If it's popular, I wonder if they'll try putting shows like Hellsing, Blood-C, or Tokyo Ghoul on there.

So all FUNimation shows. More anime on TV isn't a bad thing I guess, and those appear to be good choices.

I'll give it 6 months before it hits the chopping block.

Is This A Zombie is one of those rare harems that works for me, but what the heck were they thinking?

Someone needs to e-mail them or something.

I mean, unless they knew it was gonna be a mostly comedic series, but that just confuses me even more.

Well you've got me interested. I'll definitely try to watch Is This A Zombie. The others I may see what they're like and go from there.

I wouldn't mind another anime block on TV though. It would be cool if this was successful and things like Hellsing Ultimate, C-Control (this aired on Pivot at some random ass slot in the middle of the night), Claymore, Darker than Black, and so on started airing too.

Of all the horror anime out there, they picked this garbage.

Yeah, bad choices. Is that all they could get or something? I don't even like horror and I can think of about 20 better horror anime than that (based on heaving heard comments from horror fans).

They should put something like Baccano, something with a good story. This stuff seems like it would make people head the opposite direction whenever they hear "anime".

Also Death Parade. Le Chevalier D'eon, if FUNi didn't drop that. Seriously, that Zombie thing covers just about every bad stereotype of anime. Hey, if you need zombies, try Sankarea?

Even Steins;Gate... not exactly horror (though it has great creepy atmosphere a lot of times), but it has a great story.

Oh wow. I know Shiki has a slow start and all, but surely that would have been a better "horror" selection than Is this a Zombie.
