They headline with That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime The Movie: Scarlet Bond (which is out now), The Quintessential Quintuplets movie (which it out 28th April 2023).
Also out is the promising To Every You I've Loved Before and To Me, The One Who Loved You.
Plus for Gundam fans on 28th April 2023, they'll be releasing Mobile Suit Gundam Cucuruz Doan's Island.
