Sounds great,however there are few concerns about this:

1. I don't have IC, which I don't mind,
2. They'll have frequent commercials, and
3. IC is infamous for airing medicinal products that NO ONE needs.

If don't do frequent commercials and/or air medicinal products, tell me if I'm wrong.

Frequent commericals?

IC actually airs commercials at the end of those eyecatchers (except if an anime series is an OVA, then commercials are a bit unexpected).

But do they still air medicinal commercials in all of commercial breaks or do they have regular commercials?

Yes, they do or they sometimes air those 1-888 [ Insert Charity here] commercials. But, IC does a fine job airing their anime. I for one, have no problem with them.

Yea. International Channel sometimes show anime in its dubbed and subbed formats. In rare times, they actually show stuff RAW (like what they did to Fushigi Yuugi Eikoden Confused ).

I can't tell you how many times I've gripped to i-ch about the way they treat their anime much less we the viewers, They would wait untill the last second to let you know when and what they were going to show, but at least they show every series and OVA unedited and as compleat as their distributor will, allow.

But finally they release a real list of future shows, this is a great list of shows, Iam really looking forward to these. Now we need CN/AS to let us see a list this good.

Saw ep1 of Now and Then, Here and There yesterday. Seen the Japanese dub before so not used to the English voices. Wink But I'm really happy to watch it again.

On IC's website it's rated TVPG. There isn't any grotesque violence but the theme and content later one is certainly very mature.

Has anyone else caught Black Jack on Tuesday nights@ 8pm~9pm on i-ch, the pre-cgi anime alone is worth watching, even the use of still-shot and moving camera work is art. And the show even has story-lines that are worth following!
