Out This Week: 'Never Ending Man', 'Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpions Revenge' and More

Coming at you later than normal thanks to the Easter Bank Holiday weekend is our regular round-up of the latest animation and animation related home entertainment releases. It's a quieter week with the UK getting two new releases- Annonymous Noise and Hayao Miyazaki documentary Never Ending Man plus steelbook editions of My Neighbours The Yamadas and When Marnie Was There.  Meanwhile, the only new title in the US is anime Ao-Chan Can't Study, with the other releases all re-releases on Funimation's Essentials line.

The biggest title is probably a digital one again this week. The first animated movie based on the veteran fighting game series Mortal Kombat makes its debut on digital this week. Scorpion's Revenge is also the first R-rated adaptation of the games.
