Bandai Announces July 2011 Releases / Date Pushes

Bandai has given us their July 2011 release schedule, and we now have it available on the store site for pre-order. Here's what's coming:

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie (A Wakening of the Trailblazer) DVD - Jul 6
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie (A Wakening of the Trailblazer) BLURAY - Jul 6

In addition to these new releases, Bandai has bumped almost their entire June slate into July, including K-On and Tales of the Abyss. Here's the date changes:

Gundam Unicorn , Part #1 DVD (Eps #1-4) - Jun 7 to Jun 23
Tales of the Abyss , Part #1 DVD (Eps #1-6) - Jun 7 to Jul 5
Tales of the Abyss , Part #1 Limited Edition DVD (Eps #1-6) - Jun 7 to Jul 5
K-On! Vol #2 DVD - Jun 14 to Jul 5
K-On! Vol #2 (BLURAY) - Jun 14 to Jul 5

Considering almost the entire June schedule went to July 5th, I give only about 50/50 odds the new Gundam 00 movie will street at that time too. Am I being too generous with those odds? :-)

My guess is that they're looking for a big push from Anime Expo to get some more cash on hand or something.

Just a guess...
