ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES JANUARY 11 RELEASE DATES

HOUSTON, January 5, 2005— ADV Films, the #1 producer-distributor of anime in the U.S, is pleased to announce a January 11, 2005 street date for three additional titles in their wide assortment of anime hits.


BURN UP!

When the crime fighting babes of Burn Up! are on the case, things are sure to heat up. Watch out for these hot vixens as they wage war on crime in their skin-tight battle armor with the January 11, 2005 release of the original anime classic that started the spectacular Burn Up! franchise.

Produced by AIC (Bubblegum Crisis 2040, AD Police), this action packed firearm free-for-all features the well-armed (and well-endowed) police babe trio who make up Tokyo's premiere crime fighting force. This 50-minute feature is the forerunner for the hit series Burn Up Excess and Burn Up W and is perfect for fans of AD Police, Dirty Pair and Bubblegum Crisis.

Maki, Reimi and Yuka may not look like ace crime fighters, and to tell the truth, they're not. For now, they're stuck with the tedious and degrading duty of traffic patrol. All that changes, however, when Yuka gets herself kidnapped. To save their friend and co-worker, Maki and Reimi must suit up in their high-tech, skin-tight battle armor and teach the kidnapper that when you play with fire, you're going to get burned!

Burn Up! (SRP $24.98 DVD) is a DVD-only release containing a 50-minute feature presented in both English 2.0 and Japanese 2.0 language versions with English subtitles.

CHRONO CRUSADE: THE WORLD, THE FLESH & THE DEVIL, GOSPEL 3

A new evil has surfaced to wreak havoc on mankind and only the Order of the Magdalene stands a chance of stopping this new demonic force. Can the world be saved from the clutches of evil? Demons, devils and wrong doers don't stand a chance when Rosette and Chrono return January 11, 2005 in Chrono Crusade: The World, the Flesh & the Devil, Gospel 3.

ADV Manga's release of Chrono Crusade already had a huge fan following even before an “A” list of production talent, including heavy hitter GONZO (Full Metal Panic!, Hellsing), stepped in to make the animated version. Adding to that potent list of talent, ADV Films' DVD release will contain numerous bonus features and both the original Japanese version and an all new 5.1 English language version produced by top-ranked dubbing studio ISM.

As the forces of darkness continue their war against mankind, the depth to which the human soul can be corrupted becomes the catalyst for a nightmarish series of events. The horns of a devil take root in a child of God, a Devil's bargain is joined and AiON's monstrous plot to conquer Heaven itself advances one step closer to fruition.

Limited Collector's Edition Available!

The first volume of Chrono Crusade is also available as a Collector's Edition, which includes the Gospel 1: A Plague of Demons DVD and an attractive custom series art box to house the entire series (SRP $39.98).

Chrono Crusade: The World, the Flesh & the Devil, Gospel 3 (SRP $29.98 DVD) is a DVD-only release, including four complete episodes in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 language versions, with English subtitles. Extras include: reversible cover, clean opening and closing animation, production sketches, Azmaria's Extras Classes video, episode commentary, background info for characters and setting, Chrono Crusade slang, and ADV previews.

THE SUPER MILK-CHAN SHOW: MILK & KOOKIES, VOLUME 4

Haven't had enough Milk? No need to despair! ADV Films has set a January 11, 2005 street date for the DVD release of the final crazed hilarity that is The Super Milk-chan Show: Milk & Kookies, Volume 4.

Taking cable TV by storm on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, Milk isn't done with you quite yet. Join the adorably cute and astonishingly crude Milk on another crazy rollercoaster of fun with her newest DVD Milk & Kookies. The fowl-mouthed, bad tempered not-so-super hero is ready to “save” the world once again with her partners in crime, while trying to thwart the eviction plans of her very persistent (and very annoyed) landlord. Mixed with a smattering of live-action vignettes and wacked out animation, this show is definitely not wholesome, but it's certainly good for you!

With animation production by Studio Pierrot (GTO and Saiyuki), The Super Milk-chan Show: Cryin' Over Spilled Milk includes both the brand new American version as well as the original “Vintage Milk” Japanese version in a two-disc set perfect for fans of South Park.

Things are getting a little…kooky. First, Milk and her team go on a globe-trotting trek to stop a murderous bear. Then, they get sucked into a Satanic Time warp. And finally, we get a revealing look into Milk and her friends' deepest, darkest dreams.
