Starting February 22, ScyFy Channel will air two episodes of the 2003 anime every Tuesday night on ScyFy’s anime block, Ani-Monday (now jokingly called Ani-Tuesday when it moved from Monday nights to Tuesday nights). The two episodes will air at 11:00 and 11:30 PM, follows by repeats of Gurren Lagann. This will be the first FUNimation anime to air on ScyFy.

The anime is based on a manga by Daisuke Moriyama (World Embryo), which ran in Dragon Age from November 1998 to June 2004 with 8 volumes. The anime series, which was animated by Gonzo (Vandread, Gate Keepers, Gantz) and directed by Yuu Kou (Giant Killing, Loveless), ran in Japan on Fuji TV from November 2003 to June 2004 with 24 episodes.

In North America, the manga was licensed by ADV Manga, and the anime was previously licensed by ADV Films, but then rescued by FUNimation. In 2006, it aired on Showtime Beyond. The anime and manga follows an organization who hunt demons.

Other anime previously aired on Ani-Monday include Dead Leaves, Appleseed, Descendants of Darkness, El-Hazard, Galaxy Express 999, Ghost in the Shell, Kai Doh Maru, Monster, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Macross Plus, Ninja Scroll, Rave Master, Tokko, and X.
