TH Update - Bleach licensed by Viz

Now showing on Ani-Pock Anime:

Rizelmine Episode 8 [Download/Watch]
Bleach Episode 31 [Download/Watch]
Pita Ten Episode 10 [Download/Watch]

Ironically, the image for TH update might need to change as Bleach has been oficialy licensed by Viz.

Viz Media has informed us that they have "secured from worldwide licensors, TV Tokyo Corporation and Shueisha Inc., the television, home video and merchandising rights to Shonen Jump's Bleach in the Americas, Europe and Oceania."

Viz is the Bleach master licensor and expects to announce television broadcast and other licensing partners "shortly." John Easum, executive vice president of Viz Media, stated, "Working together with Viz Media B.V. in Europe, we look forward to making Bleach a global success.”

No specifics about the home video release are available yet. (ANN)

Anime shown on Ani-Pock must be unlisenced and thus with Viz's announcement, this online showing must come to an end.

Thank you to the people who emailed me about this! (Yes I do read the emails, I just don't get a chance to answer all of them ^^) Ani-Pock is comittited to bring you great legal anime episodes when possible.

Now a Japanese Street Magic video:

Also thanks to Torazo for pointing out last weeks anime links were 1 off. Fixed on this entry.

Why is all the good animes alwas get licenced? Like Naruto. Naruto was beter in japanese. In english he sounds like a girl. hope Bleach sounds good. And if you know where will they show it?

Because all they want is money =(... and more money. is selling Naruto/Bleach other anime DVD's in Japanese audio w/English subs.

No I don't know which TV stations will carry it.

Eww! Viz!
Darn that Trish... Soon everyone is going to sound like Ranma :(
I'm not even sure if they even finished putting out Maison Ikkoku yet :P
Although I do have to admit... when it comes to dubbing I have to say in my opinion they're the best.

Wow...this is a tough one. Most good animes have been licensed already, it's not fair. =(

Wolf's Rain...*tear*

I'd bet odds it'll end up on Adult Swim... at least I hope so. there's too much "blood" in this to end up on Toonami without SERIOUS editing.

as to a successor.... I saw something, I'll have to search for it.... dammit, it had a guy with wings, and a revolver or a .45.... I do NOT remember the name...

I haven't listen to all the bleach episode, but I enjoy this serie (well, more because I could have some summaries from my sister ^^')

For an other serie, I propose Matentei Loki Ragnarock (but maybe it's more apropriate when a serie like Pita Ten will finish X3)

As for a shonen anime, what would you think of Soukyu no Fafner (Fafner of the axure sky or Dead agressor) It's a mix of evangelion and Thunderbird, some can think, but I don't think so...and the graphic are from the wonderful Hirai Hisashi (Gundam Seed/Seed Destiny)

It's an idea like an other..and i would be surprised if it's already licensed

(would you excuse my poor english u.u)
