This picture encompasses my thoughts on the matter:

But seriously, it's great to have it back. Toonami was a staple of my childhood and seeing it return like this makes me... well, excited! It's definitely a positive influence for the anime industry as a whole; I sure as hell can say that watching Toonami back in the day influenced me as a person. This promo in particular BLEW MY MIND: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYUM7h4SVsA

The stepping stone towards a ressurrection revolution re-evolution of anime in North America.

A chance to make cleavage on tv a normal thing.

The bridge between Japanamerican international relations. The cultural ambassador of Japan.

A chance to see madoka on American tv and give little girls a bitch slap of horriffic reality to the face.

The window of opportunity to introduce and reevaluate social norms and etiquette.

The excuse to stay home on Saturday nights.

A source of media inspiration and influence to forge new fads among American youth. A seed planted to grow a new generation of Otaku.

A reminder that anything Asian is cool.

A helping hand to English voice actors like Johnny Young Bosch, Crispin Freeman, Luci Christian.

Faster licensing of new anime.

If only we could simulcast the new anime. Surely americans don't mind subtitles on their TVs do they?

dubs...check em'

:awesome:

Didn't watch the latest, but used to enjoy it back in the day. Agree that it would be helpful in getting new stuff licensed faster/on TV faster, and generate new anime fans.

I got most of my anime from Sci-Fi and Blockbuster, cuz most of the stuff that Toonami aired didn't really interest me.

I didn't get into mech anime (with the exception of Eva, which barely counts), for some reason. So that kind of killed off a lot of potential anime for me.

Though I think the amount of anime that appears on YTV now has decreased a lot, so maybe Toonami will be good to generate some more fans.

It definitely has promise. I only watched Deadman and Casshern since they were the only real new shows, but I think Ill follow them both. Hope the block gets some more never before seen stuff down the road [Like Deadman dub].
