I am glad I got Wolf's Rain in the last Bandai sale seeing how quick it went to More Arriving Soon. So far the only title I am looking to get is Ghost Slayers Ayashi. I should be getting that when I get paid tomorrow.

Damn good thing I got Crest/Banner of the Stars when I did. Razz

I've pretty much got everything else from Bandai that I'm going to want, so far as I can tell. Kind of a load off my mind, really.

Maybe someone will recuse Ronin Warriors...that has been OOP for years. I do have a nice bootleg that cost me $30, but a legal copy would be nice, without it costing $400. Dragon Drive would also be nice, can't seem to find that either.

It's going to get to the point where they aren't worth it. Hopefully most of these shows are available to stream for the ones that want to do it the legal way. Don't fall for the price gouging. The industry won't benefit from people gouging defunct titles. Stream and use the money on your in print favorites. Getting ripped off on anime DVDs is never a fun thing :<

It's already not worth it for some titles. I could have gotten the s-CRY-ed collection for $20 two months ago, the cheapest one on ebay right now is $60. And I was following an auction of the Gurren Lagann collection and it went up $20 overnight (currently going for $90 by the same seller).

So, I was browsing through Rightstuf's Bandai selection to see what all I'm missing, and it turns out it's quite a bit. Like probably 30 different individual DVD sets. At $37 a pop for most of them, there's no way I'll be able to get them all before they go OOP; assuming everything is completely sold out by the end of March, I'll only have gotten at most half of those. I'll probably try to get the ones I really want and hope the rest get license rescued.

Speaking of which, do you guys think that some titles stand a pretty good chance of being picked up by someone else? Gundam might be a long shot because it's pretty much synonymous with Bandai and I don't see them fishing it out to Funimation, Viz or Sentai. But Cowboy Bebop is too much of a classic to go unrescued. Eureka 7 AO was licensed by Funimation, so they might get the first series somewhere down the line. They also have .hack//Quantum, so maybe they might pick up the rest of the .hack franchise. Sentai might pick up season 1 of K-On since they have season 2. But a lot of others may never see the light of day again, and that bums me out because I may not get a chance to buy them before they're gone for good. :(

P.S.: What does "More Arriving Soon" mean in this case? Because this is hardly a usual case since there's just a few months left before everything is officially OOP. I was about to placed an order for Gundam 0083 and Gundam 08th MS Team at Right Stuf, but they have those descriptors. Will they actually get those in soon or what?

The UK release of hack//quantum is in print and quite cheap, so you could import that if you can't get the Bandai one and you have a multi region player...

I've got a couple of titles on order from TRSI in that same exact category (and actually expect to purchase a few more soon enough). There's really no way to tell for sure, of course, but I think it's fairly likely that Bandai will be able to send in at least a couple of additional shipments with their major titles before they finally close up shop, so placing an order now and waiting until those last copies come in is far from an unreasonable choice, especially if the alternative is paying ridiculous prices from individual sellers when many of the products aren't formally out of print yet.

Quantum was a Funimation license here, so it's safe. SIGN, LotT, and Roots are the .hack titles that you should worry about if you want them.

It means "Yes, but it will take a while."
