UK Releases For July 24, 2023

Fortune Favors Lady Nikuko (Anime Ltd., PG) "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."

Justice League: Warworld (Warner Bros, 15) "Until now, DC's Justice League has been a loose association of super-powered individuals.

Now the only thing that's important is not failing a crash course in Zombie Apocalypse survival, keeping himself, his childhood crush Rei, and the other students moving, breathing and fighting long enough to escape from the slaughterhouse their school has become. And that's just the beginning of the unliving nightmare, as even as former classmates and faculty rise again as cannibalistic ghouls, not all the survivors are willing to work together or share weapons and shelter… which means that Komuro's group is now fighting a battle on multiple fronts and can never completely trust anyone, not even each other!"
Iria: Zeiram The Animation (Discotek Media, NR)"As an apprentice Hunter, Iria can’t wait until she can get the fun jobs like her big brother (and top Hunter), Gren. In fact, he’s just got a new one: get to a ship adrift in space and evacuate crew, passengers, and cargo. It sounds fun enough to tag along, uninvited... only, it goes wrong from the start. Evading an assassination attempt from the very people that hired them, they make it to the job site, and find it’s a bloody one. The crew is dead, the passengers are terrified, and the cargo? Well, that moved itself… Iria encounters the so-called cargo, and it’s Zeiram, a creature said to be immortal. The terrifying monster turns Iria’s life upside down, as she barely manages to escape from the ship with her life. Gren, however, is not so lucky. Iria finds herself caught in a conspiracy to cover up the events of that day, and with every step she takes, she finds Zeiram right behind her. Why is it so interested in her? Does it simply want to kill her, or is there something more beneath its black carapace?"

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! - Complete Collection (Sentai Filmworks, TV-14) "Midori Asakusa is obsessed with animation, but while she spends hours doodling and coming up with amazing ideas, she knows that it'll be difficult to produce animated films on her own. Fortunately, Sayaka Kanamori is more into planning and finances, and she's been thinking of ways to turn Midori's ideas into something practical and profitable. That's what friends are for, right? Still, for all their hopes and wishes, their future as the next animation wunderkinds is looking rather sketchy… until they meet Tsubame Mizusaki, who daydreams about becoming an animator, even though her parents have forbidden her from joining their school's anime club. Solution: form a new club focused on "motion pictures" and let the creativity flow! It won't always be easy, but once everyone's in "toon" together, who knows what might happen!"

Those centuries-old curses are still a problem though. As for “earth’s savior” himself, Ataru is still skirt-chasing as always—even after a few thousand love-zaps from Lum.
