Power Rangers Dino Charge: Rise – I have no idea about this volume other than it says it’s the “Spooktacular Halloween Edition” of Power Rangers. Not Rated.
Monster High: Welcome to Monster High – The latest Monster High movie, though one to probably skip. Having run out of other ideas, Welcome to Monster High is a total retcon of the series up to this point and totally ruins all the story according to multiple reviews from Amazon. Not Rated.
Howard Lovecraft And The Frozen Kingdom – A kids movie based on the series of graphic novels about Howard Lovecraft. Despite it being for kids, the stories are based on the stories of HP Lovecraft.

The recovery of various separated body parts of dead emperor continues but with more powerful foes racing to discover the other missing body parts and the magic they contain. Not Rated.
Rainy Cocoa: Season One & Two – A strange release this week with a sub only release from Funimation. Rainy Cocoa is actually based on a digital manga series that is available in English and Japanese and apparently even comes with bilingual audio as well. That makes this sub release a little stranger but considering how small the series is I can understand it. A college boy with a girlish face takes a part time job at a cafe and has comedic encounters with his other male coworkers. Not Rated.
This is a very short form series so enjoy the actual first episode!
These games came out as well. They are just the latest versions of both franchises.
