Site offers new contest, more avatars & link to new discussion forum!

GRIMES, IA, March 20, 2007 – Anime producer The Right Stuf International is pleased to relaunch shingu.rightstuf.com (http://shingu.rightstuf.com), the official Web site celebrating the upcoming release of the SHINGU: SECRET OF THE STELLAR WARS Complete Thinpak Collection on April 24, 2007.

In addition to reading about the series and its characters, visitors to the site can watch a trailer, download new desktop wallpapers and even more avatars, and enter a contest for a chance to win the entire series on DVD with the exclusive first-run art box and T-shirt! (Complete contest rules and regulations can be found at shingu.rightstuf.com.) Also, the site features a link to the Official SHINGU Forum at AnimeOnDVD.com: a place where those curious about the show can go to ask questions and where current Shingu fans can discuss and debate the series’ many mysteries.

The science-fiction adventure, described by Home Media Retailing as “extremely addictive,” takes place in a not-so-distant future and follows one student’s attempts to make sense of a world that is rapidly changing in ways he could not have anticipated. This new release collects all 26 episodes of the anime series, plus an array of bonus materials, in one thinpak box set.

From acclaimed director Tatsuo Sato (NADESICO / THIS UGLY YET BEAUTIFUL WORLD / AZUMANGA DAIOH), Shingu features animation by Madhouse (ANIMATRIX / DEATH NOTE / PAPRIKA), plus planning by Masao Maruyama (GUNGRAVE / DEATH NOTE / PARADISE KISS), production by Masao Morosawa (GUNGRAVE / JUBEI-CHAN / TRIGUN) and character designs by Yuugi Ikeda (SAIYUKI / GUNGRAVE / MONSTER).

Intergalactic Spies. Extraterrestrials. Double Lives.

The town Hajime thought he knew has many secrets, but he may just have stumbled upon the biggest one of all!
