ADV ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE FOR LEGENDARY GENESIS CLIMBER MOSPEADA COLLECTION

ANIME TITLE WAS SOURCE FOR ROBOTECH: THE NEW GENERATION IN U.S.; AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME JUNE 17, 2003

HOUSTON, March 20, 2003--ADV Films today announced a release date of June 17, 2003 for the Genesis Climber Mospeada collection, containing all 25 episodes of the legendary series in one package. Never before released in the U.S., Genesis Climber Mospeada was the source material from which the third chapter of the ROBOTECH saga--ROBOTECH: The New Generation--was created. The ADV Films release of Genesis Climber Mospeada is available only in the original Japanese, with English subtitles.

While the directorial staff is led by none other than Katsuhisa Yamada (Battle of the Planets, Devil Hunter Yohko), Genesis Climber Mospeada is no slouch in the art department, either, with Yoshitaka Amano (1,001 Nights) and Shinji Aramaki (Gasaraki) among the designers.

The Story
The Earth has been invaded by the mysterious Inbit, and it's up to a handful of survivors from Mars Colony to liberate the planet. After an unsuccessful first attempt to retake the Earth, the inhabitants of Mars Base are ready to try again. Unfortunately, it's been many years since they have been to Earth and they miscalculate both the strength of the enemy and the strength of the Earth forces--with disastrous results. When the Second Liberation force is all but wiped out entering the Earth's atmosphere, the fate of the planet winds up in the hands of a single survivor, Stick Bernard. Joined by a bare handful of resistance fighters born on Earth, Stick must journey to the Inbit's headquarters at Reflex point in an attempt to discover the secrets of the Inbit and find a way to defeat them. Seven young warriors and their transforming planes and motorcycles are all that stand between the Inbit and Earth's freedom in one of the outstanding series that comprised the multi-generational favorite ROBOTECH.

Genesis Climber Mospeada (SRP $89.98) is a DVD-only release on five discs, including 25 complete episodes. In Japanese with English subtitles. Extras include character bios, clean opening and closing animations, production portfolios and ADV Previews.
Finally, the original Japanese version of what is known to us as 'Robotech: The New Generation' is coming to America!!!

Now did I miss something, or have they released the Southern Cross and Macross series?

Either way, this is going to be awesome. Now does someone wanna lend me $90 so I can pick this up?
