I ordered Angel Beats when they had the 60% off going out of print sale.

I ordered it November 3, they charged me as soon as I ordered it, and they just shipped it today.

Looking at the tracking information, it is coming from Grimes Iowa. I can't imagine Sentai would coincidentally have a fulfillment center in the same small city as Right Stuf.

Has anyone else ordered directly from Sentai's store front and noticed that it is coming from Grimes Iowa?

Yes.
Sentai uses RightStuf as a fulfillment center and warehouse.
This is why you will see orders being shipped from Grimes, IA.
Sentai originally had a few exclusive deals with RightStuf to distribute limited/special editions.
Since the partnership worked so well, they decided to open their own storefront page with RightStuf stocking and fulfilling orders.

I wonder if Right Stuf dedicates a portion of their wharehouse to Sentai's Storefont. I would think inventory tracking would be a headache if they pulled from the same source, plus the price discrepancies between the storefronts would make that kind of odd.

Sentai charged me as soon as I placed the order, Right Stuf doesn't charge until they ship the order.
