Today I got disc 4 of Last Exile from Netflix. Except… it wasn’t disc 4. The sleeve said disc 4, and the physical DVD itself said disc 4, but when we put it into the DVD player it was clearly disc 3. This caused incredible confusion. It really took me a while to realize what the problem was. You just expect that the artwork on a disc is going to match the data on it. I’ve never seen anything like this before. Who’s fault is this? I don’t think I can blame Netflix. Maybe Geneon?
