 Yes, the screencap is from the anime OP, but the text on the right reads TV DRAMA Moyashimon.

If you're not already familiar, FujiTV's noitaminA-- "Animation" backwards --is perhaps one of anime's most well-respected TV timeslots (Thursday night/Friday morning from 12:45-1:15am). With such titles as Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Paradise Kiss, and Eden of the East, it's always worth checking out whatever is in that timeslot. (This season it's Nodame Cantabile Finale, natch.)

But the slot has, since noitaminA's establishment in April 2005 (launching with Honey and Clover's first season), always been about anime...until now. anime!anime! reports that the live-action drama of Moyashimon will be airing in that slot in 2010, presumably at the end of the year. (Yojou-han Shinwa Taikei is airing in the slot in spring 2010, and the adaptation of Natsume Ono's House of Five Leaves will also be in the slot sometime this year-- I'd bet on Moyashimon for summer and Five Leaves for fall, personally.)

Not quite sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I like Moyashimon and hey, at least it's a drama based on a manga, and one whose anime adaptation ALSO aired in noitaminA. On the other hand, hello? The name of the slot is ANIMATION backwards! Hm...

Like MTV calling itself Music Television yet it doesn't air music anymore. XD
