ADV Films in October
have sent through details on their UK Region 2 line-up for October 2005. They have six new titles planned including Martian Successor Nadesico: The Complete Chronicles, a six-disc collection bringing together all 26 episodes of the sci-fi comedy series in one complete collection.
Arriving on 17th October 2005 are the following titles...
Martian Successor Nadesico: The Complete Chronicles - The Earth, the Moon and our Martian Colonies are under alien attack and our space fleets are powerless to stop the invasion. Disgusted by the incompetence of the Terran military, the independent arms manufacturer Nergal builds its own space battle cruiser and launches a new offensive in a desperate attempt to save the Earth. Unfortunately, due to a shortage of trained military personnel, the crew is a little unorthodox.... With a reluctant assistant cook as a pilot, a ditsy General's daughter in command, and the largest contingent of geeks, misfits and anime fans ever sent into orbit, the poor enemy Jovians won't stand a chance! There's love, war and giant robots galore in the award winning anime masterpiece Martian Successor Nadesico!
Priced at £59.99 Martian Successor Nadesico: The Complete Chronicles collects together all six volumes in Nexpak's smart M-Lock 6 case, wrapped up in fresh artwork.
The remaining titles for release in October include the latest volumes in five ongoing series priced at £19.99 each...
