    Well it looks like ADV films is going to provide anime 24/7 on their new network. You can check out the press release here. There are basically going to be four blocks: Action Zone, Sci-Fi, Comedy Incorrect, and Horror/Martial Arts. They are not listing any providers yet but I'm glad to see that someone is willing to give this idea a shot. I had always hoped that Cartoon Network would do something similar but they never seemed to get it off the ground.

    I tried to get into anime when I saw all the big hits such as Akira, Fist of the North Star, Ninja Scroll, etc... But many others I watched were just bland using the same old formula with a bunch of boring drama thrown in. When CN started showing DBZ I got into that but the hardcore anime freaks I know don't even consider that real anime (don't ask me why).

    Once this network is up and running I hope to check out some other types of anime and see what all the fuss is about.

    I'll be looking forward to it. Hopefully, it will get picked up by Time-Warner so I can see it.

    Let's hope there's no censored crap. I'm not advocating tentacles and naked school girls here (although it wouldn't be a bad idea......oops, strike that from the official record [​IMG] ), it would seem like the channel would be aimed for mainstream America and not the anime afficianado.
    This isn't to say I hate Dragon Ball Z either. I like the show, but I would like to see other anime on television as well. Too bad the censors would probably bleep and block everything out.

    ADV wishes it to be a basic cable channel, so there's going to be some trimming more than likely, but I agree that they'll keep it as intact as possible

    I'm only hoping that they mix up the dub/sub well

    I wonder if they could do dubs during the days and subs at night.

    I want to see Orguss and the original Captain Harlock series. I hope they can show these.

    Those are both in the Harmony Gold library, and HG have close ties with ADV therefore I'd say it's possible. Given the horrific dub on Harlock (and the infamous role reversal in the first episode) I certainly won't be watching
