So... today was supposed to be the relase day of the Super-Robot Wars (Divine Wars & OG) Anime Series--I'm hoping the Inspector will be next...Anyway, these were first released on DVD subbed by one of Bandai USA's sub-labels Honneamise
Back in 2007. of course the prices were outrageous so I passed (actually I bought a dirt-cheap version from Singapore but anyway...) . But todays release was reasonably proced so I pre-ordered from Amazon & all was well...or so I thought.
I got an e-mail from Amazon stating the titles were on backorder "3-6 weeks"...and thought this all sounds eerily familiar. Of course I should have checked who picked up the liscense. Yes of course, it had to be Anime Works aka "Media Blasters"
. I had hoped after the Megalon debacle (and half a dozen other titles going back to 2007) never to deal with them again. I didn't even know they were still acquiring titles. I did go on to read a statement from the company manager from back in March, he is trying to "right the ship", but it seems things are business as usual at MB, which means they cant keep a street date to save their souls. Oh well. I guess I'll just put these two on the back burner and enjoy the surprise when it comes 3,6, or 9 months down the road, if at all...
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.
