Eleven Arts, Shout! Factory Announce Home Video Distribution Agreement

If I were Right Stuf, I’d be kind of Pissed right now because, I’m pretty sure Shout Factory got the Title everyone wants, namely A Silent Voice

By going with Shout Factory I’m guessing they are aiming for a wider retail release for the titles . Something which Rightstuf probably would not be able to make happen .

Wait I thought @animetoday had this distribution deal back when they announced it back at Otakon?

Right Stuf has a deal to create and sell high-end LE collectors’ sets direct to consumers with ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio. Some movies in our deal may be available as such. Shout is focused on releasing titles widely thru stores and online retail including RightStuf

So, as of midnight, Zatch Bell, Saint Seiya (both the Sanctuary part of the series, as well as the Hades OVAs) and several other Toei titles that Cinedigm distributes, have all expired on Crunchyroll.

While not confirmed for certain, this likely means that the deal they have to distribute Toei titles has either expired, or are going to expire. I would advise anyone that wants to pick these titles up, to do so while you still can. While I don’t think this’ll remain out of print forever, it’s better safer than sorry.
