ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES PETITE PRINCESS YUCIE: PRINCESS ACADEMY

HOUSTON, October 14, 2004— That Gainax gang is at it again, overturning anime conventions left and right in a maverick new series that ignores all the rules: Petite Princess Yucie, and it's only available from ADV Films, the #1 producer-distributor of anime in North America! Cackling with fiendish delight, ADV representatives are pleased to announce a street date of November 23, 2004 release date for Petite Princess Yucie: Princess Academy the first volume in this incredibly hot news series!

Created by Takami Akai (Japan's mega-hit Princess Maker computer game,) with supervising direction by the legendary Hideaki Anno (Neon Gensis Evangelion, Nadia,) and directed by Masahiko Otsuka (Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, Grrl Power), Petite Princess Yucie is a project so big that it required a joint venture of two of Japan's greatest animation powerhouses to realize: GAINAX (Evangelion, FLCL, MSA Abenobashi, Nadia) and AIC (Tenchi Muyo!, Bubblegum Crisis ,Dual!, BGC2040, El Hazard.) Now these two legendary groups are about to give the classical magical fantasy series a total face lift. With bizarre creatures, extraordinary characters and a basic sub-text of overcoming one's own limitations to achieve a dream, no matter what the cost, Petite Princess Yucie is a new anime classic in the making.

Meet Yucie, a girl under a spell. Yucie wants to be a Platinum Princess, and the only way to do that is to attend the Princess Academy. Like, duh! But that's not as easy as it sounds. Under the guidance of Queen Ercell and with the unwitting help of a schoolmate named Glenda (who just so happens to be a princess from the Demon World,) Yucie finds herself embarking on an epic quest to obtain the fabled Tiara of Eternity! The road ahead is full of trouble and odd jobs, but this is one future-princess who's not giving up without a fight! Join the adventure in the first exciting volume of Petite Princess Yucie: Princess Academy!

"The animation and character designs are stunning… and the writing tugs at your heartstrings…five stars." – THEM

Petite Princess Yucie: Princess Academy (SRP $29.98) is a DVD-only release with five complete episodes presented in English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles. Extras include clean opening and closing animations, production sketches, reversible cover and ADV previews.
