For those keeping track, by the way, we've got an hour and a half left.

In the meantime, I'm working on the 2009 Winter Anime Preview! <3

They're waiting-- so that they can sync up with Japan!...Maybe NOT Macross F. Maybe something completely new?

My plant says they're playing a clip and trying to sync up with Japan. The official BEI website says something about Gundam Wing. Kurokami!

Kurokami.  Says English dub will air on iATV (doesn't do me a lot of good).  I want to know if they're going to release it simultaneously english sub online.

I wish it was on a bigger channel that I actually got. Actually doing this is awesome, but I wouldn't mind a few days delay to air on a more wide-spread channel like Sci-Fi.

Um, on the post on the front page, where it says "Click here to see the full press release." Or, alternately, here.

Oh, I was looking on BAndai's page lol.

edit: so no online distribution?  Well that sucks.  How many people honestly get iATV?  I mean, it's nice that they're doing this, but still, one of the problems with anime in the first place is that it's not all that legally available unless it's out on DVD... (just sayin)

Sorta of a lame announcement. Cool that its a simultaneous release but not cool that its on a tv channel that not alot of people get
Post by scottfrye (25 posts) See mini bio Level 2
alot of people are like "kurokami? what the hell is that? never heard of it." At least on twitter thats what im hearing
Post by joshsanimeblog (33 posts) See mini bio Level 1
Yeah, saw that too, but really, how many series can they announce where hordes of people will be like "oh yeah, I've heard of that."  I mean, if they did this for, say, Toradora going into the fall season, there would probably be a lot of people, including myself, going "toradora, what's that?" so I don't really find that a legitimate complaint about the announcement.  My main complaint that it's on a TV station that only people in LA, Hawaii, and a few people in Texas and around NYC get.  I really hope they find a way to get this on hulu or something by the time it's supposed to air.

It took a moment to put it with the Black God manga I see in bookstores. I know that's what Kurokami means, but name recognition isn't always that easy.
