YTV takes a chance with Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal starting June 2

The English theme song for this show is catchy, but pretty bad. I’m warning you before I post it that this is Sonic Colors bad. I wheep for the ears of children when this and Monsuno air back to back.

Zap2it listed the series premiere, but a post by a moderator on YTV’s message board confirms it – Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal will premiere on YTV beginning June 2 at 1PM EST. The series will take the spot of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds in the afternoon anime lineup. Will YTV air the remaining episodes of 5Ds? Probably not, but who knows, though 4Kids (the franchise’s licensor in the west) didn’t dub the entire series.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal is the fifth Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series and follows Yuma, a would be Duel Monsters champion who has the heart, but not necessarily the skills to make his dreams come true. This is when the mysterious spirit named Astral barges into his life and takes Yuma onto a wild trading card game adventure. The series is a lot more Saturday morning-esque than its predecessor, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds which took place in a post-apocalyptic world starring a older protagonist. Zexal on the other hand takes place in the near future, with Yuma being young enough to where schoolyard bullying can happen. Continue reading

Monsuno premieres this Saturday on YTV

Remember Monsuno, the US-Japan co-production that I highlighted a few years ago as a way to bring anime back to North American television? Well, a few months after its February 2012 Nicktoons US premiere (which led me to expect the show would either be picked up by Teletoon, or Nick Canada, not YTV) the show is now heading up North, according to YTV.com’s schedule that is. The series is set to premiere Saturday May 5 at 1:30PM EST in the block of programming I’ve unofficially dubbed the “Super Anime Lineup” featuring the likes of Beyblade Metal Masters, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds, and Power Rangers Super Samurai.

Pokémon The Movie: White – Victini and Zekrom premieres on YTV next Saturday with an all new Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds-less Super Anime Lineup

This marathon already happened, and I forgot to make a post about it... whoops

This is another case of “I already knew this but I’ll hold off on writing a post on it” as schedule wizard Mohji pointed out in our forums, Zap2it listed the YTV premiere of Pokémon The Movie: Black – Victini and Reshiram. I wanted to wait it out until YTV posted their schedule after a a certain debacle. It was a good thing I waited, since it seems Zap2it listed the wrong version of that film to broadcast. They listed the version of the film that was broadcast on Cartoon Network in December, where as YTV.com’s schedule listing has it being the version of the film we were snubbed a theatrical release of. The film premieres this Saturday at 2PM EST, concluding the first broadcast of a retooled Super Anime Lineup. Continue reading
