ADV UK Release New DVD Sampler - Bento Box

Date: Wednesday 20th September 2006 [15:25] | Posted By: Joe

The nice folks from ADV Films UK have sent us the details of their lastest DVD release. Unlike the usual monthly release, they'll be releasing a DVD with selected episodes to sample. They're marketing it as a taster DVD, or to give it a more Japanese theme a Bento Box. The disc will have 4 episodes on a single DVD, retailing at a very reasonable £5.99, considering a normal anime DVD with 4 episodes on would retail for more than twice the price. It's due for release on 16th October 2006.

The DVD will contain:

- Area 88 - Episode 1
- Gilgamesh - Episode 6
- Get Backers - Episode 9
- Cromartie High School - Episode 9

This should prove a great way of sampling episodes, after all, splashing out £6 to find out if you like a selection of different series is a lot better than paying for a whole disc with the same series on and finding it's not your thing.
Full Story
Press release as follows:

ADV OFFER YOU THE BENTO BOX: 4 ANIME ON 1 DVD!

FULL OF SUPER YUMMY ANIME GOODNESS - YOURS TO OWN ON 16th OCTOBER 2006

LONDON, UK, 20TH SEPTEMBER 2006

ADV Films, the leading producer-distributor of anime in the U.K., bring you on the 16th October 2006 a new concept in ‘taster’ discs - ADV’s Anime Bento Box! 4 courses of pure anime goodness, all for the incredibly low RRP of £5.99! That’s a third of the full RRP for a regular volume of anime - making it more of a ‘tasty’ disc, we think! The cheapest way to boost your anime collection today!

What’s in your Bento Box:

Area 88
Top Gun goes anime! Mercenary pilots battle in the Middle East for cash bounties - but everyone’s past catches up with them sooner or later... From the classic manga.

"...superb animation and some truly spectacular aerial sequences." Film Threat

Gilgamesh
"Intriguing ... mysterious... a slow-burner" SFX Magazine
"A deliciously mature mystery thriller." NEO Magazine

Cromartie High School
Idiot delinquents, a robot with an identity crisis, a snorting gorilla, a rock star poser and alien alumni - this is one school special measures can’t save! From the hit manga.

"As mad as a box of frogs on LSD. It's also absolutely hilarious ..." SFX Magazine

Get Backers
Ban & Ginji - street-cool, super-powered, always broke! - will "get back" anything and everything gone missing - for a price! From the hit manga.

"Get Backers is like a cool buddy cop show without all the ancillary baggage...plus super powers." PLAY Magazine (US)
