Rumor: Media Blasters license rescues Record of Lodoss War?
I was in Media Blaster's store, Rare Flix over 3 weeks ago, and two Media Blasters employees told me they had licensed rescued Record of Lodoss War, and assured me both the OVA series and the TV series would be re-released together in the upcoming months. Both employees also represent Media Blasters at cons around the country. However they have yet to announce this formally for whatever reasons. So please take this as rumor until Media Blasters confirms it. Record of Lodoss War (OVA series) was released on VHS, and was first released on DVD in 1998 by CPM with the help of Image Entertainment in a (purple) box set. They later re-released it in 2002 on their own, in the red boxset. It has been out of print for some time now. The TV series was released in 2000 on DVD.
