It’s almost April, but we know that you’re no fools… you’re here for pre-order news.
With the in mind, it would be rude of us not to deliver, so let’s talk through what new titles you can grab in pre-order form over the coming month… although not before we remind you about the AllTheAnime.com Easter sale, which runs from the 11th-19th April – whether it’s discounts on Collector’s Editions, kick-starting your anime collection with a mystery box (or two!), or our beloved Buy One Get One Free deals, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone.
Can you say no to our mascot when he’s wearing bunny ears? No, no you cannot.
Anyway, back to the pre-orders now, and what brand-new products you can expect to find this April, once we’ve offered up a quick list of what products are hitting retail shelves over the course of the month.

For starters, there’s the Perfect Blue Deluxe Audiophile Edition vinyl from our great friends over at Tiger Lab – we expect to be opening orders for our own coloured variant of this title in late April, so we’ll share more details on exactly what that looks like and when you’ll be able to pick up a copy as soon as we have news.
We also have one more massive home video release coming up that will be music to your ears – we’re close to finalising all of the details so that we can share them with you over the next week or two, with pre-orders opening at the end of the month.
