    Six volumes (12 episodes, released in order), and then... nothing. Were the sales too poor to continue the series?

    At the last San Diego Comic Con, it was mentioned that Rhino would start to release Battle of the Planets Box Sets. I'm not sure if these would include the Gatcheman episodes, like on the single disc releases or not.

    Just a quick addition

    Volume 7 and 8 are out in Australia (and like the R1 sets, feature the alternative episodes).

    Vol 7
    Vol 8

    I expect these a still being produced as Rhino will be boxing them. I doubt sales in Austraila along would be enough to keep the series going.

    Another Quick Addition
    Here's the news story from one of the websites:
