Anime Network Adds 2 New Illumitoon Shows To Lineup

» News, Industry, Anime | posted by Wai Yung (Wayne) Chim on 08/16/2007 [Discuss]

Adding a healthy dose of sci-fi and adventure to its popular lineup, Anime Network has licensed two new anime series from Illumitoon Entertainment, Ltd. The mecha robot-filled series B’tx and AM Driver are set to premiere on VOD on September 6 and September 9, respectively. Today’s news represents the channel’s continued commitment to provide its viewers with access to Japan’s best anime.

“We are delighted to be partnered with the Anime Network, as they have consistently delivered top-tier anime for the fans and are readily identified as a leader in anime content,” said Barry Watson, CEO of Illumitoon. “We were very happy to add B’tx and AM Driver to the channel’s lineup, and we know that anime fans will be equally pleased.”

B’tx follows the adventures of Teppei, whose plans to reunite with his scientist brother Kotaro are shattered when Kotaro is kidnapped during a conference. While searching for his brother, Teppei encounters a broken mechanical insectoid-like weapon called B’tx, which comes to life due to inadvertent contact with Teppei’s blood. Oddly, the unlikely pair develops a brotherly bond and end up on a quest to save Kotaro.

In AM Driver, the story revolves around the exploits of a young group of warriors, known as AM Drivers, as they battle a dominating empire of machines. In this chilling future, human beings are attacked by creatures called the Bug-chine, which cannot be defeated by normal human weapons. The only hope: AM Drivers, using the latest ‘AM technology’ to try to save the earth.

‘These two series really capture the essence of classic mecha anime, as both are loaded with action, robots and sci-fi twists,’ said Stacy Dodson, Director of Programming and Operations for Anime Network. ‘They will make a great complement to Anime Network’s VOD schedule, and we’re pleased to work with Illumitoon in bringing them to our viewers.’
