ADV ANNOUNCES MARCH 6 RELEASES



HOUSTON, January 5, 2007 —ADV Films, the number one producer-distributor of anime outside of Japan, is pleased to bring you two exciting titles scheduled to arrive in stores on March 6, including the third volume of Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor and the final volume of the second season of UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie.





GUYVER: THE BIOBOOSTED ARMOR

THE LOST NUMBER COMMANDOS



“A Clear Cut, Unambiguous, Smash-Mouth Power Fantasy.” – Ain't It Cool News



ADV Films is proud to announce the arrival of the third exciting volume of Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor. The series kicks into high gear when volume three arrives on March 6!



The Guyver has been a cult-classic for over 20 years, spawning over 150 manga chapters, two live-action movies, an OVA, and a short series. Now, Director Katsuhito Akiyama (Bubblegum Crisis) breathes new life into the dark masterpiece, treating us to the most complete and captivating story to date.



Synopsis: The Japan Branch has fallen, and Guyver II has been utterly destroyed. Chronos is far from finished. Calling in the deadly “Lost Number Commandos”, Guyot uses Makishima's estate as a temporary base and hatches a plot to tear apart Sho's life in any way possible. Setting the city aflame, Sho's home is burned to the ground as his father, Tetsuro and Mizuki are taken captive. Now Sho must infiltrate Relic's POINT, an immense Chronos base where The Guyver units were discovered and fearsome new Zoanoids are mass-produced. To rescue his friends and family, he is forced to team up with The Guyver III and a mysterious gun-toting reporter. Standing before them is a team of five elite Hyper-Zoanoids constructed by Chronos' top scientist. This new breed of monster has the strength to absorb The Guyver's defenses, and may prove too much for the trio of heroes.



Guyver: The Lost Number Commandos (SRP $29.98 DVD) is an anamorphic DVD-only release including four episodes, presented in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles. Extras include manga to anime comparisons for all four episodes, production sketches, plus clean opening animation, clean closing animation and previews of upcoming ADV Films releases.
