Long Live The Heroes

It does not. 1.3 out of 6 is still awesome, but it doesn't mean million.
So a 1.3 means about 325,000 kids watched DBZ Kai.Toonzaki said:Not a Nielson expert, however I think you are referencing the ratings for Kids 6-11. In that instance .1 = 24,700 kids (If it is the HH rating, then .1 = 115,700 people). It is essentially the percentage of people (or demo) who are watching tv at a particular time.
The average ratings for the 6-11 age demo on Nicktoons was 93,000 kids, compared to a total average rating of 0.9% or 225,000 kids for Toonzai that Saturday (Kai itself had approximately 325,000 viewers). Which likely means there are a large number of kids seeing DBZ Kai on Toonzai for the first time.Live + Same Day Ratings Kids Cable Network Averages (000) for Saturday, September 4, 2010, 6am-11pm, ranked by K2-11:

I'm pretty sure it'll be the dub version of Yu-Gi-Oh!, but hopefully I'm wrong. Doesn't look like they have Viz on board anymore though...looks like it's mostly FUNi stuff.Aquarion

-Please do not ask which seasons, dubs, subs...you will see tomorrow!
Toonzaki said:Initially we will have a large portion of content via the Hulu syndication service. We will also have some addition 4Kids episodes which are currently not online. We have a little of the chicken/egg conundrum where partners are waiting for site performance.
We want the support of the entire anime fanbase, however most know where to hunt down their favorite titles (legally hopefully). Toonzaki will expand the audience to those fans who may be a little less "fanatical" but still would enjoy these titles if they discover them. Building upon that success we should be able to expand the scope of the content available here and on partner sites as well.
Do we know if the site goes live at midnight or not? I might watch an episode of 5D's if it's up (and subbed) before I go to sleep.
'Hype' was the wrong word for me to use. In essence, it was a shorthand for what I was truly thinking: what is the point? Save for two of their own titles everything else is available from other (more known) sites. I hope something worthwhile turns things around soon 'cause otherwise I don't really see this being a financially viable enterprise for them. They're likely paying money to sub-license these other titles out from the rights holders...which is going to cost them a pretty penny.
Nope, it'll go live sometime during the day tomorrow.
They've also mentioned drawing the attention of older 4Kids TV/Toonzai viewers, using their own shows as they main draw.
This is how Mark Kirk summed it up in the ANN interview: say you have an 8-year old who loves watching Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's or Sonic X on Toonzai every Saturday. As they grow older, they learn the TV version is edited, so they decide seek out the uncut version and land at Toonzaki. Once there, they learn all about these other awesome cartoons they never knew about before and dive into the huge library of shows. So that's "the point" of the site right now, but as they've mentioned, they want to cater to all fans by adding more exclusive content once the site gets rolling.
Aren't all of those shows being streamed at like other places?
I'm not entire sure I buy Kirk's logic. I should say...don't kids know what Google is? Aren't they going to learn about these things elsewhere?
Does 4Kids really have the patience (have they ever had any?) to keep this sort of enterprise going this long?
