Chrno Crusade Licenced by ADV

ADV FILMS ACQUIRES CHRONO CRUSADE HOME VIDEO AND BROADCAST RIGHTS

HOUSTON, March 15, 2004—ADV Films, the #1 producer-distributor of anime in the U.S., today announced it has acquired exclusive home video and broadcast rights in North America for Chrono Crusade, an action-adventure anime that follows an unlikely duo as they attempt to destroy supernatural evil through exorcisms in 1920’s New York City.

Chrono Crusade recently made its Japanese television debut to much fanfare. Renowned anime production company Gonzo Digimation, of Full Metal Panic!, Hellsing and Kaleido Star fame, managed animation production for the title, ensuring a spectacular visual experience for viewers.

ADV Manga already has the rights to the popular Chrono Crusade manga series by Daisuke Moriyama, which premiers with a May 25, 2004 street date.

The series will be featured on the Anime Network™, the first cable channel in North America dedicated to anime.

About Chrono Crusade
New York City, the 1920s: With the Great War firmly behind it, America enjoys a period of great peace and prosperity. Of course, history has proven that such times rarely last for long. Lurking in the shadows is a sinister force born of hellfire and evil, with the power and desire to feast upon the nation’s tranquility like a lion would its prey. Sister Rosette Christopher, a gun slinging nun, and her partner, Chrono, are exorcists with the Convent of Magdalene—NYC’s first line of defense against the demon hordes that plague the city. Unfortunately, the city might be better off in the hands of the demons, as the adventurous pair tend to cause more rampant collateral than their hellspawn foes.

“Since we already have the manga rights, this acquisition enables us to provide fans with even more exposure to the popular Chrono Crusade series through home video and television programming via The Anime Network,” said John Ledford, president, CEO and co-founder of ADV Films. “This is such a fun series! The characters are a delight to follow and the story is full of comic adventures and unique character developments. The manga has already been generating a lot of interested among fans, and we anticipate that the DVD release will be equally – if not more – anticipated.”

Release Plans
ADV Films has not yet announced specific release plans for the Chrono Crusade anime series, but Ledford expects the title to debut sometime later this year.

As with past Gonzo shows this was given it was licenced before it was even released. Can't wait to pick this one up and hear all the comlaints in this thread.

<Sarcasm> I never saw this coming, not a mile away. I didnt think there was a way that this series could ever get licensed...</sarcasm>

wow, this was an obvious one... just surprised it took them so long and they are actually using the name Chrono instead of Chrno....

There is a good chance of this still getting subbed. It just won't be listed here. I mean <beep> subs <beep> and <beep> and <beep> still subs <beep>, so I bet we will see the end of <beep>, just not on animesuki.

Well, this show isn't like Maburaho where groups were looking for an excuse to get out of it and liscencing provided that. I doubt there will even be a blip in it's release schedule.

Given that it's going to be a higher-end DVD release, expect a well-done DVD.

Looking forward to it
