Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V season 3 on Teletoon, season 1 on Télétoon

The third and final season of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V is set to hit Teletoon. TV listing services TV Passport and Zap2it, as well as the channel’s own schedule, indicate episode 100 will air on Saturday, July 22nd at 1PM EST. Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V usually premieres on Teletoon on Fridays, but episode 51, “Kings vs. Dragons” is slated to air on the 21st.

As of this writing, none of the schedules are listing a title for episode 100. However, the currently airing Italian dub calls it, “Un Benvenuto Bellicoso”, which I’m translating as a “A Rough Welcoming.” I’ll update this post once an official title goes live. Teletoon’s schedule lists episode 100 as, “A Warlike Welcome.” 101 is listed as “Realm of the Cipher Dragon” and 102 as “Rush to Revenge.” Continue reading

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.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V Premieres Tomorrow on Teletoon

While everyone is giddy about the Yu-Gi-Oh! anniversary film starring Seto Kaiba, it’s important to remember that a new TV spinoff is almost here. As in it airs tomorrow at 7AM and again on Saturday at 1PM on Teletoon. Yeah, not much of a head’s up on that one.

So, what is Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V?

YTV pulls Monsuno: Combat Chaos and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

ygozexal-main

As of right now June 2 is final day Monsuno: Combat Chaos and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal aired on YTV. Neither Zap2it, nor YTV’s own schedule list any additional broadcast times for the two series. Their 1PM and 1:30PM Saturday slots have both been replaced by episodes of the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. Monsuno: Combat Chaos ended at episode 31, with Zexal hitting episode 47. YTV began broadcasting Monsuno in May of 2012, with Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal following the next month. This leaves Beyblade: Metal Fury, and Pokémon: Black & White: Adventures in Unova as the only anime related programming on the network. It’s unclear if this is just a temporary removal with a return planned in the fall, or something more.

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
