Sony turns PS3 into DVR. Typically this makes us think of anime

Date: 2007 August 22 16:04 | Posted By:

Category > Gaming

Sony will be launching PlayTV in a number of European PAL territories (UK, Germany, Spain Italy). PlayTV is a device which allows the PS3 to record one channel whilst you view another. Another big plus is that you can stream content to your PSP via Remote Play or transfer it to the PSP to view outside the home.

Whilst I could make a lot of coments about the technlogy, what I'm really thinking about is that combined with Anime Central and Anime Network this could be very useful. Shame I don't have Sky, or a PSP or a PS3.

Heroes hits BBC 2

Date: 2007 July 12 17:25 | Posted By:

Category > Anime > TV

The BBC have revealed the broadcast date for hit show Heroes. It's due to start Wednesday 25th July at 9pm and is one of those must watch shows.

Why are we posting about an American series on a website that focuses for news for fans of Japan? Well the answer is simple, one of the central story arcs throughout the series focuses on Hiro Nakamura and Ando Masahashi. Hiro is an otaku, he enjoys reading manga and watching sci-fi. Manga even plays a big plot point in the series, but we won't say any more, we pride ourselves on being spoiler free. To be frank it's one of the best geeky TV shows we've seen in years that will be enjoyed by people who like to steer clear of geekdom too.

Although it's already been broadcast on the Sci-Fi Channel in the UK, only viewers with cable or satellite could catch it, so being broadcast on BBC 2 will make the series more mainstream in the UK. A second series of Heroes is in the works, along with a prequel series called Heroes: Origins.

UK MP fears reduction of British children's TV

Category > Anime > TV

The Guardian are reporting on British Conservative MP John Whittingdale's recent speech at the Incorporated Society of British Advertisers conference. Mr Whittingdale is the chairman of the Commons culture, media and sport select committee. He's rather worried about a children's TV and the impact of pulling food advertising from children's TV - "[It will] have a damaging effect on children's broadcasting that will lead to money going out of it, the effect will be fewer children's programmes produced in this country except for the BBC," the main concern he stresses is increase in imported Children's TV - "There will be a growth of the likes of Japanese anime cartoons and American animated content which is something we are concerned about and may need to be addressed as part of challenge of maintaining public service plurality."

So in a nut shell he's worried that there won't be enough British produced children's TV, as ITV has been reducing it's children's output. The Otaku News crew want more TV greats like Danger Mouse. ^_^

Waiting for merchandise related to the hit recent anime series Afro Samurai? Well, you won't have to wait for much longer as DC Unlimited, DC Comics' new 3D brand which licenses pop culture products from outside the DC comic book universe and distributes them to all channels, has acquired the license to produce action figures, busts and statues related to Gonzo-produced series starring Samuel L. Jackson that aired on Spike TV last January. These will be the first line of collectibles based on the series outside of Japan, where a limited number of action figures based on the lead character were produced by toy company Cube back when series' creator Takashi "Bob" Okazaki first produced his original self-published manga.

The first series of collectibles were unveiled last weekend at the New York International Toy Fair. These include fully articulated action figures of two sizes, a regular 6.75 and a deluxe 14 , that spotlight the characters from the anime. The first wave of figures will include main character Afro Samurai, his sidekick Ninja Ninja, and deadly adversaries Kuma and Justice. A possible second wave of figures will no doubt include the Empty Seven, a group of monks determined to get the headbands worn by Afro and Justice, as well as possibly a young Afro. Busts and statues will also be available, though no details as to who they will be of, outside of Afro of course, have been given. The first series of collectibles will be shipped to retailers in the fall of 2007.

Ah this has been a good day, I played a Wii today but that's not what this is about. This is about the news that apparently 4kids is stopping work on One Piece, though we'll have to wait for official word. This doesn't mean that they are giving up rights, so fans will have to hope they give them up or let them lapse next renewal. I suspect that Viz will get first dibs since they are showing multi-media Shonen Jump support for the titles they did retain. Make sure your favourite anime company knows you want One Piece uncut, and dare we suggest the movies too? This will also we suspect affect the release of the Wii One Piece game, which was looking marvellous and I hope will now not have the 4kids cast, if 4kids don't sit on rights like they did with Ultimate muscle anyway.

There has been much discussion regarding the poor quality of edits, such as the use of static low resolution screen shots or editing out entirely of important shots rather than relying solely on the toned down Toonami edits.

"Jetix UK aims to provide exciting and entertaining content for our audience whilst being a responsible kids broadcaster. We therefore must ensure the content of our programmes is suitable for our target audience and we follow strict OFCOM regulations to ensure that these standards are adhered to. Where certain content from the original has been deemed unsuitable for our younger viewers it has been edited from the version which Jetix will be broadcasting. These edits are subtle and we don't believe alter the quality of the viewing experience. If Jetix fans in the UK wish to view the uncut version of Naruto Manga is releasing the DVD of the first 13 episodes, entitled Naruto Unleased, on 21 August. The next 13 episodes will be released on DVD at the end of November."
