Hitman Reborn Season 4 and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Season 4 also set to air next month
The Tagalog anime channel HEROtv will premiere Needless, the Broken Blade movies, and the fourth seasons of Hitman Reborn and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX next month, according to the latest schedule posted on the SkyCable website.
In the near future, mankind has suffered from a Third World War, leaving extreme damage all over and forced mankind to become even more distinct from their species. The world was at chaos and from this chaos comes a new species: “Needless”. The Needless are humans who have contracted a “disease” as humans may call them, and allow them to wield extraordinary powers far superior to any mankind. Their abilities include Telekinesis, elemental powers, gravity control, adaptation, radioactive release and all manners of scientific impossibility. (Anime News Network)
Needless will premiere on August 10 (Wednesday) and will air Weekdays at 03:30 pm, with repeats the same day at 10:00am and the next day at 06:00am, replacing Katekyo Hitman Reborn – Season 3 and Special A.
The series will also air on Weekends starting August 20 (Saturday) at 12:00am, 05:30am, 11:00am and 07:00pm, replacing Devil May Cry and The Legend of Ne Zha. It is not clear at this point whether this weekend airing is a rerun or a continuation of the weekday episodes.
The inhabitants of the continent of Cruzon are born with the ability to freely control quartz. Technology based on this power allows them to perform a great multitude of tasks such as shoot projectiles and pilot mobile suits (called Golems in this society). Rygart Arrow is an un-sorcerer, a rare individual who is unable to levitate even the smallest crystal. Living with his brother on a farm, he receives a letter from an old friend, Hodr, the current king. Close companion of the king and queen when they were students at Assam Military School, Arrow is informed that a war is about to occur. Hodr called him because an ancient type of Golem has been found in a mining shaft. No one has been able to move it and Queen Sigyn, an expert engineer, suspects that maybe an un-sorcerer might be the key to activate it. (Anime News Network)
