Steel Angel Kurumi Release Details

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Following the release announcement regarding Steel Angel Kurumi that ADV let out about 10 days ago, they have issued an official Press Release regarding the first volume of this series.

Worth noting, ADV first sent this press release out with $19.98 listed as the SRP for Steel Angel Kurumi Volume 1, this was an error on their part and they sent out a second notice to correct the mistake.

Excerpts from Press Release:

ADV Films has set a street date of May 21, 2002
for the DVD release of Angel On My Shoulder - the first exciting installment
of the highly anticipated anime series, Steel Angel Kurumi.

Steel Angel Kurumi features breathtaking animation from acclaimed studio
O.L.M. - famous for their work on the Pokemon franchise - along with an
English dub starring some of the hottest actresses in anime: Kelli Cousins
(Princess Nine), Monica Rial (Gasaraki), Hilary Haag (Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo
2040), and Kira Vincent-Davis (Martian Successor Nadesico), with a special
appearance by one of the most popular actresses in live action sci-fi,
Claudia Black (Farscape, Pitch Black).

The Story: She was the most powerful creation ever invented. Designed by a
brilliant mind, using otherworldly technology, bred for military use, the
Steel Angel's intent was as revolutionary as it was mysterious. But when a
young boy accidentally awakens the Steel Angel Kurumi, science and strategy
are thrown a curve. Now this multi-million dollar soldier is taking orders
from a boy-and other forces are not happy about it. So Kurumi and her young
master must seek out a secret lab and discover dangerous answers. Namely,
why was Kurumi created in the first place? What is her true purpose? And why
is a mysterious organization activating other beautiful, seductive, and
powerful Steel Angels to destroy her?

ADV FILMS' DVD release ($29.98 SRP) of Steel Angel Kurumi: Angel On My
Shoulder will feature the English-language version as well as the
Japanese-language version with English subtitles. DVD extras include the
behind the scenes feature Conversations with Angels, a historical background
of Tashio era Japan (1912-1926), production sketches, textless open and
close credits, and more.
