ADV ANNOUNCES NOVEMBER 8 RELEASES



HOUSTON, September 27, 2005—ADV Films, the number one producer-distributor of anime in North America, is pleased to announce three exciting new titles set to hit the streets on November 8: the fourth volume of E’s Otherwise, the Original Dirty Pair Movie Box, and the Eden's Bowy Complete Collection.





E’s Otherwise: SUFFER THE CHILDREN



Heads Spin, Explode In Sci-Fi Thriller



ADV presents the fourth volume in the fan-favorite sci-fi series, E’s Otherwise: Suffer the Children, hitting stores November 8. "E’s Otherwise takes some of the best elements from science fiction and superhero tales and merges them into a very fine and captivating presentation." (Underland Online)



A psychically charged, high-energy adventure focused around the future of human evolution and its possible consequences, E’s Otherwise is based on the hit comic series that original appeared in G Fantasy Monthly. The spectacular, state of the art animation was directed by Masami Shimoda (Macross 7, Saber Marionette J) and produced by Studio Pierrot (Saiyuki, Naruto).



Synopsis: When Kai vanishes before Asuka's very eyes, he finds himself in a strange sanctuary filled with psychics very much like himself—psychics being used and manipulated by powerful players. But these gifted mutants are different. Why? Because these psychics are children. Small children capable of extreme power are being restrained and trained as weapons by a corrupt Cardinal who plans on taking his own holy war to the streets. But the Cardinal is not willing to give up his children—or Kai—so easily. Meanwhile, Maxim uses Maria to get closer to Asuka. Having realized that the gentle, innocent Asuka is a psychic of incredible power, Maxim unleashes his own sadistic senses to ensnare the girl.



E’s Otherwise: Suffer the Children (SRP $29.98 DVD) is a DVD-only release including episodes 15 - 18, presented in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles. Video extras include “Actor PSI Profiles” and production sketches, plus clean opening animation, clean closing animation, and previews of upcoming ADV Films releases.
