ADV issues an official Press releases for the highly anticipated Excel Saga

ADV has issued an official press release for what is one of the most anticipated releases in fandom, Excel Saga will be released on DVD in North America on June 11th.

Excerpts from Press Release:

ADV Films has set the street date of June 11, 2002 for Excel Saga 1, the first volume of the highly anticipated and outrageously bizarre anime satire.

Excel Saga is a one-of-a kind work of art that can only be described as the ultimate parody of anime. From the opening credits - a rather odd spoof of Japanese pop videos - to the ending song featuring Menchi the dog singing/barking a plaintive ballad while a human interpreter translates for viewers, nothing is sacred in the world of Excel Saga.

Key Facts: Excel Saga contains the chronically over-challenged and understaffed secret ideological organization of ACROSS (total membership: 2), whose goal is to conquer the city of F. It contains your complete daily requirements of Martian princesses, afro-wearing action heroes, mysterious governmental agencies, space butlers, deranged comic book authors, androgynous prisoners in iron masks, annoying roommates, removable moustaches and a generous supply of adorably cute aliens bent on galactic domination. Excel Saga contains one (1) emergency food supply/singing dog and one (1) Excel, the most certifiably insane teenage girl to ever walk the face of the planet.

ADV's release of Excel Saga 1 ($29.98 SRP) collects the first five episodes of the highly anticipated comedy series in the English-language, as well as the Japanese language version with English subtitles. DVD extras include A.D. Vid-notes (a great Pop-Up Video style feature that gives behind-the-scenes info and explains some of the cultural references the series presents), a Japanese video piracy warning, textless credit animation, original Japanese trailers, and ADV reviews.
