Chiller TV has launched a new anime block they're calling "Anime Wednesdays". Their first lineup was announced Monday and it started airing last night, so it kind of caught folks by surprise. Other than a lone post about it on their website, neither Chiller nor FUNimation have mentioned the block yet.

Chiller is focused on supernatural / horror programming and their anime lineup reflects that. Their current lineup is:
12:00am - Is This a Zombie?
12:30am - Tokyo Majin
1:00am - Devil May Cry
1:30am - Black Blood Brothers
Not a stellar lineup in terms of newness, but it works with the theme they're going with and having seen 3 of those 4, they should work well airing together. (Though, Tokyo Majin, DMC and Black Blood Brothers are more action oriented while I don't believe Is This a Zombie? is) All of these shows are licensed by FUNimation and during the block, promos for the Tokyo Ghoul DVD/Blu-ray set were advertised.
It's pretty cool to see another anime block on American TV besides Toonami, even if Chiller is a lesser known channel. Hopefully they'll be successful enough to last longer then [C]-Control's run on Pivot from 2013.
