It had a full lineup apparently, including Tenchi, DBZ (fight against Cell), Gundam Wing, Outlaw Star, and more. I am so sad I missed this.

Maybe it's just me, but the review not using the default Shepard looks very, very odd.

I accidentally caught it being streamed online. Never having cable, I never saw too much of the original toonami and lineup, but I still got a vicarious hit of nostalgia.

They know we want it back, but no.. King of the Hill for 2 hours. Does anyone even like that show? I thought it was retarded when it was on Fox. CN needs to buy another channel and just name it Toonami so kids of today can see the awesomeness that is/was.

I rather like it. Considering it gets fairly high ratings, quite a few folks seem to agree. I liked Toonami, but I don't think the two are by any means mutually exclusive. There are quite a few options to bring back Toonami that also keep KotH. Like killing the repeats of the programming block every night, or removing all those damn non-cartoon shows from Cartoon Network, or even bringing back Toonami as a one night a week block like it was originally.


On April 2, Adult Swim posted a message to their Twitter page, simply stating "Want it back? Let us know. #BringBackToonami".

Yeah, I like King of the Hill too. It's not my favorite show, but I find it entertaining. It does take a while to warm up to though. A lot of the characters seem pretty boring at first, before you get to know them.

I hate pretty much everything about stereotypical Texas, so I pretty much detest the show.

I don't know if it was the creator's intention or not (although I'm guessing it was), but the show seems to be a satire to me. Pointing out all the ridiculous things about Texas and the people who live there, and exaggerating them. I'm not a big fan of hicks in general, no matter where they're from, so watching hicks get made fun of helps my enjoyment of the show.

I remember when Moltar was the host of Toonami. Ahh, the good ol' days.

On a side note, if Wikipedia is to be believed Toonami is coming back on April 22, 2012 12am Est. Hopefully they are getting rid of all that garbage that takes up most of Adult Swims lineup. (although being on Saturday I doubt that will happen)

Political satire. Most of the shows are usually pitting Hank's social conservative views against an interloper's liberalism. I'd like to say that's my interpretation, but all I did was checked the wiki. The show bored me to tears and I never put any thought into it. Really, it's only ever on when I want background noise without a need to focus on anything specific.

I don't think that's true, Wikipedia isn't showing that date any more.

So I'm half way listening/watching tv when Loiter Squad comes on. For the record, I'm not particularly fond of any of the live action shows on Cartoon Network, but when you put a black guy dressed as a cowboy on a horse, and his only line is "I stole this," I'm left laughing my ass off. Well done.

Tyler is awesome. Singlehandedly made me want to watch his show.

I'm all for Tom, but if it's just the same cycle of shows with new host segments then it's not exactly an improvement.

Think I read they are getting new shows to run but the press release on ANN was vague so it could just mean new shows that were not on when it was on air. Well here's to hoping.

The Crunchyroll release said that Adult Swim was "developing original anime programming" for Toonami. That leaves me hoping it'll be something completely new.

Here is a post from Anime News Network concerning the new Toonami lineup, and everything that pertains to it.

Quote:
Adult Swim, the cable and satellite network that is paired with Cartoon Network, is listing on its schedule that it will air the Deadman Wonderland and Casshern Sins television anime series on Sunday, May 27 at 12:30 a.m. and 1:00 a.m., respectively. The schedule lists that both series will then air again at 3:30 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.

Jason DeMarco, former Toonami producer and recently promoted vice president of strategic marketing and promotions for Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, confirmed this schedule on Monday via his Twitter account.

Adult Swim had announced last Wednesday that it would bring back its Toonami programming block starting on Saturday, May 26.

[Via Toonami Podcast]

Update: Adult Swim's entire anime schedule for early morning May 27 is as follows:

12:00 a.m. - Bleach
12:30 a.m. - Deadman Wonderland
1:00 a.m. - Casshern Sins
1:30 a.m. - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
2:00 a.m. - Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG
2:30 a.m. - Cowboy Bebop

The schedule then repeats between 3:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.

DeMarco added that Toonami will not be showing Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, and similar titles since "the rights to those shows are owned by our competition or are out of our price range." He continued, "Something you should know about THIS Toonami: We have very, very little $$. This experiment will need ratings success to receive more funding for new shows, more [mascot character] Tom animation, etc. I'm thankful for the $$ we've gotten, but it isn't a lot."

DeMarco also clarified Adult Swim's May 16 press release, which said that the network is developing "new original anime programming" for Toonami's return. Toonami will not have original titles created specifically for the programming block, "just new acquisitions." DeMarco said that he personally "love[s] One Piece and would love to see it on CN again" along with Gundam Wing. Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, Fairy Tail, and Inuyasha: The Final Act are some of the "many shows we've been looking at" or discussed.

DeMarco confirmed that Steven Blum will reprise his role of Tom, which "will be an updated hi-res version of Tom 3.0" aboard a slightly different but almost identical version of the spaceship Absolution. However, the character Sara will not appear for now ("costs too much to make"), and Peter Cullen will not be the voice of the block's promos due to his busy work schedule. The anime titles will keep their theme songs, and Toonami "will make our own 'pre' intros."

That's a fairly solid lineup.

Yeah the two new shows are strong shows and worth watching. Though Casshern Sins animation style might turn some people away but I liked it. And Deadman wonder land while short was still interesting. Hope it does well enough to go though with getting some of the shows they were discussing.

I'd rather they redo One Piece and replace Bleach with it, and I think Gundam Wing has been done to death for us, but there's a whole new generation that might enjoy it so it's a wash for me. The rest of the shows are solid as well, though Inuyasha is another one I could do without.

The new line up is nice with Casshern and Deadman. I'll certainly watch it in the hopes that the other shows will slowly be replaced with stuff that hasn't aired entirely a million times over.

I'd love to see a one piece dub that doesn't suck, and/or at least hasn't been totally brutalized by the censors. I'm sort of in agreement with gundam wing, though I could probably rewatch it, since the last time I watched it was subbed, and I haven't actually seen it dubbed in ages. Definitely a @#%^ no for inuyasha, but a strong @#%^ yes for fairy tail. Also, while I'm 100% in favor of Panty&Stocking with Garterbelt, because it's one of the most outrageously funny shows I've watched in years, there's absolutely no way in @#%^ they could play that sh*t on @#%^ing adult swim without censoring it to death, let alone regular CN. The FCC would have a field day with that show...

I stayed up to watch Deadman and Casshern, 2 shows I knew nothing about when they came on (not a fan of Bleach, I've seen Full Metal and Bepop, and never got into the Ghost in the Shell). I liked them. Deadman was a little weird, but I guess it more will be understood with more shows. Casshern was neat and I enjoy the style it is done in.
