I'm kinda new to this, but I'm wondering if Viz Media got the Bluray footage (good animation) or the TV footage (sloppy animation).
You're thinking of the online version, the Japanese TV version used the Blu-ray masters but added the 10-second sponsor cards to them
. This is the version that Viz has since they came with clean versions of those sponsor cards.
Also Viz has the final version of Act 14 which is good because Europe has a different master for that episode which showed a second unfinished version of the Crystal Star Brooch.
Japan (online version)
France (also used in Portugal as well)
Japan (Blu-ray/TV version)
US (also used in Australia as well)
