Not sure what is up with my Pre-order I made during the Holiday Sale for the Berserk and Samurai Champloo steelbooks on AOL, the order itself has an orange "Processing in Progress" box but when you open the order there are two red "Cancelled" boxes showing underneath. Has my order actually been cancelled or is this something normal with their site caused by the steelbooks having no release dates now? I certainly don't want to lose the £24.99 Holiday sale price for each of the two steelbook sets... I did send a message to AOL to see what is up.

It's a quirk of the system. All my orders, even the ones that have shipped state they've been cancelled twice in the order details.

It was like that all of my orders made prior to the website update. Even on my pre-orders of Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai CE and Toradora CE. I believe everyone has this on their orders made prior to the website update, and if the current status is "Processing in Progress", the order hasn't been cancelled, and will get sent out once they have the stock (whenever that may be).

unsurprising news but MVM confirming no plans for a theatrical release of the third Heavens Feel movie. Although them confirming they do not hold the rights for a theatrical screening potentially leaves the possibility that anime ltd could pick it up for a theatrical run?
Outside of festival showings I highly doubt it. So far only the first has seen a theatrical release at Scotland Loves Anime with them skipping the second. I'd keep my expectations very low

One should also note, that due to the current situation, most several countries in Europe banned cinemas until further notice.

Yeah. The current climate doesn't guarantee that the screens would be filled. There is no doubt some would be when the situation allows for large gatherings again, even if warnings are still in place, but it's a risky endeavour right now. At least with home releases they know there is stability there. If anything people will want more stuff to watch at home than ever before if they are stuck there.

Yeah.
However, it is possible that upcoming home video might also be affected.
The German relase of "Date a Live Movie" is postponed due to production delays with the packaging (Steelcase, no standard edition), The German collector's edition for "The Promised Neverland" is also postponed due to production delays for the special items.
(All preorders will be fullfilled as standard edition, with a collector's edition without disc sent later when avaiable)

Disc production seems unaffected, as this takes place in Poland, where numbers are very low.

In Austria, and afaik Italy, all bookstores, electronic stores and entertainment stores have been closed until further notice. Other countries may follow soon. This might impact sales numbers, as only online shopping stays avaiable.

That’s until the postal service shuts down.

what are the chances of MVM doing proper collections for the whole of monogatari like the second season box set.
I am interested in picking up the series, but the idea of having a season 2 box set (which is incomplete as it doesn’t include hana) then having the singles releases for the first season (bake,Nise and Neko Black) final season and movies isn’t that appealing.

it does have Hana on it, which boxset were you refering to, the UK release from a couple of months ago does.
As far as other boxsets/season sets, it really depends on AoA, since they hold all the cards, if they do, then MVM will probably as well.

The Second Season set does actually include Hanamonogatari so you're safe there.

Unfortunately much of this relies on what Aniplex would allow and since they haven't done a complete first season set we likely won't see one for quite some time

As others have said, Hanamonogatari is included in the Second Season boxset. The most I would expect from First Season is a Nisemonogatari + Neko Black set like the one they have in Japan.
