TV Azteca adds more anime

Mexico’s TV Azteca announced the premiere of “Sailor Moon” on Monday, August 7 as part of a new anime programming block that includes other Japanese productions such as “Super Campeones” and “Pokemon”.

The content will air on Azteca 7 during the afternoon slot. Starting at 3.30 PM the channel will broadcast “Super Campeones”, an hour later will arrive “Sailor Moon” and then “Pokemon”, the successful series that turns 20 years of its premiere in Japan.

“Sailor Moon” was created by Naoko Takeuchi and tells the story of Usagi Tsukino, a high school girl who meets a black cat with a crescent moon mark on her forehead. Since then, she will become “Sailor Moon” and will have to save the earth from the Dark Kingdom.

Last July, Televisa began broadcasting through Channel 5 “Los caballeros del zodíaco” (Saint Seiya), so that anime became the new attraction for both Mexican free-to-air channels.
