New Releases This Week: First Impressions

This week's new releases are all about fresh starts. In our latest film release AURA, Satou Ichiro tries to start anew in a different school in order to rid himself of what basically boils down to "chunibyo" before chunibyo was "Chunibyo". In Rail Wars!, Naoto's first day on the job as a trainee for the Railways Security Force is more than a little hectic. New beginnnings are great, and you should start with one of these titles:

He luckily manages to snag a job as a trainee for the Railways Security Force.

But when RJ, a sinister group, appears to seize control of the JNR, it’s up to him to get things back on track.
