Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans - Funimation BD vs Bandai Flagship Edition BD

So uhm.. Sunrise supplied the English dub video master to Funimation (same as the GundamInfo Youtube stream), which like the Japanese broadcast master has shots that were corrected in the JP BD master.

Changes between broadcast and BD seem to be minor, but I've only quickly checked episode #2. Don't know if there are any major changes in this or other episodes.

Some of you may have watched the original Japanese version during its broadcast and noticed that in OP #1 the equipment and armor of Gundam Barbatos changes as the series progresses. Unfortunately this progression is missing in the English dub video master. The English dub video master uses the episode #3 variant in all episodes with OP #1.

As this uses the English dub video master from Sunrise, no one from Funimation is credited in the end credits. Japanese voice actors are credited first, English dub voice actors last.
