Why say stuff like this?
People are not going to buy Part 1 if Manga clearly are unsure if they will even release Part 2.
I know they are desperate to support the Blu-ray format, but if you release something, stay committed to it or risk damaging the reputation of your company.
After the whole FMA ordeal I'm not buying any of Manga's Blu-ray releaes for series until they are fully released.

Unfortunately that is a self fulfilling prophecy - if people hold off buying the first BD volume until the second is release, the second volume never will be released...
Shelf aesthetics and other OCD issues aside, isn't having part of the series in HD better than none of it?

I understand where you're coming from, but Manga is basically saying
'If you want more of this, buy it now. Ps. We might not sell enough though so Part 2 wouldn't get released.'
Fans want to be filled with confidence in a release, not doubt.
Also, I'd rather just have a complete collection, be it SD or HD, rather than half a show on one format.

Want Xam'd on blu ray but like many others i refuse to buy it unless they release the second blu ray set, very poor show from manga, if they don't have the intention of finishing a series in a paticular format don't bother releasing it in the first place.

Got stung buying the full metal alcamist blu ray so will never again buy a blu ray series until its complete.
