Animax-Asia… Dubbed in English – Episode 4: Towards the 1st Anniversary

– As expected, no new anime in November. I think I’ll forgive them for now since the ones which premiered in October (UFO Baby and Digimon) are long series. Also, I think they will continue the Galaxy Angel series with new seasons.

– So, Fun Fun Time 4-6PM, Mega Zone 8-11PM, Super Maniax (spelled Super ‘Manaix’ on the TV ad if you haven’t noticed) 11-12PM. So what do you call the 6-8PM timeslot? Nah, what’s the use of naming timeslots anyway?

– Special screenings are Big Gundam Sunday which means 7 hours of Mobile Suit Gundam, and Baby x Baby which means 7 hours of Baby Ba-chan and UFO Baby. Mind you though, I don’t consider Baby Ba-chan and UFO Baby as anime series for kids. They sometimes have themes which kids won’t understand. Well, anyway…

– Scanning the advanced schedule for December, new anime premiers:
Ex’D (OAV and Movie)
Saber Marionette J Again (OAV)
Avenger
Galaxy Angel Z

– BUT, this is where it starts to get weird. All those anime get premiered at the same day (Dec. 27, Monday).

Covering Megazone and Super Maniax + Overtime until 1AM. Seeing that setup, I wonder if Avenger is dubbed or subbed, Galaxy Angel Z too. It would be weird to have Galaxy Angel Z subbed because the first series was dubbed, and yet it owned the Super Maniax timeslot. What do they mean by that? Extended subbed timeslots? Or ALL English dubbing again?

And even more weird, in the Fun Fun time slot there is Area 88. Having fun fun time with exploding planes eh kids? Another timeslot reformat on December?

– Finally, come January, it will mark the 1st anniversary of Animax-Asia. Halfway through the year, I lessened watching the channel because of the English dubbing. I’m not against dubs but for me it became boring to watch Animax-Asia. Anyway, happy first birthday on January. I hope the channel would do better next year.

[…] So basically, contrary to my earlier assertions about the state of anime here, it looks like they’re trying to win over some of their lost audience since the change in dubbing language. I’ve kept tabs on bluemist’s Animax saga (found here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, ),# and I was noticed the negative “impression” it has garnered. This coming from a fellow countrymen, but with a different taste than mine, I somehow believed him. But of course as with “impressions”, coming from someone else, I apply skepticism to everything I see, read, and hear. […]
