HEY...it IS Saturday! Yipppeeeee!

FALL SEASON IS ALMOST UPON US, CRUNCHYROLLERS! THIS IS THE MOMENT WE'VE TRAINED FOR! LETS DO IT!



Dat profile picture makes it all the more convincing.
Let us WATCH anime!!!

Umm. Maybe they'll move the cartoons to a weekday? I mean, kids do wake up just to watch these shows. A sure way to make sure kids are awake for school and won't sleep it over. I'm sure that must be their plan for removing it from Saturdays... I'm sure... If not... I have no words... World is doomed without the presence of anime to watch over the kids...

No, this can't be. There still a block called NBC Kids
www.nbc.com/nbc-kids I think Litton Entertainment might get rid of it. Just watch, if it would ever happen

My Saturday morning cartoons are right here on Crunchyroll :). Still, I feel bad for the kids who won't grow up knowing the fun of waking up really early to watch all their favorite shows. As a kid, it was the highlight of my weekend.

Pokemon was a Saturday morning cartoon back in my day. I still remember watching the original series, Advanced Generation (I started playing Pokemon during Gen 3), as well as Battle Frontier on WB for kids on Saturday mornings before they signed over Pokemon to Cartoon Network. Those were some good memories.

In many ways, Saturday morning cartoons were a large driving force behind why the late Millennial generation got behind anime so adamantly, because of shows like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragon Ball Z, and other anime aimed towards kids and teens that got us into the industry in the first place. Toonami was a large driving force as well, but more towards older teens and adults, so the fact that we were offered dubbed anime back when we were kids was fantastic and it allowed our generation to enjoy and prosper in the Golden Age of Anime today. THe most important factor, however, is that my generation didn't need to intentionally seek out anime; it was just there for us to enjoy, giving us the motivation to learn more about anime as we got older.

We lost something large this week, but at least with streaming and network programming aimed towards kids, perhaps the next generation will be able to find anime like we did, even if it's not as prevalent as it once was. Perhaps it's the job of our generation to introduce anime at a young age to them if the networks can only offer so much without intentionally seeking them out. I can only hope, though.
