With exception of Naruto Shippuden, all of these should be on adult swim Toonami. I am certain they would boost up the ratings and increase popularity even more than probably are now, especially Tiger & Bunny.

The exact reason (according to Viz at least) is that not all of these shows really could air on Toonami, which is pretty much true given the acquisition budget for Toonami still seems to be pretty low. Though both sides have claimed this won't actually affect the chances of any of these shows airing on Toonami so hopefully we'll see them there someday, though till the block gets a bit more funding (which definently isn't happening anytime soon) I expect it'll most likely remain Funi dominated.

So is Lagrange's dub being premiered on Oct 2nd? Or is it just the titles listed below the video.

No it seems Lagrange and Zetman are premiering later on. Makes sense since both technically aired in Japan this year so the japanese licensors may be making them wait a bit.

Ok that makes more sense, because if they were going to air it at launch that would be a bit odd. Since that's a really short turnabout time from t.v airing in Japan to having a decent English dub.

I might try this out for a month and see how I like it, considering I plan to purchase most of those shows anyway. Plus Idk if i'll have time to watch TV so much these days :/
Really want TFA of Inuyasha, everything else is just meh for me

Damn, at times like these, I wish I had a PS3...

But at least it's good to know this won't affect the chances of these shows premiering on Toonami. I would really love to see InuYasha: The Final Act relive the success of the original InuYasha seasons...

About that, Viz Media apparently has been releasing the dubbed episodes (I think they're dubbed anyway) on their Vizanimeondemand channel on Youtube. For whatever the reason even though I'm subscribed to them and see when they're uploading those episodes, they're not available as soon as they're uploaded. But they have episodes of some of their other shows available on Youtube for $1.99 an episode.

...this is nice and all, but what about people who like English dubbed but watch it with subtitles? Closed caption option or subtitles for the hearing impaired and then we'll talk.

Good to finally have a date for this.

I guess I'll probably try it too since there's a bunch of shows I like in the lineup and I've been really looking forward to the new dubs of Tiger & Bunny and Blue Exorcist (as well as Zetman and Lagrange, and Nura's first two eps were enjoyable back when I saw them fansubbed) and we still don't have any sort of timetable for when those might be coming to BD.

So... are the shows going to be available to watch whenever or will it be a 24/7 stream that works like a TV channel?

Great! So, when will we get this service in the UK? Never? Oh, okay. Thanks.

I keep forgetting that Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne got, or is getting, an English dub. I might want to see that. I know that I read about it before, but it hasn't seemed like a big deal. I was quite surprised that Zetman is getting an English dub. Viz still seems to be kind of bad at handling its anime properties. I know that they're outside of its core competence, but you'd think that they'd be getting better given how they keep trying.

Their home releases are just as strange, they've got stuff that still somehow hasn't been released like that show with the demon detective and a few others and it's still depressing that I bought the first box of Monster and we apparently won't get the rest of that awesome show...I should have taped them while they were on tv, but I figured that since they were dubbed and shown on tv that we'd likely be able to get the discs since it's not like some other shows where they stop because it doesn't sell enough to dub/translate/print the discs, as they were already pretty much made since they finished everything already since they aired the whole show on tv.
