In retrospect, DVD menus were a terrible idea.
Why yes, I do love waiting five minutes for this CG animation to play out just so I can select a scene or episode. /s
@Jo at some point dvd menus will be studied as a short-lived interactive art form
@bnys Probably, but from a practical standpoint, they're a pointless intrusion. >.<
@Jo My favorite DVD menu opens up with a minute long dialogue about what a DVD menu is, and how to operate one
@douglasfur I'm not sure if you've seen my toots about the awful DVD menus for the UK release of Casshern (The live-action version).
@Jo Oh, I have not; I will have a look!
@douglasfur It was almost a week ago, so I dug it up myself :)
@Jo Oh my god how long of a window do you have to push the right button
About ten to fifteen seconds on Disc 1, five seconds on disc 2
(per menu item, that is)
@Jo hope you didn't want to do any scene selecting D:
Yeah, oddly the scene selection menu was just a perfectly normal one.
Still had to wait an age just to get to it tho.
