Gintama, done deal. That show belongs on that channel. It has action and comedy. And mostly adult swim is about comedy. I remember someone told me that fairytail was coming to adult swim. Don't know what happen with that.

The problem with Elfen Lied is that it would require a lot of censoring and editing. Back in 2006, the programming director for Adult Swim wanted to add Elfen Lied, but found that it would require so much editing that the show "would have been cut to shreds", so that did not happen. This is evidently still the same since Deadman Wonderland, which is currently airing, has its bad language censored. Just imagine what they would have to do to air Elfen Lied.

I honestly don't understand what the big deal is about having anime on a cable TV channel like Cartoon Network. That may have been a semi-efficient way of introducing new shows to ppl back in the 90's or the turn of the last century/millennium. But in this increasingly broadband enabled internet age of high quality streaming video on demand, it seems very inconvenient to try to watch stuff that way. Especially since by the time it airs there it's usually at least a year or two old.

It's like those old "Encyclopedia Britannica" commercials they used to broadcast back in the day. You don't see a lot of those advertised anymore right? That's because nowadays ppl have found it much more efficient to just go to Wikipedia online for any info that would usually be found in a hardbound physical encyclopedia. You want dubbed anime? There are a lot of better options out there to get it, like streaming video sites like this one, or the one Sentai operates and that gives you a choice of which audio to hear it in. Seriously, what good is Cartoon Network these days.

Actually, I think having anime on Cartoon Network, or TV in general, is still better at introducing people to anime. TVs are still the preferred medium of entertainment when it comes to watching shows. With internet, you have to have a very good connection just to watch videos. TV, especially cable TV, does not suffer near as much from this. For instance, over here at my parents' house, I can only watch videos on the internet at certain times of the day when the signal strength is good enough. On the other hand, I can watch TV at any time of the day, and they have DirecTV, not cable. Plus, I would rather watch any show on a TV screen than on a computer monitor, and I think most people feel that way.

Also, the internet is only convenient for people who are already big into anime and know what they are looking for. People who don't watch anime or know next to nothing about anime, which there are many, are not going to look up anime on the internet. They are much more likely to watch it if they conveniently come across it on TV. I, as someone who has seen a fair number of anime, am also more likely to rewatch an episode of a show that I have already seen if it is conveniently on TV at the time. I'm likely not going to go out of my way to look it up on the internet.

You claimed that cable TV may have been "semi-efficient" at introducing new shows to people back in the 90s. I'm curious as to what makes you think internet nowadays does a better job of this.

Shiki would have been a perfect fit. I don't think any editing would have needed to be done, and they could have had one of the darkest shows. They could have bumped it to midnight, moved Bleach (which completely sucks at this point) to 12:30 or 1am. Instead, they are replacing a dark show like Deadman Wonderland with Samurai Seven. I am not bashing Samurai 7, as it is a good anime, but I think it's not a good fit for the demographic that watches Toonami. Well, it looks like it will be 26 weeks of Samurai Seven for better or worse.

not sure, since i used to watch Toonami when it had Zatch Bell, IGPX, Prince of Tennis, Full-Metal Alchemist, Bleach and Naruto on it... I did start watching Trinity Blood when they brought that on and enjoyed it... I wouldn't mind if they brought that one back on... I really like Deadman Wonderland and have ALWAYS loved watching Cowboy Bebop... lost connection with Bleach and don't watch Casshern Sins (hasn't interested me since they aired it) I'd rather watch stuff I know and that I've alwas enjoyed watching....

I'm not certain events near the end would get a pass without censorship. While some of the other [AS] shows are more violent, unrealistic comic violence gets a pass that more realistic violence usually doesn't.

To explain in more detail (spoilered for those who haven't seen Shiki):

After all, as I understand it, Deadman Wonderland didn't air completely uncensored for violence, did it?

Even with some censoring, however, I do agree it would have been a good series for the new late night Toonami.
