FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES APRIL 19 RELEASE OF FULL METAL PANIC! COMPLETE COLLECTION

The Entire Hit Series in a New ThinPak Box Set

HOUSTON, March 21, 2005 -The time is now for a full metal release from ADV Films! Get ready for action, romance and a whole lot of laughs when the ThinPak Box Set of Full Metal Panic! hits stores April 19, 2005. This brand new collection includes all seven volumes of the hit show that has become one of North America’s top-selling anime series!

"Get ready for full loaded action, full-on intrigue, and full-throttle fun! Because once you get into Full Metal Panic! there's no going back!" – PLAY.com

Produced by GONZO Digimation (Chrono Crusade, Gantz, Peacemaker) and directed by Kouichi Chigara (Last Exile, Gate Keepers), Full Metal Panic! follows the (mis)adventures of top-secret super soldier Sousuke Sagara and high school hottie Kaname Chidori as they stay one step ahead of an evil terrorist organization.

With hard-hitting mecha action, zany high school hilarity, and a strange-yet-heartwarming romance, Full Metal Panic! rocked the shores of North America the first time around. Now you have a chance to get in on the full metal fun in its entirety! And for the avid anime collector out there, the brand new Thinpak disc collection will help free up that ever-so-valuable shelf real estate that all collectors crave.

The Story:
On the surface, Kaname Chidori appears to be a normal, popular high school student. The problem is, she doesn’t realize just how popular she is. Unbeknownst to her, a group of terrorists believe she possesses the special powers of "the Whispered," and they’re out to kidnap her. Enter Sousuke Sagara, a young, hotshot agent from the stealthy anti-terrorist organization Mithril. Will he be able to protect Kaname without her finding out what’s really going on? Or will he just drive her crazy as he tries to fit in as her awkward, gung-ho, war-crazed classmate?

Full Metal Panic! Complete Collection ($89.98 SRP) is a 7-disc DVD-only release with the entire 24 episode series presented in English 5.1, English 2.0 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles. Extras include: production sketches, clean opening and closing animation, Japanese piracy warning, and ADV Previews.
