In the U.K the Syfy channel has always been a channel to go against the grain. The channel has always seen the potential to screen programmes that appeal to a niche market, they have now acquired some key manga films to be screened on the UK network. 

Every Saturday Syfy will be screening a major manga title starting with this Saturday being Akira.

January 28 - Redline @ 11.10 pm.

The most dangerous and exciting car race in the universe is held only once every five years. And that’s tonight. The competitors are lined up at the starting block.

She will stop at nothing to get on to that podium. In this race, not only is anything possible, but also anything is allowed.

February 4 - Summer Wars @ 11.10 pm.

When timid eleventh-grader and math genius Kenji Koiso is asked by older student and secret crush Natsuki to come with her to her family’s Nagano home for a summer job, he agrees without hesitation. Natsuki’s family, the Jinnouchi clan, dates back to the Muromachi era, and they’ve all come together to celebrate the 90th birthday of the spunky matriarch of the family, Sakae. That’s when Kenji discovers his “summer job” is to pretend to be Natsuki’s fiancé and dance with her at the birthday celebration. As Kenji attempts to keep up with Natsuki’s act around her family, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can’t resist solving. As it turns out, the solution to the mysterious equation causes a hijacking of the social networking site through which most of the world's social and business traffic flows. It’s up to Kenji and his new fake family to put reality back in order.

February 11 - The Wolf Children @ 11.10 pm

Hana is a 19-year-old student who falls in a "fairy-tale like" love with a "wolf man".

At first the family quietly lives in the city trying to hide their wolf heritage, but when the "wolf man" suddenly dies Hana makes the decision to move to a rural town, far from their previous city life.

"The popular story has also been adapted into a successful anime series which has sold over 30,000 copies in the UK alone and now the theatrical promises to bring a whole new audience to this already huge franchise. Set 100 years in the future, what remains of the human population now survives in relative peace behind massive walls erected in defence against the man-eating Titans. That peace is shattered when a Colossal Titan, measuring over 50 meters tall, smashes through the wall and allows a horde of other Titans to enter." Manga Entertainment
