Ah, that's kind of nifty. What shows will they be playing?
I probably won't watch it though. I buy dvds or watch all of my anime on my computer nowadays. Toonami did play a key role in getting my anime hobby in gear though, so it was important to me back in the late 90s.
Seems like they are going to keep an action oriented lineup like they mostly used to. Though they do have some newer material. Brotherhood, Casshern sins and Deadman Wonderland especially are relatively new. They also keep the appeal of the older Toonami crowd with Bebop and GitS.
Doesn't look like a bad lineup but a lineup that's purely revolves around action wouldn't appeal to me much. I wouldn't expect to see any cutesy shows but more comedy would be nice. Either way I probably wouldn't be following it as my anime watching tastes and methods have changed drastically since I used to watch Toonami.
Thanks for the reply though! I appreciate it. It was interesting.
No problem Regulus! I started watching their two new shows and they are somewhat dark. Deadman Wonderland is pretty twisted and Casshern Sins is about robots and the end of the world and just feels eerie. They're still entertaining to keep up with though.
I'm sure they could be solid shows. I just don't pick up action or horror titles very often.
My bread and butter for anime is mainly Comedy, Romance, and Slice o'life these days. Though I'll mix in something outside that range here and there. I still enjoy a good scifi series and military oriented stuff once in awhile.
Yeah it's one of the most senseless shows I've ever seen. I think it's geared towards hyperactive people like me who love the fast and crazy.
On a side note, Bobobo is the most random anime I ever watched. It was actually too weird for me and I needed breaks from it as it went on. Sometimes it was funny but other times I literally said "What the Hell?"
True. I usually say it when I'm truly dumbfounded and it takes a lot to surprise me. I usually say "oh god" or "oh my god" at plot twists. I try to get into the anime as much as I can, really immerse myself in the world. It's great fun.
