Out This Week: Kids On The Slope, Azur Lane, Charlotte and more

 


This week's list of new animation releases is unusual, in that there are more titles released in the UK than the US. The UK's releases include on disc debut for anime series Azure Lane, Chidori RSS and Charlotte Complete Collection on Blu-Ray, plus the second part of Hetalia World Party on DVD. The US meanwhile gets two Blu-ray titles from Sentai Filmworks: magical girl movie comedy Laidbackers and a new edition of the Shinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno collaboration musical drama Kids on The Slope.

Starting this week we'll also be including a list of select upcoming releases so you'll be able to keep an eye on forthcoming titles you might want to add to your collection!
