Le Chevalier D’Eon: PSLAM OF VENGEANCE

LE CHEVALIER D'EON: PSLAM OF VENGEANCEObsessed By Her Death. Possessed By Her Soul.

ADV Films is proud to announce the arrival of a title that will make everyone re-think what anime is and what it can be. Le Chevalier D’Eon is one of the most anticipated series of the new year. The revolution and revelations begin February 20!

From Director Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Get Backers, Rurouni Kenshin TV) and Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell, Blood+) comes a tale of murder, mystery and mysticism. Le Chevalier D’Eon is a masterful fictionalization of the real life Charles d’Eon de Beaumont, a diplomat, writer, spy, and Freemason known as one of the best swordsman in France, whose true gender was a source of speculation well into the late 18th century.

Synopsis: Paris, 1742. A coffin floats in the shimmering Seine. On the lid, a word written in blood—Psalms. Inside, the body of a beautiful woman. Lia de Beaumont. Now her brother, D’Eon, seeks the reason for her mysterious murder, and uncovers an evil that shadows both the palaces of kings and the dark alleys of Europe. A power wielded by spell-casting Poets, and manipulated by royalty. A force so powerful it brings Lia’s soul back from beyond to seize the only weapon she can possess to avenge her death—her own brother. History meets horror. Fantasy meets mystery. Experience the next revolution in anime with Le Chevalier D’Eon.

Le Chevalier D’Eon: Psalm of Vengeance (SRP $29.98 DVD) is an anamorphic DVD-only release including the first four episodes, presented in both English 5.1 and Japanese 5.1 with English subtitles. Extras include historical notes, multiple commentaries by the English cast and staff, the original Japanese TV spots, plus clean opening animation, clean closing animation and previews of upcoming ADV Films releases.

First Voltron DVD set

golionSci-Fi has a review of the first set of Voltron DVDs. Here’s a small part of it:

… there’s an awful lot to like in these opening Voltron episodes, from the slow-burn plot arc to the careful establishment of five iconic characters: Keith (the dashing, blandly perfect leader), Hunk (the big, slowish but good-hearted one), Lance (the “edgy” smartass), Pidge (the brains-over-brawn kid) and Princess Allura (the obligatory girl, and often the team’s weakest link, in emotions and skills alike). These five characters became prototypes, often imitated and often shorthanded, in part because they were established so well here, with episodes focusing on each of them in turn.
