VIZ Announces Neon Alley, Aniplex USA Announces Blue Exorcist Dub

Posted by FlawlessBitch on July 2, 2012 at 1:40 AM

VIZ Media announced early this week that they have plans to create a 24-hour anime channel titled Neon Alley. The new channel will be debuting on game consoles this fall and will be available in the U.S. and Canada. Neon Alley will be subscription-based and will be presented with limited commercial advertising. The new channel will be $6.99 a month. (ssshiet, I'm already paying Hulu+ around the same price, and you expect me to do the same with this? Kiss my ass!). It's set to provide a variety of anime uncut, dubbed into English and presented in HD (when available). Programming will include Naruto Shippuden, InuYasha: the Final Act, Death Note, Tiger & Bunny, Berserk: the Golden Age Arc, Zetman, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan and more. Original content such as behind-the-scenes and news will be provided as well.




As apart of the Neon Alley partnership, Aniplex USA announced at their Anime Expo panel that Blue Exorcist will be dubbed and will be completed in September in time for the launch of the new service. Neon Alley is not an on-demand service. Rather, it will be similar to a television channel, airing a feed of shows at certain times of the day. The service will launch on game consoles connect to the Internet this Fall. It’s unclear as to what console(s) the service will launch on at this point in time, but if they wanna make money and viewership, they better make it all three.

Neon Alley is going to flop. No one will pay $6.99 a month for it. Plus all those animes listed are free to watch on hulu without hulu plus. The fact that it's not on-demand will make it a pain to watch the animes you want to watch. On-demand is the way of the future. Neon Alley might as well embrace it. I think it will be available on Wii U/ PS3 for no extra charge. On the 360, only gold members will have access to it. So they pay $6.99 a month and pay for xbox live gold. I don't know what's up with the date. Maybe you wrote this in the future. LOL!!

I feel neutral about the whole thing actually. Because I know I won't be getting it since like you said, you just go on Hulu. I got Hulu plus because it beats t.v and there's some stuff you can't watch w/o it and I wanted to watch it. So, I went ahead and gotten it. There's people saying they would get it while some will not.

I see. I don't think very many people are going to pay for this. If it was a free channel that made all of it's money from commercials then it would have a better chance at success. I noticed you removed the animated gifs and replaced them with the Blue Exorcist picture.
