Urusei Yatsura Anime Going Out Of Print (Mania.com)

It's the end of an era as AnimEigo has announced that its biggest series that they've worked on probably the longest will be drawing to a close come September of this year. They're not able to renew their license on the series so what's on hand is about all there is. Urusei Yatsura is the series that they started releasing in the early 90's at a time when all we were getting for the most part was either dubbed (and incomplete) series or OVAs and some movies and is one hundred percent responsible for my being an anime fan to this day as I was ready to move on to something else at that point since it was all looking the same. Urusei Yatsura gave me something new, very cultural and engaging to watch as well as incredibly funny. We will be lamenting this loss heavily. 

*Urusei Yatsura to go out of print on 30-September-2011*

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that we will be unable to renew our license for Urusei Yatsura (http://animeigo.com/products/anime/urusei-yatsura). We will be unable to accept orders after the 30th of September, 2011, and individual DVDs will almost certainly become unavailable before that date as our stocks become exhausted.

So if you've always been meaning to complete your collection of UY, now is the time.
