Out This Week: Earwig and The Witch, Clone Wars, Elfen Lied and More


AFA's weekly round-up of new animation home entertainment releases is here, a day later than normal due to the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.   This week we see the US home release of Goro (son of Hayao) Miyazaki's Earwig and The Witch, Studio Ghibli's first CG animated film and something for fans of old-school US animation with Thundarr The Barbarian. On the other side of the pond, UK readers get a pair of Your Name and Weathering With You director Makoto Shinkai's earlier films reissued as new editions, and the physical release of the final episodes of the Star Wars: Clone Wars CG 'toon.
