duplicated with volume one instead. Again, the dubbed release is not affected.
Those who bought these tapes are asked to return them immediately to the place where they bought them for a refund. Replacement tapes will be made available soon, and can be told apart from the defective copies by a small white dot that will appear above the Pioneer logo on the back of the box.
