Out This Week: Black Clover, Fire Force, Red Vs Blue and More


Another month arrives, and we enter what is typically a slower period of the new home entertainment release calendar. So this week's new animation releases are a bit on the sparse side. And we hope you like anime, as aside from Red Vs Blue and the UK digital release of Onward, all this week's animation hails from Japan. There are new volumes of Black Clover on both sides of the pond- although the UK release is a few volumes behind. Elsewhere, you'll find a good mix of fantasy, horror, action and sci-fi in the rest of the releases.
