Out This Week: The Bobs' Burgers Movie, Fortune Favours Lady Nikuko, Castlevania and More

There are no new animated home releases in the UK this week, but it's a pretty busy week across the pond. The first movie outing for The Belchers arrives with a quick home release for The Bob's Burgers Movie, the highest profile release of the week. Making the move from streaming, Netflix's Castlevania's fourth and final season also arrives on disc. Or for those who prefer their anime quirkier and more wholesome, this week also sees the home release of Studio 4°C's charming Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko.

Castlevania: Season Four (Viz Pictures, Rated TV-MA)"Wallachia collapses into chaos as factions clash: some attempting to take control, others attempting to bring Dracula back from the dead. Nobody is who they seem and nobody can be trusted. These are the end times." 



Dai-Shogun: Great Revolution - Complete Collection (Sentai Filmworks, TV-MA)"What if the people of Japan never had to unify because mystical steam-powered robots defended the island from outside attack instead? That's the history Keiichiro Tokugawa grew up in, but the brash teen has the reckless ambition of helping unite the feuding feudal factions… and with some headstrong heroics and the help of the legendary giant robot Susanoo, he just might be able to do it! However, he'll have to deal with his girl problems first: the Susanoo requires a co-pilot-a female co-pilot-but every time Keiichiro gets close to a member of the opposite sex, he breaks out in a rash! Can Keiichiro find a nice young lady he's compatible with? Or will his feminine issues thrash, crash and forever trash his hopes of ending the futile feudal feuding forever?" 


 Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko (GKIDS/Shout Factory) "Nikuko is a brash, jolly, scattered, and passionate woman in an otherwise sleepy seaside town in northern Japan. She’s also the single mother of 11-year-old Kikuko, who is her opposite in many ways. Kikuko is a string-bean of a young girl, pensive, quietly curious, and methodical in how she approaches life in this small harbor town. Nikuko embarrasses Kikuko as any mom of a preteen would, but Nikuko’s bold spirit makes her especially well-known in a town where Kikuko herself wants nothing more than to simply blend in. As Kikuko navigates the everyday social dramas of middle school, enhanced with touches of magical realism from her ever-present imagination, a shocking revelation from the past threatens to uproot the pair’s tender relationship. Based on the popular novel by Kanako Nishi."

Well, Mineru is actually a college student, but she has a proposition for him… not THAT kind of proposition since Koushi's still a middle schooler… although one might wonder considering how many half-clad beauties he encounters upon entering the so called "Goddess' Dormitory."This is where the local college houses the girls who are too eccentric or unruly to fit in anywhere else, and they desperately need someone to maintain order and keep watch over them.
