This is how Bandai makes its money nowadays. You're forgetting that the company isn't healthy like Geneon, Viz, ADV, and FUNimation are.
Glad to hear that CCA is finally getting a re-release, as I had it planned for this year originally.
Also, it's nice to see that the official freaking site announced some stuff before a fansite does (either that, or it's my irrational annoyance at anything AnimeOnDVD-related). Not to mention it's nice to have big coverart for once.
EDIT: Looking at the .pdf, it seems this re-release of the Esca movie will be the single-disc version, not the fancy boxset like the original Anime Legends release.
