[size=20]Deltora Quest Anime to Run on New U.S. Channel The Hub[/size]
posted on 2010-05-18 01:48 EDT
U.S. premiere of TV series based on Emily Rodda’s fantasy novels

The Hub, the new television network being launched by the Discovery Channel’s parent company and the Hasbro toy company, has announced on Monday that it will run the American premiere of the Deltora Quest fantasy anime series. The 52-episode series is based off a series of novels by Australian writer Emily Rodda.

The series “tells the saga of The Shadow Lord, an evil sorcerer who has taken over the kingdom of Deltora by destroying a magical object known as The Belt of Deltora. Throughout the course of the series, young warrior Lief, his mentor Barda and young Jasmine travel around the land of Deltora to return the seven gems to the belt and save the kingdom.”

DCI Los Angeles, the U.S. division of Dentsu, Inc., had already announced in February that it is running the series on the Cartoon Network in Australia and New Zealand this spring. The anime ran in Japan from 2007 to 2008.

Discovery Communications and Hasbro will launch The Hub on October 10 in 60 million homes.

I think I have the first book still. I remember liking it, but not bothering to get the rest because I was lazy.

And people keep saying anime on tv is dead.

sheesh!!!

It looks interesting, so I will have to check it out. But do we really need another Nickelodeon clone? Remember when the Discovery Networks were about actually learning things? I guess there isn’t enough money in that anymore.

I am thinking most of the shows will either have a life lesson in episode or PSA’s after like the old 80’s shows. That teach valuable lessons.
Such as.

On Comcast VOD at least the Hub VOD is live under kids and the first two episodes of Deltora Quest are on it. Dub sound pretty good so far.

You’re right, it should be the original GI JOE and Transformers as Prime and the new GI JOE are not ready yet I believe they should start in DEC 2010. Since it’s run by Hasbro I expect more older shows to show up. Maybe we will get something “Truly Outrageous” in the future. I Noticed they are also running things like The Wonder Years, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, and Doogie Howser MD. The great news is the 60’s Batman is going to be on there. Looks like we got a kids TV station with stuff for all ages mixed in. I’m loving this. BATMAN!

It’s the 1984 cartoon. The Hub had a commercial for their classic hero block called HuBOOM! Starts at 11:30 PM. Why so late?

The Hub calls it Transformers Generation 1 so Prime is something different.

Oh and it looks like a flood of MORE shows are coming. This is incredible.
(Upcoming programming)

To stay on topic, the first episode of Deltora Quest was great. :slight_smile:
