Spiral

Just got 1 + box today......and I'll be damned if it isn't a bit messed up. I remember from the fansubs that the first part of the first episode was a kinda dream-like sequence with a flashback showing the last time Ayumu spoke to his brother, and it isn't on the DVD! Why are my professional materials missing footage?

DO you still have the fansubs? have you checked? There is a possibility that FUNimation are using a JP DVD release of the show, which occasionally is altered from ordinary TV broadcast.

You mean the scene where he's talking to his brother on the phone? If it's missing, complain to the company. Hmm, I thought funi was getting better with their releases... This is the kind of thing that gave them a bad reputation in the first place. But as had been mentioned, that scene could have been ommitted in the r2 dvd version, or it could have been an authoring mistake.

Actually, what gave them a bad rap in the first place was changing Dragonball Z/GT series in regards to music and dialouge.

Exactly. Ironically, I specifically liked that brief scene.

I had them on discs I may have thrown away when it was licensed, but I remember it well.

I am familiar with this phenomenon, but would it have less footage than the TV version? And maybe I'm wrong, but isn't this more common with really popular shows? Spiral wasn't that big, was it?

hmm.. I didn't even know the Spiral DVDs were released yet, I guess I'll have to get them sometime since I never finished before it was licensed.

I DO still have the fansubs, and I didn't make it up! Maybe I'll post some screencaps somewhere or something.


The question is still there: how the hell did this happen?

Meh, it doesn't seem to have that much to do with the show's popularity. Nowadays plenty of anime, both popular and otherwise, have major or minor clean-ups for DVD.

The only case of "missing" footage in a DVD release I can think of is the R1 release of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, which like the Japanese DVDs used the official opening CG animation from the very beginning. IIRC, the TV broadcast of SAC initially had a temporary, 2-D OP. The temporary openings weren't included as extras or anything.

Where is our Spiral??

Ok, I was looking through my old fansub cd's when I found the first 20 episodes of Spiral which I'd downloaded way back in 2002! After trying to seach for the dvds I discovered that Funimation had ONLY JUST started releasing the series! What's up with that?? I was hoping to just buy them all in one go but the powers that be certainly took their time to release this series!

I hope I'm not the only one who's peeved off by this...it was an amazing series!

It's been over three years since I watched the anime and I was thoroughly disappointed by how it ended, but now you tell me that the manga (which I haven't read) is almost finished too? Please, tell me how it ends!!!
