Funimation Recalls Birdy the Mighty: Decode Part 1

Funimation, due to the wrong content being on one of the disks, hit us with a letter this afternoon announcing that they are recalling the new Birdy the Mighty: Decode Part 1 DVD Box (Eps #1-13) (Part # FN-06720) - you know, the one that just arrived a couple days ago. Ugggg.

Funi will be remaking a batch of new Birdy boxes, and they will ship them to us together with the 2nd half boxed set which is due to street on November 30th.

We have suspended all in process shipments of Birdy (they will automatically become pre-orders for the fixed box), and will be pulling our remaining inventory for return to Funi tomorrow. For you the folks that already have it, just e-mail us to request a replacement ticket. We will setup an automatic shipment to you for a fixed box once they arrive next month.

Ah well, I was waiting to see if they announce a BluRay set anyway. I don't want to get stuck with another DVD set like I did with The Slayers seasons 4 and 5 by diving in too early. Funi has kind of forced me to hold off on most of their DVD sets now, because they love to announce the BluRays shortly after the DVD release.

We had already shipped all the pre-orders for Birdy the day before the recall, so we'll still have a lot of boxes to exchange for our customers - at our expense (grrr) - when the new boxes arrive in November. At least they didn't let us ship them for a week before letting us know like they did with BBB last spring.

I wonder what the recall issue is?

Wrong content on one of the disks.

Apparently the entire 2nd disc of the release was DRAGONBALL stuff...

This is *NOT* what you want if you are trying to present yourself as a salable and survivable company going forward.
