"Kids Float! Adults Swim!"
I really owe the blog some actual news, or some sort of Japanese culture piece, but... naaah!
I was really surprised to see how many people were not aware of Sci-Fi Channel's new Ani-Monday block. Yes that's right, yet another anime venue that ingeniously uses the "Ani-" prefix. Honestly, Pocky, you should have trademarked that.
Each week starting at 11:00 PM EST, Ani-Monday plays two hours worth of new and classic anime. Noein, the new(ish) anime licensed by Manga Entertainment (responsible for bringing Ghost in the Shell and Evangelion an english dub) featuring stunning visuals and a deeply intelligent plot with loads of quantum theory dialog, usually* comes on first, followed by Tokko, a series about a young man seeking answers about his parents' death by joining a secret police organization. Macross Plus just wrapped up showing, but Street Fighter II has replaced it to round out the block.
