Manga no longer has movie licenses.

It’s been an assumption for a while, given that DVDs for Death & Rebirth and The End of Evangelion have been out of print for some time now, but it’s finally official, according to Steve Sargent of Manga Entertainment on the Anime News Network podcast, Manga no longer has the licenses for the Evangelion movies.  This is good news for Evangelion fans, as it means that the licenses will transfer to a new company, who will hopefully put out a superior anamorphic DVD that Manga promised back in the Summer of 2006.  Who knows, maybe we’ll even get a Bluray, or the real Rebirth!
