PostSubject: Toonami on Cartoon Network   Sun May 18, 2014 9:02 pm

I've been a huge fan of Cartoon Network's anime program Toonami.
I first watched it back in the 90's.
They had shows like "Dragonball Z", "Sailor Moon", "Outlaw Star", "Naruto" & Neon Genesis Evangelion".
The program was canceled in the cancelled in 2008.
Then on April Fool's Day of 2012, they replaces "The Room" with Toonami.
It was finally revived on May 26 of that year.
But they aired their new anime lineup at midnight.
They aired series such as "Deadman's Wonderland", "Soul Eater", "Black Lagoon" & "Space Dandy" & "Attack on Titan"..
What are you thoughts on Toonami?

Most of the anime I've seen has been from watching Cartoon Network. I remember liking OUTLAW STAR - and DRAGONBALL is a guilty pleasure - but never got into the other shows in that block. When I was in college they used to run a bunch of them (some of these were Toonami, some were Adult Swim) and I got really into TRIGUN, BLUE GENDER and yeah, I admit, KENSHIN. They ran FLCL and COWBOY BEBOP in that same timeframe too, which I liked, and INUYASHA which I didn't care for at all. I haven't watched the most recent lineup.

My family didn't get a TV setup which included Cartoon Network until about 2000 and I think at that time they were just airing the first season of Dragonball Z over here. I was about 12 or 13 at the time and I remember catching a few random episodes of that show and just being mesmerised by how different and over-the-top it was and I pretty much fell in love with it. I think within the next year they started the UK Toonami block proper and would show Tenchi Muyo and Gundamn Wing. I watched both shows and enjoyed them but eventually they just kept repeating them, never going further in any anime franchise aside from Dragon Ball Z which gradually crept onwards. In this country Anime was much an unknown element amongst 99.9999% of the populace. You'd see Guyver and maybe Akira on the shelves of some video stores but to most people they were just "weird foreigh cartoons" but Toonami introduced me to a new world of exotic and sometimes challenging entertainment and I became a pretty big anime geek, having to go to specialist comic book stores in bigger cities to buy imported issues of Animerica and whatever Manga I could get my hands on. Aside from Cartoon Network we would get episodes of Blue Gender and Neon Genesis Evangelion at about 2 in the morning every Thursday on the sci-fi channel and they'd sometimes show a movie the odd movie as well. Then when the anime boom started to penetrate the UK a little more Cartoon network started a new channel called CNX which was aimed at a slightly older audience and specialised in more action oriented cartoons. They showed Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star on there as well as Dragonball GT all of which I enjoyed but by that point I'd started to focus more on music as an interest. I was always disappointed that we never got another Gundam series aside from Wing shown on TV over here.

In the last few years my appreciation for Anime has returned to an extent and I still stream certain shows every now and then. I really liked Attack on Titan and I intermittently watch episodes of Legend of Galactic Heroes which I think is a really underrated classic.

I do have Toonami to thank for introducing me to Anime and indirectly introducing me to other aspects of the fascinating Japanese culture. I get a fuzzy feeling inside when I look back on the days of coming home from school and getting comfy on the big armchair waiting for the newest episode of DBZ to come on. I'm a nostalgic old fool.

I really hate dubbed anime, but the lineup you mentioned (Deadman's Wonderland", "Soul Eater", "Black Lagoon" & "Space Dandy" & "Attack on Titan) is pretty awesome...especially Black Lagoon, Space Dandy and of course Attack on Titan are amazing shows.

Damn that image, you know I bought some attack on titan toys from a wholesaler to resell on amazon and they pretty much looked exactly like that picture...except not quite because they were bootlegs and I couldn't sell them. So now whenever I see that happy titan hanging out by that wall I'm like "oh that bastard...one of these days..."

They've chopped up the controversial bathtub scene from the latest episode of "Kill la Kill".
