Funimation Pushes Rosario Yet Again - Now to December

Funi just sent over a note letting us know that they have pushed Rosario - again - now to December. All things considered, I'm really not sure what the point of even giving it a date at all. Perhaps they should just list it as TBD until they workout whatever the issue is that's holding it up.

Rosario+Vampire Complete Collection DVD Boxed Set (Eps #1-13) - Sep 27 to Dec 20
Rosario+Vampire Capu2 (Season 2) Complete DVD Boxed Set (Eps #14-26)
 - Sep 27 to Dec 20

I was told a while back that the Rosario delays were unique and were being caused by a materials issue, which would makes sense if it was delayed a couple three month, but this is something else. I wonder if they are having an issue with a license approval or some other legal requirement? These delays feel contractual in nature...

Anyway, sorry folks, I'm just the messenger.

Damn, our theory that the release would coincide with Halloween is a bust.

I'm thinking the holdup is that they are trying to workout the HD rights to ultimately do the release as a BD/DVD combo pack. They would not have known that they would want to publish it that way when the did the original license arrangements last summer. That's my theory anyway.

Robert, I think your theory may be right about the release holdup. Anyway, I wouldn't mind having this as a BD/DVD combo pack, but I'm praying that the ACTUAL release doesn't get pushed back to next year.

Now comes the real question:

Which will come out first?

A) Rosario + Vampire BD/DVD combo pack

B) King of Fighters XIII for PS3/XB360

C) Charlie Sheen (out of the Beverly Hills Mental Institute, that is)

Charlie Sheen will need a few months of detox first. Just remember, it's all about 'winning'! :-)
