LOS ANGELES, October 20, 2004 – Answering the call of die hard fans across the country, G4techTV is jumping into the future with three new adventure-filled anime series. Broadcast for the first time in the U.S., R.O.D-THE TV-, Gungrave and Gad Guard are part of the network's edgy late night block, Anime Unleashed. R.O.D-THE TV- and Gungrave will air throughout the month of October, Monday through Sunday, at 12:00AM ET/9:00PM PT. Action-packed episodes of Gad Guard will air every night at 12:00AM ET/9:00PM PT beginning Monday, November 8.

"Anime Unleashed is an ongoing destination for the extensive anime fan base," commented Peter Green, Senior Vice President of Programming & Production for G4techTV. "These three new titles are surrounded with buzz and excitement and by bringing them to the late night block, G4techTV is making a major commitment to the fans."

Kicking off the block, R.O.D-THE TV- follows the adventures of three papermasters with the ability to manipulate paper into wild weapons and magical objects. Gungrave is filled with revenge and redemption as a life of crime leads the main character, Brandon Heat, to a dark and uncertain future, while Gad Guard, a fast-paced series full of mecha carnage and destruction, focuses on a young boy-turned-superhero fighting injustice in a post-apocalyptic future.

G4techTV licensed all three series from Geneon Entertainment (USA) Inc. "G4techTV is the perfect home for our anime titles," says Youske Kobayashi, President and CEO of Geneon Entertainment (USA) Inc.
