eigoMANGA Television Programming Headed To National Television

TUN (The U Network), a new national cable network catering toward university students will begin broadcasting eigoMANGAs television program, ANIME MIX on its network starting Sept. 6, 2004.

ANIME MIX is a weekly anime news magazine television program that incorporates a variety of topics targeting the anime/manga industry in the U.S. The show features the latest in anime news, live event coverage and exclusive interviews with leading industry professionals. ANIME MIX was originally broadcast on San Francisco local cable television for three consecutive years. ANIME MIX on TUN is eigoMANGAs first initiative to produce original television programming for national broadcast.

We felt that ANIME MIX was most appropriate on The U Network because the show is catered towards a college audience, claims Austin Osueke, ceo of eigoMANGA and exec producer of ANIME MIX. The format for the original ANIME MIX was most appealing to anime fans who were apart of university anime clubs. They always gave us the most contributing comments and critiques on what they want to watch when it comes to a show about the anime industry. With the ANIME MIX, were trying to kill two birds with one stone; reach the experienced anime fan audience and reach the trendsetters of the mainstream and both of these groups are college students.
