Toonami is doing good

    People still watch Cowboy Bebop on [adult swim], so probably. Besides, if Sword Art Online and Blue Exorcist can pull 1 millions viewers that late, InuYasha should at least pull decent numbers.

    They said if they stretch Kai, it'll look terrible. This animation is coming straight out of 1989 too. There has been a lot of demand for shows on Cartoon Network/[adult swim] to be aired in their original aspect ratio since most networks don't stretch their shows.

    Toonami has said they do hope to run the Buu Saga when it's available.

    Stretching images is a bad decision. That's why people complained about the widescreen format applied to all of the standard definition episodes in that super long The Simpsons marathon.

    Cowboy Bebop is a better anime than InuYasha, though. Of course, InuYasha's still popular enough to bring in the views, but at least Final Act's only 26 episodes long. I don't even know if this is Final Act's first time airing on Toonami, so I don't see how it won't bring in the ratings.

    There is no reason to stay up until 2 AM to do anything relating to InuYasha.

    Now it seems that some of the movies Toonami will air in December will be reruns from last year. All of the shows they've picked up this year + budget cuts from Turner have limited their choices for movies this year. I figure they'll go with 2 reruns, 2 new movies. Akira and Summer Wars are probably the most likely to be the reruns.

    I can't imagine 1 of the new movies not being Battle of Gods, but I have no idea what the last movie could be besides FMA: Sacred Stone of Milos, but I'm not sure how to feel about that if they are rerunning 2 movies with Conqueror of Shamballa airing last year.

    Wait, not only did Turner remove its channels from Dish (therefore barring me from watching CN and Adult Swim), but it also affected Toonami as a whole?

    Toonami's basically being done via the Adult Swim group's own free will and free time. Even so, they still work as a part of Cartoon Network. So whatever budget cuts Turner does to CN affects everyone working for the network, including the Adult Swim group.

    Also, excuse me while I bang my head on my desk from seeing people complain about Bleach not being rerun. They seriously want a rerun of all 366 episodes. A worse idea than those wanting the original 291 episodes of DBZ to air again on Toonami.

    The Great Butler Hush, keep it down

    I think there were implications that Toonami wants to show Eva 3.33 once Funimation finally completes fixing the dub of it. It's been delayed for nearly a year so it's got to be nearly done.

    My sure bets for movies would be Battle of Gods and 3.33, Sacred Star of Milos taking a third spot if one opens.

    Izanagi 'Sup!

    I'm all up for Battle of Gods even if I already have the movie. Sacred Star of Milos is one worth watching because it is basically a sakuga anime.

    Looks like Bleach IS rerunning, though not from the beginning.

    11:30PM - Attack on Titan (reruns)
    12:00AM - Dragon Ball Z Kai
    12:30AM - Naruto Shippuden
    1:00AM - One Piece
    1:30AM - Gurren Lagann
    2:00AM - InuYasha: The Final Act
    2:30AM - Bleach (reruns: start point tbd)
    3:00AM - Space Dandy
    3:30AM - Cowboy Bebop
    4:00AM - FMA Brotherhood
    4:30AM - Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG
    5:00AM - Big O (season 2)
    5:30AM - Samurai Jack

    This will be the schedule for the rest of the year until they announce the month of movies list. Also, Jason DeMarco said in a Reddit AMA that they will try to get the rights to Hellsing Ultimate Parts 9 and 10 and get them on the air as soon as they can.

    They can probably get rid of Bleach like they did with Naruto if they manage to get something else.

    Dragon Ball Z Kai is going to be a trainwreck on Toonami just like it was on Nicktoons which is why I strongly prefer the original English Dub by FUNimation and Pioneer/Ocean Group. The heavy amount of censorship and editing on Kai doesn't do the franchise any justice whatsoever especially with the absence of Bruce Faulconer and some of the original voice actors, I'd love to see DBZ: Battle of Gods get aired on Toonami even though it's already available on blue-ray.

    Oh man, sorry to hear that.
    This is why I ended up with DirecTV basic package. =/

    For some reason I was under the impression that there was going to be a continuation after the Cell Saga, bleh.
    That was my bad. x.x

    At least Final Act is going to go ahead and finally air. XD

    I'm not really crazy about this schedule. There's too many reruns, they couldn't have added something else?

    Cartoon Network just had some budget cuts due to Turner. Not helping that the network is also no longer on Dish. Remember, the Adult Swim folks are working with what they can. CN isn't providing them much for Toonami. Besides, we're at the end of the year. It's crazy enough that they were able to not only get Kai and Gurren Lagann, but manage to snatch InuYasha: Final Act right as they ran into a problem with Hellsing.

    Toonami has announced their Month of Movies for this year, and it looks like the effort to get Hellsing Ultimate Parts 9 and 10 on the air ASAP worked. There will be 2 movies each night (Hellsing is counted as a movie)

    December 6th - Hellsing Ultimate Part 9, Summer Wars
    December 13th - Hellsing Ultimate Part 10, Fullmetal Alchemist - The Sacred Star of Milos
    December 20th - Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan, AKIRA
    December 27th - Evangelion 1.11, Evangelion 2.22

    I probably won't watch the Eva movies again, or Summer Wars or AKIRA. I might though. At least now I can finish Hellsing Ultimate and see the FMA Brotherhood movie. And the DBZ fan in me has wanted Broly on Toonami for a while (minus Bio-Broly).

    I couldn't help but think of the Digimon movie while watching this, and while I'd say Summer Wars did tell the story better, it felt like a rerun. The movies are so similar that I felt like I had seen it before. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's bad, but I think I enjoyed the other movies more last year. I should probably watch it again.

    I thought InuYasha: The Final Act was a rerun previously aired on Adult Swim before Toonami came back.
