CENTRAL PARK MEDIA'S THREE TIERED FOURTH QUARTER PROMOTION DELIVERS GREAT DEALS ON SINGLE ANIME DVDS AND BOXSETS

New York, NY (August 5, 2004) – Central Park Media announced its best deal ever! This tremendous three-tiered program for the fourth quarter combines three powerful elements – cool anime titles, great value, and super savings, which are sure to drive consumers to their favorite retailers.

The first tier of this program centers on DVD box sets. Consumers who purchase specially marked DVD box sets of Black Jack and Shootfighter Tekken at $49.99 SRP each, Now and Then, Here and There at $69.99 SRP and the Creator Spotlight: Yoshiaki Kawajiri DVD brick pack, which includes: Demon City Shinjuku, A Wind Named Amnesia, Birdy the Mighty: Double Trouble, and Birdy the Mighty: Final Force at $39.99 SRP will be able to choose a free DVD from a pre-determined list of 12 titles. This list of free DVDs includes some of the best and most memorable anime series produced by Central Park Media to date and has a suggested retail value ranging from $9.99 to $29.99 SRP each.

The second tier centers on the incredibly popular anime and manga series The World of Narue. Consumers who purchase The World of Narue DVD Collection/Book 1 Brick Pack for $79.99 SRP will receive the first graphic novel for this series packaged with the box set, as well as a coupon redeemable for a free copy of The World of Narue Book 2, increasing the value of this DVD box/book set to $99.99 without increasing the SRP!

The final tier of this program gives consumers the opportunity to own some of Central Park Media's best-selling and most popular anime titles at a great low price. The supernatural action/adventure Nightwalker and the fantasy/action adventure The Heroic Legend of Arslan will each be available as special double disc releases with English audio tracks. These value-versions priced at $19.99 SRP each will give consumers many hours of programming at an unbelievable price. Collector's versions for Nightwalker and The Heroic Legend of Arslan are still available for consumers wanting English and Japanese audio tracks, English subtitles, and DVD bonus features.

Complementing and completing the third tier are 5 single disc DVDs from some of the best-known creators of Japanese animation priced at $9.99 SRP each. The action/adventure Mask of Zeguy and the erotic Tales of Seduction by U-Jin are just a couple of great titles that will be reduced to this extremely attractive price point.
