    I always loved the shit on late at night. Right when I got into anime. I havent seen the shows and movies I saw on sci fi back then anytime else. A lot of them were pretty good too.

    I've recently seen anime on the scifi channel late at night. Dunno if it's weird obscure anime though

    TBS aired it numerous times in 1993 and 1994. That's where I first saw it.

    Yes. Sci-Fi DID recently bring back anime as MeanieMe mentioned before.

    Starz has been showing some really good titles within the last few weeks.

    I was able to catch Full Metal Alchemist: Conquerer of Shamballa, GITS:SAC Solid State Society, and Karas. All were pretty enterainining in their own quirky sort of way.

    I think Aria was played on there too. the sci fi channel and the local PBS station -which played tenchi, evangelion, and several other good series- are got me hooked.

    They're showing a really good show about the history of Anime relating to Hollywood movies.

    If you have cable tv (Starz) it's a pretty insightful show.
