Title: Did you watch CN on Saturday?
SearchmanDS - April 2, 2012 02:34 PM (GMT)
Been ages since I posted here, but I feel this is worth it. Saturday Night, Toonami was on as an April Fool's joke. As you can imagine, this has fans wanting Toonami back. Steve Blum, the voice of TOM, actually weighed in indirectly and told fans to give Cartoon Network Feedback about bringing Toonami back permanently.http://boards.adultswim.com/t5/Toonami/How...ly/m-p/64341949
Now, this isn't the usually "lol useless online petition that thinks it can do something". No. It's feedback directly to CN. Sound off on if you want Toonami back. Spread the word via your messangers of choice, Facebook, Twitter, other boards you frequent, and any other method you can think of. Together we can bring back a pillar of the cartoon and anime industry.

HAD I KNOWN THIS, I SOOOOOOOOOOO WOULD'VE WATCHED!!!!!!!!
Ahem.......given that the idiots that now run CN took it off to begin with, I sadly have no faith that they'd even listen. I WOULD write a letter, but it'd probably be too scathing.

Hmmmmm...........this better not be a trolling by them.
If they actually do this, I might just start watching the station regularly again.

*'Hallelujah Chorus' plays in background*
THERE IS A GOD.
And his name is Tom. :P
In all seriousness, if this isn't a massive trolling, it appears that the fans have finally gotten through to the animephobes running CN , and made them realize that anime is no longer a fad.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE, BITCHES!!!!!!!!! *raises fist triumphantly in the air*
EDIT: Huh......it's actually going to replace Adult Swim on Saturdays. WHy not in its original time slot? Not quite what we were going for, but at least we're getting it.
Apparently Tiger & Bunny is among the new shows.

The new lineup additions, and the reason why this is probably happening
- and by that, I mean the former Toonami producer getting a promotion that probably allowed this to happen in the first place.
Never heard of the first anime, and Casshern Sins, while I've not actually watched, is a tad too depressing for my tastes, if I'm to believe the spoilers I'd skimmed through sometime ago. And, unless they replay the other series from the start again, I'm gonna be too far behind on em. So, I'm a tad discouraged, here - which is bad when they're wanting more money to fund the good stuff.
If they do get the Funi version of One Piece, however, I'll be their loyal viewer forever; I've been itching to see it for too long......

Since the Bleach episode obviously wasn't the 1st, and I'm not concerned w/ the 2 new shows, I decided to forget watching it until either something that interests me goes on the lineup, or I catch up on the shitload of Bleach (and FMA Brotherhood) episodes online. (They do have them on CN's website/YT channel or something, right?)
I do approve of Toonami's bitchin' new theme song, though.
