AN Entertainment is proud to announce that the debut DVD volume of the Miami Guns anime series will hit retail store shelves throughout North America on June 22, 2004. Anticipated to be one of the year's breakout surprise hits, Miami Guns is a wild, wacky comedy in the vein of the best selling anime title Excel Saga. Fast paced, sexy, non-stop action and comedy tailored toward anime fans, yet still easily accessible and entertaining for viewers uninitiated into anime culture, are sure to distinguish Miami Guns as one of 2004's most talked about "must see" series!


Based on a fan favorite four volume manga series by Takeaki Momose, the artist behind the RahXephon manga, the 13 episode Miami Guns TV series tells the story of spoiled rich girl Yao Sakurakouji who decides to join the Miami police force to enjoy car chases, gunfights and wanton destruction. The psychotic and not-too-bright Yao is partnered with Lu Amano, the soft-spoken and sharp-tongued daughter of the police chief. Together the dirty duo clean up the streets of Miami and take on a mysterious crime syndicate known only as "The Organization."

Slapstick comedy, risque action, and outrageous parody ensue. The first Miami Guns DVD alone features side-splitting parodies of pop culture icons including Jean Reno's Leon the Professional, Detective Conan, Speed Racer, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Wacky Races, and a world famous extended homage to the hit anime series Initial D. Director Yoshitaka Koyama, the director behind the popular Rune Soldier anime TV series, pulls out all the stops for Miami Guns, resulting in the craziest, most bizarre anime to hit American shores since the blockbuster hit FLCL.


The first of four Miami Guns DVDs to be released by AN Entertainment will contain four full length bilingual episodes, copious translation notes, and extensive bonus features including character guides, production sketches, a look behind the scenes of the English dubbing, and even original Japanese TV spots and trailers. The English language adaptation of Miami Guns is provided by Phoenix Post Sound, the internationally recognized and award winning dubbing studio formerly known as Coastal Carolina Studios. The Miami Guns Japanese language version will retain the original voice performances of Megumi Toyoguchi (Chobits, .hack//SIGN, Vandread), Yukari Tamura (Please Teacher!, Galaxy Angel), Mitsuru Ogata (Lupin the 3rd, Millennium Actress, Burn Up W, Pokémon), and Rie Tanaka (Wild Arms, Steel Angel Kurumi, Chobits) and offer optional English subtitles, translated with the extensive accuracy and detail that AN Entertainment translations are noted for.
