FullMetal Alchemist fifth DVD  
Is it just my DVD, or is the 5th DVD's layout messed up on the back..? It has all the scences that are supposed to be in the 6th DVD.. Sorry if this has already been posted.

Also, does anyone know who made my icon? I would like to give proper credit to the person who created it, but I can't seem to find out who made it..
Current Mood: confusedconfused
Current Music: La Totura- Shakira

I think I remember someone talking about that with some of the other DVD's. I'll search through the memories and see if it's in there (which I doubt).

nope, not in there. Gah, I haven't taken a good look at it in a while and I'm striking out on finding scans of the back. Perhaps someone else will have a more definitave answer. *going to stop talking now, because even I don't know what I'm saying...*

Yeah, I went through the memories, Ebay and Google to find out if all the DVD's were like that.. >< Ah, well Thankies, anyway! =D

Ya know, I had the same revelation about the back of my DVD as well. I was so ecstatic about Scar being on the cover though, that it took me forever to go, "Wait...that scene right there is in episode 23..and that on'e from 22...and so is that one...wait a minute, this only has 17-20, why are these pictures here?!" You are not alone with the messed up back to the 5th DVD!

Tell me about it! I was like EEE! I finally get to see Kimbly..and I never did ;_; Oh well.
Jessie :Dfr0steh on November 4th, 2005 06:09 pm (UTC)
Same here! I was all happy when I saw Scar, until I flipped to the back. I checked all the DVD's there and they were all the same.. Either FUNimation is lazy, or Best Buy is screwed up.

Even so,it makes you wonder which images they're going to use on the back of the next DVD? XD

XDD I was wondering that earlier! What about the last DVD to the FMA series? Will they put scenes from the movie? I wonder about the most pointless things XD;

*about that >>;
Abi "animation-obsessed" Burtonsaft on November 4th, 2005 06:23 pm (UTC)
XD, Maybe some random images they found on Google?

XD or maybe they'll have Never-before-seen pictures of FMA!
for example, maybe they'll have Roy cooking Black Hayate or Armor!Aru stripping =O

It'll be the same pictures, since those pictures are supposed to show up on DVD 6. I mean, what else can they do? It'd be too strange to put pictures of DVD 5 on DVD 6, so there's just gonna have to be an odd inconsistency in those DVDs. But the rest should go along as normal - I've seen a picture of the DVD 7 cover, and the back had proper screenshots from 25-28.

FUNi isn't lazy. There was obviously a screw-up with their packaging company, similar to the tin-sticker fiasco. I told Mike about it, and unfortunately he said it was too late to fix the problem. Oh well. *shrugs* It's not like the back of the DVD is that important.
lord_pachi: coud_poselord_pachi on November 4th, 2005 06:40 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes, there was a mix-up with the pictures. Here's my belief on what happened - FUNi must put all of the pictures that go on the back on single print sheets or something for the packagers to use, and then number them by the DVD number. Either someone accidently put "5" on the pictures for DVD 6, or the packaging company can't tell apart the number "5" from "6". Whatever the case, as I stated above, the fault is probably similar to the sticker-tin situation. In which FUNi is not at fault - rather, it's the packagers' fault, as I know that FUNi does not directly package their stuff. They design the packages, but it's sent to be put together by a different company.

I was a little thrown off by the whole thing, too. But of course, for this kind of thing, there's usually an explanation that will make sense. Unfortunately, I never found a direct reason, but it was obviously not an intentional design, as even Mike seemed surprised when I told him about it.

That explains alot ^^;;
Thanks alot for the info!

No problem. Just trying to make sure that blame isn't put in the wrong place, that's all. ^^

Just watch... the back of the 6th DVD has episodes from the 5th DVD... XD XD


((And lemmie know who made that icon in question, I really like it XD))

Umm..........actually, Viz has nothing to do with the DVD packaging. o_O' So, let us change that to: "HURR HURR *name of company that packages FUNi's DVDs* YOU SCREWED UP!" See how beneficial it is too proofread? =D

And as I said above, it should be the same pics again for the 6th DVD........since this time, it'd be right. Lance, FMA's brand manager, has probably long known about this error and will make sure that no mistakes like that occur again.

Uhm, about the icon, I made, er, half of it. o.o A while ago someone (can't remember who) posted a bunch of animated bases of that scene and I just added the text... uhm, yeah. *skitters off* XD
Jessie :D: Made by: Elystia-san! ^^fr0steh on November 5th, 2005 06:05 pm (UTC)
Oh, okies! I'll give you credit, also ^^
Thankies for letting me now! =D
