I wouldn't count on BB for anime purchases. Why are you using them? Surely you can use RS. Maybe Amazon? Or not an option?

I remember back in 1997, AnimeNation (based in Florida) was THE place to get anime. Then I was referred to RightStuf about late 1998. Other than RS/AN, I would get my anime from conventions. You should see my shelves of anime.

Also, got my KOR OVA/Movie Blu-ray in my hands! Mine! All mine!

I tried using rightstuff over the early summer and they stole $40 from me.
I got my package of Gundam Wing and volume one was missing.
I called them, sent them a cheap ton of pictures like they asked for. They then said file a claim through the post office, I tried but couldn't because the post office and I said the package was delivered.
Then they said that I needed to make a file with the post office, again, I tried but they wouldn't do anything ssince I had the box.
Volume one of Wing was missing.
Volime two and endless waltz and a crap ton of paper was in the box.
Nothing else.
After numerous calls and run around with rightstuff and the post office, I gave up.
I'll never order from them again.

Sounds like RightStuf's customer service has been going down hill recently.

I had almost the same exact experience about a year or 2 ago. Except in my case the missing titles caused damage to a couple titles I had in the box because you know shipping and empty space in a box without really good protection is never a good thing.

Blame was put on the Post Office to the point of them having to check. Long story short, I eventually got things handled after lots of convincing.

The best way I’ve found to get a problem fixed after the CS fails at Rightstuf is to post in the 1 and Only Rightstuf.Com Thread/FAQ thread over at fandom post in the retail section . Rep there usually responds in a day and the situation is handled like Rightstuf used to . People on the phone , chat , and email almost always act like I’m bothering them .
Last big problem I had the Phone CS would not even listen to the post master that the package was lost and they had to file the claim not me . Rep at Fandom fixed it and even had a supervisor call .

Out of curiosity, are Magic Knight Rayearth and Kimagure Orange Road the only two remastered TV series Discotek released? If so, anyone know how long the wait was between KOR's release in Japan and Discotek's? I was able to find out Rayearth was released 10/29/14 in Japan and on 1/31/17 by Discotek.

The reason is I'm trying to be hopeful here wondering if there's a chance the remaster of Yoroiden Samurai Troopers from last December is released by them. Got a chance to see the first episode of the JP Blu-ray and it's like night and day versus Discotek's DVD.

KOR does not have a Blu-ray release in Japan. The HD remaster premiered on the Japanese Netflix in September 2017.

Been mostly out of anime for the past year...

I'd been waiting for the Crusher Joe blu-rays for a while now and it still hasn't dropped. Am I to assume the DVD version sold poorly?

Legal rights issues, last I heard.

It's on the schedule, but that licensor usually insists on a 2-year hold-back before HD remasters can be issued overseas.

Crusher Joe will be a pre-order for me. I've been waiting decades to watch that one, ever since I saw the trailer for the Celebrity Home Entertainment VHS release, back in the 90's on one of their other tapes. Yeah, I ate up those localized versions cause that's what was available! Dallos, Clash Of The Bionoids, Tranzor-Z, Gaiking, etc. were all staples of my VHS rentals from Erol's, Blockbuster, and later, Hollywood Video.

Crusher Joe rules. I picked up the dvds to support Discotek and will gladly double dip for a bluray release.

We're also still waiting on the Galaxy Railways OVA BD that was mentioned on this Discotek Facebook post. Perhaps the DVD of that sold poorly?
