June releases from ADV Films
ADV films have sent me the press release for their June releases. Of foremost interest is the first volume of Neon Genesis Evangelion: Directors' Cut. Here is the blurb:
 LONDON, UK, 17th May 2004 - ADV Films today announced a 21st June 2004
 release date for Resurrection, the first of two Directors' Cut volumes of the
