According to a helpful informant on rec.games.go, Viz has stopped publishing the Hikaru no Go DVDs in English:
Viz has cancelled the release of the remaining DVDs as single disks due to poor sales. Basically, they’ve discovered how expensive it is to translate and market, and are instead focusing their energies on the shounen market (Naruto, Bleach, Death Note), where they get a greater return for their effort.
There is speculation that Viz will, later this year, release a slim-case box set with ALL the episodes of HnG in it. No official confirmation yet form Viz Media, though. Pisses me off, though, that to get it, I’ll have to re-buy episodes I already bought, just to complete the series.
I am annoyed.
