Future Card Buddyfight Premieres On Teletoon Next Week

buddyfightkeyart Almost a year ago I wrote about Future Card Buddyfight. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t expecting to ever write about it again. Japanese TCG manufacturer Bushiroad launched the cross-media property globally last year, with the tie-in anime running premieres through Youtube and other VOD venues. If that strategy wasn’t weird enough for a kids merchandise property, Bushiroad has been providing an English dub produced by Calgary’s Bluewater Studios hours after the Japanese premiere. Now the series is heading to Teletoon, according to Zap2it and the channel’s own schedule. Things are set to kick off on Thursday, January 8th at 7AM. It looks like Teletoon will become Buddyfight‘s first broadcast partner outside of Asia. Continue reading

Ending A 16 Year Run On YTV, Pokémon Heads To Teletoon

It looks like Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal‘s Teletoon premiere was foreshadowing something yet to come. Ending a run that started in 1998, YTV has pulled Pokémon and the rest of its anime programming from its lineup. This includes shows like Beyraiderz, Digimon Fusion, B-Daman Crossfire and the aforementioned Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal. That would usually be bad news but along with Power Rangers: Super Megaforce, most of those shows are moving to Teletoon. Continue reading

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal premieres on Teletoon on Sunday

yugiohzexal

So, this is kind of unexpected. Some of you may recall that Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal premiered on YTV back in June of 2012. That’s not much of a surprise as every previous Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters series aired on the network. What’s a surprise is that Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal begins airing on Teletoon’s English feed tomorrow at 8:00AM EDT. The episode airing is seventy-four, Attack of the Barbarians: Part 1 – which was the first episode under the Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II branding in Japan. Right now it looks like this broadcast will be in addition to YTV’s Friday and Saturday runs of the show. Continue reading

Teletoon’s Fall 2013 highlights features super heroes and annoying oranges

Annoying-Orange-Million-ClonesThis could be the final time I write up a preview of Teletoon’s Fall highlights separately. Surprisingly that may not have anything to do with my general indifference towards the Canadian children’s networks. Some of you may be aware that Astral Media, 50% co-owner of the Teletoon related networks (Teletoon, Teletoon Retro, Cartoon Network Canada and their French feeds) is in the midst of being purchased by Bell Media. As a result of this sale Astral will be selling their 50% share in the Teletoon related businessess to Corus Entertainment, the company that owns the other 50% of the networks. Corus also owns YTV, Treehouse, and Nickelodeon Canada with their press releases typically handled all under a “Corus Kids” umbrella rather than channel specific programming highlights. Assuming Corus integrates the Teletoon networks under that brand they might just be included with the others in the future. Then again Teletoon at Night, and Adult Swim feature some very non-child friendly programming …
