g4 (america) to broadcast anime again!

Postby perrandy » Sat Jul 24, 2010 1:53 pm

didnt know that they used to broadcast anime way back in the day. in any case, it seems that they are going to start broadcasting a few anime shows starting next year...

the shows are: 1) wolverine
2) ironman
3) blade
4)x-men
as you can see all of these titles are originally from american comics.anyways, its always good that networks are willing to gamble on anime at this stage of the game.now the only question that remains is at what hour they will air such titles? :D :?:

here's the link btw: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/20 ... ted-states ;)

I'm PO'd marvel picked G4 Over somthing like Scyfy or Spike (because 1 I don't get the network anymore, and 2, it has gone WAAAY downhill from what I have heard over the past 2-3 years.)

but yea, I guess I'll just wait for the DVD release. Glad the marvel animes are fianlly making their way stateside though.

Yes...G4 has gone downhill, and with news like this, it doesn't surprise me.

'Pardon my french' but, that's some vanilla ass programing....I mean, really? Marvel? Nothing against these legacy titles but damn...do they really expect these to do that well in the US, on G4? To double check my point, I just typed in "Ironman" into the search function of my digital cable provider's title menu, and even though it only lists shows 6 days ahead (+ today)...It shows 14 shows upcoming. Two different animated versions, and the rest are the movies.

We live in a society that loses interest pretty fast, I think the average American/anime fan probably feels similar (at least to some degree) to me. I probably won't even attempt watching any of these except Blade, as I have Wolverine, Ironman, AND ESPECIALLY X-Men...coming out of my bottom. In my years growing up, I think I've seen enough X-men variations on TV to NEVER want to watch it again...not even in an anime style......

And, as perrandy pondered...are really going to try putting them on at late night against shows like South Park or Adult Swim? Or, will these just be so toned down that they'll air within the FCC "Safe Harbor" time blocks?
