Naruto Shippuden Starts Airing Tonight on Disney XD
Posted October 28, 2009on:
Disney’s attempt to bring in the young male demographic begins in earnest tonight, as the first four episodes of Naruto Shippuden air on the Disney 😄 channel from 8:30 to 10:30 (check your local listings).
What I’m interested in is how they’ll air the show going forward. They can’t possibly air four episodes a week; the dubbing process just isn’t fast enough. In terms of official releases, Viz has only released up through episode 8 so far, so a regular weekly slot seems likely. But that wouldn’t give Naruto Shippuden very much initial exposure on the station, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens with the scheduling.
