As someone who once bought VHS tapes of his favorite anime, the idea of simulcasting always just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. No matter what the show, the idea of simulcasting, or near simulcasting really just reinforces the evolution that our absorption of this media has taken. Now, we often make fun of the feudal fairy furry tail show known as InuYasha (Kagome! InuYasha!) but I don't honestly dislike the show. So, when we're told that Shonen Sunday will start airing the Finale as a simulcast on October 3rd, you can pretty much color me interested.
What says the peanut gallery? Does the low, low price of free and legal make InuYasha more appealing, or does it still get a pass?
Notice: Gia's liveblog on the subject specifically states that the shows will air at www.shonensunday.com/anime , which, if you go to currently gives you a forbidden page warning. Now, this could just been them protecting their assets, but apparently that part of the site will launch with Inyuasha. Maybe Gia can clear this up for us later. Oh well, either way you should go play around on their site anyway.
