Spring is here and it’s a big month for many entertainments. A new anime season begins this month with My Hero Academia season 5 starting at the end of March and carrying over. Returning shows such as Fruit Basket, How to Not Summon a Demon Lord, and Kingdom make a return. After last year’s announcement at Anime Expo, The World Ends With You anime series begins this month too, a Funimation exclusive that will hopefully carry over to Hulu subscribers.

For video game releases, MLB The Show kicks off for both the PlayStation and Xbox consoles. NieR Replicant, the prequel to the popular NieR Automata releases later half of April. Other titles such as Trails of Cold Steel IV, SaGa Frontier Remastered, Atelier Mysterious Trilogy Deluxe Pack, and Judgement ported over to current consoles. Let’s not forget about the new Pokemon Snap, a photoshoot game makes its second entry since 1999.

Movies and tv series making some waves with Mortal Kombat, The Mitchells vs. the Machines, and highly anticipated anime movie, Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train.
