  1. This is one of those things where I can see people being understandably pissed at Animeigo. They just put out the Shogun Assassin blu-ray set, a lot of people probably bought it thinking there wasn’t gonna be a Lone Wolf and Cub set and now…they’re screwed.

    Same thing with RaroVideo USA putting out the Fernando di Leo Crime Collection on DVD…everyone buys it, then out of nowhere they announce the Fernando Crime Collection on Blu-ray. People get pissed and stop trusting RaroVideo USA
