PUNI PUNI POEMY RANKS IN TOP 10 JAPANESE ANIMATION GENRE IN NIELSEN VIDEOSCAN FOR APRIL '04


HOUSTON, May 27, 2004—ADV Films, the #1 producer-distributor of anime in the U.S., today announced that Puni Puni Poemy ranked among the top ten Japanese animation DVD titles in Nielsen VideoScan for the month of April 2004. Nielsen VideoScan collects point-of-sale data from retailers across the country.

Puni Puni Poemy (SRP $29.98) ranked #6 in the Nielsen ranking. This is the first release of the OVA tie-in to the runaway hit satire Excel Saga. In the spirit of Excel Saga, Puni Puni Poemy keeps the parody sharp, the plot wacky, and the animation vibrant, as it relates the bizarre adventures of Poemi, the daughter of Excel Saga's Nabeshin. The title reunites the dynamic and super-talented Excel Saga creative team, with production by J.C. Staff and Victor Entertainment and direction by Shinichi Watanabe.
