    I doubt that. Most of Toonami's viewers are anime fans with a decent amount of casual viewers as well. From what I've seen, most are well aware of Neon Alley.

    How many anime fans are aware or take part in it's subscription based offers? I doubt the amount you have seen is close to substantial enough for it to have any merit on its own.

    Do you really want to subject people to that dub? I don't mind the dub honestly, but it's not that great for the first half of the show. I'd much rather have Umineko on than Higurashi, but even then, I think Toonami might have some guidelines as to what should or shouldn't be aired on their block--I could be wrong, but yeah. Even then, I don't think FUNimation will ever give them permission to air it. They haven't done much with the series anyway except pull videos from YouTube down.

    With them premiering dubs of Tiger & Bunny, Blue Exorcist and InuYasha: Final Act, I'm fairly sure they have a decent amount of viewers since those are the most popular shows right now, and with Fate/Zero coming soon, it'll probably increase their viewers. I doubt they have an extreme amount, but I can't image they're unknown to most anime fans.

    It would be an excellent fit for the block but in general, the melody of cliches was never that good to begin with (though it was fun to watch).

    Ha ha, what am I even reading?
    You however are just plain wrong.
    I won't lie I did go over board there with some mindless idiosim but the truth still stand's I just think that majority of popular anime nowadays suck, garrun lagen does suck and that's just my opinion).


    I feel like this is exactly what I should expect from this section.
    Why are you supposed to get anything for yourself out of reading another person's opinion, makes you sound like you have none of you're own.

    Are you talking about anime watched? Or toonami itself? Since it's online I'm sure a large amount of anime fans which mainly reside online will have no problem finding it if they're interested in seeing it aired on TV as well.

    I wouldn't say so. Gurren Lagann's soundtrack utilizes a wide variety of styles (rock, classical, punk, j-pop, jazz, rap, even opera) and mashes them together to create something wonderful. Libera Me From Hell is probably one of the best examples of this. Its standalone theme music is also exhilarating, No Helping It! and Omae no XXX de Ten wo Tsuke!! being some of the best in my opinion.

    What I was really concerned about is licensing issues. I don't know much about anime licensing but I do know that Neon Alley is something you have to pay for. So I assume that if they got something like Fate/Zero or Blue Exorcist on their programming that they'd take some countermeasures to make sure people can't watch it elsewhere for free (ie. Toonami) right?

    I agree that it uses a ton of clichés but it's also an amazing series. I'll argue that until I die.

    That is fairly true. It would be right at home on Toonami. I just probably wouldn't often be in the mood for it.

    Your reasoning for not liking TTGL is because the majority of popular anime suck, and he's the stupid one?

    We should be thankful that it won't be getting dubbed. There's no need to to torture us in a language we understand.

    I'm not talking about anime fans in general though. I'm talking about the ones that watch Toonami. Judging by the shows Toonami airs, it's quite likely that there are more casual anime fans than hardcore ones that go out of their way to watch Tiger & Bunny and such.

    While I agree that the variety is there, I found none of the songs to be actually good in my opinion (I'm just going to use this once as the disclaimer). I used to have the soundtrack and there was really only one song, maybe two, that I actually enjoyed sans the openings and such. I could try to look the song up but that's probably take some time.

    What I was really concerned about is licensing issues. I don't know much about anime licensing but I do know that Neon Alley is something you have to pay for.

    Yeah, probably. That's what I would expect but we don't really know what's in the contract anyway.

    I thought it was dubbed o_o. Guess I read the announcement wrong or something... interesting.

    Question: has Vision of Escaflowne been on Toonami's block before? I know it was on Fox Kids, but I don't think they ever showed it all the way through. The entire series has been dubbed, so I figured they showed it somewhere, and Toonami was the one that came to mind.

    From a quick Google search:

    "Other series such as Slayers, Magical Knight Rayearth and The Vision of Escaflowne were by seeked out by Toonami, but were licensed by its competitor Fox Kids. However out of these series, Fox Kids only broadcast Escaflowne (in a heavily edited form) which was dropped from the schedule after a few episodes. Slayers was also edited and planned to be broadcast by Fox Kids but never aired."

    Yeah, it was sub only. Higurashi was dubbed.

    The idea of any Fox imprint airing Rayearth seems pretty ludicrous because there are certainly no straight characters in CLAMP series.

    Yeah... and I wouldn't be surprised if it stayed that way. The Umineko anime was generally not so well-received by most fans of the VN for not being a particularly good adaptation.

    I still don't get what they'd take out of Slayers. The dub was pretty tame to begin with. Maybe some of the blood?

    Probably. Since, if it was aimed at young'uns, as we all know, we can't have any blood whatsoever. Physical violence is still basically okay, but blood, obviously not. Or any guns or explosions, those would have to go.

    Going by the logic used for censorship of Looney Tunes, anyway, which we all know are for children because they're animated.

    Ya know, for kids!

    Okay, so basically, my point is, if you need to censor something at all, you might want to rethink what demographic you're trying to push it toward. I got sidetracked completely.

    Good clip though. Jeez, that was dark.
