YTV debuts the final seven episodes of Beyblade: Shogun Steel exclusively online

unairedshogunsteel

When Beywarriors: Beyraiderz began airing on YTV, I mentioned that the western-exclusive Beyblade spinoff had replaced the time slot of the latest mainline show, Beyblade: Shogun Steel. YTV’s broadcast of the show ended prematurely at episode nineteen. At the time, I expected the show to simply go on hiatus while Beyraiderz aired as a promotional tie-in for toys hitting the shelves, but it looks like that won’t be the case. YTV has announced that the final seven episodes of the series will only be available to stream through their website. They’ve already posted the first four episodes to watch. Continue reading

Digimon Fusion is airing on YTV

digimonfusion

In late January, a few blogs associated with Saban Brands’ Ambassador program posted up articles stating that Digimon Fusion, the company’s adaptation of Digimon Xros Wars, would be airing on YTV starting February 28th. I teased that tidbit in I Miss Bionix’s coverage of that recent Pokémon invasion. Ultimately Zap2it, and YTV’s schedule didn’t agree with that premiere date, so I figured things were pushed back. Apparently it was just a single week as it looks like the show premiered on March 7th. Episode 3 premieres this Friday at 7:30AM EDT. Continue reading

Pokémon: Mewtwo – Prologue to Awakening and Pokémon The Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened premiere this Saturday on YTV

Pokemon Movie 16 PosterYTV’s online schedule has confirmed that the network will air Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened, as well as its prequel TV special, Pokémon: Mewtwo – Prologue to Awakening, on February 8th starting at 3:30PM EST. The duo premiered last summer on Japanese TVs, and cinemas before a brief theatrical run in October followed by a Cartoon Network broadcast last month in the US. Leading up to the special broadcast YTV will be airing the final two episodes of the Pokémon Black & White: Adventures in Unova and Beyond TV anime beginning at 2:30PM EST.

Pokémon.com describes the sixteenth feature’s plot as: Continue reading

YTV will premiere B-Daman: Crossfire on September 7th


I was a bit perplexed by some omissions in YTV, and Teletoon’s fall programming highlights this year but didn’t really care enough about the shows to write a post about them. I wasn’t expecting a Canadian rendition of [adult swim]’s Toonami or anything, but seemingly safe bet children’s anime like Digimon: Fusion, B-Daman: Crossfire, and Tenkai Knights were no where to be seen despite pending product and US broadcast launches. It appears that at least one of those is making a debut this side of the border. Internet scheduling giant Zap2it! lists a September 7th broadcast at 1:30PM Eastern by the title of “Battle B-Daman” on YTV. I’m going to assume that the channel will not be airing a 22 minute toy commercial from ten years ago, but rather it’s a mix up for the newest B-Daman series, B-Daman: Crossfire. Crossfire launched in the US on The CW’s Vortexx Saturday morning block on August 17th.

Beyblade: Shogun Steel premieres this Saturday on YTV


As one of the two remaining anime series on YTV, and therefore mainstream Canadian television I guess this is an important thing to note. The next season/series in the Beyblade: Metal ___ reboot launches this Saturday at 11:30AM ET. Rather than a direct followup to Beyblade: Metal Fury, Shogun Steel stars new blader Zyro Hagane with the Metal ___ cast in mentor-ship roles as they’ve been aged up. It’s important to note that this is the final season of the modern Beyblade reboot to air in Japan, but don’t worry as we know Nelvana’s got more original spinoffs on the way. Continue reading

YTV’s Fall 2013 Highlights features a bunch of Nickelodeon content

I’m probably going to stop writing about these soon. YTV will air additional seasons of Mr. Young, Extreme Babysitting, Big Time Rush, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Beyblade, SpongeBob SquarePants, Monsters vs. Aliens, Kung Fu Panda, Legend of Korra, T.U.F.F. Puppy and The Fairly OddParents. On the new acquisitions side, the network has little outside of more Nickelodeon imports. If that’s your thing you can look forward to Sanjay and Craig, See Dad Run, Wendell & Vinnie, The Haunted Hathaways, The Thundermans as well as Sam & Cat. Remember when some of us thought that the addition of Nickelodeon Canada would leave YTV free of that network’s programming? Hahaha … That leaves us with these two world premieres:

Oh-No-Its-an-Alien-Invasion-post

OH NO! It’s an Alien Invasion is a hilarious Home Alone meets War of the Worlds style series for kids, in which a crazy band of partying aliens have invaded earth and hidden all of the planet’s grownups! This would make most kids uneasy, but not Nate; he’s been training for this moment his whole life. He and his Super Wicked Extreme Emergency Team (S.W.E.E.T.) are on the case to take back the world. Operating from their secret headquarters at the Swell-Mart, they must wage a resistance against the zany Brainlings (the Aliens), and find their parents. The animated series is produced by Nelvana Studio and written and developed by Philippe Ivanusic-Vallee and Peter Ricq, part of the creative team behind League of Super Evil.

Nelvana funds more western exclusive Beyblade spinoffs

BeyWarriorsPromo

Despite Metal Fight Beyblade ending in Japan this past January Nelvana will keep the franchise spinning as it has announced two additional series in the franchise, BeyRaiderz Shogun and BeyWarriors Cyborg. This is in addition to the twenty six episodes of Metal Fight Beyblade: Zero-G being dubbed as Beyblade: Shogun Steel. The company gave no plot descriptions for either spinoff but BeyRaiderz Shogun is set for a spring 2014 broadcast with 13 episodes with BeyWarriors Cyborg coming that fall with 26 episodes and two one hour specials. BeyRaiderz Shogun may have been the previously announced second season of last year’s BeyWheelz western spinoff. Hasbro plans on releasing BeyWarriors toys this fall.
