Los Angeles, CA (July, 2005) - In every generation, there is a chosen one. She alone shall stand against the vampires, demons, and forces of darkness. She is the Slayer. A critically-acclaimed television show, Buffy The Vampire Slayer has reached worldwide cult status. Now TOKYOPOP, the #1 publisher of manga, and innovator of the Cine-Manga book format, is proud to present Buffy’s 100th episode, "The Gift," as you’ve never seen it before.

In TOKYOPOP’s trademarked Cine-Manga format, The Ultimate Buffy The Vampire Slayer delivers the story’s spine-tingling dynamics and disturbing plotline with vivid screen captures and manga-style word balloons. This chilling Cine-Manga adaptation of "The Gift," one of Josh Whedon’s most unforgettable and shocking episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is packed with never-before-seen behind-the-scenes photos, director and actor commentary, excerpts from the uncut script, and intricately designed stunts.

The apocalypse is at hand in Sunnydale! Buffy must square off against a true god when Glory prepares to use Dawn to unleash all Hell on Earth. The only way to save the day is to kill Dawn—but Buffy refuses to harm her little sister, and the gang heads into battle knowing that some of them may not survive...

"Buffy has become an icon. I’ve always been a huge fan, and it was a thrill to work on something that other fans will love," said TOKYOPOP Cine-Manga editor, Erin Stein. "’The Gift’ is one of the greatest episodes ever, and TOKYOPOP is so excited to present it with behind-the-scenes content that fans have never seen before!"
