FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF FIRST VOLUME OF CYBERTEAM IN AKIHABARA: CYBERTEAM GENESIS

HOUSTON, November 1, 2004— As everyone knows, when the newest and hottest gadget hits the market, there's nothing that can stop you from getting your hands on one, no matter the cost. But what do you do when your new acquisition turns out to be a magical being with powers you would never have dreamed possible? Welcome to the first exciting and quirky volume of the toy fad craziness Cyberteam in Akihabara: Cyberteam Genesis, set to hit the streets on November 16, 2004.

Director Yoshitaka Fujimoto (Nuku Nuku Dash, Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch), Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell, Blue Seed, FLCL) and Producers Tetsuo Gensho (Sakura Wars, Orphen, You're Under Arrest) and Hiroshi Kato (Vampire Hunter D) have teamed up to create this twisted tale of a popular toy that turns out to be much more than it seems. Deriving its name from the celebrated wholesale electronics district of Tokyo, and simultaneously parodying both the Power Rangers and Pokemon merchandizing crazes with the occasional delirious side-trip into Sailor Moon-land, Cyberteam packs an awesome arsenal of animated in-jokes that's as overstuffed as its unsuspecting heroines amply filled out costumes. Don't miss the mayhem as a handful of teenage girls accidentally unleash the power of the PataPis while the most demented crew of animators since Excel Saga take liberal potshots at everything under the Rising Sun in Cyberteam in Akihabara: Cyberteam Genesis!

Like all girls, Hibari Hanakoganei covets the latest fashion in mechanical pets – a PataPi to call her own! But when a strange White Prince provides one, an equally mysterious Black Prince plots to steal the prized pet. It's PataPi Densuke to the rescue, however, transforming into a powerful Diva with astonishing battle agility and amazingly bears a striking resemblance to Hibari herself! Together with the Cyber Team, the Black Prince will certainly get a run for his money!

"…a different type of genre fusion, it's like Sailormoon meets Bubblegum Crisis!" said Animetric.com.

Cyberteam in Akihabara: Cyber Genesis (SRP $29.98) is a DVD-only release with 5 complete episodes presented in English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles. Extras include clean opening and closing animations, production sketches and ADV previews.
