Manga Entertainment Announces Q4 2020 Releases Including Arifureta, Dr Stone, Golden Kamuy and The Quintessential Quintuplets

Although COVID-19 may be effecting the release of some anime titles in the UK, as all three seasons of Bungo Stray Dogs have been pushed back until September, it doesn’t stop Manga Entertainment UK from announcing a slew of new titles for UK audiences later this year. In this case anime fans can expect titles such as Arifureta, Dr Stone, Golden Kamuy and The Quintessential Quintuplets on Blu-Ray.

New titles:

Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest: Hajime Nagumo and his high school class are suddenly summoned to a fantastical land as heroes. But while most of his classmates have powerful stats and abilities, Hajime does not. Underappreciated and unprepared, he tumbles into the depths of a monster-infested dungeon where voracity and sacrifice are his only options. To thrive in this savage world, he’ll have no choice but to welcome the abyss.

Cautious Hero: The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious: In the world of Gaeabrande, Goddess Ristarte is tasked with summoning a hero to save her world. The hero, Seiya Ryuuguuin, is an OVERLY cautious hero who’s obsessed with muscle training and buying armor before setting out to deal with low level creatures. It’s simply one overly cautious mission at-a-time for this invincible hero!

Dr. Stone: Modern society is lost when a mysterious light turns humanity to stone. Thousands of years pass and high schoolers Senku and Taiju awaken in an overgrown version of the world they once knew. With Senku as the brains and Taiju as the brawn, they’re determined to revive the petrified masses and rebuild civilization—but of those they’ve rescued, Tsukasa will rock their plans.

Golden Kamuy: The high-stakes search for gold continues in the harsh wilderness of Hokkaido! More and more people seek the treasure map, and the race to find its living pieces is brutal as all get-out. War veteran Sugimoto and his guide to the wilds, Asirpa, are hot on the trail, and as long as they stick together through thick and thin—chitatap and miso—they’ve got a shot at finding that gold.

Kemono Michi: Rise Up: 3,2,1…RUMBLE! Genzo, Japan’s number one animal-loving pro-wrestler, gets transported to another world where magical beasts run rampant. In order to save the kingdom, the princess asks him to rid the world of the beasts, but he refuses and wants to save them instead! Genzo opens a pet shop for his new beast friends, but he gets too attached to them and is unable to sell them which leads to constant financial problems for his new shop! Join Genzo and his cute demi-human employees as they find loving homes for the many beasts of the kingdom!

The Quintessential Quintuplets: Futaro Uesugi is broke and desperate to pay off his family’s debt, so he’s about to take on five times the work—by tutoring a set of quintuplets! These sisters are wealthy and beautiful, but lazy when it comes to studying. If Futaro can’t help them pass high school, he can kiss his dreams of a full stomach and fuller wallet goodbye! With five different personalities he’s got quintuple the trouble.
