ADV Announces April 24 Release of Nerima Daikon Brothers: Daikon Field of Dreams




“Fun Songs, Fun Characters, Fun Show.” – Anime News Network

HOUSTON, February 26, 2007 —ADV Films, the number one producer-distributor of anime outside of Japan, is pleased to bring you the final volume of Nerima Daikon Brothers, a title that has otaku and critics alike marching to the beat of a different daikon. Join the band on their final tour when volume three arrives on April 24!

Some know him as Shinichi Wantanabe, but everyone else knows him as the loveable Nabeshin, the director behind the wacky hit anime series Excel Saga! Nabeshin is back in action with his newest creation, Nerima Daikon Brothers, a musical masterpiece that might just be the most ambitious anime dub of all time! Take a seat and let your jaw drop to the floor as these three band-mates get themselves into more trouble then a hungry panda in a daikon field!

Synopsis: Could it be?! Could the Nerima Daikon Brothers actually make a deal that will give them their very own concert dome?! Could baseball, apple pie, and blues music actually come together to make the daikon field a thing of the past?!!! Pick up volume three of Nerima Daikon Brothers (right now!), and pop it in your DVD player to answer these and other burning questions such as: What's wrong with Mako's face? Why is she so interested in plastic surgery? Who is this Yukel Hakushon fellow? Is he really a 'Thriller'? Is there a Pandaikon pandemic? Can Hideki, Ichiro, Mako, Yukika, Pandaikon, and all the rest sing ever-more hilarious songs in their quest for justice, peace, and wheelbarrows full of money? This is it folks, the last volume of Nerima Daikon Brothers. No collection of hilarious, fast-paced, song-filled anime is complete without it! Whaddaya waitin' for?! (We're making absolutely no mention on this volume of the bushel-full of hot chicks.)
