    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    Tell me about it! I'm actually now thinking of a line from a former Toonami show. Teen Titans' Mad Mod once said, "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If people keep whining like this...we may not even have Toonami Saturday night. And seriously, if a few shows in the line-up DON'T work, the line-up can ADAPT. How many times did Toonami change its line-up over the years it originally ran?
    “So here’s the deal. Life doesn’t always wanna be your friend. Sometimes it’ll feel like life wants to hurt you. But you can’t just hide, ‘cause nobody likes a quitter. You’ve gotta take chances. They never said it was gonna be fun, or easy. Whether your totally ready, or when you least expect it, it doesn’t matter: life will punch you right in the face. And you can lie there for a second, cry a little if you need to, but get back on your feet, ‘cause it’s the gettin’ back up that counts. And that’s what shows that you’ve got heart, that’s what helps keep you going. Fall down seven times? Get up eight. And know, we’ll be right there with you.” - T.O.M. (Toonami)

    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    Well, here's the thing that doesn't make sense to me:

    Why couldn't they have kept airing those shows they played on April 1st, instead of using practically the same LineUp as the Adult Swim saturday night block? Where is Outlaw Star? DBZ? Gundam Wing? Tenchi Muyo? Sailor Moon? Big O? YuYu Hakusho? Rurouni Kenshin? All those great shows we knew and loved that were given tribute? Wasn't that what we wanted in the first place for Toonami to come back?

    It just doesn't make sense that way. It's unfortunate that it has to come down to licensing issues, too. So I would think twice before accusing people of nitpicking the schedule. =(

    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    That's also a good point, Somasol. The fact that there are even licensing issues seems weird, especially if they were able to air any of these shows for one day in April. And yeah, I want to see Outlaw Star, Zoids, and Ronin Warriors as part of Toonami way more than some of the shows they have planned.

    But Toonami's line up was never consistent. It was always changing. Toonami didn't start with Outlaw Star right from the get-go, nor was it there at the end. What I don't think people realize is that a TV line-up isn't set in stone. It changes over time. The fact that Toonami even left in the first place should prove that. But we wanted Tom. We wanted Sara. We wanted to see them transition the shows and do things in the middle of commercials. We wanted to be able to refer to an anime block as something other than an anime block that occurs late Saturday night on Adult Swim. So they brought back Toonami. Who's to say that they won't make alterations along the way, like they did when we were growing up? And while there is no guarantee that they'll change it so quickly, there's more of a chance that they will while it's still under the Toonami banner than they would otherwise. But if we don't at least support the fact that Toonami has returned from the farthest reaches of space and it vanishes once more, will anything have truly changed in the long run? No. What will have happened is that we wasted a second chance, with little hope of another. We're being given an opportunity here that we could have very easily not had to begin with. Are we really going to throw away this possibility because the starting line-up is a little scary and not what we expected? Are we going to ignore the reality that there may not be any other Toonami line-ups if this goes under? I am the LAST person to say we should look in the long run. I don't want to wait. I hate waiting as much as anyone else. Heck, it goes against my nature. I prefer enjoying life in the present, and getting as much out of it whenever I can. And I can appreciate stubbornness for seeing the things we want to see. That's how I am with the issue Mega Man Legends 3.

    But that's a different issue, and the same attitude isn't the recipe for success here. The recipe for success HERE requires a different approach. I see an opportunity of a bright future, and for once in my life, I not only recognize what's staring me right in the face, but what I need to do to make it shine. And it's something completley within reason for me. I can just watch the three shows I want to watch, without changing the channel. And when it airs the shows I don't want to see (in all honesty, I know little about shows like Deadman Wonderland or even Elfin Lied, but I normally can't sit through anything excessively bloody, violent, and slasher like in nature, especially not at night, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there's a lot of that in those shows), I can just turn off the TV and keep an eye on the clock. Even if I don't LOVE the shows (I like Bleach, and Cowboy Bebop is warming up to me, but there are many shows I prefer), if I like them at all, I WILL watch them. If I'm going to call myself a Toonami Faithful, this is what I believe I have to do. I'm not telling anyone to agree with me, nor am I asking anyone to share my views. You guys do what you think will get us what we want. But this is what I think is right, what I think will get the end result I desire. I may be wrong, and it may not mean anything at all, but I may be right in having faith in Toonami and in doing what I can to keep the future as open as possible. This is my opinion, my belief that by doing this, I may one day get to see Outlaw Star aired somewhere where others can see it, people I can meet with face to face and share my love for Outlaw Star and have it returned because they have seen it recently. I’m willing to fight for this dream, fight to make it all mine!

    i would think that because it was just for one night, and because the official dvd releases were advertised during each show. although, i would have rather had [as] take a showing of kekkaishi or durarara for one slot and use the budget to licence one really awesome show, but i guess that didn't happen.

    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    Guys I think you should all have a look at the comment section of this video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN85afK7SNA&list=UUlFSU9_bUb4Rc6OYfTt5SPw& index=5&feature=plcp

    (Sorry not sure if I can embed)

    But it's clear that everyone expected something different, but hey, don't you think Adult swim will... yanno... KNOW this? they'll adapt and improve, I absolutely LOVED the old toonami, but it will change, they have to show new stuff people haven't seen, yeah there's nostalgia included but part of the thing that made toonami great was finding new shows, I still remember the very first time tom previewed Outlaw Star as a kid (and I mean the very first time..at least in the uk) instantly, I was stoked, I called a friend from my house phone and told him to get his ass over here cause there's a show we need to watch.

    That right there is what made toonami great!

    ....

    Still... I want outlaw star and trigun on there in the future especially, since they only have a cult following really which is ridiculous.

    Duo Maxwell: The god of death shall rise again but for now. I need some sleep...

    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    The fact that people are saying theyre not gonna watch it just because of the schedule makes me sick. So many people worked so hard to bring it back and now people are just gonna write it off because of the initial schedule? If this thing falls flat again because of lack of viewership, I'm gonna go on a rampage lol

    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    @Asher: Thanks, man.

    Safe to say I'm really psyched about tomorrow night. Toonami is coming back, and with a new season of the Halo machinima Red vs. Blue is coming out Memorial Day...this may possibly be the best Memorial Day weekend ever. Of all time.

    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    @Master: Some powerful stuff a few posts back about the new Toonami airing, and I do agree that it will take time for viewers like us to become satisfied. But I will admit that right now this simply looks like Adult Swim is trying more to revert back to how it was three years ago, rather than trying to bring back Toonami directly. Still, it's a step in the right direction as far as I'm concerned.

    However, for those of you who can't wait, or still want to enjoy Toonami as it was back in its pre-golden age:

    You're welcome.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    RE: Toonami Officially Returns May 26th

    @RTSender: Well, using logic or using passion in arguments often seems to do quite a lot, so I just figured combine both into one comment. I guess speaking with both my head and my heart at the same time can work out pretty well.

    To be honest, I've never watched a lot of Adult Swim, so I've got no idea how different it was three years ago. As far as the last few years of Adult Swim goes, I really just remember noticing a lack of anime at one point, Futurama moving to a different network right when I was getting into it, and being baffled when Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood stopped airing new episodes on Adult Swim. That was pretty much the last time I looked at Adult Swim. I've got no idea what Adult Swim was like as a whole 3 years ago, but if bringing back Toonami is really just an attempt to get more viewers, though, than quite frankly, this strategy is already working on me at any rate.
