Excel Saga in May, 801 T.T.S. Airbats and much more in the summer. Strong reason to believe that ADV has Noir

David Williams of ADV has posted teh following on Anime on DVD's forum:

Volume 1 of Excel Saga shall be unleased upon the world on 6/11/2002. We've snuck 5 episodes onto this DVD in both English and Japanese with English subtitles. To further improve our chances of success we've added such extras as ADV Vid-Notes, Clean Open/Close, Japanese Open/Close, Japanese Video Piracy Warning, Original Japanese Trailers, Production Sketches. All members will also find the own ACROSS ID card inserted along with their DVD package. SRP (i.e. ACROSS membership dues) is $29.98.


On the cover of AVD's latest print Catalog, below a picture of Kurumi, and next to an image of Kenshin there is an image of the Girls from Noir. The same as a licencing announcement? Not quite, but close.
