Other than an announcement (on ANN or something) that a company is completely leaving the market (Geneon, Bandai/Beez, Tokyopop) or an announcement from a company that they've lost the license to a particular title, not really I think.

It's totally up to the whim of the companies how big their print/press runs are and if they want to reprint/repress once a previous print/press run is close to running out or not and AFAIK they don't publish anything about such facts...

Rightstuf lists "Quantity Remaining" for releases running out of stock (for ex. ) , but that doesn't seem to be something you can use the search to find...
(plus half of such cases will be older releases on low stock, while there's a newer re-release with plenty of stock)
My anime/manga/merchandise etc. :

Short answer, no!

There's really no way to tell if something is going to go out of print or not. If there was, then the scalpers would be taking full advantage of it.
