ADV Films has licensed its first third party series, the hit anime thriller Boogiepop Phantom, for broadcast on its Anime Network. The Right Stuf International is the producer of the U.S. version of Boogiepop Phantom, which ADV also distributes in video form. While ADV Films has an extensive library of anime that it has produced and distributed for the American market, the programming demands of an all anime cable network make this sort of move a natural for ADV. Look for more deals like this as the Anime Network expands its reach and exposure.
ADV has also reached an agreement with AN Entertainment (see 'AnimeNation Announces Its First DVD Release') to distribute Anime Nation's first anime release, Omishi Magical Theater: Risky Safety.
