    Just be glad they were able to get something new with their budget. A lot of you had your nostalgia expectations too high.

    Wasn't so bad last night, Deadman was interesting. Casshern was a little off but I'll see how it goes.

    Yea, this is going to be their late night saturday anime block, something they've had for years but always felt like it was just something they forgot to cancel. Now that they're calling it Toonami and actually putting some effort into it, maybe they'll make the block fun again. What made Toonami great wasn't just the shows they aired, but the presentation and feel of the block as a whole, if they can capture that again I'm sure they'll be able to do more with the block as a whole.

    I watched that shit most weekends, more than happy to watch GitS, FMA and Cowboy Bebop for the thousandth time, so no real reason to stop now.

    FMA not so much, cause it's like a giant soap opera and just felt like a drag to watch a random episode of. Most of Bebops episodes had a "one off" type of feel, so watching one randomly never felt so bad. GitS is somewhere in between those, so I can handle it.

    FMA isn't some 'giant soap opera'.. at least not in Brotherhood. The first series.. yeah, because they didn't have much manga source material, but Brohood was really good.

    Right, it does. The manga is fine.

    The anime is a abomination of an adaption. It's bad. Really bad.

    This is a marathon, not a sprint. Keep watching if you want more stuff, and we'll keep you posted.

    Thanks to all who watched ‪#toonami‬ ! We won't know ratings until Tues or Wed, and even then, it's going to take longer than a week.

    What I mean is, you can pick a random episode and be like "Ok what's going on, whos done what?", where as with most of Bebop and a lot of GitS, you can pick a random episode and be like "Hey, don't need to know every ones back story for the past 20 episodes to enjoy this".

    A lot of anime is like this, at least the ones worth watching. This post is somewhat why anime in america probably won't work.

    This is why I wish more IPTV or Netflix services to take off further. Fuck having to 'stay tuned', I'd rather watch on my own time via legitimate means besides overpriced disc-based releases.

    To be fair, it's probably why I download all my shows. Sitting down at a specific time every week just kills the enjoyment for me, I like to watch at my own pace.

    DBZ is the only anime I've ever done this for. Took like 6 years... or longer.

    I ran in snow from my uncle's house back to my hotel room while visiting for Christmas to watch the end of the Cell Games. I still get goosebumps rewatching Gohan disintegrate Cell.

    Watched it last night. Loved seeing all the Toonami style bumps and Tom. I have never seen Deadman Wonderland before. I know I've probably seen something about it in the past but never picked it up. It's so weird I find it interesting to watch. I guess I need to read the manga sense everyone here says the anime sucks. Regardless, if it brings Toonami more attention it's a good thing.

    It's what I did when I was in elementary school/junior high school. Good times. Instant gratification bothers me for some unknown reason.

    I know what you mean. I tend to put-off shows I can watch immediately because I want to save them for when there are no good shows playing. When that happens though, I seldom get around to watching said shows.
