Mezzo DSA replaces Wolf's Rain on RaptureTV

In a statement earlier this evening, UK digital TV channel Rapture TV have confirmed that Mezzo DSA will replace Wolf's Rain, starting Thursday the 6th of July (presumably at 8:30pm).

In addition to this, the article also explains that Rapture have been able to "tie it (Mezzo DSA) in with some FEATURE LENGTH titles from the same stable, more on this later!" Mezzo DSA is released in the UK by ADV, so this could well mean that Rapture have secured rights to air the likes of Spriggan and Voices of a Distant Star- though obviously, consider this is a rumour until anything is confirmed.

Ah well. As long as the feature length titles don't include the prequel, Mezzo Forte, then the general public won't be stunned by the pointless hardcore sex scenes like I was.

I think that You're Under Arrest the movie, Spriggan and Queen Emeraldas will be among the likely candidates as the feature length titles.

Mezzo DSA wasn't my preferred choice, but that's behind us now, lets get behind Rapture and support them 100%. It's great that we have a channel like them willing to consistently broadcast anime- this is just what anime needed in the UK; to get a foot hold and establish itself with a growing channel rather than risk it all with the big channels and inevitably get axed for not immediately raking in 100,000+ viewers.

It's great to see that they have picked up some anime movies too- these should be well worth a gander :)

:D Great news I would say. Just got to wonder about all the possible shows they could end up airing if they take alot of titles from ADV UK. The future looks bright :wink:

Mezzo isn't such a bad choice really. It's not my preference either but the 'girls with guns' formula and the aesthetic side of things ought to win it quite a few fans.

It also has potential to get ADV out of the rough patch they've seem to have got themelves into just lately.

Certainly my preferred choice over Mahoromatic. I really liked Mezzo and think it has a lot going for it whereas I found Mahoromatic to be a little... bland.

I like harem shows usually since they are a lot of fun but when they don't work they fail in a big way and Mahoro was that for me.

Great news.

They said that they were going to give it a 'promotional push', i wonder what is meant by that... hopefully it means on other channels other than their own.

Even if i'm not completely enthusiastic about their choice i will still tune in and give them my support and i might just be surprised, and i'm certainly interested to see what feature films they have in line

oh, I ain't really a big fan of crime action anime, but i'll give it a try. Might get rapture tv to get more anime. Then, they can have bigger anime shows. I'm think they should dump others like g@mer, sportswork and other crap, and leave the rapture music and anime. Wait a min, whats the point of having rapture music, when people rather go to mtv, kiss and other music channel. Just make rapture tv a big anime channel

I think Rapture chose Mezzo DSA as the anime for the summer and wait til Autumn to show a well known yet new anime series

Well, rapture maybe a music/dance channel. But, theres mtv and kiss, g@mer is alright, but its too boring to watch compared to my old game shows like pxg and gamer tv. The olny stuff that makes rapture tv so popular is anime that not a lot of other channels can't offer. Because they always kiddies or cut/edited version. What happened if all anime is move to a saturday night call anime saturday. All anime rolled into one day from 8:00pm to 4:30pm, when rapture get so popular and known. Thats my idea, some of you think its stupid, some might think its good because you want to be chillin on the saturday night with watching anime like FMA, mezzo, wolf rain, maybe even anime movies. Saturday would be great for like that. Its the least a anime fan wants

What do you mean, I didnt talk bull this time. I'm praising rapture tv because they best at anime, theres no other channel that don't show anime as good or often as rapture tv. And I popped up with an idea to share, my ideas. Look, i might made a mistake on my other topic on adult swim and i did talk bull **** about it, but this isn't bull ****, its a good idea, Ramen89. Wouldn't you like to be siting down on a sofa from 8:00pm to 4:30am [don't know if anyone going to stay up that long for 8 hours 30 mins of anime madness] chilling on your sofa, watching your anime favorites. I would til 12:00, then theres people who slept through the day and like some gothic, bloody anime or bleeding hentai [though whens it going to ship in fully in the uk, its just as dirty as porn. though i ain't bothered], thats problem solved, because there will be anime for all people's taste. I think I made my point here
