Funi has slid the release date for "Index" back another week. It's now being released on the 18th. They made that decision sometime within the last two weeks. I'm getting a little tired of this crap. What's next? Are they going to slide Shana season 2 into next year?
Sliding a release date back a week is no big deal. They usually do this when they can't guarantee that every retail (B&M) store will receive the title on time. This is especially true during the holiday season, where the shipping industry is very congested. After all, the last thing a store wants is to receive a product a day or two after the official release date.
You will still get the title early through Right Stuf though. Online retailers and distributors are the first ones to receive the title.
