Okay, now I DEFINITELY need solid cable when I move.
SyFy-chan's schedule has been updated to include a new series in its AniMonday line-up: Monster! Based on Naoki Urasawa's phenomenal suspense manga, the series revolves around a Japanese doctor living in Germany who suffers some backlash when he saves a young boy instead of a well-known politician. The backlash ends when all of the hospital staff involved in plotting his downfall mysteriously die...and then the boy disappears.
The anime, like the manga, is strong and steady, and for you slightly older sort, it's frequently compared to the original TV show of The Fugitive. I'm definitely looking forward to watching it on TV! It starts on October 12th.
Some of you may also be interested in what happens in the 12am-1am block, the Street Fighter Motion comic and the Voltron Motion Comic, both from Eagle One Media. Here's Eagle One's first four minutes of the Street Fighter version for you to check out and see if you'd watch it.
You've probably seen stuff like this before, but I have to confess, it's more nicely done than most of the motion comics/manga I've seen. Though it's still a billion times less cool than Monster.
