Inazuma Eleven Comes To Kix TV Next Month


It seems UK based free-to-air satellite TV channel “Kix” are contempt on supplying edited anime to the UK Market, as their latest show is non-other than Inazuma Eleven, the anime series based upon the popular Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS games.

The TV series, which was produced by LEVEL-5, developers of the DS Games, in conjunction with TV Tokyo and OLM sees Mark Evans as captain of the Raimon Middle School’s football (soccer) club as he attempts to build a team in order to become the best team in the city.

In total 127 episodes, spanning two seasons, are available for Inazuma Eleven, but it’s unclear how many Kix TV currently have, however what we do know is that Kix TV will begin broadcasting the series on Tuesday 1st July 2014 at 8am, with new episodes shown everyday at the same time, with the same episode repeated again at 7pm.

These same episodes will be shown again on Saturday 5th July and Sunday 6th July at 9:30am, which is straight after Dragon Ball Z Kai, with additional episodes shown at 7pm, thus acting as a re-cap before new episodes are shown.

Of course it’s not in High Definition or uncut, but its still nice to see anime, especially a rather niche series such as this, making its way to UK TV Screens. In oorder to view Kix TV, viewers will need a Sky, Freesat or compatible Satelite Box.

Kix TV To Broadcast Bakugan: Battle Brawlers within the UK, Starts This Saturday


It’s not exactly Blu-ray (or DVD) news but its more “anime-related” information for UK TV, even if it is edited. Anyway fresh off brand wew episodes of Dragon Ball Z Kai (along with the brand new series of the Mysterious Cities of Gold) the free-to-air Satelite TV Channel Kix, has announced that it will be broadcasting the anime series Bakugan: Battle Brawlers, with the first episode being shown this Saturday.

Bakugan: Battle Brawlers is another relatively new series, as it wasn’t “that long” ago when it was being shown on Cartoon Network. Either way the series itself focuses on Dan and his friends who, after meeting the Bakugan Drago, decide to help him in his quest to save his world, Vestroia, from destruction. The series has a “Digimon / Pokemon” vibe to it whereby humans battle using Bakugan (small capsules that transform into real-life robotic dragons) while at the same time their is a parrellel world alongside the humans.

Bakugan: Battle Brawlers will start this saturday (at 12:30am) on Sky Channel 627 and Freesat Channel 606, with the second episode being shown on sunday at the same time, after that a new episode will be shown every day at 8am, until the weekend where (yet again) it will be shown at 12:30am. Its not known how long this timeslot is for, but more information can be found on the Kix Website.

Kix TV to Broadcast The Mysterious Cities of Gold

UK Free-To-View Kids channel, KIX TV, has today tweeted to reveal that brand new episodes of iconic 80’s TV anime series, The Mysterious Cities of Gold, will be shown.

Exact details have yet to be revealed, but it is assumed that Kix will either be broadcasting the original 80’s TV series (which was previously released on DVD back in 2008) or an entirely new series that premiered last year in france on the TF1 Channel.

Either way it’s not my type of series, but I know readers are interested in it, so did you ever watch The Mysterious Cities of Gold during its initial 80’s run within the UK.
