See my first post in this thread (#59) for half an answer.
Got my copy last night. Could somebody point me to approximately where the new footage is. I saw the new opening footage to the S1 OVA but don't recall any of the other footage including the hot tub scene. Didn't help that Iept falling asleep in part because so much of the OVAs were recaps of the battle scenes. Not a mech fan and I found the character interactions and story to be more interesting than the battle scenes.
Also the video was noticebly degraded from the Geneon DVDs. I'm not a videophile and don't usually notice a lot of video issues but I don't recall the last time I've seen so many jaggies on my Oppo + 32" HDTV. So bad, I couldn't even make out Meia's headgear in several scenes. Looked like a really bad tattoo instead. So bad that I had to watch those scenes again in the Geneon DVDs just to make sure. Still some jaggies but not nearly as bad and frequent. And Meia's headgear looked like headgear and the 3DCG didn't hurt my eyes as much. Granted, had to upscale to get from letterbox to widescreen but the Oppo usually does a really good job of upscaling. And I did compare the FUNi DVD the Geneon DVD.
Also the DVD case a keepcase with three flippers and a total of 5 discs inside. Which might come in handy if I decide to double pack the FUNi DVDs in with the Geneon DVDs using dual M-Lock keepcases and putting the FUNi DVD cover on the inside of of the Geneon DVD covers. Since I already have the artbox + singles and all LE trading cards, I will be keeping the Geneon DVDs. Especially since the video quality seems to be significantly better.
