When I heard the news that Nanoha A’s would be out of print, I felt upet, This pretty much crush my hopes of watching the series with legit DVDs and actually owning it. In addition, I have lost some faith in the R1 Anime Industry for making all the licensed titles accessible. Some argue that watching the fansubs are unethical, but if I can’t obtain the show, I can’t possibly watch it without other means that is questionable.
The problem lies with Geneon USA since they have gone under in the past few years. Although Funimation distribute and market Anime licensed by Geneon, they don’t actually own the right to those shows. Therefore it was inevitable that this would happen. It was heartbreaking. On top of that, I can’t even obtain Shana either, which means I cannot watch that either. So hopefully Funimation or someone rescue the rights or it will probably be in limbo possibly forever.
