Anchor Bay’s Blu-ray, DVD Replacement Program for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions

If you purchased Anchor Bay Entertainment’s Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Blu-ray and DVD, you are probably already aware of two problems afflicting these products, neither of which appear in the video products released in other territories.

The first issue emerges when playing the movie in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. The subtitles that are displayed are not actually translations of the Japanese dialogue. Rather, these subtitles match up line-by-line with what is spoken in the English-dubbed dialogue, and are also used for the subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing that appear when playing the movie in English. In other words, they are so-called dubtitles. The English version of the movie contains original writing and is not a direct translation of the Japanese dialogue.

The second issue is that the movie is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio rather than its original 1.85:1 letterboxed aspect ratio. A 1.78:1 picture completely fills the screen of a standard widescreen display, but comes with a loss of some of the left and right sides of the picture.

I reached out to Anchor Bay for comment about these issues and the company has replied with details about how it is handling this movie going forward.

Regarding the subtitles, “Replacement discs are in the works to fix the ‘dubtitle’ issue,” explained an Anchor Bay rep. The company is currently “[w]orking with [4K Media] to confirm everything is accurate with the Japanese subtitles prior to manufacturing new discs.”

As for the aspect ratio, the cropping of the video was intentional and will not be changed, as “this is [an] original framed presentation without the 1.85 matte added in,” said Anchor Bay.

Anchor Bay was unable to comment on whether the replacement discs will eventually be available for sale in retail stores, and if they are, whether there will be a way to visually examine the packaging to determine if it contains an old disc or a replacement disc.

What Should You Do Now?

Anchor Bay Entertainment will be replacing its Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Blu-ray and DVD for anyone who is not satisfied with the products. To request a replacement, please send an email to:

lionsgateshop@orderassistance.com

(This is the correct email address to contact. Lionsgate is the parent company of Anchor Bay.)

You will be asked to provide your contact information, location and date of purchase, and photographs of your receipt, packaging, and discs.

“Discs will be shipped as soon as possible to the core fans who reach out to this customer service email,” stated Anchor Bay.

If you have not purchased Yu-Gi-Oh! DSoD and want to ensure that you receive a copy that has the corrected subtitles, the easiest thing to do is to purchase the copy currently available on store shelves, then email Anchor Bay to guarantee yourself a corrected version once it becomes available.

Note that Anchor Bay is not recalling any products — the BD and DVD with the defective subtitles will continue to be sold in stores. Since Anchor Bay is unable to confirm when or if the corrected BD and DVD will eventually be available in stores, and whether it will even be possible to distinguish between the old and corrected products, there is no point in waiting for the corrected products to become available before making a purchase. If you wait, you may still end up buying an old product and having to contact Anchor Bay for a replacement anyway. So you might as well buy now, email Anchor Bay, and be among the first to get a replacement.

Also note that Anchor Bay has not yet manufactured the replacement discs. Since the discs still need to be reauthored, reprinted, and shipped — not to mentioned checked for errors all along the way — the replacement process could take months, not days or weeks.

Anchor Bay’s replacement program is only intended for the United States. Even though its region A/1 products are playable on equipment used in other markets and is available for sale in other markets, Anchor Bay itself is only the distributor for the U.S. and is thus unable to provide support to anyone in other territories who purchased its products.
