Genshiken 2 Box Canceled, Dirty Laundry Delayed

Media Blasters sets the record straight

Media Blasters has sent out a notice that won't surprise some fans but will sadden them nonetheless. The plans for a box to hold the Genshiken 2 series upon completely has now been scrapped so only the DVD itself will be released. From their Kitty Media label, Dirty Laundry has been delayed to some time in March 2010. This in itself isn't too much of a surprise since the title was originally slated for a late September 2009 release and hasn't been talked about for nearly two months now. Nothing like delaying a release two months after it was supposed to arrive.

God damn it! The only reason why I started collecting the singles of Genshiken 2 is because I knew that an artbox was coming to  hold them. If I had known this was going to happen, I would've waited for a box set release. Now I'm going to be stuck with singles lying around and nothing to hold them. 

Last time I ever buy singles from Media Blasters for sure. I've been burned too many times by US anime licensors. And I'm not going to be so generous with my dollars anymore with them.

Atleast Dirty Laundry has some sort of date.

I've been wondering what's up with Media Blaster's funky rescheduling.  And I was kinda disgusted with all the license-rescuing that's been happening with everybody.  Is it the recession, spoiled punks not putting their money where their love is, or something else the people within the industry doesn't want us to know (which is usual)?

Honestly, this is EXACTLY what I'm talking about.  You focus on crap, as opposed to something that probably would sell (more than probably wouldn't); you shoot yourself in the foot.  Deaf ears beget bloody feet.

I'm still planning on getting that title from Kitty Media.  And my hope is that KM gets NEW (as opposed to rescued) adult anime titles in the future.  That's MY hope.

This sucks- I'm with Metrooid on this. I'll end up buying the single dvds then trading them in for credit once the bosx set comes out. The main reason I also started getting the Genshiken 2 dvd's was to get the ender box. Dammit.

As far as dirty laundry I have no idea what it is about so i dont care.
