  • While titles are bound to eventually go OOP, it just feels too soon for some of these titles. Anyway, hopefully some of these get re-released, especially the ones released as the typical half-cour sets.

    • Huh... I've wanted to pick up Fate/Stay/Night Unlimited Blade Works but never felt it was worth the $350 they were asking for. Though I was planning to pick these sets up this year I guess those plans are dashed unless we get a complete boxset. However, unlikely that is with Aniplex.

      • Fate/Zero got a complete box set release in Japan, which presumably at some point will be on its way here since AoA typically waits for that to happen first. So, I would say it's likely that UBW will get one as well in Japan, probably sooner rather than later, particularly given that Type-Moon is celebrating the Fate franchise's 15th anniversary right now, and Fate/Grand Order's incredible popularity (and perhaps more important, profitability) continues to increase.

        It's also worth noting that the Japanese complete box set for Fate/Zero is cheaper than AoA's two sets for that series were, and contains subtitles and the dub, so any eventual UBW set is very likely to follow suit.

          I actually reslly enjoyed it, especially into the second half. It's pretty devisize, though.

          Well, put my order in. I was hoping it would go on Rightstuf's holiday sale last year, but it never did. Time to pull the trigger...

              According to "someone in the know", Golden Time, Snafu, and The Big-O are possibly getting re-released.

              • I see Mashiroiro Symphony ~ The Color of Lovers. It's gone from Rightstuf too. I haven't buy it because it was DVD-only. I was waiting and hope for Blu-ray.

                I hope Sentai Filmworks release the show on Blu-ray.

                • Golden Time and Snafu are two of the shows most requested for dubs that were previously released sub-only, so there's a great possibility for those shows getting a dub. They lacked marketability, which was primary factor in determining its dub prospects under the old criteria, but under the new criteria, which is based around reception primarily, they are prime candidates for a re-release with a new dub. Anyway, looking over the list I think I have everything I want from it.

                    • Sentai had wanted to do a collector?s set for Big O before, so I could see them doing that now. If they were going to dub additional older shows in their catalog, Snafu and Golden Time would likely be near the top of the list.

                      • I was just hoping Big O going out print wasn't a sign that Sentai had lost their other Sunrise releases that they still haven't released yet.

                          We wanted to let everyone know that some titles may be currently out of stock at various retailers for the time being. Our distributor is doing a warehouse move that will take a couple of months. Everything should return to normal in April or May.

                          • Whoa, when did God Eater go OOP?? Just saw today that vol 2 is listed as such on TSRI, but I never saw any previous notification in the recent Aniplex OOP announcements (or Rightstuf sales) that it was even listed! I would've bought it, had I of known... Only vol 1 is available but now I'm reluctant to pick up if I don't even have the chance at getting vol 2 anymore...

                            EDIT: Double checked on the Aniplex OOP list on Rightstuf (https://www.rightstufanime.com/categ...t%20of%20print) and yeah, vol 1 isn't listed, so did only vol 2 sell out with sudden announcement of it not being restocked?

                              Went OOP when I bought the last copy from rightstuf yesterday. I always assume Aniplex titles are on the verge of being OOP so I try not to wait.

                                I mean, yeah, I do too, but with budgets sometimes I need to wait until later, because normally we get notification on which titles are going away, before they do. We knew on the last announcement a bunch of titles that were, but this was one that was never communicated... A simple "hey a few copies left in the warehouse, and then that's it!"

                                I'm hoping for a possible restock now, because this stinks :/

                                EDIT: After chatting with a rep, it sounds like some of the God Eater vol 2s may be cancelled on some current open orders, as this seemed to be a title that Aniplex did not communicate with as being OOP (and I would assume vol 1 is also, as well). The previous Rightstuf listing in the link I posted above, were for titles they were already notified by Aniplex were going to be OOP.
