LDMS: Nobody Does It Better than Mylene Hoffman in 009-1!


BRIGHTON, UK, 8th MAY 2008

LDMS, in partnership with ADV Films, are pleased to announce the final volume in the swinging sexy sci-fi thriller, 009-1. The adventures of Mylene and the team come to an end when volume three hits store shelves on 12th MAY 2008.

From legendary creator Shotaro Ishinomori (Kamen Rider, Kikaider, Gilgamesh) with help from veteran production companies TBS (Ah! My Goddess, This Ugly Yet Beautiful World) and Aniplex (Fullmetal Alchemist, Blood+) comes 009-1. The series stars Mylene Hoffman, a secret agent that Anime Insider describes as, “sophisticated, charming and disarming.”

What the Press Said:
“009-1 is a best-of-breed meld of hardcore, old guard anime with next generation eye candy. [It] shows that carefully crafted homage with a modern coat of paint can be entertaining. The secret seems to be pretty, sophisticated women, unflinching violence, and a dry sense of humor.” DVD Verdict

“A nice tribute not only to the original manga but the spy genre in general. You won't be disappointed if you like fine quality anime.” DVD Talk

“009-1 is quite the treat to watch… the stories [are] executed with a great sense of style and pacing that makes them feel fresh and engaging to watch.” Anime on DVD.com

“A swinging good time, straight out of the '60s but with a minor modern flair.” Science Fiction Weekly

“Break out the champagne and a few Sinatra albums, a copy of Dr. No, and you'll be in the right mood.” The Anime Review

The Story:
She's faced death between the sheets, been captured and tortured by the enemy, and has raised the suspicion of her superiors for not being ruthless enough. Now Mylene Hoffman faces her greatest challenge yet when she sees the faces of mutant children exploited by the Eastern Bloc for living weapons research! Can she stop the program? Will she stop the children before they cause another nuclear explosion? From the beds of the enemy, to the surface of the moon, to a daring mission to preserve the innocent and the fate of the world itself, it's the thrilling finale to 009-1!
