If the previous bit of anime info was a little disappointing due to the rather limited availability then this next bit of anime news should make you feel a little better. The official TechTV Anime Unleashed website is now up with a listing of their initial titles they’ll be showing on that channel. You can look forward to catching Crest of the Stars, Serial Experiment Lain, Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Betterman and Silent Mobius.
The ads on the channel have only been showing Crest of the Stars and it didn’t look too compelling to me, but then it does appear to be fairly old. Of the rest I’m most familiar with Serial Experiment Lain as I have about half of that series on DVD and keep intending to buy the rest of it. If nothing else, it’s emphasis on technology and the ‘wired’ makes it a good fit, though it’s slow pace may leave some folks cold.
I’m looking forward to seeing how well TechTV handles their anime lineup and how much of a success it is. Though I still think they should expand Extended Play to a full hour. Not that it has anything to do with anime, but I thought I’d toss it in here none the less.
