They start the week of 11/15/10. Excited? Yes, Happy Thanksgiving. 🙂

New and exciting things are happening at the channel so keep checking the site for updates and news. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get the latest. If you don’t have our 24/7 HD channel, contact your local video provider and tell them to add it to their lineup. You can also go to our petition site at Get FUNimation Channel and fill in your request there if you are the passive/aggressive type. 😛

Have a great weekend and if you are running the 2010 NYC Marathon, have a great run! I have one more year to go before they can accept me. Just need to apply next year. 🙂

  1. Are the 4 new shows going to be on a weekly or a weekday block?

    • @jlaking – the new shows will appear on a weekly primetime premiere block from Mon – Wed and then repeating over the weekend. Sengoku & Spice and Wolf will repeat eps in the daytime. But TV-MA titles will remain in the evening after 9pm.

  2. I have been really impressed with the new format of the channel. The new shows you guys have been showing are great. I’m really looking forward to corpse princess and spice and wolf. Keep up the good work!

  3. Spice & Wolf is always a welcome pleasure. To bad it’s not Spice & Wolf II.

  4. New shows on the channel make me super happy. Really looking forward to this month now :).
