Out This Week: Magic Knight Rayearth, Starlight Revue, Demon City Shinjuku and More

This week, DreamWorks Animation's colourful Trolls World Tour comes to disc for collectors in the UK, following a highly successful and unconventional release structure. It's the only US-made animation (excluding the Trolls Movie Collection) released in either region this week, which is otherwise anime all the way.

Not that that stops it from being varied. We've got typical Shonen Jump fare (Black Clover, Rising of The Shield Hero), horror from the director of Ninja Scroll (Demon City Shinkiju), magical girl adventures (Magic Knight Rayearth) old school sci-fi (Galaxy Express 999) and more!

All information is compiled from a number of sources correct at time of publication as far as we are aware, but is subject to change.  Click provided to links to buy from Amazon UK (for UK releases) or Amazon or Right Stuf Anime (for the US). Affiliate links are used where available.
