Bandai Entertainment discontinuing all sales

Well, I was afraid this would happen.

Got a couple months left to purchase anything you might want, so you don't need to order everything right this minute. But all the same, make sure you get everything you want while you can.

Hm, anyone know of a list somewhere of what all they're selling? I'd be nice to double-check to see if they have anything you're interested in before it goes away...

Go to Right Stuf and do an advanced search and select Bandai as publisher.

So, does this mean no more Unicorn for North America release? Or does someone else bring over Gundam Unicorn?

For the DVDs yes. For the blu-rays no as they are handled directly by Bandai Visual aka their home company in Japan.

I had heard at one point that Bandai was going to switch to digital distribution for its properties. Was this just a rumor, or will some of their licensed properties still be commercially available in some form?
