The BBC have revealed the broadcast date for hit show Heroes. It's due to start Wednesday 25th July at 9pm and is one of those must watch shows.
Why are we posting about an American series on a website that focuses for news for fans of Japan? Well the answer is simple, one of the central story arcs throughout the series focuses on Hiro Nakamura and Ando Masahashi. Hiro is an otaku, he enjoys reading manga and watching sci-fi. Manga even plays a big plot point in the series, but we won't say any more, we pride ourselves on being spoiler free. To be frank it's one of the best geeky TV shows we've seen in years that will be enjoyed by people who like to steer clear of geekdom too.
Although it's already been broadcast on the Sci-Fi Channel in the UK, only viewers with cable or satellite could catch it, so being broadcast on BBC 2 will make the series more mainstream in the UK. A second series of Heroes is in the works, along with a prequel series called Heroes: Origins.
