Just a random thing, I've noticed that Amazon now has the 10th AE as "unavailable", Deep Discount DVD has it supposedly (though I doubt it) and Best Buy says that it's on Back Order. ADV's site, however, does not list it at all...

So, think it's been withdrawn comepletely? Or just pushed back even further?

Yes, now it's release date is November 14 2006. I hope that they don't move it much further.

no, I already knew that a while back they had pushed it to the 14th of November. I saw when Amazon listed that date. What I mean now is taht I think the release date has been pushed back even further, and they don't know when the hell it's gonna be released.

If they release it in Blu-ray, I firmly think that it will be in 720p and that it will still contain 2-3 episodes per disc.
Why not encode them at 1080p like all the major Hollywood studio distributors?

In fact, it just doesn't make sense to encode at 720p on a really large media like a BD and putting just a pair or three of episode.... what are they doing with the rest of the space? They'll use it to put 1000 trailers :evil:? The more little of the BD media is about 20 GB, if I'm not wrong. This means that they could at least fit half BD with a bitrate of 20 Mb/s (I think that this is a good bitrate for MPEG-2, but if they use AVC they could even use the half of this bitrate, so it doesn't make sense to encode at only 720p, but of course they don't make sense, they're fool).

I missed this, but I do notice Amazon.com has changed the lsting again back to what it was.

Amazon.com on 9/30 wrote:Availability: This title will be released on November 14, 2006. Pre-order now. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com.

(as before I say with polite skeptisism) Where did you get it?

EDIT+++
Something I find interesting, Amazon.com still says November 14th as a release date. ADVfilms.com has announced their releases for November 7th, and November 21st, but not any releases for November 14th, and there is still no mention of the box set on the site from what I can find...

One thing I read in a recent issue of Newtype USA was a correction they made with 1(? 3?) sets of the boxset begin given as a grand prize for the monthly contests. Supposedly, they can't confirm that the set will include that Memoirs book, or Vol.1 of the Angelic Days manga. My response? WTF. :| If that's the case, then why the hell do sites like Rightstuf have that info up?

Amazon doesn't even have it listed on the site anymore, yet my order for it is still there. Wondering just what's going on because as it stands Amazon is my best choice for importing it.

It is not Amazon's fault, it is ADV's. Amazon is just trying to deal with the constant pushing back of the release date that they are subject to. In return they just let the orders for the collection stand and hold onto the info till they get the collection in. Eventually they will update the new delivery estimate for your order. Just give them a couple days.

I bet ADV wasn't going to put in any extra features at all. Then they got more than enough preorders needed to make live-action Evangelion and said "OH SHI- now we really haveto put in some more extras." Either that or release it all on blu-ray dvd :D

Well I e-mailed their Customer Support regarding the situation with the 10th Anniversary set and I just got a reply like a week later.

Hello,

This has been taken off the release schedule, a new release date
has not been set yet. Hopefully we will have a new date soon.


Thank you,

ADV Customer Service

Wasn't it the actual 10th anniversary ages ago? I'm sure I have figures with a '10th Anniversary' mark on the back of the box. o_o
