“It’s enough to send a horny robot-obsessed thirteen-year-old into a coma.” – DVD Verdict

ADV Films is proud to bring you a combo-collection long overdue! All the adventure, mecha and fan-service of both Gravion and Gravion Zwei are now available in one sleek and sexy thin-packed case.

Directed by Masami Obari (Bubblegum Crisis, Fatal Fury) and animated by world renowned animation studio GONZO (Full Metal Panic!, Chrono Crusade), the Gravion series is a sci-fi romp with all the action, comedy and adventure a fan could want.

Synopsis: When mankind faces an alien force with technology light years ahead of its own, will they be enough to save the Earth from destruction? The fate of humanity rests in the hands of the mysterious billionaire Sandman and a young band of orphaned misfits. Sandman’s units control the Gravion, a robotic deity forged of circuits and steel. But can his erstwhile pilots stop fighting amongst themselves long enough to fight the Zeravire? Or will the Earth be lost before the fight has even begun? Hold onto your seats! With plenty of bouncing, gravity-defying breasts, enough merry maids to staff a small hotel, lots of deep, dark secrets and non-stop battles, the Gravion series has all the fan service, intrigue and outright action that you’ve been looking for. In Gravion Zwei Sandman and his ragtag crew of misfits and loners are back at it again, only this time, they won’t be the only ones on duty! Enter the elite G-Soldier Squadron, the first unit of the government’s attempt to mass-produce Gravion technology. Led by ace pilot Faye, will the G-Soldiers push the Earthgertz gang out of a job?

Gravion and Gravion Zwei Complete Collection (SRP $54.98 DVD) is a DVD-only release including the first and second season on six disks, presented in both English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 with English subtitles.
