Get Anime Movies, TV Shows Up To 70% Off, Including Dragon Ball Z And More

It’s Anime Month at the Microsoft Store once again, which means you can save up to 70% on popular anime films and TV shows that you can watch on Xbox One or PC. The sale is going on all month long, and if you spend at least $40 on any anime in the sale, you’ll get 4,000 MS Rewards points. That comes out to about $4, but when you’re getting it on top of steep discounts, who’s complaining?

The sale notably includes all seasons of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, with both English and Japanese audio available for the latter. If you’re just getting into one of these shows, there’s a nice incentive for just buying the first season. If you buy season 1 of Dragon Ball Z ($14) or Dragon Ball Super ($8), you’ll get the second season for free. This freebie offer is only available until July 6.

While the selection for Microsoft’s latest anime sale isn’t as great as we’ve seen in previous sales, there are still some gems here worth snagging if you’re looking for new anime to watch. The movie selection includes A Silent Voice, a love story about a woman who is deaf, for $7, and Penguin Highway, a sci-fi story that begins with penguins appearing everywhere inexplicably, for $6 (you can also rent it for $2). Several Naruto movies are also up for grabs, including Road to Ninja ($9) and Naruto Shippuden: The Movie ($8). On the TV side of things, you can grab Death Note: The Complete Series on sale for $30 (normally $50), along with seasons of Inuyasha, Sailor Moon, and Bleach for steep discounts.

You can check out more of our picks below and see the full sale at the Microsoft Store. Of course, if you’re a regular anime watcher, you might already be subscribed to streaming services that include some of these movies or shows, so it’s worth checking out what you can already stream before purchasing. If you’re considering subscribing to one but not sure which service is right for you, we have a handy guide to the best anime streaming services, including Funimation, Crunchyroll, and more.

Disco Elysium TV series in the works with Sonic the Hedgehog movie producer

Disco Elysium could be heading to the small screen, according to a report from Variety. The 2019 RPG takes place in a fictional, semi-fantastic world, and players take control of an amnesic veteran detective with a penchant for causing chaos.

Studio ZA/UM, the developers of Disco Elysium, are partnering with dj2 Entertainment to create this series. These producers are best known for working on the recent Sonic the Hedgehog film. These producers also have the licenses for a variety of games, including Life is Strange, We Happy Few, Vampyr, and Sleeping Dogs, and intend to create a variety of feature film projects or shows based off these properties. So far, the only one of these games to see the light of day as an adaptation is Sonic the Hedgehog, which was relatively well-received as a family friendly romp.

It’ll be fascinating to see how Disco Elysium might translate to the small screen, as the basic premise of the game is that the protagonist is customized through a “Thought Cabinet” that holds various ideologies, perceptions, and patterns. For instance, it’s possible to specialize into being a nationalist racist, or perhaps a deeply attuned occult-sensitive mystic.

Most of the change and customization in Disco Elysium is centered on the protagonist, not the world he lives in, and how he treats his companions. However, there are some great moments that can translate to a serialized show, especially if players chose to be a total trash disaster at all times.

If you’re not willing to wait until the TV show to check out Disco Elysium, the game recently launched on the Epic Games Store. A console port for the Nintendo Switch is currently in the works.

Switch Lite

Nintendo Switch consoles are often sold out, but you can still pick up the handheld-only Switch Lite, which is perfect for portable gaming.
