Apparently the new toonami is already suffering from funding issues and is gonna need ratings to move forward. Though all the more it makes me think Casshern Sins is a bad idea; its an ok series but i can't see it being a strong ratings grabber. Frankly i think they should have gone with something a lot heavier on intense action, or something more hilarious... save the slower more philosophical series till AFTER they got solid ratings
So I'm wodering where all the money went?

Ya, i'm a fan of both One Piece and Fairy Tail, but i think they might be bad choices for toonami. Both of them are just too damn long. At one episode a week it would take FOREVER to get anywhere, and that can be a real drag on some people, especially with one piece which eventually starts suffering from snail pacing. And part of the problem with such epic long series is the fact that they take up a permanent spot on the timeline... Bleach already takes up one such spot, and as I pointed out before, they are already having trouble finding enough space in the timeline for new shows as it is... you give one piece or fairy tail such a long lasting spot, then you have one last spot for new shows... the good thing about normal length animes is that you can get through them fairly quickly, re-run them 2 or 3 times, and then put it to rest so that a new show can take up the timeslot. The show stays on air for 1-2 years and then you can move on to something new, where as shows like One piece and Fairy tail would be holding those slots for the next decade.

I might be more open to the idea if toonami was once again a weekday block, or if adult swim could be convinced to give even more of saturday night to toonami
And ya, i kinda agree with the possible demographic issues... they may be great series, but they can be a tough sell to a more general audience; and right now toonami needs to attract as big of an audience as they possibly can so that it can make sure it sticks around.


Inuyasha Final Act... i stopped caring for that series a LONG time ago... but i think it would atleast be a safe ratings hitter for the new block. So decent enough choice


Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, would probably work well.

Considering that PS & G is basically an homage to a style largely developed on Adult Swim, it seems like a natural fit. It's not my cup of tea but I'd expect it to do pretty well.

Inuyasha Kanketsu-hen is a no-brainer - the first one was a major player for CN back in the day.

News from Toonami:

Quote:
DeMarco also clarified the Adult Swim’s May 16 press release which stated that Toonami is developing “new original anime programming.” The resurrected Toonami will feature new title acquisitions but will not have new titles developed specifically for broadcast.

Part of me agrees. No matter what they do for this "resurrection", it'll never be as profound as the original run, especially the golden years.

Good start with Deadman Wonderland. Love the Grindhouse like quality of it.

As for Casshern Sins I've already seen and for the most part enjoyed it so I'll give it another watch.

So thrilled watching new bumpers and game reviews from Toonami.

Casshern was definitely my favorite of the pair, despite comparatively little happening (I just love the old school feel of the show, the animation, the music, it was great). Curious to see if that preference changes as the episodes go on.

There's a few reasons why there's no money.

1. Toonami ended because of low ratings. It cost a lot of money to produce, so the network is waiting to see if the ratings justify more money.

2. Adult Swim has made a lot of money airing original low budget comedy shows. This is a good return on investment versus something like Toonami which requires licensing and other overhead to keep fresh.

3. Anime ratings on AS have tanked over the years. Toonami could help renew interest, but it's possible the audience has moved on despite a vocal minority pushing for a better block of anime.

If CN's parent company sees good ratings in this, money will be increased and the block will see slicker production and more variety in shows. I think that'll be a given, considering how terrible AS's anime block was.

Deadman was a good choice, Casshern was pretty dull though.

Judging by your avatar you are a Trigun fan. Give Casshern some time.

The next ep preview seemed like it might get better. But the entire first ep was "Casshern, you ass."

Considering the response I've heard from a lot of people, the fact it was trending big on twitter and that my brother (who doesn't watch all that much anime) got hooked on it I'd say your dream of western popularity might turn out true. Although the 2nd season prediction is more of a longshot.

Right. Back when people watched television instead of being on the internet 24/7.

Is there a way to watch Toonami shows on a computer when they air?

If you're browsing Animesuki, you can also just go to certain ... illicit ... websites and view them for yourself.

Better to give Toonami ratings by watching it directly. I however, do not pay for the premium channels and don't get it. I do remember watching tv and being on the net being a nice pastime of mine, but now it's pretty much exclusively one or the other. 95% of the time it's computer time.
