Anime Simulcast!

I'm sure most of you have seen this, but Viz has licensed the Mago anime and will be simulcasting it! Instead of its Japanese title, it will be called "Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan."

The first episode should be up sometime today, I think, and should be available here. I think. Probably. Hopefully-maybe.

So yay simulcast! I'm not completely sold on the name change though. At Anime Expo's Viz Media panel, they also gave away a couple Mago posters from Japan and a Mago shirt. Ahhhh, I was so jealous of the people who won them!

EDIT:
The first episode is not screening here! I'm not sure if there are any region restrictions on it.

The fact that Viz has licensed it worries me. :/
I'm not wild about the new name, but I totally get why they changed it. Nurarihyon no Mago is so hard to remember.
Makes me wonder if they're going to get the manga soon too. And I wish they had said which site they were putting it on/what time (at least they did say the 5th on one of those releases).
Ah ha~ Thank you!
1- I LOVE YOUR RUBY ICON!!

2- Well,I don't mind a change in the name but I wonder if it could be done a little better...but I could get used to "Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan" over time,to be honest.
As much as I appreciate the fact that they thought this was worth working on, I worry that they can't even maintain a semblance of the original title. Actually my biggest concern is that they won't bother explaining / staying true to all the folkore-related details that makes the series so rich, even WORSE because this will be simulcast so it's not like they've had time to seriously work on it. I fear them brushing over most of it. Of course, if they prove me wrong (and I WANT THEM TO), they'll be my heroes and I'll support the licensing wholeheartedly XD Either way, I'm very interested to see how they do.
It's restricted in our region (Philippines). Oh well, I'm not expecting anyway.
