It's good for attracting new fans to anime i guess. For the seasoned anime watcher who has had the internet at his disposal for years its useless....

YES. SO MUCH...YES. Im assuming they chose Cash and Deadman because theres enough episodes to last them long enough to get more money to air another show. Soul Eater has enough. I mean if they can show all 50 Eureka Seven eps (twice, i might add) they can get SOUL EATER which at least matches the "WTF" and "derp" shit that Adult swim seems to enjoy.

in that case, what they REALLY need is bakemonogatari.

They played my favorite GITS:SAC 2nd Gig episode last week, that kid is such a loser...

I don't know how long this new iteration will or can hold out, the guy running the thing says they don't really have money. You kinda need money to make things worthwhile. The timeslot doesn't do it any favors as well. One of the things the new "Toonami" needs is a killer app. Back then, the old Toonami had two: Gundam Wing and the 800 pound Gorilla named Dragon Ball Z. Maybe Panty and Stocking could be that, considering how utterly outrageous it is. Certainly Funimation thinks something could be gained hence the push to get it on the block.

I'll be watching and hoping something comes of it, but i'm skeptical.

And they could call some of us here to make new promos for the shows. :awesome:

I did watch Toonami as a kid (DBZ, Gundam Wing and Tenchi), but yes..i don't get nostalgic about it, i just see it as something from the past that has no reason to be in the future. As for new stuff, why would you wait 1 week for a new episode of Soul Eater or w/e when you can download the bluray and watch it whenever you please?

They'd probably make an AMV out of it to try and sponsor it too. Like making one like this for example :ying:

okay, as a hardcore anime fan (or even semi-hardcore), toonami probably shouldn't be your PRIMARY source of anime, but it's fun to watch, they've got the best bumpers in my, and probably every other fan's opinion, and they show (or used to show) pretty much, little AMVs, and that's probably what i love most about the bumps now.
but in the bigger picture, supporting toonami means toonami gets money which means the anime industry gets a boost, especially the anime industry in america.

that's only ideal though, i'm not one of those that really really believes in toonami as the messiah of anime or saturday nights, just optimistic i guess, i watch because it's fun to watch, even if i have seen everything they're showing.

Soul Eater...put that on now and you'd have a whole new explosion of younger fans.

Bakemonogatari....not so much. I mean, remember when they ran FLCL a couple of times? The general consensus I was seeing was "wtf is this shit" :|

I don't think I've ever watched Toonami..

I do remember catching a lot of super late night Adult Swim when I was in my early 20s...

When I was a child I was watching stuff like Aeon Flux on MTV, or catching weird stuff like Green Legend Ran or Project A-ko on "Saturday Anime" on Sci-fi Channel. (F*U Sy-Fy). Watching Ranma 1/2 on a friend's recorded tapes (I donno what channel he got them off of, but he claimed it was some kind of satellite channel).
