Yes, I know, we're only mid-way through the first quarter of the year, yet here we are already talking about the second quarter of 2017. But hey, it's good to have something to look forward to right?

On that note, it seems we'll have plenty to look forward to from distributor Manga Entertainment for Q2 of this year, as listings at online retailer Amazon have lifted the lid on their likely release slate between April and June of this year.

So, without further ado, let's dig into that delicious Q2 line-up:

April 3rd 2017
Pokemon Movies 1-3 Collection (Blu-ray)

April 10th 2017
AKIRA (Blu-ray + Digital)
Gatchaman Crowds Insight Complete Series Collection (DVD/Blu-ray combo)

May 1st 2017
Boruto the Movie (DVD, Blu-ray)

May 8th 2017
Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? Complete Series Collection (Deluxe Edition DVD/Blu-ray combo)
Yokai Watch Complete Season 1 Collection (DVD)

May 15th 2017
Naruto Shippuden Box 28 (DVD)

May 29th 2017
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Bonds Beyond Time / Dark Side of Dimensions Twin Pack (DVD, Blu-ray)
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Dark Side of Dimensions (DVD, Blu-ray)

June 5th 2017
My Love Story!! Complete Series Collection (Deluxe Edition DVD/Blu-ray combo)

June 19th 2017
Amagi Brilliant Park Complete Series Collection (Deluxe Edition DVD/Blu-ray combo)
Hello! KINMOZA Complete Series Collection (DVD/Blu-ray combo)

There are a couple of notable things to mention here. First up is confirmation that Manga Entertainment have acquired Yokai Watch for a DVD home video release here in the UK, with season one arriving on the 8th of May.

Secondly, you'll also spot a number of Deluxe Editions on that list - before you get too excited, these aren't clones of Sentai Filmworks' Deluxe Edition releases of those titles in North America, but rather cut-down editions featuring a rigid box, set of art cards and poster. This does ensure a lower price point than other previous Collector's Editions we've seen for the likes of Parasyte and Akame ga Kill, but is a very notable step down from the gamut of physical extras bundled with the comparable release across the pond.

With all of that said, which of these releases are you looking forward to later this year?
