    German MOTU DVD Covers

    Wanted to ask from German fans:

    Are these covers official & real DVD covers that came out?

    Judging by the logo and arts, they appear to be fan-made.

    I can see a signature on the later Volume-covers, but can't make out the name. Is the artist a member here at Org?

    As far as I know, the german company used Emiliano's art for producing the covers for their releases. They are not the same covers as the US ones rather a "remixed" version of them

    Those are fan-made covers.

    The only companies that released MotU DVDs in Germany were Nixbu and KSM.

    The Nixbu artworks were quite horrible, while KSM reused the US artworks.

    Examples:

    Oh man. Those Nixbu-covers are even more worse than these fan-mades.

    Yup, the Nixbu DVD covers all are pretty bad. Fits the overall quality of those DVDs.

    By the way, the fan covers you posted were done by German fan Alex "ZeichenTier". I don't think that he's registered here, but he's a user over at PlanetEternia:

    We actually even did a fan project together a couple of years ago where he delivered the art:

    Were they low-quality? (Like... cramming too many episodes per disc)

    It was more of the opposite. They spread the entire show over 10 or 12 (ain't sure right now) DVDs. But they only featured German dubs, the eps were still done in poor quality, the few "extras" were laughable, and the menu was really bad. And they still were rather expensive!
    I didn't buy them, just got the first one as a gift and watched some others at a friend's home. But if I bought them, I would've felt ripped off.
