The Funimation Channel is premiering MoonPhase, Peach Girl, Suzuka, and Black Cat on American digital television on Monday. Four previously announced offerings — Shingu (March 3), Ninja Nonsense (March 8), Record of Lodoss War (March 8), Boogiepop Phantom (March 8) are also starting this week. Several other programs, such as Blue Gender, Dragon Ball, Kodocha, Pandalian, Spiral, Case Closed, Fruits Basket, Negima, Haré+Guu, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Baki the Grappler, Slayers, and Kiddy Grade, are restarting from their first episodes on Monday or early Tuesday morning.
The channel is currently available over-the-air in California's Sacramento area, New York City, and Ohio's Dayton and Columbus areas. It is also available on the Dish Network satellite television service and Verizon's FIOS TV fiber-optic service. The channel is currently the only 24-hour/7-day anime channel in North America, although only New York's WRNN-DT3 station and FIOS TV carry the programming for more than two hours daily.
