Section 23 Films, the new company that has taken over distribution of ADV's former releases, has announced their November new release schedule, and it's a good one.

The following November releases are now available on the store site for pre-order:

All of the above are being published by Sentai Filmworks, which apparently released from whatever previous legal obligations with ADV Films had been holding it up, will now be cranking out new material to be distributed through the new Section 23 Films company. The legal and ethical details aside, we (as fans) seem to be the benefactors of their new business arrangements. :-)

Series Synopsis:

Special A (S.A.)
Hikari Hanazono, the main character, has always been second to Kei Takishima. While Hikari considers Kei a rival and somewhat of a friend, Kei loves Hikari. Everyone knows this, but she is too dense to notice. Their wrestling loving fathers first introduced them to one another when they were 6 years old. Assuming that she was the best in wrestling, young Hikari challenged Kei to a wrestling match only to be thoroughly defeated by him. Ever since that fateful incident, Hikari swore to beat Kei in school grades, a sporting event - anything. To do this she has enrolled in the same school as Kei since elementary. Now she attends Hakusenkan, an ultra elite school, that costs her carpenter father a lot of money. Hikari and Kei are the top two students in the school, with Kei holding firmly to that number one position.

Although the ritual fails and Riannon survives, the seal imprisoning the demon king is broken and Arawn is resurrected. Armed with mysterious and devastating powers and a human’s demeanour, Arawn joins Riannon, her brother and battalion commander, Arthur, as well as their team of fighters comprising a swordsman, an archer and a quintet of magical pixies, in the epic struggle against the Divine Empire.
