I didn't see any other threads started but I did read on Neon Alley's facebook that some new shows were coming up in the next few months and I figured this thread couldnt hurt to start.

To ensure Neon becomes a success and expands to other devices (i.e. Xbox 360, PC streaming, etc) I personally think acquiring exclusive anime premieres is the way to continue moving. Offer Animes no other outlets currently can..Nura Rise of the Yokai Clan, Blue Exorcist, Inuyasha: the Final Act, and Tiger & Bunny are prime examples.


My personal dub premiere suggestions to acquire:
-Reborn!
-Skull Man
-Accel World
-Sword Art Online
-Shirokuma Cafe
-Eureka Seven: AO
-Aoi Sekai no Chushin de
-Psycho Pass
-11 eyes

It's obvious to me Accel World and K are down the pipeline already. But from Viz I would like to see Monster, Honey and Clover and Hikaru No Go who needs a dvd release.

From Funi I would like Samurai Champloo, Deadman Wonderland maybe the original FullMetalAlchemist

If they can take any more acquisitions from AoA that they didn't dub, I'd love to see Garden of sinners, if Aniplex lets em.

Pretty sure their coming anyway but I'll go ahead and recommend Accel World and K as well. I'd like to recommend Reborn as well but not sure what the situation is with that.

I know it isn't likely to happen, but I'd like to see Case Closed and Lupin III from FUNimation. From Viz, I'd like to see Ranma 1/2.

They no longer have the rights to the series, they let it go OOP no too long ago and I doubt a reprint is coming

Thanks for your suggestions! We just had a preliminary acquisitions meeting so this is helping a ton.

Keep all those suggestions coming!

I'm not sure on what's going on with Reborn! either but some developing news sometime soon regarding it would be great to hear. You guys have some nice suggestions coming, I noticed after I started this thread Neon Alley asked us on facebook about what some of our suggestions for the network should be for Spring 2013, I posted some of the same I posted here but if you guys wanna help out to make sure we get heard on Neon's FB page that would be great too!

So do you have any idea as to when you'll be announcing the new acquisitions for Spring? I know it probably won't be any time soon but I'm a bit curious.

Not sure either but I'm also just as curious! I do agree with Spaceman that we can certainly expect to see Zetman apart of the lineup, personally IMHO Zetman,The Skull Man, and Hitman! would definitely cause Neon Alley to attract thousands more of subscribers and would make some fatal additions to the lineup...and if some point they introduce Hellsing? oh man it would be GAME OVER for hulu and others..

I can confirm that for sure. Zetman is in our Neon Alley commercial Very Happy

Oh and to answer Shinobi-san. No contracts have been signed for Spring but I'll add what I can to the next newsletter for you.

My personal suggestion for a show would be Toriko. It's a Shonen Jump title just like One Piece, so it would appeal to the same type of audience. And it just recently got a dub for the first 48-50 episodes, too, so it would last you guys quite a while if you showed 1-2 episodes a week.

Plus it's about food. EVERYBODY loves food. Razz
