While the weekend was busy with rumors of whether or not it was true, an official press release from ADV Films confirms that Geneon will be moving their sales, marketing, and distribution duties to ADV as of October 1st.
Personally, I’m rather disgusted with anime fandom at the moment thanks to many of the people I’ve seen posting online over the weekend. Those doing their own little happy dances that they might be able to get a Geneon title for a slightly bigger discount while ignoring the fact that real people who care deeply about this market are losing their jobs now. Wow, a whole friggin $1 to $3 dollars more off. Big whoop. Learn to shop better or don’t buy so much at once.
