Sometimes I wonder why Funi bothered to Licence rescue a few of these titles.

I'm kinda relieved that I can save my money that were going to be spent on the titles released in December because there's going to be alot of old DVDs/Manga that may have their prices sharply decreased (Holiday Discounts) during the first 12 days of December at RightStuf.

I was aiming for Baka and Test Season 2, Shakugan no Shana S, and Shakugan no Shana Movie due out in December, but moved back to January.

Of course, I would want Tenchi Muyo! OVAs and their movies, but that didn't bother me much.

If anyone did rage about this, that'd just be pathetic. Most of these just got pushed back a month at the latest.

Most of the stuff I wanted or ordered didn't get pushed back that far so whatever, Im cool

This.

These delays aren't too bad or even that long and I'm even buying a number of these BD titles so it effects me and I'm cool with this. Baka and Test, Black Lagoon, Level E, Panty and Stocking, Serial Experiments Lain and Steins Gate (and Hellsing seems to be still on time).

Most of which are even still coming out late November or December so pleasantly still before the end of the year.

Also, as already mentioned it's not like there won't be Rightstuf's usual massive Christmas sale to spend some of that extra money on! I know my wallet's going to be dying/crying lol.

I can live with the delays, pushes the expenses out too, so that is good also.

Hmmm, I don't remember there being any September or October delays really, since stuff like Hellsing 1, Strike Witches 2, Fafner, C Control and Aria all seemed to come out on time.

Were there? Honestly, the releases between all of the companies are split like I have shows coming pretty often so I'm sure I may have overlooked a few coming a bit later than they should have so you may be right even if I'm not that effected.

At least A Certain Scientific Railgun season 1 hasn't been affected by the delay...



...because Funimation still hasn't announced a release date for Railgun in the first place, over two years after announcing it. :-/

I'm waiting too. Hopefully they'll announce it as soon as those Index discs come out. Railgun's the one I really want to own too even though I'll likely be getting both since it was good too and Mikoto's in it ofcourse. On a side note, stupid freaking Kadokawa, I want both, particularly Railgun, on BD not DVD dammit!

It's a little annoying, but a few more weeks for Black Lagoon and Lain isn't going to ruin my day.

Well, at least Is This a Zombie? hasn't been delayed again(yet). Since that's already been delayed 4 months.
