Seb has been an anime fan since the late 90s and is particularly fond of anything post-apocalyptic, amusing, catgirly, ecchi or containing exquisite aerial battles. Living in Leeds with his cats and living up the bachelor life, Seb enjoys whiling the nights away deep in a book, game or a damn good series.
According to a quote obtained by ANN from Anime Ltd owner Andrew Partridge:
He noted that, while the problem is "disappointing," it does not fit "the common vernacular definition of defective" in order for Anime Limited to replace the discs.
Thanks to UKA reader Marco Morelissen for bringing this to our attention. According to some users and Anime News Network in particular, issues are being reported with the Funimation discs used for Anime Ltd's release of Re:Zero.
Youtube user Holy994 has uploaded an example video showing the issues.
There is also a conversation about the issue on Reddit if you want to jump in.
This is not the first time their have been issues with releases - Gurren Lagann Ultimate Edition had issues with both the packaging and disc content, Your Name had issues with both video and audio, as did Durarara!! both of which had disc replacement schemes offered.
Time will tell if Re:Zero will also have to be re-issued.
