Geneon Entertainment senior VP business development Katsuhiko Tsurumoto says, "ImaginAsian TV is a great destination for Geneon content casual fans appreciate the pop-culture sensibility executed by ImaginAsian, and core anime fans value seeing the original language versions that ImaginAsian can provide so well!?


In Elemental Gelade after a routine raid, the rookie sky pirate Cou finds a most unusual cargo in his mates‘ cargo hold: Ren, an "Edel Reid", a race prized by humans for granting special combat power to their partners through "Reacting". He quickly discovers, however, that Ren is even more prized than he expected. The pirate ship is visited by three members of the Edel Reid Complete Protection Agency "Arc Aire", who try to purchase her. When Cou refuses, the ship is suddenly attacked by a mysterious force, and Cou‘s captain charges him with Ren‘s protection. Thus starts Cou and Ren‘s "journey of love adventure."


In Kyo Kara Maoh Yuri Shibuya was living a pretty normal life. That changed the day he was dunked into a toilet after an attempt to save a classmate from a gang of bullies. Instead of just getting a good soaking, he‘s pulled in. The next thing he knows, he‘s in a world that vaguely resembles medieval Europe . If that‘s not odd enough, he‘s told that he is to be the next Maoh, the King of the Mazoku, who are coexisting not-so-peacefully with the humans in this world. Now, Yuri has to deal with trying to become a good Maoh, while at the same time attempting to adapt to this land‘s customs and culture, all in a world where the tension between the humans and Mazoku is reaching its peak.


The protagonist of Law of Ueki is Junior high school student Kousuke Ueki. He is picked by a God Candidate, Koba-sen, to participate in a competition where people battle out to become God. Embodied with the ability to turn garbage into trees, Kousuke will be competing against other junior high school students in this selection. This sets the premise for the earth-friendly battle where the students will pit their powers against the rest.


In Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo Albert, the son of a renowned general from Paris , makes a journey with his friend Franz. During his travels, he meets an immensely wealthy nobleman named The Count of Monte Cristo. Living in luxurious hotels, surrounded by beautiful women, and strong bodyguards, the charming but enigmatic count fascinates Albert. Albert invites the count to join the high society of Paris . However, unknown to Albert, his father had once framed the count and took the count‘s fianc?e as his own.
