EUREKA SEVEN DVD TO BE RELEASED WITH MANGA AND SOUNDTRACK CD


January 17, 2006 (Cypress, Ca) – Bandai Entertainment, INC., a member of the “Eureka Project” (which includes Studio Bones, Bandai, Bandai Visual, and Hakuhodo) announce today Vol. 1 of the Eureka Seven DVD will be released April 25th with the ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK and the first volume of the MANGA by artists Jinsei Kataoka and Kazuma Kondou, originally published in Japan by Kadokawa publishing.

Eureka Seven, produced by Studio Bones, who created smash hits like Cowboy Bebop and Fullmetal Alchemist, and for the first time served as series co-investor, gathered together the creative talent: Writer Dai Sato, story supervisor for the Cowboy Bebop TV series and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Director Tomoki Kyoda, who directed RahXephon-the movie, Mecha Designer Shoji Kawamori, famous for Macross, (Escaflowne TV series) and Character designer Kenichi Yoshida from Princess Mononoke. The series focuses on Renton, a young boy in a world where “lifting” (an extreme form of hoverboarding) is common. Renton's life is changed forever by a mysterious and beautiful young girl named Eureka.

In addition to the DVD release set for April 25th, Bandai Entertainment, INC. has plans to release two MANGA series, a four volume adaptation of the series storyline and a two volume series based on the Eureka Seven Video Game prequel story as well as a stand alone soundtrack. There are also plans in the works to broadcast the series on a premier TV network.

“We would like more and more people to watch this series, so we are planning a free streaming of Episode 1 to be done simultaneously with the TV broadcast,” said Bandai Entertainment President and CEO Ken Iyadomi. Adds President of Bones and Producer of the series, Masahiko Minami, “Koukyou Shihen Eureka Seven” is a Bones original production. At 50 episodes it is an extensive series jam-packed with all the most appealing elements of the animation genre. The exhilarating mecha action soars through the skies and at the same time a touching human drama unfolds. I would like everyone on Earth to watch the love story of Renton and Eureka and cheer them on to the end.”
