Out This Week: One Piece, Bilal, Mitchiko and Hatchin and More

This week's new animated home entertainment releases may be small in number but they still contain some gems. UK readers are getting an overdue release of Bilal: A New Breed Of Hero, the first CG animated movie produced in the Middle East (read our review here), although sadly no sign of a Blu-Ray edition.

Across the pond, One Piece's physical releases continue with the first season 10 collection, while cult fave Michiko and Hatchin (reviewed here) gets a new Blu-Ray and Digital release on Funimation's Essentials range. Don't forget: keep reading after the releases to see some great animation bargains!
