In this week's new animated Home Entertainment releases, the UK finally gets a Blu-Ray release for the second season of Rick and Morty, a new edition of the Ghost In The Shell movie sequel Innocence and a handful of other new titles. The US meanwhile sees the usual mix of anime releases, with new titles like Pop Team Epic and Dragon Ball Super alongside several reissues, complete collections and re-releases. Warner Bros has a very active week in animation, releasing repackaged versions of several of their recent DC Animated Universe movies, alongside collections of vintage superhero cartoons and even a complete collection of Cartoon Network series Courage The Cowardly Dog.
