Or worst of all, done in by their own bombastic bumbles. On top of all that, the insatiable, sexy investigator Angelica Burns and her plucky assistant Chelsea have a new weapon in their arsenal – the disembodied head of Marciano's daughter May. Add a flurry of threats and insults, a cunning kidnapping and a bullet in Mister's back, and you've just scratched the surface of this action-packed, anything-goes, frantically fun volume of Coyote Ragtime Show!

Three Girls Protect Japan from Supernatural Threats and Talking Cats

ADV is proud to bring you the second exciting volume of Moeyo Ken TV, which is slated to arrive at store shelves on March 27!

Produced by Marvelous Entertainment (Air Gear, School Rumble) with original character sketches by Rumiko Takahashi (the original creator of the Inu Yasha series), Moeyo Ken TV is the story of three daughters of the Shinsengumi who decide to follow in their fathers footsteps to protect Japan. Unfortunately for the girls, most of the threats they face are of the paranormal variety (not to mention hilarious!)

And nothing stands a chance when these dangerous damsels dance! Putting their demon-fighting prowess to work, they level buildings and wreak havoc all through Kyoto. If only their minds were as much on their work as it is on the dual difficulties of an escalating damage debt and the impending threat of losing their den-mother's son to the far-away lure of Shanghai! Can the team fly straight long enough to honor the names of their samurai fathers? Or will their bumbling bring this noble era to an end? Find out in this action-packed, zany second volume of Moeyo Ken TV!
