    The last paragraph for the YTV highlights in their "returning shows with new episode ... Spongebob, Transformers Animated, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX". Since YTV aired all of Season One and Two, you kind of have to think this is season three.

    When you say "Fundamental Death of Anime", are you referring to the stuff that barely passes for anime out of Japan, or the late-night anime programming?

    It doesn't even mention YTV's late-night programming, and IIRC that's when they air a lot of the good stuff.

    Unless Corus is planning on spinning off an Anime network... it worked for Teletoon Retro.

    I'm too sad to write stuff out so, read these:

    Bionix gets hosed in July | Zannen, Canada
    YTV releases fall highlights | Zannen, Canada

    And BTW- YTV proposed for a channel called "The Anime Channel" years ago, but hasn't done anything other then get the CRTC's approval last year. Besides if that happens it's still the death of Anime on Canadian TV. Only people who are going to watch a specialty anime channel, are going to be anime fans, therefore not bringing anyone new into the fandom.

    Well, no. They'll bring people who think Anime is shoddy subpar cheaply done merchandising tie-ins into the fandom... and back out again when they get a few years older.

    Still doesn't mean that CN will pick it up. Does it? I always figured we'd get Season 3 somehow. I hope for CN, but at the very least I expected a straight to DVD if all other avenues failed. But yay for getting a good feeling off tis news.

    CN will air it if they've already ponied up the money to make it. Just probably won't air till mid winter early spring, so don't expect them to start touting it till the fall. Looks like an instance of YTV wanting it sooner than that, so they expedited the process for canada similiar to what happened to other TF shows that aired in canada before the US season-wise. Another network could have thrown oodles of cash at CN and Hasbro, but I doubt it. Probably just part of the global exposure that's been going on. And YTV itching to air it sooner than the others.

    Whoa, Beast Machines season 2 deja vu.
