Who the hell actually gets Razer? They shove it in the random theme packs on cable and satellite. *sighs* I don't even want the bloody theme pack it comes in, and I really don't feel like paying $2.99 a month for the individual channel just for Trinity Blood. I'd rather rent it, so I can watch when I want.

I like the idea of pay-per-view anime on demand - not on a predefined time schedule. I'd be watching FMA on YTV right now, except I'm 19, and have better things to do on my Friday night and I am recordable setbox-less.

This is more just me ranting right now, please to ignore.

Finally. I've been wanting to watch Samurai 7 for a long time. They really did pick a good time to start this too; now that it's summertime, those BIONIX shows just won't be enough to fill our extra time each week anymore...

Oh yes indeed.

I'll be contacting my digital cable provider and adding this one to my package.

Happy...happy....joy...joy Wink

Wow good deal lucky for the folks up north, I really wish that Basilik would air on AS and also Samurai 7 since I bet I would be really into that series. Oh well netflix will have to be savior I guess.
Till next time,

They would pick a channel that nobody watches. Unfortunately, that becomes low ratings for the anime. Fortunately, once one channel carries something there's a better chance other channels will. It's a CHUM owned station, and they usually recycle their material throughout their network so there's a chance it could appear on MuchMusic or even CityTV.

I've never actually bought one of those extra channels before. If it's a reasonable price a month then it's quite worth it for 3 series and i'm glad they're repeating it so often. I just hope they'll get other anime series after its done too.

I get Razer through my digital cable provider (Videotron), and thankfully I don't have to pay extra for it.

Okay well after watching Samurai 7, Basilisk, Trinity Blood for the first time. I have to say Razer offically kicks ass now, but only on those four days. Also the three shows are totally AWESOME. Very happy Razer got the shows.

I am now proud to be Canadian. This make 3 or 4 series in the that have a Canadian premier before an American one (Basilsk, Trinity Blood, GSD and i think I heard talk of another one but I'm not sure)

I must say though (this is not to spite those who don't get it) Basilisk and Trinity Blood are amazing! Samurai 7 seems decent; nothing to capture my attention but I've heard the first episode is a drag but the second really picks up so I'll stick it out for a few weeks.

On a different note, a totally random one at that, does anyone else think FUNi sould change it's name? I mean come on, to say that I'm a fan of FUNimation productions makes me fell less than half my age and some of what they licence (speed grapher, blue gender) shouldn't be viewed by minors in the first place. My point is the content of much of what they licence does not fit the name "FUNimation". Not that it matters. This is just a random rant.
