News ADV Adds Former CPM Title Darkside Blues
posted on 2009-06-03 14:08 EDT
The Right Stuf online retailer lists the former Central Park Media (CPM) anime title Darkside Blues as an August 18 release from A.D. Vision. The 1994 anime adapts a manga that author Hideyuki Kikuchi (Vampire Hunter D, Demon City Shinjuku, A Wind Named Amnesia) created with Yuuho Ashibe. In the story, a dark mystic named Darkside leads a band of freedom fighters against the tyrannical Persona Century Corporation, which rules 99% of the world.
Next month, A.D. Vision will also reissue four other CPM titles: Grave of the Fireflies, Now and Then, Here and There, The World of Narue, and MD Geist. Central Park Media filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in April after not having shipped a new anime or manga title in over a year.
