They need to put up a web based streaming version of their channel so everyone can view them...

Ghost Slayers will be the latest role Steve Blum as a lead character. He tends to be the tough guys (Spike, Orochimaru, Shishio, etc).

Since they're showing Toward the Terra and Rocket Girls, I guess everything will be the subs.
Wonder if they'll also have a dub block for the shows that do have them, especially Ghost Slayers, some time, like they did with the Geneon shows.

Arcwave I do agree with you on that point. Although I'm in SF where we do have it Seattle has a higher concentration of Japanese than most other locations in the U.S. The probable reason is that although there are many Japanese in Seattle, the total number of Asians is less than that of SF or NY.

Regardless, I'm pretty happy about getting to see my gateway Anime (Scrapped Princess) broadcast on T.V., also Planetes looks interesting even if it is geared towards a younger audience so I'll give that a shot.

Planetes is definitely not aimed at a younger audience than Scrapped Princess.

If I had IATV I would be shitting myself right now. I've always wanted to see Rocket Girls and Toward the Terra. Also, Planetes is one of favorite series ever so I'm glad it's getting airplay at last.

IATV is almost all subs. I think the unreleased Kyo Kara Maoh are/will be aired in both forms and I remember seeing Figure 17 aired in English. I usually don't watch broadcasted anime since Comcast looks so awful compared to DVDs, but I think I'll check out Ghost Slayers Ayashi to get a preview (much like I did for the first couple Blood+ episodes) of the series. I assume BE has all intentions of releasing Ayashi on DVD in the near future.

Yeah, with the Geneon titles, it was subs on Tuesday, dubs on Wednesday and the rest of the week.
But all those titles had both, but with the Bandai titles, since TTE and RG don't have dubs, and these airing on Wednesday, I'm guessing they're gonna skip out airing any of them dubbed.

Nice line-up there. They managed to put in two series on my top 10 list (Scrapped Princess and Toward the Terra) as well as another I respect greatly (Planetes).
