Why is this in the anime section?

I wonder if this opens the door to another season of Sym-Bionic Titan. I recall Genndy Tartakovsky really liked it and was looking for a way to continue it after Cartoon Network canceled it.

Moved it to the Movies, TV Series forum. In the future if you think something is in the wrong forum, you can just report it.

RWBY's kind of a special case since it's not on a TV network and CR streams it.

There are other series that CR doesn't stream and is on the Anime section. I understand the TV part but seen unfair, since Samurai Jack look like anime.

1) The very large majority of other series that CR doesn't stream that are in the Anime section are undeniably "anime"
2) "looks like anime" -- okay, I'll buy it. I just checked and found that we had threads about Legend of Korra in both the Anime and the Movies, TV Series forums, so there's a precedent for leaving this in Anime since that's where it started. I'm going ahead and moving it back.

I admittedly almost did a mental flip when I first heard about this since Samurai Jack is definitely 'nostalgia fuel', will be happy to have more to watch of it (maybe they can have a marathon of the original episodes though since its been a while).

Samurai Jack is an old school series I used to casually follow when I was a kid. I think it was kinda refreshing, one of the serious natured cartoons, but nostalgic. I used to even play a few of the games before.

I haven't seen the series in a very long time though but the action was actually pretty entertaining especially in the first few episodes. Idk how I feel about this tbh. I forgot almost everything I've seen except for the main premise. Do we also learn more about Samurai Jack's past? The dark journey he follows?

Well anyways, good for the fans of the series but I'll probably pass on this.

There was much excitement when I learned of this. Samurai Jack is one of my favorite CN shows ever. Right up there with BTAS and Justice League. Artistically, I think only some of the BTAS episodes can stand up to it. I really hope they keep the same style of storytelling.

Hey, if My Little Pony can have a thread here, Samurai Jack can.

That would be awesome if AS/Toonami picked up Sym-Bionic Titan for more seasons. Really liked that show and think it would do well not being constrained by CN's limits on violence.
