Does Toonami irritate you?

I noticed that Toonami doesnt get a lot of the school life series. Blue Exorcist was the first I seen in a while on Toonami that had something like that. I would love to see Toonami Sub at least one series just to see how it goes with the audience like Cowboy Bebop subbed since they been airing the same 26 episodes for years now. But I agree with a few others Toonami is just putting the series out there so people can see their are more series anime in the world than Yu Gi Oh , Bayblade, and Pokemon.

And this is exactly why we need it. Toonami basically created a whole generation of anime / manga fans back in the mid- to late '90s, laying the biggest foundation stone of our subculture as it exists today.

I don't watch Toonami so really I don't feel one way or another about it. Funny enough, it wasn't Toonami that introduced me to anime but rather the Sci-Fi channel back in the early-mid 90's. They used to show anime movies like GiTS and the Tenchi Movies and other strongly Sci-Fi influenced animes.

Bleach and Naruto Shippuden make most of the views. Space Dandy & Attack on Titan also help the views. And also Blue Exorcist kicks ass unlike Sword Art Online so I'm glad I can watch it dubbed somewhere, since Anipilex never let's their dubs go anywhere, I prefer not reading words thank you. Black Lagoon is for the mature audience who don't want to see moe blob desu kyun anime which I can understand, a lot of people hate anime for that reason.

DBZ Kai is mostly there so fans can shut up about it, it can also air uncut which it had the sad truth of only airing edited because it was on Nicktoons and Vortex so people think it's the kiddy DBZ when it's not. I'm excited for uncut no filler DBZ with better dubbed voice acting

And when Blue Exorcist ends I'll be very sad also, I really really really really hope for no SAO ever again. That wasn't fun to watch.

If it brings in more anime fans, it means it is working.

Unfortunately costs will be the deciding factor on what is added to the Toonami block, it is easier to get older shows usually that have already been dubbed than grabbing new shows that have just been dubbed or will soon be dubbed. I doubt you will see subs since I am sure like 90% of the viewers don't want to have to read subs while listening to a language the probably don't understand.

Personally I don't watch Toonami so I don't even know what is on there right now. I don't care to stay up that late usually and hell my TV has only switched off of my Roku for my XBox and DvD player since I got it, I don't even watch TV anymore.

No, it doesn't bother me. I record what I want and ignore the rest. Toonami is getting good ratings for the anime time slots, if DB shows that no one is watching they'll replace it with something else.

Yes, for a different reason. I find the commercials for the Adult swim programming awful. From just the ads for the shows, they seem designed to offend anyone and everyone.

Have you ever really paid attention to Adult Swim? All of their shows pick fun at everyone and everything. No one is left out. That's literally the point. They make the entire world out to be a joke and make millions.

No, I have never gave Adult swim a chance. I am out of sync with demographics for these shows. My humor is still stuck in the 60-70's

Thanks

I like the cartoons more than the live action

I don't get toonami unless I pay for the channel and I'm never going to pay for commercial tv.
