The Funimation DVD is the Celestial Pictures 1.78.1 widescreen transfer. The restoration ensures a clean, clear picture quality. The enhanced Mandarin Mono version nicely balances music, dialogue and effects, and the English subtitles are easily readable and 99.99% error-free. The English dubbed version features a slightly louder dialogue track that diminishes background sounds. The English translation is bare-bones but gets the point across. Subtitles flesh out information missing from the dubbed dialogue.
The preliminary Funimation promotional reel cannot be skipped but can be fast-forwarded. The chapter selection pictures are numerous and small, making selection somewhat difficult but the main menu is simple and easily navigable.
