News The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya Blu-Ray Delayed to February
DVD on November 7, but Blu-ray on February 20.
The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya will be released on DVD on 7th November. However, our sincerest apologies as the Blu-ray will now be released on the 20th February 2012 due to major problems with the production.
Jerome Mazandarani of Manga Entertainment added a longer explanation on the same page:
We received the BD master some weeks ago and had check discs for QC [Quality Control] received early last week. We discovered that the disc does not play on PS3, which as you can imagine is a major problem! So, we now have to re-author the BD from scratch. (...) the only way we can fix this problem is by authoring a new disc ourselves in London. It usually takes 15 weeks from receiving an QC'ing a new HD master to authoring the Blu-ray and getting finished goods onto shelves.
