  • [DVD/BD] Media Blasters licenses status update

    Widgets Magazine
    Note: this post is now only an archived post & information may be outdated!


    The main purpose of this thread is to see what Media Blasters titles could (since it's not always 100% known) be OOP. Keep in mind sometimes OOP doesn't equate to license expiring. With Media Blasters their stock replenishment turnaround time is all over the place (more toward months).

    The list below is the latest updated based on stock at Amazon.com and RightStuf.com (I also included past OOP titles for completeness sake). While it's not going to 100% accurate, it does give a good enough of assessment of the current title stock status. And also the status listed below can change at any time.

    Take a look at the list. There more and more catalog titles heading toward OOP status (not just the older movies/OVAs). If I missed something and/or have something wrong, feel free to mention it in this thread.

    Note: bold titles indicate properties confirmed to be no longer licensed by Media Blasters!

      That Figure 17 should be OOP saddens me. Anyone with a passing interest in it should pick it up if they still can; it's a great little series.

      Then again, it sits next to Utena as my all-time favorite series, so I am a bit biased.

          The TRSI bundle would be good starting place: Figure 17 DVD Bargain Bundle (Hyb) - Your Price: $29.99 (You Save 84%).

            What are you talking about? I don't even know how you can relate "::: reserved :::" to Super Robot Wars. In any case, it's just a reserved post. I have done that for other threads that I may expand on in the future. I have not listed any series that haven't been solicited/released in the first post (that's the post you should be looking at, not the second).

              My apologies, I was confused. I thought the Reserved post meant that MB announced more titles or something and you reserved that post to reveal them or something like that. But upon further examination of the first post, that is an alarmingly small list of recently in print titles. I still have my fingers crossed for Squid Girl (and Jubei Chan) Season 2, but this is not encouraging. Also, Figure 17 sounds interesting, I may have to pick it up sometime soon.

                Still desperately waiting on Squid Girl Season 2. If they don't finish the series, I wonder if there's a chance Sentai could finish that up.

                  That's a great price. The gf would kill me if I took up more shelf space.

                      Pretty sure MB's Facebook indicated the company would not be releasing that title.

                        They haven't said yes or no. All that's publicly known thus far is found in this thread.

                          Is Genshiken (Seasons 1 & 2 + OVAs) the next one to go OOP?

                          The 2011 Seasons 1 & 2 + OVAs Collection [STACKpak] has a very low counter @ TRSI now. It's still on sale at Amazon.com for $29.93.

                            Is this the only release that contains everything Genshiken-related? Guess I'll need to decide on this series soon, as it looks like piecing together the other releases will be more expensive.

                              That's correct. This will be the cheapest route. Otherwise you have to buy two releases (Litebox sets linked here): Season 1 + OVAs and Season 2.
