    Sci Fi Targets Late Night - 5/7/2007 - Broadcasting & Cable:

    So far, they've only announced a Monday night Anime block, but this can easily be expanded!!! Features to be shown will be out of the licensed collection of Manga Entertainment. So, do you think this is a good thing?, and how will Adult Swim react to this???
    Awesome!!!! something good to watch FINALLY!!!!
    Adult swim? pfffff.... better I sleep early then.... I never have liked adult swim......
    It will be so sweet to have some good anime going on sci-fi... I'd say go for it!
    Reaction of Adult swim.... maybe they will realize that good anime brings more ppl and maybe they will put some good stuff on their transmision.... just maybe.....
    Nothing less from Pyro ^_^ Great Sig ^_^ THANK YOU!!!!

    This is great news, especially since I've only recently had Sci-Fi (wasn't available on basic cable where I used to live). It'll be interesting to see what shows they pick up; hopefully they'll focus on recently licensed anime, not things everyone's already seen. Kinda wish they'd do this a little earlier in the evening, since I get up ridiculously early during the week for work.

    i honestly don't think there's going to be any real competition. with how many genres of anime there are, if the scifi channel's anime goes well and they do become as big as adult swim they won't be competing too much, as long as they do different genres. then again....[AS] does show a lot of scifi style animes, so they could start competing...

    Now quoting from another Forum...
    June 11th - Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society

    June 18, 25th - Noein, Tokko and Macross Plus
    This is now confirmed from the Sci-Fi channel online TV Schedule...
    Schedule | On Air | SCIFI.COM

    Now if this is true, this would be the US Premier 'Solid State Society'. It looks like that Sci-Fi Channel is starting out with Guns Blazing. And going up against Adult Swim 'Shin-Chan' it looks like they own Monday nights...

    GIS:SSS, Noein, Tokko, and Macross Plus!!? (o_O)

    "Good-bye [AS] and hello Sci-fi's Ani-monday!!" LOL. Seriously, thats just a great line up to start out with. They're gonna be a great competition to [AS] as how [AS] has just finished Eureka 7 and they havent made any announcements of any new anime line ups coming up (that I know of). Instead [AS] already has another 5 [AS] original shows coming up...honestly, I'm not too thrilled about that.

    Guess we'll just have to wait and see...

    I honestly don't know how much it will affect me. I will definitely check out the anime they show on Sci-fi. See if they show any I haven't seen. But I haven't watched Adult Swim in a while because I usually watch all my anime on Youtube or Crunchyroll now (or rent it from Netflix). But if the competion between these to channels leads to more anime being on TV then I will definitely be a happy camper.
