Out This Week: 'My Hero Academia', 'Tatami Galaxy' 'Zombillenium' and More

This week, the hugely popular anime superhero hit My Hero Academia continues in the US, and the cult favourite Masaaki Yuasa series The Tatami Galaxy finally gets a physical release in America. There's also the 50th anniversary Blu-Ray release of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? It's a pretty quiet release in the UK, but a good one for Pokemon fans, with a release of three movies on DVD and the digital release of Detective Pikachu.
