If Japan is so worried about reverse importation because of this title, along with other animes I am sure, what will happen to all future Blu-ray releases?
I think they are just throwing a fit with Heaven's Lost Property itself. As I've seen with Madoka, it's possible for them to restrict where the item can be shipped.
"Due to licensing restrictions, this product cannot be shipped to Japan."
It doesn't stop people from buying it from some random person, but I highly doubt it's the majority of people who would go through the hassle for this. It's kind of lame if a second season doesn't even come out on the same formats of the first season, especially when it's being "downgraded". It'll be almost as lame as K-ON!, which misses every single extras the original releases.. it doesn't even have textless openings and endings, which seems to be a pretty standard extra to have nowadays.
Oh well.. if it never comes out on Blu-ray we won't really have a choice but to buy the DVD, I know I will, with a bit of a disappointment, but I'll still get it.
