Final Notes
  • Best English Dub: France (Sidonis Calysta) Blu-ray
  • Notes:  France (Sidonis Calysta) has only existing Blu-ray version which has a slightly sharper picture than DVD releases likely due to the higher bitrate. All other aspects of Blu-ray picture are identical to Columbia releases though. Columbia releases have no cuts and would be a sufficient alternative if unable to obtain the Blu-ray.
