Right Stuf ANNOUNCES MAY 29 RELEASE OF TO HEART, VOL. 2: FINDING COURAGE

Fully restored video and first of mini-episodes mark second volume.

GRIMES, IA, February 21, 2007 – Anime producer The Right Stuf International is pleased to announce the release of TO HEART, Vol. 2: Finding Courage on May 29, 2007.

Based on one of Japan’s most popular games, To Heart follows childhood friends Akari and Hiroyuki, and their classmates, as they deal with life’s everyday – and not-so-everyday – dramas. This tale of love, relationships and friendship has been a fan favorite since its 1999 Japanese television debut, and perceptive American fans may recognize the series from its numerous “cameos” in the best-selling Comic Party anime.

Available to U.S. audiences for the first time ever, Right Stuf’s release of To Heart features a complete video restoration of the entire 13-episode series. This second of four volumes features episodes 5-7, plus the first installment of extra “mini” episodes (“omake”) found on the Japanese DVD release.

In To Heart, Vol. 2: Finding Courage:

Episode 5: “Beneath the Blue Sky Time for the Sports Festival! It’s a day full of games, races, food and decorations, and everyone’s having fun – except Hiroyuki. He seems oddly detached, and talking with others only seems to agitate him. What could be the cause of his strange behavior?
Episode 6: “Admiration Rio Hinayama is kind of quirky. She is clumsy, terrified of dogs and compares most things in life to the stories found in her favorite manga. Somehow, she keeps running into Hiroyuki over and over again. Is it fate that keeps bringing these two together…?
Episode 7: “Wavering Gaze There’s something… different… about Kotone Himekawa. She’s a shy but beautiful girl with flowing lavender hair, but no one will be her friend. No one goes near her or is willing to even talk about her. What could this quiet girl have done to be so completely shunned by the rest of the world?
Special Mini Episode 1: When Kotone sits down to write a letter, she really puts her mind to it!
Special Mini Episode 2: Something squirmy has escaped from the Occult Club! Is the rest of the school suddenly in danger?

DVD content includes: :
Reversible cover, translation notes, line art gallery, character bios, scene access, Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo audio for English and Japanese dialogue, English subtitles, plus English on-screen translations.
