Okay, if you haven't seen Golgo with a hooker yet, umm, well it's pretty self-explanatory. It borders on soft-core porn, in fact.

But for the most part it's no worse than your average CSI, NCIS, or whatnot.


Just because something was originally made in 1969 or whatever doesn't mean it hasn't since been reviewed and rated, or even edited (the woman's voice in Tom & Jerry cartoons is a good example of editing).

I'd be more excited about Toonami coming back if I didn't know their line up was going to suck, as it did in their last days and As Adult Swim's has done for several years now.

Jiggity Jig - Happy Dance - Jiggity Jig.

Not worried about their line-up. This is being spun up fairly fast, so it will not have had time for anything new or original to be added just yet.

Give them a little time.

Anything is generally better than nothing.

Well, apparently AS hinted that they were at least considering two new anime shows. img.ly/aI9A

Most people seem to think it's High School of the Dead and Angel Beats that are blotted out. That would be pretty cool, though I have to question how likely it would be. I would be pissed if they would just tease us like that though.

Toonami Revival to Have 'New Original Anime Programming'
Press release also reveals that return of block will be aired on Saturdays from 12-6 a.m.

A Wednesday press release released by Adult Swim, the cable and satellite network that is paired with Cartoon Network, has revealed that the network is developing "new original anime programming" for the return of the Toonami programming block. Previous series featured on the block will also make their return.

The release also reveals that the revived block will be shown once a week from midnight to 6 a.m. on Saturdays.

The company had asked its Twitter followers in April if they would want the block back. Cartoon Network temporarily brought back Toonami on April Fool's Day, with reruns of such anime as 'Dragon Ball Z', 'Mobile Suit Gundam Wing', 'Tenchi Muyo!', 'Outlaw Star', 'Blue Submarine No. 6', 'Trigun', and more. The marathon had even included newly produced bumper videos of Toonami's mascot T.O.M.

Cartoon Network ended Toonami in 2008 after an 11-year run.

What is "original anime programming"? Cartoon Network called crap like "Tom goes to the Mayor" "original programming", so I'm scared. If they do mean Angel Beats, or other anime shows that have already been released, then I'm officially calling shenanigans over the misuse of the term "original".

When Toonami went exclusively to Saturday night, it went there to die. As a true Toonami fan, it can't be Toonami until it is run primarily on weekday afternoons. I know all of you who saw Toonami in its prime know it to be true

Toonami's New Schedule to Be Kept Secret Until May 26

Jason DeMarco, former Toonami producer and recently promoted vice president of strategic marketing and promotions for Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, revealed via his Twitter account on Thursday that the revived Toonami block's schedule will remain a secret until its airing on May 26. ANN previously posted TV Guide's listing for Toonami's programming block, but DeMarco responded via Twitter, "That is NOT the lineup. But to be clear, I don't think that's a bad lineup."

The TV Guide listing included 'Cowboy Bebop', 'Bleach', 'Fullmetal Alchemist' and 'Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood', 'Durarara!!', 'FLCL', and 'Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG'.

Adult Swim, the cable and satellite network that is paired with Cartoon Network, revealed on Wednesday that it will bring back its Toonami programming block. Adult Swim's press release also revealed that "new original anime programming" is being developed for the return of the Toonami programming block. Previous series featured on the block will also make their return.
