VOD Fridays – FUNimation Channel (8/13)
Happy Triskaidekaphobia! To some, the #13 is a magic number. To others, just another number. Today it just happens to be a VOD refresh day. Lots of things are cooking at the channel. Good things. The channel and FUNimation Entertainment are pretty excited about what’s ahead for next month. Two things are for certain – expansion and HD. xD
We have chosen the winners of our anime prize packs and HDTV set and just waiting for them to confirm before we can announce. You can still try to win an anime prize pack each month by visiting the Get FUNimation Channel site. Just fill in your details and you are in it to win it! You are also helping us expand the channel on more systems.
Last week, Comcast is undergoing some changes to their server structure that houses all VOD content. Some cities will show less content than others for now but as they increase capacity, the offerings will also increase. We will re-air some series that were affected at a later date.
Here’s what’s up on Comcast VOD:
- Corpse Princess eps 1 – 4 (episode 1 is a Freeview)
- Soul Eater eps 50 – 51
- My Bride is a Mermaid eps 10 – 13
- Case Closed ep 92
- Nana ep 19
- Honey and Clover ep 8
- Baccano! ep 11
- Tsubasa Chronicle eps 43 – 44
- Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid eps 1 – 2
- Monster ep 30
- Bamboo Blade ep 20
- Kenichi eps 19 – 24 (series will re-air in Oct)
- Escaflowne eps 19 – 20
To see what’s up on the linear, 24/7 channel – jump to the FUNimation Channel site for the grid. We will drop little hints here and there on the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter regarding the changes ahead. We want to congratulate our 1,000th Facebook person – Kimaly Ann Tarter from Arkansas. Kimaly – you will receive a gift from the channel soon. 🙂 Imagine what we could give away to the 2,000th person on Facebook. And we’re almost about to reach 1,000 followers on Twitter. We’ll try to put together something nice for that 1,000th Twitter follower.
I owe you guys pics. When I get a moment, I’ll post some stuff from cons and HQ.
