    As long as they keep their live-action programming away from it, I'll be happy.

    So they do, and everybody responds by screaming and crying that they don't want it.

    Amazing
    from the line up they have showed so far, they haven't brought Toonami back. They are just calling their exact same Saturday line up Toonami.
    If they didn't want that kind of blowback, they should have waited a little longer so they could have announced what new shows they are going to air.

    Where does it say they're putting all the Fox shows on Saturday?....
    The way I read it, they're just re-upping those shows for other blocks (most likely Sunday or Monday) and re-upping all their other shows throughout the year, nothing says that they're making Saturday "Fox Night" so dunno wtf people are talking about.

    That said even if they just shuffle oldschool anime on Saturday and keep their original stuffz like Bleach and FMA (fuck Durarara and Kekaishi) it'll be awesome. [as] has said time and time again that Saturday is one of their worst ratings nights and this probably won't be THAT much of a drastic change, at least it'll be fresh.

    Also.... NEW SUPERJAIL IN THE MAKING. Very excite~

    Sounds good though, I miss Tom. Looking forward to watching this again.
    IGPX and the second Season of Big O were both developed by the guys behind Toonami and were both pretty cool so it's not like this is new territory for them.

    Well to be fair, Adult Swim *IS* the same thing as Toonami seeing as Adult Swim and Toonami were made by the same people. Hell, Toonami is the whole reason Adult Swim is even a thing now.

    Pretty much the whole idea of "Bringing back Toonami" will result in them taking their Saturday block and just filling it with new Toonami bumpers while keeping the content pretty much the same as it always been. Which honestly, I won't mind at all. It'll never be the Toonami of old that everyone here remembers, but it'll certainly be better then the crap bumpers they show now. As long as they continue to bring over new stuff, give the old stuff the respect it deserves and have Tom be Tom, I'll be happy.

    Also, it'd be nice if they could finish off some of the older shows that got the axe mid series.

    Cyborg 009? yes please.

    I'm pretty sure they'll be showing new stuff and not just the old line up. Things like Bleach will definitely stay on since they draw so many viewers. I'm guessing it will be 3 new shows and 3 old ones. They said they won't reveal the line up before hand so we'll have to tune in to find out.



    Salodin; Apparently that KH game is on the 3DS and it is called KH Dream Drop Distance.

    Quoting this to point out that they said they were waiting until the 26th (when it airs) so it'll be a complete surprise to everyone as far as their schedule.

    And people bitching "Oh wah, Adult Swim's cashing in on the Toonami nostalgia factor, wah" are retarded. As stated in one of the couple posts before mine.. Adult Swim wouldn't have even existed if it weren't for Toonami bringing in the animu, getting that whole idea off the ground. It's no one's fault but who heads it now for all the live-action garbage that's come from it since. It's completely changed.. but Toonami can have a semblance of old without it being a 'rebranding'.. so how about we wait and see before crying about it.

    But yeah, they've got a few of their normal AS shows in the "Toonami" block, just because stuff like Bleach and what not fits the block in general.. but.. blah.

    Hey!!!...
    I love [as] bumps , especially the music

    But for reals yeah, it'll never be the same old Toonami but it'll be a nice change to see Tom again at least. They'll have to keep some of the new anime in the line-up to appease the fans that still watched their Saturday blocks (I usually tune in for Bleach at least) but god it's gonna be nice seeing Tom introduce YuYu, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, DBZ, etc etc etc... whatever they plan to put into the block :D.

    Just wanted to address the live-action bit... I mean, they probably do get a lot of their revenue from their live action shows, making actual profit for nearly no work (in terms of Tom Goes to the Mayor and Tim & Eric). I know people on this board generally hate those shows but you gotta think how much they've expanded thanks to them.
    Spoiler: show

    I for one enjoy Tim & Eric and the like, Eagleheart especially. Also I'm very happy they're bringing back The Heart She Holler, stupidest show ever but damn it can be funny lol

    If they've got that then I'm half-convinced they planned April fools as a test-bed to gauge interest in doing this instead of a fun one-off event.

    I would love to see Yu Yu Hakusho, and Outlaw Star. Nostalgia please!

    I really hope this is all a misunderstanding and Adult Swim isn't that cheap to not air decent anime. Tired of the only good thing to watch Saturday nights is reruns of FMA: Brotherhood.

    I'd love to see Case Closed/Detective Conan come back to. Never understood why people hated the series.

    It was a mature version of scooby doo, that show rocked.

    Case Closed didn't really age well artistically. I know some of us might not care, but your casual viewer will probably be turned off. I wouldn't mind seeing it on, as well as YYH post-spirit detective arc or whatever they called it where he fought the other one before going demon. I've babble about my ideal AS lineup before, though, and unfortunately it involves more than just the worst night of the week to air things.

    I never had an issue with Case Closed, but I think it had it's chance. Too big of a series..

    Adult Swim is also developing new original anime programming for fans.
    The only time they "helped" "develop" a "new" "anime" was when they threw a big heap of Turner money at the second season of Big O to get production credits and perpetual airing rights. Good thing Big O turned out to be a good television show, right? Right guys? Big O is good. Guys?

    It is also good that Final Fantasy X < Astro Boy: Omega Factor, Alien Hominid, Jedi Knight II, Lord of the Rings: TT, MGS VR Missions, Super Mario Sunshine, etc.

    That being said I hope they re-dub Samurai Pizza Cats into an adult version a'la MXC/Takeshi's Castle.
