Distributor agnosticism has me interested in this, though I guess it depends on what platforms its available on (hopefully iOS as well as game consoles per se) and which distributors take advantage of it.

So it wont be just Viz titles and it will have dub premieres of InuYasha and Naruto along with the Beserk movies and Tiger & Bunny? Well I'm sold. I hope they don't limit it to one console forever. I want to be able to stream this from my computer as well.

If you don't see the value in this then you probably don't give a crap about dubs and that's fine. You get the Viz shows for free if you prefer subs and Neon Alley just isn't for you. No reason to stream the subs on this service if you can watch them on-demand for free. Though I suppose you can't necessarily do it from your TV so that's a reasonable criticism regarding not including subbed anime.

I'll be interested in seeing how this pans out but I feel like Viz would probably be better off simply offering dubs on Hulu Plus and Netflix.

I wonder what game console Viz Media will have Neon Alley on. I hope it will be on the Wii or the PS3 because those are the two game consoles I own. Wink

Odds are it'll be for Xbox since the other two systems don't have much of an app library. But since its a pay service with commercials and dub only I'll have to pass.
