Orphen: Supernatural Powers

ADV Films is proud to announce the home video and DVD release of Orphen: Supernatural Powers, the second installment of the newest fantasy anime series from the #1 distributor of Japanese animation in North America.

Based on the popular series of Japanese fantasy novels that spawned the hit Playstation 2® video game, this second installment of Orphen will resume the breathtaking adventures of Orphen and fellow traveling companions Majic and Cleo.

The Heiress With Attitude is getting tired of traveling with sorcerer-turned-dragon hunters Orphen and Majic. So when Cleao hears about the legend of a monster near the mysterious resort at Mount Kahlna, its no surprise when she goes to check it out. But neither Cleao nor her friends are quite prepared for the truth behind the legend! Later, the group meets Fiena, a gentle girl with the magical power to heal animals-a trait that comes in handy when the forest is populated with shotgun-happy hunters. Yet the hunters arent the only dangers in this forest. For watching their every move are several pairs of glowing, yellow, angry eyes! From flora to fauna, this adventure of Orphen shows nature at its most magical!
