Angelic Layer


It depends on what WB wants to license.


Also keep in mind that The WB is owned by Time-Warner which, of course, owns Cartoon Network.

So, this could be a fallout of CN’s Toonami licenses. Something that was maybe tacked on to enhance a deal for a more recent property.

That’s actually a good possibility. It could also be a bundle with one of the children’s anime that Cartoon Network is showing as well. It just doesn’t seem to be likely that ADV still has it, not only due to its age, but the fact that it is only streaming on The WB. An ADV show would likely be streaming on other sites as well, such as TAN or Amazon.


I loved this series.
It’s got a nice solid story and plot along with an awesome soundtrack, what more could I ask for.[/quote]

I bawled my eyes out like a little girl , when her and her mom finally reunite in the last episode.


I never did get to finish this show. One of the things that I do remember seeing, however, was a rare ADV show where Andy McAvin wasn’t playing a villain. However, he was playing an eccentric genius who had a penchant for underaged girls.

He was to fighting dolls what Dr. Rockzo was to glam rock, since we’re talking about Cartoon Network lol. Even though CN, or more aptly AS, was cool with showing us a crazy rocker who was all about underaged girls I don’t think that they’d be cool with showing us “Wiggly Icchan”.

And that’s a tragedy because it was pretty funny if I do say so myself.

I do wish Sentai/Maiden could have retained/reacquired the old ADV stuff as all the non-Funimation companies seem to be dropping the ball with theirs (eg:Discotek, Nozomi) and Funi has been pretty hit-'n-miss with its rescue releases. Now Angelic Layer has made its way to a website of a channel that I didn’t think existed any longer lol. Maybe I’m getting it confused with UPN… :silly: :silly:


Both the WB and UPB shut down. A good chunk of their old affiliates became stations for the CW. It wasn’t technically a merger, because FCC regulations forbid the merger of broadcast networks, but that’s in effect what it was. The highest rated shows from, and a few critical favorites with so-so ratings, like Veronica Mars, moved to the CW.

However, Warner Brothers has keep their we site active and uses it to stream older shows. They also offer shows for digital download through iTunes and other sites.


That might explain why I’m not really up on the subject as I’ve been trying to repress everything about the CW as everything I’ve seen on it has been for the Twilight demographic. I’m not in that demo. Well, to be fair, some of the things I’ve been forced to see on it are more “hunger games” demo than twilight and those are almost watchable. Almost :wink:

Whoever has the rights to angelic layer and is streaming it is already leaps and bounds above disco and Nozomi on the rescue release front as I don’t believe that either is streaming all of its rescues. If they are it is news to me. If disco is then I call shenanigans as, having once again seen one of their low-quality printings of Goldenboy, they bad better not have the money to be streaming.


I own the ADV box set and loved the show in English.

seeing and they used to be ADV I am not supprised to hear its here.
