ADV Films is releasing the first volume of DEVIL MAY CRY and the second volume of MAGIKANO on DVD Feb. 5, 2008.
MAGIKANO: WITCH HUNT is the second of three DVD volumes. Produced by Studio GONZO (WELCOME TO THE NHK, CHRONO CRUSADE) and directed by Seiji Kishi (RAGNAROK THE ANIMATION), MAGIKANO is a comedy that follows witch Ayumi, whose goal is to turn Haruo into a real man, but a bumbling witch hunter keeps getting in the way.
MAGKIANO: WITCH HUNT ($29.98) is a DVD-only release including episodes 6-9 in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles. Extras include clean opening animation, clean closing animation and previews of upcoming ADV Films releases.
DEVIL MAY CRY: THE ANIMATED SERIES will hit store shelves the same day that Capcom's much-anticipated DEVIL MAY CRY 4 videogame is released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The first DEVIL MAY CRY game released on the PlayStation 2 in 2001 went on to sell more than 4 million copies.
Capcom is also releasing a special DEVIL MAY CRY 4 COLLECTOR'S EDITION, which includes both Capcom's new videogame and the first volume of ADV's anime series. The COLLECTORS EDITION sports an attractive Steelbook case holding the game, the anime DVD, and a bonus DVD including a "making of" feature on the new game and many other game-related extras. Fans purchasing the DEVIL MAY CRY 4 COLLECTOR'S EDITION will be able to enter their address at the ADV website to receive a VOLUME 1 DVD case plus a coupon for $5 off VOLUME 2 with the limited edition anime Collectors Box.
From the acclaimed production team at Madhouse Studios (DEATH NOTE, NINJA SCROLL) in conjunction with the original creators at Capcom, DEVIL MAY CRY follows Dante, half demon and half human, who is charged with ridding the world of the demons that plague it for the right price.
DEVIL MAY CRY: THE ANIMATED SERIES VOLUME 1 ($26.96) is a DVD-only anamorphic release including the first four episodes, presented in both English 5.1 and Japanese 5.1 with English subtitles. Video extras include an interview with Japanese voice actor Toshiyuki Morikawa (Dante), cut scenes from the DEVIL MAY CRY 4 videogame, various promos of the new game, and game previews, plus clean opening animation, clean closing animation and previews of upcoming ADV Films releases.
