Top 5 Upcoming Releases
As 2015 is coming to an end, we look ahead to 2016. Last month we asked you which our upcoming releases you are most looking forward to. Here’s the results:
Is it Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon?
This anime took social media by storm earlier this year, especially Hestia’s blue ribbon. It’s a title many are looking forward to picking up when given the opportunity. Thankfully the first three volumes of both the light novel and the manga are already available in English to whet appetites while we wait for this release.
Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’
After a successful theatrical run in UK cinemas, and a slight delay to the home media release to accommodate this, fans will be able to pick up the latest Dragon Ball Z movie on DVD and Blu-ray next month. Available to preorder now, there’s a collector’s edition blu-ray, standard DVD and blu-ray, or for those that have yet to pick up Battle of the Gods, a double pack containing both films on DVD or blu-ray.
Food Wars is one of 2015’s best anime adaptations, the animation is wonderful, the cast is brilliant and we can’t wait to share it with you soon. Eight volumes of the manga are available in English from Viz.
A second season of Food Wars has recently been announced, but no time frame for its release has been given as of yet.
School-Live! was a big surprise when it started, with the major twist at the end of episode 1 causing this seemingly generic “cute girls doing cute things” school anime to appeal to those that don’t enjoy that kind of anime. Watching this weekly was an emotional roller-coaster, and being able to binge-watch it on Blu-ray next year can only make it a much more powerful experience.
Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo
After an extended wait for the latest movie in the Rebuild of Evangelion series, the Blu-ray and DVD are finally scheduled for early next year. Fans have been incredibly patient when it comes to this title, and we can’t wait to get it in your hands. If you haven’t picked up the previous films, now is a great chance to become acquainted with the series and catch up ready for the third movie.
Boruto: Naruto The Movie gets an honourable mention, after the theatrical release, and upcoming release of The Last Naruto Movie, fans will be eager to buy Boruto when it hits shelves.
