Out This Week: 'Megalo Box', 'Cinderella' Signature Edition and More

The summer is traditionally a slow time for new home entertainment releases. What do they expect us to do, go outside? This week the UK gets just two new releases, anime fantasy Grimoire Of Zero and Welcome to The Ballroom, plus a pair of Studio Ghibli films re-released as steelbook Blu-Rays (only available from online retailer Zavvi).

Over in the US things are considerably more lively with a decent selection of anime old and new, including cult hit Megalo Box and Gainax's classic Royal Space Force (aka Wings Of HonnĂȘamise)
