Cosplay Complex in June



HOUSTON, April 12, 2004—ADV Films, the #1 producer-distributor of anime in the U.S., today announced a June 1, 2004 street date for Cosplay Complex, a three-episode anime OVA exposing (literally) the comedies and tragedies that befall a Japanese cosplay club. Inspiring comparisons to the classic anime satire Otaku No Video, Cosplay Complex hilariously parodies the art of cosplay, or dressing up as anime characters. Peppered with fairies, quick but revealing costume changes, and a peeping tom, Cosplay Complex is loaded with always funny, always sexy, anime spoofs.

The Story
Meet Chako and her friends from the Cosplay Association at East Oizuki Academy! They're the hottest new cosplay team in Japan…fresh from a winning streak of local battles, they're set to sweep the Cosplay World Series!

Yeah, right.

In reality, Chako and her fellow students are barely able to keep their club alive. Feeble club membership and no adult sponsor might be the end of their cosplay dreams before they can even start. But don't you dare underestimate this group of spunky girls! They'll survive a barrage of pervy newcomers, cosplay rivalries, costume disasters and dating mishaps in order to reach their ultimate goal of competing in the World Series. The clothing flies as the girls suit up (and strip down) for Cosplay Complex!

Cosplay Complex (SRP $24.98) is a DVD-only release, containing three complete episodes. Includes both English 5.1- and Japanese 2.0-language versions, with English subtitles. Extras include annotated production sketches; clean closing animation; original Japanese opening; a reversible cover; a full-color, fold-out poster with “My Cosplay Field Trip” article printed on the back; Cosplay Identification 101; Cosplay “Cover-up” feature; and ADV previews.
