Starting on the 14th April 2014, and shown on a daily basis at 5:30pm, Kix TV will be airing the latest (English Dubbed) series of Yu-Gi-Oh!, starting from the very first episode. It’s unclear how many episodes Kix TV will show, but it’s assumed that the entire first season will be shown with new episodes being shown on a daily basis. Read more of this post

East Asia Television Outlines the Daily Programming Schedule

east-asia-tv

East Asia Television, the upcoming satellite provided TV channel that promises to air anime and Japanese drama’s early next year has recently outlined the daily programming schedule for when the channel becomes active.

No details of what exactly the channel will be showing are listed, although they have been having weekly (and monthly) polls on the website to see which anime to broadcast on launch day, but it does show how the channel will operate on a daily basis, with child-friendly themed shows presented during the day with mature-uncut-anime shown in the late evenings.

  • Early Mornings is set for child based programming (Inc. kids animé old and new)
  • Late Morning* will contain drama, features, technology and review shows along with day edits of programming.
  • Afternoons will contain a variety of programming, such as imported chat shows and further Late Morning* content.
  • Evening will feature our most prestigious series (exclusives/live concerts/simulcasts) as well as evening edit programming.
  • Night & Late Night will be the place to catch up on full unedited versions of programmes shown in the day as well as some series that is aimed at a more mature audience (but are just as good).

As with all upcoming events the schedule can change without notice, furthermore East Asia Television has said that anime will not fill the entire line-up going into 2015, so it seems that anime will be the focus for its first year (or so) of broadcasting with different types of programming becoming available in the future.

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva to be Shown on the Sony Movie Channel Next Week

professor_layton_and_the_eternal_diva_2

The Late Night Anime segment continues on the Sony Movie Channel (Sly 323) next week with none other than LEVEL-5’s Professor Layton’s feature-length instalment, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva.

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva contains the iconic animation and voice cast of the Nintendo DS Game and throws them into a feature length movie whereby Layton and Luke must unravel the secrets hidden within the theatre. If you are a fan of the games then it’s definitely worth watching, as it has all the atmosphere of the game but in a feature length movie.

Despite being released under the  ‘Manga UK’ logo Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva was actually one of KAZE’s first titles released in the UK under  partnership with Manga Entertainment UK, but even more interesting is to see the Sony Movie Channel broadcast the film at such an ungodly hour, especially considering that the film is only rated a U.

The film is being shown on Tuesday 22nd October at 12:45am, but in reality it could have been shown ‘much earlier’ and got a wider viewing audience, however for those interested the film is available on DVD and Blu-ray within the UK.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Sony Movie Channel (Sky 323) is a free-to-view channel, meaning as long as you have a basic Sky Subscription you will be able to watch it.

As readers maybe aware the Sony Movie Channel started the ‘Late Night Anime’ slot several weeks ago, with a variety of popular KAZE UK Releases, including Berserk, Bleach and Journey to Agartha, already being shown – as well as upcoming releases such as last week’s Black Lagoon: Roberta’s Blood Trail, so it’s always worth keeping an eye on the channel to see what will be shown next.
