The Guardian have an interesting article that many anime fans have pondered for ages – Why is anime invisible on British TV? It explains the general attitude to anime in the UK.
Along with cinemas being good ambassadors for anime, it mentions that most anime is screened as TV stations doing a Japan season, or the odd Ghibli movie here and there.
It also covers the closure of Anime Central, the issues around censorship, along with the place most people first discovered anime on TV - Late night screenings.
Rather than being an article pondering, it’s actually researched, interviewing author Jonathan Clements and the staff at Orbital Comics.
