Media Blasters March Releases

Media Blaster's new distributor for Anime Works has confirmed three more new releases for us today - this time for March release. Here's what they say is coming:

Genshiken Complete Collection DVD Boxed Set (TV Season 1 & 2 + OVA)
Kanokon: The Girl Who Cried Fox Complete Collection DVD Boxed Set(Eps #1-12)
Loveless Vocal Collection DVD Boxed Set (Bilingual)

So it looks like we will finally be getting whole Kanokon series in one shot, and as promised, the set will be priced to not cause too much pain for the folks that previously bought the Vol #1 DVD. Our price for the whole season will be only $19.98. The Genshiken box is just a re-release of Season 1 & 2 and will not include any DX episodes - so please don't ask. Those will, hopefully, still be coming later. Loveless is also a re-release, but the new version will be bilingual and will now include an English Dub for the same price as the old sub only set.

I've also got word that they will be bringing back out the Ah My Buddha and Blade of the Immortal boxed sets soon. Buddha has been on backorder since last July, and the Blade set never did ship back in October when it was originally scheduled. We've gotten broken promises on these before, but now they are in Allegro's release book. Anyway, I'm working on pinning them down to some sort of definite ship dates for these. Wish me luck.

Again, I just want to reiterate that everything coming with Media Blasters right now has to be taken with a grain of salt until they prove to us that they are getting their operations back on track. Just sayin.
