Funimation
has issued new retailer solicitation lists, and thus confirmed that it will ship the anime series

Garden
before canceling its release earlier this year. However, the only way to get the final episodes on a North American DVD is to get Funimation's Red Garden
Complete Collection Part 2 box for a suggested retail price of US$49.98.

Similarly, ADV Films released five of its planned six DVDs for Welcome to the NHK However, Funimation is only releasing the final episodes in its Welcome
to the NHK Season 1 Part 2 box set, which will retail for a suggested price of US$59.98. On November 25, Funimation is releasing another former ADV Films
title,
Pumpkin Scissors
, in two box sets for US$59.98 (suggested retail price) each, although ADV Films had released all but one of the DVDs for it.
