Good and bad news this week. The good, dropping Attack on Titan for the night increased the ratings across the board immensely showing us numbers we haven't seen in months. Also, the schedule change was completely unadvertised outside of Tumblr which makes the numbers look even better

The bad, apparently they still aren't good enough, because before the hour cut for 1/31 could even take place Toonami has lost 3:30-5:30 AND 11:30 starting 2/7. Cutting Toonami down to a mere 3 and 1/2 hour 12-3:30 run. Kill la Kill will still start on 2/7 at 12:30

With that, here are the ratings

11:30 Dragon Ball Z Kai 0.8 1321
12:00a Naruto: Shippuden 0.7 1000
12:30a Inuyasha: The Final Act 0.6 865
1:00a One Piece 0.6 858
1:30a Gurren Lagann 0.5 747
2:00a Deadman Wonderland 0.5 733
2:30a Bleach (r) 0.5 708
3:00a Space Dandy 0.5 681
3:30a Cowboy Bebop 0.4 627
4:00a Ghost in Shell: 2nd Gig 0.4 606
4:30a IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix 0.4 601
5:00a Samurai Jack 0.5 663

What is wrong with you.

Increased presence of Anime-Series on Television should be a good thing.
>>
>>120515485
I don't watch the new Toonami, and I'm not really interested in most of the shows other than CB, IGPX, GitS, and Samurai Jack, but I don't have a problem with Toonami threads being on /a/, it doesn't violate any rules at all.

What are they doing for the remaining 2 and half hours? rerun what they just aired like they did when TN came back?
>>
>>120516505
Fits /a/ pretty well, 90% of the shows are anime and the majority of you started watching anime thanks to toonami and others 'cartoon' channels.

I've got mixed feelings about Toonami. On one hand, there isn't really any reason to bother watching anime on television any more and dubs are usually shit. On the other hand, it was probably Toonami and Adult Swim that got me so interested in anime in the first place.

The CG is very simple, but it won't bother you unless you hate CG in all forms.

The story is still pretty good. S2 and Liz are still kind of bleh though.

I was fucking watching IGPX. Unless they can pull another Space Dandy Toonami is re-dead in a couple of months.

>>120518527
Kill la Kill coming in February, though I don't know why they're airing it at 12:30 after DBZ Kai. Seriously, DBZ Kai is probably one of the most boring anime in this whole block.

The bigger problem is that with DBZ Kai, Shippudenn, One Piece, and Inuyasha, 2 of their 3 hours are just long-running shounen anime from years back.

$6 million US so that they can actually bid on anime or fund true simuldubs.

Funi's got their simuldub project going on, and that might lead to some stuff getting on Toonami if it's action-y enough.

This thread is pathetic. A guy asks why it isn't related to /a/, actually giving a oppertunity for you to explain yourself and not even 5th grade level writing is given.


You just give one sentence complaining that you don't like is and say fuck off.
Why did the nods say that it should be on /co/?
What you don't explain is that it was because /a/ endlessly complained about normalfags and newfags would "flood into /a/" if you allowed toonami threads. It is only because of endless and shallow complaint that you git your way even though toonami alone should be allowed here. But things have changed now. We now have Digimon ans Naruto threads successfully running everyday. There's no excuse anymore to not have toonami threads other that "I don't want it, so nobody else can have it :'("

You can't even give a paragraph.

Meh, it was nice during the 90s and early 2000s. I don't think those eras weren't without their flaws but there were series that were produced with both audiences in mind and quite a few of them were pretty good. I agree though its not a good thing or a bad thing for that matter. Its just an direction anime could possibly take in the coming years.

Local TV station doesn't = national Anime block for United Statians.

If yugioh was being played on some national block you sure as hell could refer to a live watch on the yugioh threads that pop up here.

So if I understand correctly, the new schedule will be:

DBZ Kai
Kill la Kill
Naruto Shippuden
Inuyasha Final Act
Gurren Lagann
One Piece
Deadman Wonderland

How long is Inuyasha? 26 episodes? Because having 4 timeslots they could put new/recent stuff in isn't too bad. Maybe put in Bahamut, T&B, etc.

How important is it to expose the next generation of western anime lovers?

It's not my fault Japan can't handle the clock ticking over past midnight and would get confused if someone said it was 12:30 am.

But anyway, my point about this is: There's a scene in Hannibal where someone cuts off their own nose and then eats it, or there's also a scene where someone cuts open the skull of a living person and then feeds them a piece of their own brain, yet this is censored in JoJo's.

Japan censorship is fucking awful.
>>
>>120520595

It would have to air daily before sundown for one.

Why? Simple. Only people who browse /a/ marathon whole series in a day and some of us don't even do that. A lot of us might have four or five or six series in the backlog and watch one episode of each a day. A western timeslot showing anime needs to imitate our viewing habits on the compute enough that we just say "well, I don't need to go through the trouble waiting for my PC to load up, they're playing the episodes I was going to watch anyway."

Secondly, it would need original programming or to work out deals with distributors to air series in both the states and nip land simulatenously to prevent the episode from being on the internet for too long before it airs on Western television. This would require a greater collaboration between Japanese and American distributors and/or studios. Why am I going to bother watching a bunch of shows I can just get on Netflix or I can just download of the torrent sites at anytime. Even just playing the episode a day earlier than any fansubber can put it online can increase ratings.

Another good idea is to have simultaneous live streaming with limited ads, so people who can't make it home to the TV can just watch the shit on their phones. Also, prizes and other goodies for people who bother to watch and only those who bother watch are good incentives as well. Something like Toonami could be successful in this day and age if it wasn't so unwilling to adapt.

I'm just saying, there's nothing wrong with Japan trying to hide that stuff. At least violence isn't publicly sanctioned like it is in the west.

Say what you want about the show, but Space Dandy's dub was good even though it used a few of the same old Funi VA's. People blame the VA's, but a lot of times it's a matter of the effort put into the work by the scriptwriters and voice coaches and directors. It helps when the English and Japanese scripts are written at the same time and when there's a lot of money and time put into the English version of the show. It also helps when the VA's like the material themselves and are allowed to have fun with it.
>>
>>120521370
>I used to stay up late at night all the time and watched anime that my parents wouldn't have approved of.
But now kids can just go on the internet and watch much worse things, that's my point. We don't need shitloads of gore on tv when anyone who wants to see it can find it online in two seconds
>>120521446
Fucking shoot yourself, I've never been to reddit. I just think that the west has it's priorities fucked up in what it does and doesn't censor. They can't say "fuck", but they can show cannibalism?
>>
>>120521268
As far as I know since the Toonami revival they haven't censored anything they aired. I didn't watch Black Lagoon which was probably the show with the most questionable content they've shown so far, though. (Specifically talking about stuff like the twins or that part where Revy says "Is she taking it up the ass?"

I guess Kill La Kill will be the true test of US censorship, there's no way that scene in episode 17 doesn't get censored.

I'm saying that US television won't censor violence, though, be it in an animated form or live action form, as evidenced by shows like Hannibal.

To this day I still believe that statement about the dub lacking foreshadowing is complete bullshit. 2 seasons in and there is nothing hinting at an overarching storyline other than it doesn't matter if the characters all die in an episode or not and that one guy wants to find Dandy for unexplained reasons.

>>
>>120521511
The only censorship is beeping of swear words and some things that they were forced to censor by Japan. Deadman Wonderland is one example; the episodes they were provided were pre-censored. Gurren Lagann Episode 6 was censored because Japan doesn't want to let the original bathhouse episode be broadcastin the US, so they don't even offer the airing rights to that.
>>
>>120521582
Again, I don't understand this. Why should really fucked up gore be shown on public TV when I could find real gore online in a minute or two? Kids will see shit anyways, I don't know why we freak out over anything sexual yet we have no problem with showing cannibalism and mutilation at 10pm.
>>
>>120521686
I don't think even League of Legends Championship Match gets more than a million viewers.
>>
>>120521704
Yeah, beeping of swear words is understandable since they did that for Samurai Champloo on AS back in the day. (At least they made them in the theme of the show and used record scratches for the bleeps, like how Metalocalypse used bad strums)
>>
>>120521704
It's just kind of funny of the double standards both Japan and the US have in regards to censorship. US doesn't like sex or nudity, yet Hannibal airs at 10PM and has realistic depictions of cannibalism and extreme violence, Japan doesn't like violence in animated shows and censors things that even air late at night, but has no qualms showing cameltoe of an 11 year old girl.
>>
>>120521881
While it's not sexualised loli, Western Europe is also pretty lax on the sex stuff while looking down on violence. I'm pretty sure the sex thing is just an Anglo puritan thing because all Anglo countries seem to censor that type of stuff when they can.
