Broccoli Gear to release new Juvenile Orion character goods.

Los Angeles, CA (November 8, 2004) – Broccoli Gear, the merchandising division of Broccoli International, announces the release of the
Juvenile Orion character merchandise beginning in November 2004.

The immense popularity of Juvenile Orion in the North American market has sparked the creation of brand new enameled pins and cell phone accessories, each one featuring one of the five main characters from the series in a “super-deformed” style. The cell straps also feature each character's faction insignia and “Juvenile Orion” embossed in white.

Juvenile Orion is a five-volume fantasy-romance graphic novel involving a high school girl and the five young men who gather to protect her, and has been placed on Bookscan's top ten bestseller list with each volume's release.

The manga series is a spin-off of Aquarian Age, a top-selling trading card game in Japan that has spawned the creation of numerous graphic novels and anime series. A number of prominent manga artists such as CLAMP, Takada Akemi, Narumi Kakinouchi, Keiji Goto, Koge-Donbo, and Haruhiko Mikimoto have illustrated cards for the game.

The cell phone straps will be available for purchase nationwide in local comic book and anime stores as well as Anime Gamers for $7.95 each. The character pins will be available for a retail price of $4.95 each.
