We’ve reached the end of February and that means it’s time to look ahead for what’s coming in the way of upcoming releases!
Today the primary focus will be titles coming in April but before we actually want to begin by focusing on something coming in May that we know a lot of you will be excited about…
We mentioned at the start of the month you could expect some news to share and we weren't joking!
YOUR NAME 4K is set to arrive on 24th May 2021
Pre-orders will be launching on Friday 5th March (next week!) exclusively at our AllTheAnime.com shop and Zavvi.com
More details to follow next week, but we wanted to make this known so that you all had at least a week to plan accordingly.

Moriarty the Patriot by Ryosuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi is a manga that presents Professor James Moriarty (nemesis of Sherlock Holmes, here “William James Moriarty”) as a ruthless anti-hero battling class inequality, evil aristocrats and the British Empire itself. He does so through the medium of intricately plotted perfect crimes, all the while grinning enigmatically at the reader through his very floppy fringe.

Caroline Pover did not spend one month in Tohoku. Well, she did, but then she went back again, and again and again. Over the last decade, pandemic lockdowns excepted, she has returned to her “adopted” village of Oshika for a month or so most years, at first as a delivery woman for emergency supplies in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami, and thereafter as a reluctant but much-loved local heroine, raising over £170,000 to help rebuild the shattered community. And with little chance of going there in 2020, she spent a different kind of month, 29 days to be precise, writing up her reminiscences.

So, what happened at the Japanese box office in 2020? The critics lists and industry stats from the Motion Picture Producers Association of Japan, or Eiren, are all now in, so it’s time once more for my annual mull over the figures, trends and top titles of another year in Japanese cinema.
2020 was always going to be a weird one: a year when the film industry was beset by a host of problems due to the coronavirus pandemic. Blockbuster releases were held up, smaller titles pushed onto the small screen, planned productions put on hold or cancelled and cinemas shuttered.
[Editor update, 26/02/2021 - AllTheAnime.com pre-order launch date has been changed to 26th March. The information below has been updated to reflect that. The actual release dates mentioned remain unchanged.]
Since we first announced we would be bringing the Persona5 The Animation series to Blu-ray, many of you have been clamouring to details on when you could expect it to arrive.
This excitement was fuelled further when we released the standalone The Day Breakers OVA on Blu-ray last year.
Well, today your patience has been rewarded as we're excited to reveal what to expect from our Blu-ray release - and when you can put down your pre-order too!
