FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES FULL METAL PANIC? FUMOFFU: FULL METAL PANDEMONIUM!

SPIN-OFF FROM BEST-SELLING FULL METAL PANIC! HITS STORES 16th JANUARY 2006

LONDON, UK, 2nd DECEMBER 2005 - ADV Films, the leading producer-distributor of anime in the U.K., is very pleased to announce that the first instalment of Full Metal Panic? FUMOFFU: Full Metal Pandemonium!, is locked and loaded to hit store shelves on 16th January 2006.

Full Metal Panic? FUMOFFU is only the latest face of the Full Metal franchise, which includes the original prose novel, two successful manga series, and the first hit anime series ADV Films brought to the UK in 2003. But whereas the first Full Metal Panic anime series was a sci-fi drama with bits of comedy mixed in, this new series doesn't even pretend to be serious! Featuring more explosions, more high school drama, and a batch of hilarious new characters, FUMOFFU really is a whole new Panic!

Directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto (Soul Taker, Air, Nurse Witch Komugi), Full Metal Panic? FUMOFFU reintroduces anime's favourite odd couple: the popular (if fiery) Kaname, and Sosuke, the teenaged commando sworn to protect her - from high school? Sosuke has a little trouble telling friend from foe, but you can count on Kaname to set him straight! FUMOFFU features loads of slapstick humour, leavened by romantic misunderstandings and the occasional round of gunfire.

The Story:
Sousuke and Kaname are back in action! And this time, the battleground is the school ground! High-yield explosives and hilarity come together with a bang, as the sombre soldier and his unwitting target brave everything from lovesick "terrorists" to an unforgiving teacher who is bent on revenge. A day at the beach turns sour after Sousuke misses the point one too many times (and even fails to notice Kaname's new bikini). Then, when Kaname is suddenly kidnapped, it's up to our dense hero to devise a daring rescue!

Full Metal Panic? FUMOFFU: Full Metal Pandemonium! (RRP 19.99) is a DVD-only release, including three episodes in English 5.1- and Japanese 2.0-language, with English subtitles. Extras include: "The Mysteries of FUMOFFU"; clean opening and closing animations; original Japanese TV spots; character artwork; Bonta-kun Board Game insert; and ADV Previews.

Full Metal Panic? FUMOFFU: Full Metal Pandemonium!
Running Time: 75m
BBFC Classification: 12
Street Date: 16/01/06
Cat#: DFMF-001
Format: DVD
RRP: 19.99


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE FOR PEACEMAKER: GUNNING FOR TROUBLE

BLOODY SAMURAI ACTION WITH THE SHINSENGUMI SLICES ITS WAY INTO STORES 16th JANUARY 2006

LONDON, UK, 2nd DECEMBER 2005 - ADV Films, the leading producer-distributor of anime in the U.K., today formally announced a 16th January 2006 street date for Peacemaker: Gunning For Trouble, a masterpiece by GONZO Digimation (Chrono Crusade, Hellsing, Full Metal Panic). Adapted from the popular manga, Peacemaker Kurogane, and declared by fans to hold the record of "most amount of blood from one sword slash," Peacemaker is set in 19th century Japan at the beginning of the Meiji period. Fans of samurai action and intrigue can expect a mix of merciless action and hilarious comedy, while world cinema fans will know, after seeing Gohatto and When The Last Sword Is Drawn (two very different looks at the legendary Shinsengumi), that tragedy must loom further down the road.

The Story:
Strange winds are blowing through Kyoto. A boisterous man sporting a gun, a cowboy hat, and a vocabulary full of foreign phrases breezes into town. Meanwhile, rumors are afoot about a fallen lord, a powerful mystic and their chaotic game that could threaten the capital. But trouble also comes in other guises. Seeing Tetsu falling farther into depression, Yamanami and Heisuke take it upon themselves to give him a vacation and an education that the young boy will not soon forget!

Peacemaker: Gunning For Trouble (RRP 19.99) is a DVD-only release, including four episodes in English 5.1- and Japanese 2.0-language, with English subtitles. Extras include: clean open and close animation; production sketches; commentary with ADV voice actors; Character Collection 2; original Japanese DVD spots, Commentary with Vic Mignogna (Tatsunosuke) & David Born (Ryoma), reversible cover, production foldout insert; and ADV Previews.

Peacemaker: Gunning For Trouble
Running Time: 100m
BBFC Classification: 12
Street Date: 16/01/06
Cat#: DPCM-003
Format: DVD
RRP: 19.99


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES SIXTH VOLUME OF ACTION-HORROR EXTRAVAGANZA CHRONO CRUSADE

VOLUME SIX IN POPULAR SERIES FROM HELLSING CREATORS OUT 16th JANUARY 2006

LONDON, UK, 2nd DECEMBER 2005 - ADV Films, the leading producer-distributor of anime in the U.K., today formally announced a 16th January 2006 street date for the DVD release of Chrono Crusade: Devil's Advocate, the sixth volume in the unique and thrilling new anime series that merges spectacular action with graphic horror.

Based on the hit graphic novel series created by Daisuke Moriyama, available in specialist stores from ADV Manga, Chrono Crusade already had a huge fan following, affectionately known as "Nuns With Guns" by the online community. An "A" list of production talent, including heavy hitter GONZO (Hellsing, Last Exile, Full Metal Panic!), stepped in to make the animated version, and, to compliment this potent list of talent, ADV Films' DVD release contains numerous bonus features, as well as both the original Japanese version and an all new 5.1 English language version produced by top-ranked dubbing studio ISM.

The Story:
As the forces of darkness continue their war against mankind, the depth to which the human soul can be corrupted becomes the catalyst for a nightmarish series of events. The horns of a devil take root in a child of God, a Devil's bargain is joined and Aion's monstrous plot to conquer Heaven itself advances one step closer to fruition.

Chrono Crusade volume 6: Devil's Advocate (RRP 19.99) is a DVD-only release, including three complete episodes in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 language versions, with English subtitles. Extras include: unused on-air opening for episode 21, clean opening/closing animation, production sketches, Azmaria's Extras Classes, character and settings information, and ADV previews.
