The Q & A Thread (for questions that do not need a thread)

Regarding Soul Eater NOT, Just Passing Through's review on myReviewer stated that there's an audio dropout with the Japanese audio 1:16:51 into disc 1 of the BD/DVD, cutting off at the start of a sentence, which I'm guessing is sometime near the beginning of episode 4, but as no-one else mentioned this in their own reviews of the DVD or BD, can anyone who have already seen the broadcast version confirm this with their sets (if they have one)?

I haven't seen a broadcast version or whatever, but I checked my copy of Manga's DVD, and the audio dropout is indeed there. It happens immediately after the title card.

I can honestly say I didn't even notice it the one time I watched it before, though.

EDIT: I think the affected line begins with "semete" in Japanese, so only the first syllable, "se", is missing.

Thanks for telling me. I've managed to find a clip of that scene in question (without the dropout), and it did start with "semete".

Did anybody get any of those Funimation Essentials and new classics already? How does the sleeve look inside? Same as outside just without the stripes? Has it some diffrent artwork like half sets usually have inside? Not consistently the same, so depends on the show just like the SAVEs were? Or just white like Sentai's standard releases?

I have the Rosario+Vampire Complete Series Essentials set and that one has a reversible cover so minus the stripes (blue Blu-ray + Digital and great Essentials). Do love these as most of them are under the 22€ customs limit :)

Maybe I need to revive my Google spreadsheet and make new sheets for Classics and Essentials releases.

Oh, such a sheet would be really nice.
I also found this:
Which has diffrent artwork, but still with spine writing inside.
So that probably means it's kind arbitrary like the SAVEs were.

Have been thinking about replacing my old Steins;Gate classics box with the new classics, as it's less thick and spacey and both of them would perfectly fit into the LE box from the half parts. But the old classics box has a nice inside artwork I'd like to keep. (Also the cover illustration is a bit more complete than the new classic one.)
Also some titles' essentials appear to have different cover illustrations (like three leaves), so combining the combo's slip with the ssentials would give me the most complete artwork.
(I guess I like frankensteining too much...)
 
[Not Anime but...]

I'm just wondering if the volumes of Manga I have are complete for Sailor Moon

I've got the two boxset's released by Kodansha a few years ago, Sailor Moon boxset 1-6 and boxset 7-12 (Final volume being this: Sailor Moon Vol. 12 by Naoko Takeuchi (Paperback))

I ask as Wiki lists the manga as 18 volumes. Even chucking in the two volumes of Sailor V, thats still only 16 volumes with an english release (From what I can see)

This excludes the current reprint Eternal Edition ofc

I am in need of some more eyes!

So I quite recently watched Steins;Gate, Steins;Gate 0 and the S;G Movie. So S;G 0 kind of looks definitely different and I can see what. The movie is considerably closer to the original series in terms of look & feel, although the directing of it is kind of pretty flat (if it isn't outright copying it.)
Just... Okabe looks kind of really different? While not really? I mean it's still clearly him and his design has fundamentally not changed at all in the movie unlike to S;G 0. But something about his face is just... diffrent?

So in the series he looks like this:

In the movie it's like this:

The eyebrows? Is it the eyebrows? I don't know they kind of feel like they're morphing into Mayuri's thick brows, but then that impression doesn't seem really conclusive.
(The S;G 0 eyebrows kinda seem closer to the S;G ones than the movie. Though they seems to be rooted into the same position for really most of the time.)

I think this is driving me crazy now, because I can't pinpoint the reason of this dissonance I feel. .___.
