Rurouni Kenshin USA Blu-Ray OVAs & Movie by Aniplex

Is there a number released by Aniplex on how limited the 3 sets were?

Seems that every site I look up always ending up at $100.00 or Sold Out

I was disappointed at how they did this. Way too expensive and sold out extremely quickly.
Why only do Limited releases of stuff you know will sell like hotcakes?

Number of units are very rarely shared nowadays. These releases are direct Japanese imports with the addition of an English translate booklet.

RightStuf.com still has be the movie in-stock. They are the sole official online retailer for the U.S. There are other B&M retailers that sells Aniplex of America (AoA) products in various conventions. All retailer details can be found here as well: http://aniplexusa.com/retailers/.

Holy crap, didn't even know that this was out. Guess that is what happens when you are out of the loop for a bit. Was just able to order all three through C&L just now. For my favorite and first anime series, this was a no brainer, although the finale was... a tad disappointing, but that is a topic for another day.

1 out of 3 (the other are amazing as well).

Thanks for the info - but this caught many by surprise and most sold (per Blu-ray OVA/Movie released) in Amazon/Auction market averages $100.00 above

New Kyoto Arc OVA? The reviews have been pretty average at best.
