I don't recall ever hearing about HONNEAMISE. Do they officially own the rights to release Unicorn cause they still list Bandai as the official licensee?


Honneamise is label under Bandai Visual. I don't own any of the domestic discs but I believe all of the production takes place in Japan.

I've thought about buying a second set but I'm so tight on funds right now. I'll barely be able to afford my pre-orders as is. I hope everyone that wants one gets one before they are gone.


Hopefully, Right Stuf includes that label during their next Bandai sale. I've watched the first two OVA's, so I'll be looking to pick these up before they go out of print. Still, I wonder if another anime company will pick up the rights to distribute these in the future..sort of like Hellsing Ultimate.

Gundam UC vol 5 now has the counter removed, but its status has changed to "We'll get it for you." All other volumes still have the counter.

They're out of the distribution game altogether - they're just a middleman for R1 licensing now.

Well, the forth Vol. of Gundam Unicorn is officially sold out at Right Stuf. Luckily, I placed an order earlier this week since I knew they would sell like hot cakes when the counter hit the teens. Laughing

Gundam, Mobile Suit UC (Unicorn) Blu-ray 4 (Hyb)


Edit: It's back in stock. 11 copies left.

How are they going to handle UC 6 and 7? Will we have to import from Japan like Code Geass Akito?

@RoverTX

Vol 6 is being released the same way. It's coming out on March 22nd and will be available on rightstuf (and amazon maybe?):

After I posted that I went back and checked my rightstuf account and realized I had preordered it... stupid me. I hope they are still planning on vol 7 though. That would make me cry for years if they didn't put it out stateside, or at least a JP version with 英語(english) subs...

I still don't get why they don't do something similar with Code Geass Akito as they did with UC, just without the dub. They could even ship the Japanese packaging and just have rightstuf be the middle man. All profit no risk for them... instead I find myself navigating amazon.jp...
