We’re always looking for ways to deliver PlayStation gamers the entertainment you crave. Hot off the presses from Comic-Con is news that we will be the exclusive launch partner for VIZ Media’s Neon Alley – a 24-hour anime channel – to PlayStation Network in Fall 2012. Neon Alley will be a subscription-based service available to all PS3 owners in the U.S. and Canada for $6.99 per month. Neon Alley will include a mix of action, adventure, science fiction, supernatural, fantasy, and horror anime, all uncut and dubbed in English, and presented in HD (when available), including include blockbuster anime titles like Naruto Shippuden, Inuyasha: The Final Act, and Death Note, as well as new titles such as Tiger & Bunny, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc, Zetman, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, plus original content that provides news and behind-the-scenes access for anime and manga fans.

That’s not all, though. It was recently unveiled that the Crunchyroll App will be coming to PSN, streaming directly from your PS3 console. Current subscribers will be able to log in with their existing account to access all the benefits, including streaming the episodes of popular anime shows such as Naruto Shippuden, Shugo Chara, Hunter X Hunter, Sket Dance, and Korean drama shows like Dr. Jing, Jumong, The King 2 Hearts and more. And if you’re not a member yet – you can also sign up for a 30-day free trial directly from your PS3. The packages include Anime membership (all anime titles and simulcasts for $6.95 per month), Drama membership (all drama titles and simulcasts for $6.95 per month), or All-Access membership (all titles and simulcasts for $11.95 per month).

So that’s it – great anime content will be streaming directly to your PS3 soon! What are your thoughts on a dedicated anime channel on PSN? Share your feedback with us in the comments below.

I'll just combo break and mention I'd be a bit cautious considering they mentioned Naruto twice.

Yeah, but Naruto is listed under both services (Neon Alley and Crunchyroll) so it's not really that much of an issue. Popular anime tends to spread as far as possible in order to rake in the most amount of cash. My concern is that Neon Alley is going to be English Dub only.

I actually generally prefer English Dub - Mostly because I tend to be painting/gaming whilst having Anime (Usually Gundam stuff) in the background/to one side, so I need to be able to follow the story as best I can be sound alone, otherwise I'll have to keep rewinding =P

Naruto is actually not bad. The dub is though, you should feel bad about yourself for liking the dub.

The quality of dubs varies widely. There's an A list of voice actors out there, and when a dub has that list, it'll be good. The first good dub I heard was Gundam Wing, where they managed to match voice actors to personalities quite well.

Interestingly, the VA crew of MLP:FIM also does a lot of anime work.

I remember really liking Ranma's first season dub, if only because I remember how much I really disliked dubs in general during that time frame.

I want Adult Swim to show Outlaw Star again. That used to be their goto show. Like Cowboy Bebop.

I really enjoyed Outlaw Star. And maybe it was because it was one of my first shows I actively watched, I don't recall the dub being bad.

In case anyone missed it, the PS3 app is out and they just released one for the Samsung smart TV thing.
