So yesterday after having a chat to my mate Beego, I was in the mood for a spot of aimless TV watching and traditionally quite over the top Asian entertainment… So instead of going over to “asiangirlsfarting.com” I decided to flick on the ANIMAX channel on DSTV for some epic anime!
Instead of the satisfaction of slow motion sword fights and killing foes with mystical but deadly flower petals, I was met with a blank screen telling me that the channel had been removed on the 31st October- no consulting with the public- nothing!
I was quite bummed really- where the hell am I supposed to watch Takeshi’s Castle and Ninja warrior, or catch up on the absolutely epic anime series Bleach??!!! Apparently the channel will be replace by a “new & exciting” offering from Sony International in February 2011 (please please please, we don’t need ANOTHER Sony Entertainment channel 113).
I really do wish that they would consult the public before adding or taking away channels on DSTV, it really would help!
Bye Bye ANIMAX!!! Thanks for the hours of entertainment! Guess its back to the internet for my fix of anime and crazy Asian programming…
