Wait, Ranma TV and the Movies are still in print. The second edition boxsets are still available on Rightstuf, Amazon, and so on. And the movie boxset is still listed on both sites as well.

Italicized releases represent possible OOP status. Those listed properties are pretty fluid (in/out of print; questionable stock status,...). As for Ranma TV (particularly the first set) had in-stock issues in the past (should be last year). It was to the point (if I remember correctly), listings were removed. The movie set was in a similar situation. I will keep an eye on it for a bit longer before removing both from the list.

It looks like another Manga Entertainment license may be going away. The DVD and Blu-ray releases are still readily available in secondary online retail outlets. With that said, it may be a good idea to pick either up before the price goes up (especially if it doesn't go back in-print in the near future).

Funi let us know that FN-04579 Aquarion Season 1 Complete Collection (S.A.V.E) is now out of print. Funi is out of stock and will not be making anymore, so it's now limited to stock on hand.

Oh well, moving on, Bandai sent us a note this week to let us know that the Kurokami DVD's and BD's are now out of print. The BD's are already out of stock at Bandai and they will not be making anymore of either, so this one too is now on 'stock on hand' status, though we will try to keep them in stock as long as possible through secondary sources.

Not pertinent to me, considering that I already have the 2008 Geneon box, but I will remark that this is a smart decision. Ergo Proxy, while not having the largest following, is highly rated, and will most certainly be picked up by collectors and others who were interested but missed the other two boxes.

I already own Ergo Proxy as well, but that is good news for anyone who didn't pick it up before it went OOP. It would be great if some more Funi rescues come back that I didn't scoop up at the time - like Fate/Stay Night.

Far be it from me to rub it in, but...

*rubs it in*

...I got that one, too. Wink

But yeah, I'd totally scoop up Nanoha, too. There's some other title I missed and I can't bloody think of it right now...

I did, but I mentioned that one a few posts above. There's another one and it's bugging me that I can't remember it...

...just checked out Funi's Geneon rescue list and F/SN was the only one that really leapt out at me after all. I wish I'd gotten Kamichu! while it was a Funi license because it would have been cheaper than the copy I bought recently. I'm interested in Story of Saiunkoku and Kyo kara Maoh! but I'm not super bummed I missed out.

blegh I've already traumatized myself enough with not buying the series when I had the perfect chances (while being aware that it was OOP too). ugh, as sad as I am at least there is still some hope... In Australia that is lol.
