Is the limited edition already sold out? Listed as out of stock on the website and on Amazon.

It's hard to say right now with all of the supply issues and delays, but I note that for now discontinued titles (such as this) they additionally state 'Sold Out' and 'This product has been discontinued', which isn't currently the case with Kwaidan.

To be on the safe side I bought a copy from Base.com which even with shipping comes to the same price as directly from Eureka. I do believe the DVD of this title once appeared on their "Our top 10 best selling titles ever" list once.

And it now reads very limited stock on the page, and it's still OOS on Amazon.

I just ordered Kwaidan from Zavvi a few minutes ago so have at it before it's gone.

The official release date was April 27th and it's already sold out and unavailable? It must be a record for a 3 000 copies edition.

Unless another batch is in production.

They'll probably just reissue it now in a standard edition. Fistful of Dynamite sold similarly quickly

It's actually surprisingly even quicker to sell out : Fistful took a bit more than 2 months, Kwaidan barely 1.
It's quite certain, looking at these sales, Eureka will indeed re-release it in a standard version.

And my base order was just canceled. I suppose it was not meant to be!
