Buffy Season 6 to begin in Japan. Also Angel will begin Season 3 (Japanese font support required).
This isn't really much news, but I thought it might be nice to point out (Please delete if it's inappropriate). This is the first time these seasons will be showing in Japan. These links are to the official Japanese sites. Just in case you wanted to check out Buffy and Angel in Japanese (no idea how they translate the quips and stuff...but the Buffy site has a nice Whedon-bio).
Both seasons will start this Sunday, 9/14; Buffy at 9:00 p.m., Angel at 10:00 p.m. From what I hear, Buffy has a devoted following in Japan, although it's not strong (only Season 1 is out on DVD here).
Also, the Japanese title is "Buffy ~The Loving Cross~," whereas Angel is just Angel. This continues a trend of Fox renaming shows for different markets (Ally McBeal = Ally My Love).
