The NZA Posted January 3, 2003 Share Posted January 3, 2003 ...as provided by silent member Morrigan.... NewType (Alex) was talking about this one lately: ADV, known for bringing a great deal of anime stateside (Samurai X, Robotech, Evangelion, etc), looks to seriously attempt "The Anime Network", a 24-hour cable channel of straight, (hopefully?) unedited anime. Genres include: The Anime Network™ model is structured around four categorized content areas: Action Zone, Sci-Fi, Comedy Incorrect, and Horror/Martial Arts. These categories are designed to include virtually the entire spectrum of quality anime, while contextualizing content for new viewers unfamiliar with specific titles The article doesn't say much of censorship or subtitles vs dubbed, but in any event...watching Kenshin now and having some fine series on deck such as Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, GTO, El Hazard etc (courtesy of my good friends Spiffytee, Chi-chan and NewType), I'm realizing more than just the superiority of animation in these titles, but the fact that many are far more interesting than the shitcoms and reality shows were thrown on a nightly basis. An idea like this might actually get me to pay for cable again, if done right. Here's the link, just click on "News Nov 6th" for details. The Anime Network What's everyone think? I'm excited.
