VICELAND UK to Broadcast Anime Limited movies on TV

During the past month and a half we have seen Anime Limited and Viceland team up to bring anime back onto television, now we have been told that there’s more in store!

As discovered by our fellow friends on our forum, Viceland will be broadcasting a couple movies from Anime Limited sometime this month starting on 12th September.

Viceland has already shown a couple anime titles with Cowboy Bebop, Eureka Seven, Samurai Champloo and Tokyo Ghoul. These films were advertised during the Samurai Champloo airing run:

Patema Inverted

Airs Tuesday 12th September at 9:00pm

Patema has lived her whole life underground. Following a catastrophic attempt to harness alternative power sources, her community were driven to settle in a dark, cramped network of tunnels below ground. She roams them by torchlight, dreaming of adventures on the surface.

Age does not fit in comfortably in school or society as a whole. The world he lives in is known as ‘Aiga’, controlled by the tyrant Izamura’s family for generations.

Together – the pair are about to be pulled into something much bigger that will turn their worlds upside-down!

A Letter to Momo

Airs Tuesday 19th September at 9:00pm

The last time Momo saw her father, they had a fight. Now all she has left to remember him by is an incomplete letter penned with the words “Dear Momo,” but nothing more. Moving with her mother to the remote Japanese island of Shio, Momo soon discovers three Yokai living in her attic, a trio of mischievous spirit creatures that only she can see and who create mayhem in the tiny seaside community as she tries desperately to keep them hidden. But these funny monsters have a serious side and may hold the key to helping Momo discover what her father had been trying to tell her.

Perfect Blue

Airs Tuesday 26th September at 10:00pm

Leaving the world of J-pop behind her, Mima Kirigoe begins life as an actress on a crime drama show called Double Blind. When offered a lead role in the show as a rape victim, Mima accepts the role despite reservations from her manager. However, the backlash from fans over her career change and a strange website called ‘Mima’s Room’ written by a fake Mima begin to worry her. When a stalker appears and people involved in Double Blind begin turning up dead and all the evidence pointing to her, Mima is thrown into a state of confusion, madness and paranoia

Directed by the late Satoshi Kon and critically acclaimed as one of the finest examples of an animated thriller, Perfect Blue will leave you shocked and more than a little spooked.

Viceland is available on Sky channel 153 and as part of the NOW TV subscription service. All three of the films listed are also available to own on Blu-ray & DVD from Anime Limited.
