Considering the fact that Adult Swim might revive Toonami (they did it last weekend for April Fools, and are now considering reviving it for more than a weekend joke), so you could always look forward to the real thing for nostalgia.
Ya the more I think about it- Bringing back Toonami to the real cartoon network wouldn't be that great. They are not going to bring our favorite old cartoons back they would just put new shows in a Toonami format with Tom there to introduce them.
but thats the thing: screw cartoon network, it can have all it's little baby's first american modern day "anime" that it wants, give us our own channel called toonami, with all the ye ol' japanese anime, with the occasional american one like dexter or Johnny and, ofcourse, Jack, with a few of the modern day anime's rendered worthy (tiger and bunny would probably be put on due to peer presure and stuff like that) and yeah... that would be the best channel on foxtel or whatever you people have...
Don't be so sure. A lot of the shows you watched on Toonami as a kid were pretty old, especially the anime shows. Those were sometimes from the 80's. Hell, there was a decade lag between DBZ airing in Japan and airing on Toonami. By the time they aired the first episode in America they were wrapping up GT in Japan.
I think what BojacPrime meant was that it was the old shows he/we watched. Anything new would be new regardless of how recent it had been produced. Frankly, with this kind of set-up, it seems like they can both satisfy nostalgic fans and subtly introduce new stuff as well. They obviously get a huge spike in viewings whenever DBZ comes on so I doubt the old stuff would go away. But, to keep programming "fresh," relatively speaking, it seems like it would be smart to introduce a few "newer" things to whet peoples interest
having Toonami back has been a blessing- they actually have no problems showing great shows and actually show the full season of a tv show before replacing it. whats also great is that they replace great quality tv shows with other great quality tv shows. so keep watching Toonami faithful.
