Animeism

Animeism (Japanese: アニメイズム, Hepburn: Animeizumu) is a Japanese late night anime programming block airing on MBS. The block was established in October 2006 with a Thursday night/Friday morning schedule, until April 2015, when it switched to a Friday night/Saturday morning schedule. The block currently airs two series back to back which are co-produced by MBS.

The block initially launched in October 2006 as a 30-minute programming block in order to broadcast anime titles which were co-produced by MBS, beginning with Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. The programming block later expanded to a one-hour block in April 2011. In April 2012, MBS relaunched the programming block as Animeism. In April 2015, the network reorganised the Animeism block from a Thursday night/Friday morning schedule to a Friday night/Saturday morning schedule, with MBS chief producer Hirō Maruyama stating that the change was done in order to prevent conflicts with Kansai TV's broadcast of noitaminA.[1]

From June 2017 to January 2019, Animeism signed a deal with Amazon to stream their series exclusively on Prime Video worldwide, with Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul and Altair: A Record of Battles becoming the first titles exclusive to Prime Video on June 29, 2017.[2] In January 2019, the streaming deal was no longer in effect worldwide, with Prime Video only exclusively streaming titles in Japan only.[3][4]

On March 8, 2019, MBS introduced the Super Animeism programming block, which expands the Animeism block by a half-hour starting from July 2019.[5]

On March 23, 2019, it was announced at AnimeJapan 2019 that MBS, Kodansha, and DMM Pictures formed a two-year partnership to co-produce anime titles for the block, adapting works from Kodansha published manga or creating original works into anime, with Domestic Girlfriend being the first title produced through the partnership.[6]
