Animidnight Gets Even Darker

Starz Edge's Animidnight Adds More Anime - Anime News Network

Premium cable channel Starz's Action Channel has in the past run the HELLSING anime TV series a few times on its ANIMIDNIGHT umbrella show, which runs at midnight (duh) on Friday nights (now on Starz Edge).  Next year, it will be running the newer, more faithful, and far nastier incarnation of the story, HELLSING ULTIMATE; along with fellow Geneon kill-em-up, BLACK LAGOON. 

I'm encouraged by both deals.  The American branch of Geneon continues to languish in reorganization limbo; and playing these Geneon properties on TV should encourage other companies to pick up their licenses if Geneon can't do it itself.
