    I'm deaf so I cannot completely verify this.

    I checked both audios. Duration times stay same and next episode previews never showed up.

      Re:Zero's Western Blu-rays Show Color Banding Artifacts, Companies Respond

      Discs ship from Funimation, Anime Limited

      The Re:Zero Blu-ray Disc sets released in the United States from Funimation Entertainment and in the United Kingdom from Anime Limited show color banding artifacts visible in some frames. The frames where it is noticeable show bands of color instead of a smooth gradient.

      Media OCD CEO and ANN columnist Justin Sevakis explained, "This is a common problem that crops up whenever the video was stored in a format somewhere in the production process that squeezes the bandwidth of the color data of a video signal too much."

      Anime Limited President Andrew Partridge commented in May, following an early release at MCM Comic Con, that Anime Limited is speaking to the licensor and authoring company, as well as running its own checks. 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.

      Funimation told ANN that it is "continuing to gather information" after hearing from fans about the issue. The company confirmed that the Blu-ray Disc uses materials approved by the licensor.

      "I've had master files delivered to me from Japan like this," Sevakis told ANN. "Some Japanese production companies still deliver or store video in outdated file and tape formats that are not acceptable by today's standards."

      Sevakis added that video analysis can catch an issue like this and, if better masters are not available, the video could be filtered to remove "90-95% of the artifacts," so as to make them unnoticeable to most viewers.

      Re:Zero shipped on Blu-ray Disc in the U.S. on Tuesday and is slated for release in the U.K. on June 25.

        At least Funimation is looking into the problem. But nevertheless while it might not be possible to get it to the Japanese level, at the very least it needs to be better quality than the streams. From the look of things, it's very possible that the second half release gets delayed to address this mastering screw-up.

          Since these are already shipping and many people already have their copies, our best case scenario is that we end up with the Code Geass fiasco again... Hopefully they're figured some shit out at their fulfillment center, but that's if they even acknowledge it as worth fixing. I imagine it will take as much prodding as that did for them to give in.

                  Mamiko Noto is credited as Noto Mamiko while the other Japanese actors and (presumably) staff use first-last naming convention...

                    Pointing that out to the Japanese side (Kadokawa and White Fox) would probably be enough to get FUNimation in trouble and force them to fix the discs

                      Man, what a disaster this release has been. Funimation really needs to go back to the save point and start the BD authoring from zero as it has been one misstep after another. Hopefully, they can send out replacements and get it fixed because this is just unacceptable. At least the disc aspect can be replaced relatively easily.

                      On the bright side, I just received my copy from the Crunchyroll store, and it arrived without any problems aside from the late shipment and the inexcusably bad picture quality on the discs. I must say that I could certainly make due without the pillowcase as that is what makes the size of the box so huge. At least it has a slot for the second half, something that is not the case for My Hero Academia.

                                Hopefully that means they are fixing the video quality.
