I believe I've mentioned before my reasoning for ignoring smaller channels and networks that significantly feature anime; their relatively tiny viewer base for one, and the plain-sighted obviousness of anime being on an "Anime Network" for two.

Actually, I had kind of wondered about that. I get AZN, which is always showing some older anime or another and figured you didn't list them because even they seem to have difficulty providing reliable scheduling information about their own shows. But it makes sense that you can't dig up listings for obscure networks. As one of the 6 people that actually watches AZN, though, I can keep hoping. Anime smallmouth

I'm looking forward to Blood+, having read so much about it on the forums here. I hope it lives up to the hype.

Dude, what's with the absence of Beck Mongolian Chop Squad on MuchMusic(in Canada) from the list? Especially since tonight in 2.5 Hours a Marathon of the first 5 Episodes will air.

I also watch AZN and wish that there was a good schedule for their shows. Their own schedule on their site is regularly wrong, so there isn't much you can do to see what will be on. The schedule listed on my digital cable is usually more acurate, but not always, and you can only see a few days in advance anyway.

What is AZN? What anime does it feature?

Blood+. Actually. Wasn't. Bad. It really surprises me that I can say that, since I disliked Hellsing and had no interest in Trinity Blood. I though since I didn't like on of the "best" "vampire shows" (Hellsing), I wouldn't like any others, but it seems I was wrong. I think what puts me off from them is when they start brining in all kinds of stupid catholicism things, which was far more central to the anime in Trinity Blood than in Hellsing, but both had those themes, while Blood+ is absent so far of them.

You're not going to find any serious biblical refrences in Blood+. They're not really traditional vampires.

A gaffe! A simpleminded miscalculation! A grievous error! A mistake, to be sure.

Plus I mean I live as geographically far away from Canada as possible while still being in the United States.
