Man, I remember coming home from school and flipping on the tv. Only to watch a block of epicness before me.









GOD DAMN those were some great shows…

I didn’t watch these shows (DBZ looks intolerable to me, and I don’t even know what Gundam, FMA and SGT Frog are), so I can’t exactly rejoice with you guys. But I’m happy for you.

@badsitrep

Apt, that.

Apparently, The Boondocks is getting another season as well. I’ve yet to watch Season 3, but I owned the entire collection of comics and saw all of Season 1 and 2.


But I’m really excited about this. Toonami is the only reason I watch anime today. My cousin loved Dragonball Z and wanted me to watch it. The only place I could watch it given being busy in elementary and middle school was on Toonami. While waiting for Dragonball Z, I watched Tenchi Muyo, Gundam (wasn’t as big of a fan of that,) Sailor Moon (parents didn’t like that too much…good thing they don’t know about ponies…) Rurouni Kenshin, and plenty of others that came on when the line up moved to Saturdays.

It’s going to be good. I really hope that the hype gets to be big enough in the next several days to get Cartoon Network/Adult Swim some really nice viewership for their efforts. I’m pretty sure that the outcry of support from fans for Steve Blum/T.O.M. and Toonami was a big part of Toonami’s return. I’d like to see the people involved rewarded for that.

This is a great day for all of us. Man, woman, and anything in between. Toonami, the greatest thing to come from our childhood, will return. And on that day, of May 26, 2012, we will rejoice and cry out in joy. This has, and will be the greatest day in not only American, but World History as well.

You don’t know Gundam? Gundam?!?

Pray god has mercy on your soul….

Anyways, toonami was awesome. I loved samuri jack! Between phineas and ferb, MLP, Korra, and this, I’m only gonna watch kids channels.

I’ve heard of Gundam, and I know it’s an anime, and that’s the extent of my knowledge.
Samurai Jack is on Toonami? It’s considered anime?
Anyway, I’ll be leaving now…

Okay, step one of my +1s has been fulfiled, now give me a channel, dammmmmit!

I am watching it now. I’ve never watched Bleach (too much to catch up on,) but the current show is pretty interesting.

Also, if I had the proper gaming system, I’d get “I am Alive” just because T.O.M. gave it a decent review.
 
Thank you, Adult Swim. I’d be watching a rerun of SportsCenter if it wasn’t for you.

@Verbose

You watching ‘’Deadman Wonderland’’?

May 27, 2012 at 12:50AM EDT

Well, yeah. I was. I like the concept of it, so I’ll certainly keep tuning in for that. Not so sure about this show though. Not sure what’s going on, but I haven’t really been paying attention either.

It’ll be nice to see Cowboy Bebop and Fullmetal Alchemist. I’ve seen Cowboy Bebop plenty of times before, but I’ve never watched Fullmetal Alchemist (the version before Brotherhood or this one) before, so I’m looking forward to that.
 
I’m just hoping that the ratings increase enough over the next several months of Saturdays to keep it on the air.

Despite their limited budget, I think tonight’s schedule and presentation was worth the wait. Even if the block had obvious flaws, the original feeling was still present, although mixed with Adult Swim’s aim at action-oriented programming. Toonami is back bitches!

Toonami’s going to come back to Australia. We Aussies just have to wait.
