How were dybex' most recent releases like again?
Delayed, multiple times :D

Iirc they had picture quality issues with Hellsing Ultimate, missing extras with Escaflowne and missing dubs with most of their newer titles (but guess you won't care about that). But their packaging is still nice.

Hellsing PQ is fine.
If you're referring to vick review, he mostly points out the fact that some of the old episodes looks meh (since they're upscales). His opinion is otherwise quite harsh because he was pissed of the multiple delays. There's no real apparent flaws or criticism beside.
I've checked most of the releases authored by Jordi Farro (new authorer for Dybex) and they are much better than what they were doing previously. Looking at their last sets, Lain and Blame are very good for example.
I don't know how FMA2003 will do (I don't like FMA anyway so won't buy) but I'm fairly sure the person in charge of that was the old staff, not him.

Escaflowne release is a mess tho. They put Selecta Vision in charge of doing everything (boxset+authoring) and that didn't turn out well. But that was the only time they did such thing. They're unlikely to do it again I suppose.

^ The Film is great and a must for anyone who has made their way through the TV series. So glad that Sentai are releasing the film, had long given up hope that they would.
