Now if only DirecTV would do something. But, this is a good thing since more people can enjoy anime.
The VOD service that FUNi will have is going to be the “World’s Best Anime” series of shows they chose. I don’t have a complete list, but I know it includes things such as xxxHolic and Ouran High Host Club.
Maybe they will get more new anime fans and rejuvenate the industry here in the US. FUNi is already releasing anime in smaller sets to decrease cost, so people can’t use the “I don’t have money to buy anime, so I only download” excuse anymore. And by supporting the channel, they are giving more money to FUNi.
