On-demand service offers 10 anime titles, including three “latest” titles from Japan.
Pan-regional anime channel ANIMAX Asia has beefed-up its video on-demand (VOD) service on Malaysian satellite service Astro this October.
The service now offers 10 anime titles, which includes titles airing on the main channel like Kamisama Kiss and Hyouka, as well as never-before aired titles such as Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid, BTOOOM!, and Jormungand.
Also offered on the service are three (3) new titles that had aired just recently in Japan, such as Brothers Conflict, Hyperdimension Neptunia, and Mushibugyo. Popular titles such Toradora! and D.Gray-man are also available on the service.
According to the promotional materials, the service cost twelve Malaysian Ringgit (MYR12) or about one-hundred sixty-two pesos (PhP162), but according to our sources who are familiar with the service, the price vary per episode & per series.
Also, according to the ANIMAX On-demand microsite, they also plan to add My Bride is a Mermaid (Seto no Hanayome), Arcana Famiglia, Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions (Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!), and My Little Monster (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun), which is currently airing on ANIMAX every Thursday to Friday nights at 11:00pm MNL.
No specific date has been set when will the service add the new titles.
ANIMAX On-demand is the anime channel’s video on-demand service, available on Malaysian direct-to-home (DTH) satellite service Astro.
It was launched during the Comic Fiesta event in Kuala Lumpur last December, where they screened Kamisama Kiss (recently aired last month), My Little Monster (premiered last week), Skip Beat!, and Toradora!.
For the past few months, it offered titles that were never before aired in Asia, such as Shinryaku! Ika Musume, The Third: The Girl with The Blue Eye (The Third: Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo), The Knight in the Area (Area no Kishi), Neo Angelique, and Miracle Train – Ouedo-sen e Youkoso.
So far, there is no word from ANIMAX Asia if some of the titles offered on the VOD service will be aired on the main channel itself.
