ADV Gets Steel
"We here at ADV are very excited to finally be bringing Steel Angel: Kurumi to the States," says ADV Films President John Ledford. "It's a fun, exciting series, and the animation is some of the best I've ever seen -- and I've seen a LOT of animation. Plus, I think the fans are going to be absolutely thrilled when they find out some of the exciting plans we're working on for the Kurumi series."
Steel Angel: Kurumi tells the story of Nakahito, a shy young man who stumbles across and accidentally awakens Kurumi, the vanguard of a new breed of extremely sexy androids -- known as "Steel Angels." Kurumi immediately pledges her services to Nakahito but unfortunately, Nakahito isn't the only one who wants to get a hold of these lovely "girls" -- the military wants to use the Steel Angels as weapons in their deadly game of global dominance.

Japanese language version with English subtitles. The 24-episode saga
will be delivered on 6 DVDs. ADV Films has not publicly announced the

Oscar race of the season, so far, is between the two hit computer-animated
spectaculars, DreamWorks' Shrek and Disney/Pixar's Monsters,
Inc., in the brand-new feature animation category this year..."
