So I'm, like cruising the web...
I turn on my Tv
And the awesome robot with honest opinions shows up on my screen rating Mass Effect 3
Already Im awestruck seeing this relic critique an awesome game
Then DBZ comes on (original version, not the sissy Nicktoons edited bull)
(then some other anime )
And now, YU YU HAKASHO!!! (did i spell that right?)
I honestly have mixed feelings about its return.
Mostly because its playing exactly what it played when it stopped airing.
It might have started as an April Fool's joke, but I think the ratings last night will reflect something.
Toonami still has a lot of potential. They were foolish for canceling it.
The Facebook page for Toonami gained like 3k "likes" since I started paying attention to it last night.
& people are sending Cartoon Network feedback asking that Toonami come back.
I'm really hoping something comes of this.
I've been staying gold for so long.
They showed older shows because of nostalgia.
It wouldn't have the same impact as a joke even if they played different material.
Thought that was... obvious.
Though I'm pretty sure the 3rd OVA of Tenchi never aired on TV at all until last night.
Also, I'm pretty certain CN lost rights to most of those shows a long time ago.
& getting the actual voice of Tom to participate?
Quite an elaborate joke, adult swim. Well played.
If it was a joke then it was a great one, such epicness
And if they do keep Toonami, it'll probably be on Saturday's which is Adult Swims usual Anime night
Without a doubt.
If it was just a joke, it was the most amazing joke in the history of ever.
That's what I figure as well.
That it will take the normal Saturday night/Sunday morning slot, if it stays.
Which I would absolutely love to see.
Some people have the theory that it was a sort of test.
To see if the ratings improved.
If it went well, the might consider keeping it. If not? They would play it off as a joke.
Sounds like a reasonable theory to me. But, sadly, a theory nonetheless.
But I am certain that the ratings last night were higher than they have been in the longest time, regardless.
I hope it wasn't a joke. That would be really mean.
