Out This Week: 'Trolls: World Tour', 'Bloom Into You', 'Fruits Basket' and More

Despite what's going on around the world, animation home entertainment releases are still coming out- and we're still here to round them up for you. With that said, this week is looking fairly sparse, with just two releases in the UK. The US fares somewhat better, but it would be a pretty empty schedule without Funimation,  who bring us the usual mix of new anime releases and re-issues of past titles. This week's biggest mainstream release, however,  is the ground-breaking early digital release of Trolls World Tour, which was due to hit cinemas this week.
