Hello and greetings fellow otaku.
I think it is time to get something of my chest that has me a bit annoyed!!!!!!!!!!! I am talking about the cable channel known as Animax. As many of you know or may not know, Animax is a satalite television network that airs anime 24 hours a day in Japan, they also have other affliates in latin america, united kingdom, australia and other countries. They show the latest shows and series from Japan and also well know and popular series. According to wikipedia they state that back in 2004 their was plans to bring Animax to the states but their has been no further progress. I personally feel that this channel should come to the states. We have networks such as anime network and funimation channel but most states do not carry them on their local cable and satelite providers. It would be awesome to have all three of these channels on all cable and satelite providers for all anime fans to get the best selection of anime possible. And that is the end of my opinion. Laters.

Greetings fellow otaku,
I know this is not anime remix, but I think it is time for a little change of pace. I am proud to introduce another new segment to this blog entitled the week in anime (Insert news bumper here). This segment will cover the top news story in anime over the past week. Last week, funimation sued a group of southern california anime retailers for selling illegal bootlegs of their series. Some of these series include Dragon Ball Z, Full Metal Alchemist and Fruits Basket. Funimation is suing these companies for over $23 million dollars in damages.
My Point Of View
I personally do not support the purchase or sale of bootleg anime dvd’s. The sale of these dvd’s are hurting the anime industry as a whole, which cause a rise in prices for those who buy anime legaly. I also do not support websites like crunchyroll.com or other sites who post illegal fansubs of unlicensed anime series. Overall, buying bootleg dvd’s or watching illegal fansubs is just wrong. However their are many sites that have anime that you can watch legally such as funimation’s channel on youtube and also hulu.com which have full episodes available for viewing. And that’s the week in anime, and remember that their is a ton of great anime and manga out there, you just got to know where to look. Catch ya later.
