What a way to start the new year, right?
Gee, thanks western anime fanbase for NOT supporting the shows you like on DVD/BD.
I was looking forward to the second season of K-ON!! and Nichijou (and my friend kgods was looking forward to the rest of Gundam Unicorn and Turn A). While it’s great that we live in a time where we as fans can download these shows and watch them, I still like to support the physical releases (and no, I won’t be buying any Japanese raped priced DVDs).
At the same time, me and many others have had to cut back on our spending of shows. Madoka Magica by Aniplex USA is still coming out ( you know I had to preorder that, but only the RE DVDs). Sentai Filmworks has some nice stuff coming (I still need to pick up MM! and Soredemo (And Yet the World Turns) is coming).
I guess change in the industry is inevitable. Still, I did my best to support Bandai Ent.’s release. I bought each individual volume of Lucky Star and the first season of K-On! Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
Although, the article does state that it won’t license anymore NEW anime. So, things like K-ON! S2 and the rest of Gundam Unicorn could still come out. Hopefully! I can live without Nichijou despite enjoying it but not having more K-On! is a crime.
