ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES MARCH 15 RELEASE OF THE FIVE STAR STORIES

The fate of a galaxy hangs in the balance!

HOUSTON, February 25, 2005- Cloak and dagger intrigue, epic tales of heroism that span the cosmos, and titanic battle robots with the power of gods...it’s all unleashed with the March 15, 2005 release of The Five Star Stories. The classic tale of chivalry is available for the first time on DVD in the U.S. in its original Japanese language version.

Based on the long-running manga by Mamoru Nagano (mecha and character design work in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and Brain Powered), Five Star Stories chronicles the endless war for dominance of the four solar systems that make up the Joker System. This epic sci-fi / fantasy OVA is perfect for fans of Robotech and RahXephon.

Across the galaxy’s four solar systems, countless kingdoms vie for ascendancy with mortar headds, war machines of godlike capacities. Only select pilots known as headdliners can exercise control over these titans, and then only with the aid of the Fatima, beautiful female androids created to serve their masters without question. But in the secretive confines of his lab, the skilled craftsman Duke Ballanche works to subvert the oppressive system under which Fatima are pressed into service. His latest creations possess two volatile new features: emotion and free will. The fate that lies before them will change the course of history forever.

The Five Star Stories (SRP $29.98 DVD) is a DVD-only release, including a 70-minute feature film presented in Japanese 2.0 audio with English subtitles. Extras include: original Japanese promo, Japanese staff profiles and ADV Previews.
