I always assumed the Mega CD version of the intro was a digitized version of the drawn one. it would make sense that they animated it traditionally and 'down scaled' it to sprites or whatever they needed to do. Its not really an FMV but more like a collection of sprites played back, correct?

It looks to me like automatically converted animation sequences looked like crap in the hardware used during the early days of FMV, so they had to redraw the animations so they wouldn't look like a block/grainy mess. This was done even during the Saturn days.

The one we saw in the Windows 95 version would be the 'original' without digitization. Id guess a few frames were mis-colored during the digitization process.

The Windows 95 version was heavily compressed, and had a reduced frame rate too. The original is a regular cell-based animation at 24fps from back in the day, which was the standard for any anime on TV at the time.
