ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF MOEYO KEN: A CLASH FROM THE PAST

HOUSTON, January 5, 2005— The blazing samurai babes of the Mobile Shinsengumi prepare to do battle on January 11, 2005 with release of the action/adventure story Moeyo Ken: A Clash From the Past.

Created by Ouji Hiroi (Sakura Wars) and featuring character design by Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha), this exciting tale follows the adventures of the reckless female trio, the Mobile Shinsengumi, during the momentous Meiji Period, one of the most bloody and eventful eras in Japanese history. These sexy samurai sweethearts certainly have their work cut out for them as they furiously battle to protect Kyoto from evil spirits and strange supernatural phenomenon! This series is perfect for fans of historical action/adventure series such as Saiyuki, Sakura Wars and Inuyasha.

This is one thankless job, and it doesn't even pay the bills! Kondou Yuuko, Hijikata Toshie and Okita Kaoru are trying to follow in their fathers' footsteps as loyal samurai warriors in the Mobile Shinsengumi, but times sure have changed. If their enemies don't wipe them out first, this bumbling trio might just do the job themselves. Can these sword-wielding cuties rescue their reputation while saving Kyoto? Find out as the Japan of the past goes to war with the present and these battling beauties take on the ghosts, goblins, and gods of yesteryear!

Moeyo Ken: A Clash From the Past (SRP $29.98) is a DVD-only release containing four complete episodes in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 language versions with English subtitles. Extras include: reversible cover, production art, character sketches, 3D model art, clean opening and closing animation and ADV previews.
