  • So after all that, Media Blasters just decided to pull the plug on the BD release. So much for all that, which I'm not surprised given the way they have been operating.

      • Unfortunately, we've been informed by the manufacturer that Yamibou has been indefinitely delayed. We'll put the item back up on our website once we receive a new solicitation.

        • It took a bit longer than I expected, but I got a cancellation email for my order yesterday, so that's the end of that. Even if it does go back up for order, I don't think I'm going to bother with it.

            Yeah, really. It took quite a while for me to get a cancellation too, but even if it comes back I probably won't order it until it actually gets released, if ever. Media Blasters used to be pretty decent, but it seems like now it's slowly falling a downward spiral. I think I'd be relieved when they finally close up shop, and that makes me sad.

              • Wow! it has a release date again finally. I'm not going to get my hopes up, but hopefully it comes out this time. Guess I'll get my pre-order in again soon.

                    I'll believe it when I see people reporting they received copies. >_>

                    • I ordered too. Hopefully it's not a BDR.

                        That's ANOTHER reason I'm waiting! I wouldn't put it past them to do BDR.

                        • They have said in the past that all of their Blu-ray releases will be pressed discs, so a BD-R shouldn't be one of the concerns here. The main thing with DVD releases is that they have their duplicator that they purchased themselves for in house use, and they probably want to get some use or return on investment from it.

                          As for me though, the sooner they can get this release out, the better they will be in my eyes. I swore off buying anything else from them until Yamibo comes out. I hope they will get Okusama ga Seitokaichou out some time soon though. Would be nice to not have to wait for 3 years for them to release it, but it's getting pretty close to that mark already.

                          • If there's anything to be concerned about, it's the possibility of hardsubs after what happened with Strawberry Panic's SD BD.
