Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Japan's Cartoon Network? Not exactly...

JOTX-DTV, branded as TV Tokyo (テレビ東京, Terebi Tōkyō) and often abbreviated as "Teleto" (テレ東, Teretō), a blend of "terebi" and "Tokyo", is Tokyo's smallest television stiation, famous for their specialization in anime. JOTX-TV in Tokyo began broadcasting in 1964, and was originally called "Tokyo 12 Channel" until 1981 when it adopted its current name. Beginning as a non-commercial station offering instructional programs to schools a la America's PBS, it later became a commercial, general-interest/entertainment station and the flagship station of the TXN network, which opened stations in Osaka (TV Osaka), Nagoya (TV Aichi), Okayama (TV Setouchi), Sapporo (TV Hokkaido) and Fukuoka (TVQ) between 1982 and 1991, later adding a satellite/cable station (AT-X) in 1997. Linked to economical newspaper Nikkei, it also focuses on more "alternative" content that isn't picked up by the other networks, including travel and business news.

Some shows are produced by other TXN stations, especially TV Osaka and TV Aichi. Due to the network's small number of affiliates, many of its shows have historically been aired by affiliates of rival networks in smaller cities.
