Funimation Discontinues BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad

Funimation sent over a notice today that they has discontinued all versions of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, including the most recent S.A.V.E. edition. They will no longer be shipping any of the previous DVD releases to retailers as of today so the title is now officially discontinued and out of print.

We have placed the title in 'out of print' status in our catalog, and once our existing stock is sold out we will remove it from the store site.

UPDATE: Funimation is still holding the Beck license and say they do plan to re-release the series at some point in the future, so (according to them) it's only going "out-of-print" for the time being. It was my understanding direct from the top at Funimation that a S.A.V.E. edition was going to be the final version and thus the end of the release cycle for any particular series. Apparently, that is no longer the case. So hey, maybe we'll get a BD version in the future? Hope springs eternal. :-)
