Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V season 2 premieres tomorrow on Teletoon

Tomato head is back! Almost an exact year ago, Teletoon premiered Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, and now its second season is about to debut on the channel. Following a brief hiatus, Teletoon’s website states new episodes will resume on the channel tomorrow, Friday, July 21 at 8PM EST, with episode 50, “Dueling Declan.” An encore run will then follow Saturday at 1PM EST.

Zap2it and other on-screen TV guides have listed a new addition to Teletoon’s Saturday afternoon lineup, and it’s the Japanese sensation Yo-Kai Watch! Finding itself on the back third of an unbranded Saturday action block, Level-5’s story about a world of mischievous monsters is set for an October 3rd premiere at 2PM EDT.

So, what is Yo-Kai Watch? Dentsu Entertainment, the show’s western handler, describes it as the following:

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

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

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

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.
