    Toonami

    So any of you guys here in the US watch Toonami? I still watch it every Saturday night, and I record it when I can't. As for shows on the block I follow, I watch DBZ Kai, Kill la Kill, SAO II, I:TFA, and One Piece.

    I still watch it whenever I have the time to do it. I like watching Kill la Kill but That's the only show that I seemed to have taken a liking to at the moment.

    Ah Toonami...
    It's what got a lot of folks into anime in the first place.

    I miss the days when it was on after school and hosted by this awesome guy.


    But sadly, it has been many moons since then.


    What's the lineup these days on the Saturday block?

    I'm glad Toonami is back, but they could mix in some of the older shows other than DBZ Kai and sometimes Cowboy Bebop. To name a few Outlaw Star (obviously), Trigun, Tenchi Muyo and even Sailor Moon. I started watching Toonami when it was afternoon only and Moltar was the host before Tom.

    What's the lineup these days on the Saturday block?
    Currently the lineup is:
    12:00 AM - DBZ Kai
    12:30 AM - Kill la Kill
    1:00 AM - Sword Art Online II
    1:30 AM - Inuyasha: The Final Act
    2:00 AM - Naruto: Shippuden
    2:30 AM - One Piece
    3:00 AM - Attack on Titan

    Although this next Saturday is the last one for Inuyasha, after that Michiko and Hatchin goes in at 1:00 and pushed SAO II to 1:30. Akame ga Kill then comes in when Kill la Kill ends.

    Here's what I would do:

    -Kai is fine, I guess, so we'll keep it there.
    -I haven't been entirely sold on Kill la Kill yet. I'll look into it one of these days, but since I don't have quite a strong opinion about it, it can stay.
    -...Don't get me started on Sword Art Online II. Nix it in favor of Bebop.
    -Inuyasha is a classic. It's not my favorite, but it was one of my firsts. Keep it.
    -The manga for Naruto is done, so we should stop delaying the inevitable. Replace it with something like Ghost in the Shell or Psycho-Pass.
    -One piece should actually be moved up in the lineup so we don't have to wait for it. It's popular, it's cohesive, it's awesome.
    -Again, not quite sold on AoT. I guess I'm still not quite in the loop. If it were up to me, I'd replace it with something like Black Lagoon or Trigun, but that might be questionable.
    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.

    After the last two episodes of SAO I've lost my patience with it. Before I watched the series more as a "so bad it's good" kind of show (first season spoiler)
    (The "death" scene of Yui is one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen)
    , but these past two weeks just pushed it straight into "bad" territory. It disgusts me.

    Season 1 of SAO had so much going for it. The setting had some pretty breathtaking imagery and the plot had a very straightforward path leading to a satisfying resolution. Then all of a sudden, the creator pulled a Toriyama.

    I actually think average shows like SAO, Naruto, and others in the same vein serve as a great way for the casual viewer to enjoy anime. Those shows have some major flaws, which are exacerbated by the fact that they're also very popular so the critics have a lot of views, but I actually owe those shows some thanks. I can't even count the number of friends I've brought further into anime after they caught some episodes of SAO, AoT, and more on Toonami. They may not be the best, but a casual viewer looking for some quick entertainment shouldn't have to be worried about being chewed out for enjoying those shows. Just make sure to introduce them to the better examples of anime industry if they're still looking for more.

    Toonami was a great show, in my opinion. And it is indeed the one thing that got most folks into anime. Sadly at my part of the planet, is isn`t shown anymore, but then again, I can get my daily fix of anime from the interwebs.
