Did Best Buy break street date on volume 4 DVD of the OVA? I’m a little confused. Most web sites, including wikipedia and amazon.com state today (Sept 23) as the release date of volume 4 in the US. However, the Best Buy near our town had them on the shelves as early as Friday the 19th. Mike and I went there Friday night to grab the Haruhi boxset, and they had Hellsing volume 4, I held it in my hand. It was real. Though oddly, they did not have volumes 1-3.
I guess it is a moot point, as today is the “official” release date.. but it seems odd. There are not any torrents out there of it yet either, which further leads me to believe it wasn’t suppose to be on sale yet. Generally a high-profile title like this will have a dvd-rip a day or two after release.
To create further confusion, their website states the release date was the 16th.. yet it is “Not Available” and backordered.. also the price is way off. The store had it for $19. Whatever, I’m going to wait until all the volumes are finished and released before I buy the dvds anyway. For now I’m waiting for that DVD-rip. 😉
