I always love coming back from a 3 day weekend to find a pile of product updates stacked up in my inbox, but trust me, we ALWAYS pay for it when we take 3 days off.
Let me see if I can get all these sorted out for ya here.
First, Media Blasters has sent over another round of date bumps and additions to there Anime and live action lines. Here's the date bumps that directly effect us:
Gao-Gai-Gar Complete Collection DVD Boxed Set (Eps #1-49) - Oct 9 to Nov 27
Fushigi Yugi Season 2 Collection DVD - Oct 23 to Feb 12
Ai no Kusabi (OVA) DVD - Dec 4 to Mar 12
In addition to these, they have also added:
Jubei-chan: The Ninja Girl Complete Collection DVD - Jan 8
Shamanic Princess DVD - Jan 22
Fushigi Yugi, the Mysterious Play OVA DVD Collectors Boxed Set - Feb 26
Obviously, all of the new dates are about as good as the old ones. I do have some good news though. The date on the Kite BLURAY (Remastered) remains unchanged at Feb 26, and MB is reporting that the three remaining Oct and Nov releases that we haven't gotten yet are in replication and should be shipping shortly. Those include the Ah My Buddha Collection for Oct 23, the Queen's Blade & Queens Blade 2 Complete Set for Nov 13, and the rescheduled Gao-Gai-Gar Collection. Also, it looks like the Kitty (adult) title STEP MILF will also be shipping to us soon after several delays - we'll have that one posted to the store once it arrives.
The folks over at NIS have sent us a quick note to let us know that the recently released Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up Complete Collection DVD/BD Combo Set (Premium Edition) is now sold out at wholesale and that no more will be made, so whatever stock we have left on the set is it. More to the point, however, is that they also told us that they are NOT planning to release a standard edition of this title like they have with others in the past, so if you want Enma in your collection it looks like the Premium edition will be your only chance. Get em while you can.
And finally, the folks at Section 23 sent us note to let us know that the DVD version of the Majikoi ~ Oh! Samurai Girl Complete Collection is running behind due to a replication error that was found on the first pressing. They are having the entire batch repressed, and are hopeful the corrected DVD's will still ship to us to still meet the Oct 23rd street date. As many of you already know, the BD version has already arrived (they come from a different factory) and we have started shipping those, so this delay only effects folks that want the DVD. If you have pre-ordered the DVD version and want to make a change, just let us know.
