I've been wanting to get a hold of this show on home release. Anime Limited, the UK publisher, it seems won't do anything until the show has had a NA release, most likely they won't to use their authoring assets. Now AOA licensed this show nearly 2 years ago, and at the moment haven't announced any release dates, or even plans.

Has Aniplex said anything in the past about the show which a Google search wouldn't pick up, like a throwaway statement or post of Twitter/Facebook.

It's currently streaming on Netflix in the United States.

I also found this article from 2013 describing Aniplex's intentions to stream it in NA, followed by a disc release, but I couldn't actually find evidence that the discs were actually released:

I think it bombed everywhere, from Japanese ratings and disc sales, to North American streaming numbers. Even if it didn't "bomb," I think the numbers must have been low enough that Aniplex USA put distributing the show on hold for the time being.
