ADV Announces April 5 Release of Colorful


An irreverent dose of animated Viagra!

HOUSTON, March 8, 2005 —Panty lovers everywhere are sure to be satisfied as the wacky two-hour romp of anime irreverence Colorful! hits the streets April 5, 2005! Get ready to laugh yourself silly with over 50 animated vignettes of politically incorrect, sacred cow-tipping humor that takes particular aim at the randy idiocy of the human male.

“It completely blows away any other show that has tried. It is that simple.” –

Based on Torajiro Kishi's manga of the same name and originally aired as part of the Japanese late-night television program “Wonderful,” Colorful! was directed by Ryutaro Nakamura (Sakura Wars, Kino's Journey, Serial Experiments Lain) and features the animation work of Triangle Staff (Sakura Wars, Catnapped!, Macross Plus).

Two horny college slackers and a beautiful professor, a frustrated TV reporter, a sexy track star and her tempted coach, and a high school “girl”-zilla that's the size of the Empire State building…to name a few. Colorful! contains over 50 vignettes of men, women, and the pursuit of… well, you'll just have to see. From hotties on subways and perverted cabbies, to panty-obsessed video geeks, sexy mall babes, and the furry phenomenon, Colorful! is a strange, deranged, racy and hilarious parade of perversion! (And if live action is more your style, check out the behind-the-scenes documentary that shows the twisted, demented cast and crew that bring Colorful! to vivid life!)

Colorful! (SRP $24.98) is a DVD-only release, including 16 episodes made up of over 50 vignettes in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 language versions with English subtitles. Extras include: Behind-the-Scenes documentary, clean opening and closing animations, original Japanese artwork, Colorful! trailer, actor bios and ADV Previews.
