Media Blasters has sent out a brief informational notice about delays for a number of its upcoming releases, potentially related to the recent news of Best Buy's scaling back of their anime selection. The only title mentioned firmly with dates for anime fans is the release of Voltron: Defender of the Universe Set 7 which is being moved from its mid-January release to March 24th, 2009. And yes, we're getting formal news over two weeks after it was supposed to come out.
We also learned that "the titles listed below may be running a few weeks late." with no word on what the actual dates may be. Some of these may be shipping from retailers at different times as we have heard that at least Doujin Work's DVD release has been shipped to some people.
Lone Wolf & Cub TV Vol. 6 (Live Action)
Moribito: Guardian Of The Dark Vol. 3 of 8
Nighthead Genesis Vol. 3
Dojin Work Vol 1 Movie+Manga
Dojin Work - Pencil And Paper (Volume 1 of 3)
Media Blasters is also delaying their first Blu-ray release, Death Trance, until 05/05/2009.
