Out This Week – 19th December 2016

It’s almost that time, Christmas is right around the corner and come this time next week we’ll be counting down the days to the new year. If you didn’t see via social media there a number of delays from All the Anime and Funimation meaning the majority of their titles slipping into the new year. In stark contrast, however, the colossal titan of manga releases is today the 20th with the majority of what’s on offer this week coming out today.

A fan favourite returns for the first time on Blu-ray in Death Note Complete Series & OVA Collector’s Edition from Manga Entertainment. Featuring all 37 episodes of the series plus the two Death Note OVAs – Relight: Visions of a God and Relight 2: L’s Successors this definitive edition is a must watch for fans and newcomers alike. MVM Entertainment brings us our second title of the week in Sakura Trick on both Blu-ray and DVD. You can read our review of Death Note Complete Series & OVA Collector’s Edition here and we aim to have a review for Sakura Trick up shortly.

It’s here, the day manga fans have been waiting for, over 40+ titles will be available from today with more still to come in the week. Viz Media and Yen Press dominate proceedings here with plenty of fan favourites and much, much more!
