Releases of the Week: Start your life in another world with Re:ZERO


Sounds like a good plan

It's time to welcome a big release as Re:ZERO: Starting Life in Another World came out in North America on home video. Since it was one of my favorite shows of 2016, this news made my day. 

One of the things I enjoyed about it was how the main character, Subaru, was an otaku who learned how to deal with reality when he would get hit with a bad situation. No matter how bad things got, you couldn't help but to root for him to find the way to save the ones he adores. It's worth noting that he's voiced by Sean Chiplock in the dub, which is a great opportunity for the guy who voiced Rean in Trails of Cold Steel and Revali in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Before I accidentally turn this into a Re:Zero appreciation post, another volume of Golden Kamuy came out. I'm not too familiar with it, but I remember hearing good things about it from Japanator Contributor Christian Chiok. We also have another Dragon Ball Super set in the mix, which covers the "Future Trunks Saga."

For a small release week, I'm impressed with the amount of good stuff that launched.
