I just found that, even though the RightStuf sale is over, the DVD prices are still the same. So yeah, get 'em. Otherwise I'll send you to... ANOTHER DIMENSION!!!  :saga:

I got an email from Rightstuf saying they couldn't ship my order due to unforeseen demand.

Good work, my fellow saints. It seems that Saint Seiya take the throne it deserves.

I got the email too and it said that another possibility is that the Item has not been released yet (it releases on June 25th)...

Yeah. RightStuf frequently sends emails to you about your order status even if it's something on preorder.  Also, their preorder emails never acknowledge that the item in question is a preorder item.

I called Rightstuf this afternoon and they told me that they are getting at least 75+ more copies, so our pre-orders are still on track.

That's good news. I did received confirmation at ACEN from rep of Discotek that they have indeed looked into getting, and would love to release all of the original Saint Seiya on DVD if the movie sales justify them doing so.

If it comes to that, I will accept it. Personally, I would love to finish the original series dubbed, but I can switch to subbed if I need to.

With that said, the DVDs should be out now. Mine shipped today and I'll get them within two days.

I watched the first 3 movies with some friends. The visual and audio quality are great, especial for an 80's Toei anime.

Does the audio sound muffled like most old Toei stuff, or does it sound like they actually kept the sound masters?

I would think they at least kept the audio masters for the movies they made even if they didn't for the show.

Toei kept lower-quality sound masters for their TV shows; I know that for a fact.

Anywho, if they did, fantastic.

The audio doesn't sound muffled at all. It sounds old, but not muffled.

Here's a comparison I made.
