It's sad such a popular and amazing series such as this doesn't have an official NA release. essentially the only way to find out about it is to break the law. I know it's old, but some company needs to pick it up.

According to rumor, as of 2012 Funimation had the license for streaming it, but Aniplex wanted people to buy the DVD/BluRay through them. Then it gets weird with a toy company squatting on the rights.

Just for note, you can buy the (import) of the game, and about half a trillion of the figurines, on Amazon. I didn't try very hard to find the actual DVDs or BluRay discs of the OVA or television anime releases.

yeah but that's limited to only the blu rays for the anime, since the dvds are region locked. and with the price so astronomically high, it's unnerving to even consider.

That probably won't keep Funimation from losing Black Butler Season II and Shiki in June. I guess we'll see, but if it were that simple, then Sekirei, Baccano and Full Metal Alchemist would be available for streaming at FunimationNow and or still in print for Bluray/DVD
