ADV Announces Devil Hunter Yohko, Complete Collection



HOUSTON, January 28, 2005 – Forces of evil beware! Yohko, the sweet and sexy schoolgirl/devil hunter, is back to kick serious demonic butt with the release of Devil Hunter Yohko, The Complete Collection. Look for the complete series collection to hit the streets February 8, 2005 in a brand new thinpak box set!

Mixing hilarious comedy with spine-tingling horror, Devil Hunter Yohko ventures into the world of the supernatural as a young schoolgirl battles her hormones along with the forces of evil and discovers her true calling as a slayer of devils and demons. Using the same elements that made Buffy, The Vampire Slayer a huge hit, Devil Hunter Yohko is perfect for fans of Plastic Little, Chrono Crusade, and Original Dirty Pair.

Yohko Mano's sixteenth birthday certainly has not been an occasion to celebrate. The boy she's absolutely crazy about doesn't know she exists, and it's driving her nuts! To top it all off, her loony grandmother has given her an unexpected (and unwanted) birthday present. As it turns out, Yohko is the 107th generation of a family of professional devil hunters - and she's stuck with the job whether she likes it or not! Now, all of Japan's devils, demons, and blood-letting creatures of the night have decided to eliminate Miss Mano before she has a chance to learn how to use her newly discovered powers! It's going to be a very un-sweet sixteen as Yohko's birthday turns into a demonic bloodbath and a grueling trial by hellfire!

Devil Hunter Yohko, The Complete Collection (SPR $39.98) is a DVD-only release presented on 3 DVD discs in a thinpak box set. The collection contains all 5 episodes of the series with audio in English 2.0 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitle.
