New info: Chrno Crusade NOT ending at ep18

Ok, I know I was the one who provided the bad news that Chrno Crusade's slot will be taken over in April and hence Moonphase speculated that it would be ending at ep18 on air. This is now NOT TRUE! (YAY!!!!!)

While the timeslot is indeed being taken over, from ep19 onwards Chrno Crusade will be moving to Galaxy Railway's slot on Wednesdays (it currently airs on Mondays) since GR is ending at ep26.

This is great news and probably means all 24 episodes will air on FujiTV. I guess they've decided to change their ways, or Chrno's ratings are satisfactory for them.

Anime producers...well, the backers of anime production are too chicken to experiment with OVA these days so instead, they opt for uber late-night TV broadcast.

That's why the seemingly more "experimental" series air around then.

24:30 or better yet, I love it when the time is 26:30 or some insane thing like that!
Geez, where the heck is 26:00 on a 24 hour clock?

With over 60 anime shows airing per week in Japan, you have limited places where anime can be placed. Shows that are "proven" to be a hit (manga sales, etc) are given priority by the TV studios for better "golden time" slots. That, and the amount who sponsors these shows.

You have shows like Inuyasha, Detective Conan, Doraemon, Naruto and One Piece which show regularly at the better "6-8PM" timeslots on a major network in weekdays. Why? Because they are backed by major corporations which knows that these anime will sell.

All the rest of the anime are shoved off into obscure timeslots and local UHF stations. Only people who would want to watch will, but you are not going to see a regular person who has school/work the next day to be watching this. Nor does the TV studio - they just don't see that these anime will ever get the ratings they hope for. Why waste a good timeslot for something that will never get a rating over 2% (the bare minimum threshold for Media Research ratings to being a "profitable" show)? Why waste valuable network space in the first place when alternative channels like UHF, BS satellite, and CS satellite networks exists?

Hence: "More anime doesn't necessarily mean 'more anime' in general." What you end up is a severe shortage of timeslots and channels that they are shoved into obscure places. The anime makers have no control over what time they want to show their anime - the TV studios choose what timeslots are available.

I am glad they decided that. I was really worried when they said they are not going to show the whole thing on tv cause Chrno Crusade=one of my fav anime at the moment.

I guess what must be remembered about Japanese TV is that normally they don't have 200 channels like we do in America. Obviously if you go and get a satellite dish Jap ppl still can go and have hundreds of channels but most people don't. Besides, they still have to show their news, sport, game shows, and brilliant Jap soap opras, so really anime does not usually get first piority.

It really makes you wonder... I assume that, since these shows keep getting produced, they must at least make their money back in merchandise and DVD sales. In other words, it sounds like, unless you've got a "major hit" on your hands, the best you can hope for is to break even and *maybe* make a small profit. That's a pretty dismal predicament for the smaller studios... sounds like most of the entertainment world these days. I'm glad that the anime market hasn't totally turned into "Hollywood" quite yet, where potential sales is pretty much the only factor that decides whether or something gets made or not. It's probably going to end up that way, though...

i think, the strange timeslots are not that much of a problem for people, who want to watch a series, they like. they have videorecorders in japan too. but i guess, since it is japan, they don't even have video recorders but only dvd-recorders that can record each and every show on every channel each day.

According to the latest news, the old Chrno timeslot will be taken over by GANTZ, another GONZO anime based on a manga (hopefully they won't slaughter the story for that one... Not that there's much of a story to begin with)

heh, I'm pretty confident that they can't slaughter the story of GANTZ, since it's practically non-existent to begin with. I just hope they can recreate all those blood and violence and nudity in the manga intact... but I doubt it.

Wink New time for Chrno Crusade

At the end of Chrno Crusade episode 18, it stated that the next episode would be shown on Wednesday 14 April from 3:28am.

Do not despair loyal fans!

The anime still continues, even though most of us can't understand much of what's going on......

Still, I hope this is some consolation to others out there.

It's nice to know that there are more than 18 episodes but shock to know that there are only 24 episodes. Really like this series and hope there will at least 50 episodes.
