And all 3 Blu-Rays are $9.96 each on Amazon right now, though they are all out of stock. I haven't noticed them that low before.

About time; I've been waiting for Netflix to get this. I've gone through the Golden Age storyline a couple times already, so I held off buying these at their previous prices, although I considered it a couple times. At $10 each, I may just buy them. Have there been any hints as to when more movies will be released? I'm assuming they're still planning on adapting the rest of the manga.

The BDs are back to their normal price today and still out of stock.

So are we finally moving forward from the plot in the series/movies?

And to save everybody some time, the 3rd movie is totally worth checking out. The other 2? IMO, if you saw the series, skip them.

I never bothered to watch 2 & 3 after watching the 1st one. Figured they were just a gloss over/rehash of the series like the 1st one was.

1 and 2 are abbreviated versions of the series, the 3rd one is a 2 hour movie version of the last few episodes that actually expands on what's happening -- and since those were my favorite episodes to begin with, it was actually a pretty interesting watch. I could have easily done without #1 or #2 though.

I wonder why they decided to redo the Golden Age arc in the movies. Even with Miura slowing down his releases to a snail's pace, there's a lot of content available to adapt after that arc, and the setting is so wildly different anyway after what happens in the flashback that they could easily justify just jumping right in.

I was pretty bummed out by the bleak ending of the original TV series...was there meant to be more to the story?

Yep. Even now, the manga still hasn't been concluded. So there is plenty to do.

Hmm...was it an intentional decision to end the TV series where it ended? It hardly even felt like a cliff hanger, more like just a void. Where would one begin with the manga &/or other releases to pick up where the story left off?

When the show reach that point, the manga hadn't really advanced that much further, so I guess it was sort of intentional. It didn't even end where a manga chapter ended, it just stopped right in the middle of one. Without adding filler, I don't think they could've gone much beyond the eclipse at that point. There was a lot in the manga, to that point, that wasn't adapted for the show, so it may have always been planned as a one-off 25 episode show.

As to where to pick up in the manga, it actually starts a year or so after the eclipse, so you could start at volume 1 (the anime adapted volumes 4-13). To pick up exactly where the anime left off, you would want volumes 13 and 14.
