One of my favorite anime is Blood+, for some reason I never got the show on DVD I'm not a collector of anime shows on DVD or Blu-Ray. I'm going to start buying my favorite anime now though. I looked on crackle to see if Blood+ was still streaming and to my surprise it's not on any streaming service I can find! I then checked to see where I could purchase Blood+ on DVD or Blu-Ray a week ago Blood+ was $900+ or more, now I think it's unavailable. I checked on eBay and lucked out someone was selling part one and part two of the series for $36! The reason it was so cheap they no longer had the cases, I had seen some other offerings on eBay for Blood+ but they were definitely bootleg so I steered clear of those. The set I got are 100% legit with the Sony and Aniplex logos on them, also the disc are almost pristine with very little wear on them I'm so happy I lucked out on getting these because it seems part one is completely out of print while you can still get part two. I can't believe part one is being sold for hundreds of dollars Aniplex should re-print the series I'm sure it would sell even as a limited run. The next series I'm going to buy is steins gate I've never seen steins gate and I've heard good things about it, after that I want to get Baccano, and then Black Lagoon, Jormungand, then Hellsing Ultimate, Cowboy Bebop. I own a few ghibli Blu-Ray from up on poppy hill, mononoke hime, spirited away, and howl's moving castle, but I need to get the rest, "especially" Ocean Waves as it never seen American Blu-Ray release. Oh and Eden of the East. If anything, this little adventure I had hunting down Blood+ has taught me is that they won't stay on streaming forever so buy your favorite anime while you can "Before!!!" they go out of print! Ohh and Canaan! I love that anime. Also buy your favorite anime before you get too old and forget the name of what your favorite anime was! If anyone has some recommendation of anime to buy before they go out of print I would love that thanks!

Is it common for anime to go out of print like that? Have any other anime titles gone extinct like Blood+? Have there been any other AEE's?(Anime Extinction Event)
