Not to worry @tonka, this doesn’t effect us as it’s basically Sentai & Section 23 switching over to AMC’s Disc Distributor. It only affects Amazon, Right Stuf, et al that sell Sentai and Section 23’s catalog.
In the world where high school students Yukari and Misaki live, it’s a cold and unfeeling government bureaucracy that decides who marries, and the prospective bride and groom are given little choice in the matter. Which means that even though Yukari wants nothing more than to marry Misaki, that dream is destroyed when he’s ordered to marry Ririna instead. It seems hopeless… or is it? Just as taxes can sometimes be dodged, Cupid has ways of dodging federal regulations and making sure that his arrows fly true, and a potential loophole opens when Ririna reveals that she’s not against Yukari and Misaki being a couple. However, when it appears that Ririna and Yukari are getting closer, things might be getting unexpectedly complicated as a tale of true romance becomes one of LOVE AND LIES! Rating: TV-14 (S,V)
Update: Regarding wholesale and distribution only, the last day to order Sentai’s products from Right Stuf will be on March 24. The last day for Right Stuf to ship Sentai’s products for wholesale and distribution will be on March 31. Right Stuf will still continue to sell Sentai’s titles, and the transfer to DS will not change this.
Basically, this is Sentai switching their wholesale distribution system from SonyStuf to a different wholesaler–as S5R said, AMC’s distribution channel. This is not just for the retailers that S5R mentioned but for all the brick and mortar anime stores that may still be out there.
