Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “Between the re-releases of Woman Called Fujiko Mine and Cyber City Oedo 808, plus Submarine Super 99 coming out, this is a really good week for anime. Otherwise, if you’ve got a 4K player, Perfect Planet might be worth picking up – Planet Earth was a solid showcase for Blu-Ray, I can imagine this being the same for 4K UHD.” Blaine says, “I would go with Wonder Woman 1984, despite that fact that it isn’t as good as the original.”
