Eureka Seven Novel Reprint?

Cover of First Novel in Japanese

So, the first novel in the four novel adaptation of the Eureka Seven anime, titled “Blue Monday”, was supposed to have come out in late April of this year. But apparently, there were no copies according to some sources to even be shipped out.

Now apparently, when I asked Barnes & Noble to check on it today, they said that their computers were informing them that Bandai had reprinted the books and were now in stock.

But wait, why would they need to “reprint” the novels only three months after supposedly being supposedly initially released?

Does anyone have any thoughts or theories as to why there was a delay, or need to reprint? According to some, they recieved their books on time, but only through CERTAIN publishers, while others reported none in stock by other publishers.

Were the critics right, should Bandai steer clear of publishing? Or is this just a small fumble in their plans for the future?

Leave us your opinions below.

    This may be a bit late but I only just discovered this site. Sometimes I’ve heard of entire printings of books going bad due to some weird error and in printings where not very many books are created the entire line up could potentially go bad. I remember this happening to printings of Foxtrot a couple years back. However it only took them a few days to fix the error not three months as reported here.
