Full Story
Press Release as follows:

eigoMANGA TV: eigoMANGA Television Programming Headed To National Television

SAN FRANCISCO – TUN (The U Network), a new national cable network catering towards university students will begin broadcasting eigoMANGA's television program, ANIME MIX on its network starting September 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 US by providing the latest in unbiased anime news, live event coverage, and exclusive interviews with leading industry professionals. ANIME MIX was originally broadcasted on San Francisco local cable television for three consecutive years. ANIME MIX on TUN is eigoMANGA's first initiative to produce original television programming for national broadcast.

The first set of episodes of ANIME MIX will cover anime events and various university oriented anime events." 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 executive 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, we're trying to kill two birds with one stone; reach the experienced anime fan audience and reach 'the trendsetters' of the mainstream – both of these groups are college students."
