I haven't been collecting long enough to know what happens to limited editions, so here is my concern:
Since the listing doesn't show quantity left, are there a limited number of copies or is there an unlimited number available if you order before the release date?
I'm mainly asking about this because I found out garden of sinners is getting a limited edition release and I want it, but can't afford it at the moment. I'm probably going to get enough money by the time of its release date, but I'm worried it will be out of stock by then. Should I borrow money to buy this now(assuming there is interest) or save up to buy it later?

Limited Edition means they won't keep making them after the first run normally. You should be okay with not buying it right away, though once RightStuf puts up an item counter on it I would try to get it as quickly as possible. As if you think they are expressive now it will skyrocket when it goes OOP.

CheapOne already answered your question, but I'll add on to it.

Aniplex USA works pretty much exclusively with Right Stuf, so they'll know when the LE is running out.

Another thing to take into account with "limited editions" is what you're actually getting-with crapamation all you get is a nice chipboard case and a trinket like an 8 page "art" booklet or a mouse pad.with aniplex you'll get booklets and mini posters, etc. For me content is much more important-that's why I like Sentai's releases-just the facts ma'm.

An Aniplex LE is MUCH more limited than your typical FUNimation/whoever LE release. I'll just throw that out there.

I would guess there would be a normal version released in the future.

Hard to say with Aniplex USA and NIS America. It really depends if there is enough demand for one.

I remember only a few years ago when everybody put a lot of special stuff into their dvd releases.
