No Bank Holiday this week unfortunately but there is a good helping of new anime, manga and game release to keep you busy!

Four anime releases this week and we begin with Fairy Tail Part 14 on DVD from Funimation. All the Anime fill out the week with Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam Part 2 on Blu-ray, Outlaw Star as a standard edition Blu-ray and Your Lie in April Part 2 which comes as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and standard edition DVD.

A modest selection of manga releases once again with only a handful of titles coming to retail including Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Legend of Piko Piko Middle School Student, Genshiken: Second Season, In/Spectre, Interviews With Monster Girls and My Neighbour Seki.
