RIGHT STUF ANNOUNCES JUNE 26 RELEASE OFTO HEART, VOL. 3: BONDS OF FRIENDSHIP
Fully restored video, more mini-episodes & introduction of favorite character!
GRIMES, IA, March 19, 2007 – Anime producer The Right Stuf International is pleased to announce the release of TO HEART, Vol. 3: Bonds of Friendship on June 26, 2007.
This third of four volumes features episodes 8-10, plus the next two “mini” episodes (“omake”) found on the Japanese DVD release. Additionally, To Heart, Vol. 3 marks the introduction of robot-girl “Multi,” whose extreme popularity in Japan elevated the character to an almost iconic status.
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. 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.

Episode 9: “Where The Heart Is”
The Cultural Festival is here, and everyone’s excited, except for Tomoko. As the Student Rep for Class 2-B, she’s in charge of the café they’re going to hold, but the other students keep changing plans behind her back. Is the café doomed to failure before it even opens?
Episode 10: “Dreaming Smile”
There’s a new girl in school – and she’s like no one you’ve ever seen! Multi has charming eyes, bright green hair and the strangest metal ears. She’s a prototype maid robot, and she’s been sent to Hiroyuki’s school for a final field test. But no one expected things to end up like this!
