It is still there: http://www.rightstuf.com/​1-​800-​338-​6827/​catalogmgr/​JpmYkOIfdshk2uff4e/​browse/​item/​94977/​4/​0/​0

They listed it as "We'll Get It For You!".

Different release. The one you linked (which has in-stock issues from virtually all online retailers) is Ah! My Buddha DVD Nirvana Collection (Hyb) (Classic Collection). It's the newer re-release with a lower MSRP.

Ah. I was not aware that they did two release versions of the Nirvana Collection.

How much you wanna bet that this is directly connected to all the Media Blasters cancellations:

Heh, heh. Take it this has to do with the nice number of release delays and cancellations Media Blasters pulled last year? Laughing

Also, due to license expirations, all release versions (including the S.A.V.E. Editions) of the following series have been discontinued as of March 5th:

009-1
Hell Girl (first season)
Moeyo Ken
Xenosaga


EDIT:
via Media Blasters Facebook page

- Is either Midori Days or Grenadier's licenses expired? Seems like places I normally order from have them listed as OOS and don't know when(or if) they'll get more stock in. Which usually means for them, that it's out of print.

- Yes they are and would only be back stock now.

EDIT 2:
via Media Blasters Facebook page
Quote:
- Does the company still have licenses to Samurai Deeper Kyo and éX-Driver?

- Those expired a while agobut I know SDK is still out there as we sold tons.

EDIT 3:
via Media Blasters Facebook page
Quote:
- Anyway, you've had Magic Knight Rayearth for a very long time and it seems some of the box sets are out of stock. Has that one lapsed as well?

- thanks for the support and we are still releasing MKR.

EDIT 4:
via Media Blasters Facebook page
Quote:
- One quick question: are Moribito and Twelve Kingdoms still good with you guys?

- 12k and Moribito are still good, we actually recently renewed 12k.

Unless I'm mistaken, it looks like Interstella 5555 might be OOP given that it no longer appears at TRSI.

Seems to still be in stock at amazon:
DVD
Blu-ray

Also it seems RACS still carries it in both DVD and BD:
DVD+BD

Blu-ray also seems to still be available from BestBuy. It maybe going OOP, but not quite there yet.

Oooh, that is a shame! But I recall some of the reviewers around here saying it's the worst Bluray upscale in existence (it was on a podcast and everything) so yeah, grab the DVD while you can.

The customer reviews on Amazon are pretty unanimous about that too.
