ADV Films in March
ADV Films have sent through details on their UK Region 2 line-up for March 2006. They have four new titles planned including the first volume of Madlax, a series chock-full of murder, mystery, and blazing girls-with-guns action from the creative team that set the animation world on fire with Noir. Arriving on 20th March 2006 priced at £19.99 each are...
Madlax: Connections - Directed by Koichi Mashimo (NOIR, .hack//sign, Sorcerer Hunters) and designed by the full NOIR team of Satoshi Osawa, Minako Shiba, Satoko Miyachi and Kinji Teraoka, MADLAX was produced by animation powerhouses Bee Train (NOIR, .hack//sign) and Victor Entertainment (Excel Saga, Ghost In the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, RahXephon). Once again the wonderfully evocative score is from Yuki Kajiura, while the English language version has been put together with the full resources and finest VAs that Industrial Smoke & Mirrors can provide.
Female gun-for-hire Madlax is a super-sexy and super-deadly mercenary who makes her living in a nation embroiled in civil war. Margaret, a rich orphan who lives almost a world away, attends school like any normal girl her age. Both of these women live completely different lives but share a strange similarity: they have no recollection of their past. What is the connection between these two beautiful strangers, and what do they have to do with the mysterious international criminal organization and intelligence network known only as “Enfant”?
The DVD includes four episodes in English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 language, with English subtitles. Extras include: clean opening and closing animations; Japanese promo spots; phone calls from Three Speed; design sketches; unused opening sequence; and ADV Previews.
