Out This Week: Attack On Titan The Final Season, Onyx Equinox, Sonic The Hedgehog and More

There is nostalgia of many different stripes available in this week's new home entertainment releases. Whether that's classic Disney in the new Anniversary edition Blu-Ray of The Jungle Book. Or old-school video game based fun in the Blu-Ray debut of the complete Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog (the syndicated series, not to be confused with Sonic Saturday AM).  Or retro anime with Galactic Gale Baxingar or the controversial 90s OAV Angel Cop.

For something a little more up to date, this week also sees the Blu-Ray debut of Attack On Titan: The Final Season Part One and Crunchyroll's Meso-American inspired original Onyx Equinox. In The UK this week, there is a full season collection of My Hero Academia's Fourth Season and new standard editions of cult faves Bartender and Future Diary.

In this week's deals section, look out for some big Studio Ghibli savings on Amazon UK.
