    Re: 1 & Only Neon Alley Thread

    It's a good question, but I don't know why they would say that they were "teaming up with Funimation" in their newsletter if they weren't actually collaborating with them. Why would they get the rights from Toei only to say they were teaming up with Funimation? I guess it's possible if they're just saying that because Funimation produced the dub for the show, but it still doesn't really make a lot of sense if that's the reason they worded it that way.

      Great news!

      Glad to see One Piece will finally air on TV again, even if it is not in the traditional fashion! Hopefully this will lead more people to considering buying subscriptions for Neon Alley! They had my money the first day but now they have it as long as they are on the air with this acquisition!

        ONE PIECE Licensor Toei Animation Will Be Content Partner For
        New Console-Based 24-Hour Anime Channel Launching On PS3
        And Playstation Network

        San Francisco, CA, August 21, 2012 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest publisher, distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, continues the digital anime convergence as it announces that Toei Animation, with FUNimation┬« Entertainment acting as the agent, has licensed the celebrated pirate anime action/adventure series, ONE PIECE, for broadcast on Neon Alley, the new 24-hour anime channel VIZ Media launching this Fall exclusively to the Playstation Network and the PS3 game console. Episodes to air on Neon Alley will be presented
        uncut and with dubbed English dialogue.

        Neon Alley, featuring the world’s best anime titles all dubbed and uncut in English and presented in HD (when available), is the first platform designed to be studio agnostic, with a diverse array of titles from other leading anime producers and distributors. Programming will include weekly exclusive premieres of hit titles fans love, alongside a mix of new, cutting edge titles they didn’t know they were missing. Neon Alley will be a subscription-based service, subsidized with limited commercial advertising to keep the launch price to consumers at a low $6.99 per month.

        ONE PIECE is based on a massively popular manga (graphic novel) series created by Eiichiro Oda, that is also published in North America by VIZ Media (rated ‘T’ for Teens). In the venerable anime adventure, Monkey D. Luffy refuses to let anyone or anything stand in the way of his quest to become king of all pirates. With a course charted for the treacherous waters of the Grand Line, this is one captain who'll never drop anchor until he's claimed the greatest treasure on Earth – the Legendary One Piece!

              If I had to guess, then I'd say Tuesday's newsletter will contain the schedule for at least the month of October. Though when they mentioned the schedule last, they said they had it down for "the fall" so who knows, maybe it'll be a schedule through the end of the year.

              Either way, I'm extremely curious. I'll be there when it starts.

                I'm curious to see what the lineup is going to be. We know the shows that will be available, but the episodes that are available is still yet to be determined.

                  This is looking way too epic. But I really don't think I can justify paying for a 24/7 service when I'll probably only be able to catch bits and pieces here and there, and since it's not on demand, I probably won't be able to just see all the stuff I care about. I really cannot believe that they already have Zetman dubbed.

                      They said at Comic Con that their will be a 1 week free trial, at least that is what someone who was at the panel reported.

                        Website's updated and you can now register and see the schedule. I don't see the app on the Playstation Store yet though it'll probably be up soon. Already signed up for the free trial though so I'll be testing it out this evening.

                            Ah. Images weren't coming up in my email so I didn't see that. Works out better for me though since I'll be out for most of the day anyway.

                                Whenever Grace Chen decides to do the playstation store update, hopefully its early today and not one of those late 11pm ones :/
