    Toonami Expands to 6 Hours; Sym-Bionic Titan and new Thundercats join lineup

    Like This Thread!

    Demarco's posted some MAJOR news on twitter

    Okay #toonami fans, since it's ****ing leaked b/c the internet sucks, here's the news: starting next week, Toonami expands to 6 hours...
    https://twitter.com/Clarknova1/statu...43471853125632

    ...from midnight-6am, without repeating from 3a-6a. I'm happy to announce that we will also be running the great SYM-BIONIC TITAN, and...
    https://twitter.com/Clarknova1/statu...43722492133376

    ...the also great new THUNDERCATS! Also, BEBOP will make it's return, running from 5a-6a. Finally, this Saturday we'll start running...
    https://twitter.com/Clarknova1/statu...43906886328320
    ...a new lineup spot that gives you the whole rundown, which will air every night for a whole. Hope this news makes you guys as happy...
    This is pretty awesome. though it's kind of dissapointing Bebop is back so quickly...wonder what are the odds that if Thundercats and Titan do well here we may get more episodes of them...

    Curious though, if there really are no repeats then that leaves at least one hour of content unaccounted for. It'll probably just be AS's catalog stuff but maybe we could end up with a couple of new shows.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it...if one of the empty slots is a new show then it really could be Index. It would match up much better in terms of timing with the DVD release than if it replaced Sins.

    Sym-Bionic Titan and Thundercats take the 2am hour, while Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Ghost in the Shell and Cowboy Bebop all double up for the 3am-6am timeslots. Full schedule here: http://schedule.adultswim.com/servle...2&timeZone=EST

    Ah...kind of odd doubling up the last 3 hours like that. Would be cool if they could get some of their catalog stuff into those hours and give it a bit more variety. Maybe replace one of the FMA: B slots when it finishes it's run again.

    It's good to see Toonami go 6 hours, however I wish they let Cowboy Bebop rest a little longer eventhough I like the show, though it could be a placeholder. As for Thundercats and Sym-Bionic Titan, I have no problem with them being on the block, though I wish Thundercats gets a 3rd season.

    So, at last Toonami 2.0 isn't anime-only anymore. Good. Titan was the best take on super robots anyone can find outside of Japan, and way up there overall at that.

    Better here than nowhere for sure.But what a shame it is that it takes Adult Swim with the Toonami brand to reair two major action series that Cartoon Network used to run on Saturday mornings. New ThunderCats fits Toonami tradition but not so much Adult Swim, I have to say; it ultimately aimed too low and was generally too "safe" a show for that. Now then, let's see a home video release for Titan......

    With their episode counts, an hour is a boon for FMA Brotherhood and Ghost in the Shell. For BeBop, a bit much. I think the second episode is the first thing to go when it's time to add something else and they need room.
    I would suggest that it's not the medium, but the quality of perception and expression, that determines the significance of art. But what would a cartoonist know? -Bill Watterson

    Personally, I'm not that excited for Sym-Bionic Titan and Thundercats getting on the block. On one hand, it's nice that the block won't just be anime anymore and have a bit more diversity, but on the other hand, I wasn't a huge fan of either show, although I probably like Titan more than Thundercats and Titan probably fits on the block a bit better than the new Thundercats series. I was kind of looking forward to seeing the rest of Brotherhood again, but at least I might be able to get to sleep a bit earlier than I have on Saturday nights for awhile. I may rewatch Sym-Bionic Titan to see if I feel any different about it, but I doubt I'll watch Thundercats again. It's nice that they've expanded the block to six hours, but considering that the last few hours are double repeats, a part of me thinks that they made that decision in an attempt to increase ratings for the first half of the block now that there isn't another chance to see those episode in the early morning slots.

    Well, I'll say I'm surprised. Would be nice to own some kind of DVR or something. I'm still living in the 80s with... get this... A VCR!!!!!

    I guess I'm okay with the double-ups, but I'd like to have seen "Durarara!!" in the lineup. (I've only ever seen one episode.. I think #20)

    I'm fine with diversity (and non-anime), I'll have my first looks at Titan and T-Cats.

    -- When I first heard 2-3am would be Titan and T-Cats, my first though was "No!" - only because I didn't start watching FMA:Brotherhood until Toonami returned, I'd say I caught it at a "decent" time.

    It would've been better if they had aired Big O, Deadman Wonderland, Durarara!!, or InuYasha instead of doubling up everything in the last hour, but I guess they have their reasons. I'm kind of surprised that they wouldn't want to repeat Bleach, but I guess this will bring up ratings since there's only one chance to watch it now.

    As for Sym-Bionic Titan and Thundercats returning, I am both surprised and excited at the same time. I loved Sym-Bionic Titan when it was on Cartoon Network, but I also hated how people on social networking sites, like YouTube, dismissed the show because of the scene where Kimmy "Booty-Quakes" it. Now that it's on Adult Swim, I hope more people will discover the show and possibly do well enough in ratings to get funded for another season.

    Doubling can have its major benefits of keeping viewers in for the entire hour than tuning them off to possible shows that they might not be interested in.

    As for the new schedule, I'm really loving the balance of the shows being presented. .

    I've never seen the Hotel Transylvania director's last show on Cartoon Network, but I've heard decent things about it.

    I am kind of annoyed, however, that they moved Ghost in the Shell back to the early morning slots when I was just starting to watch it again.

    Looks to me like they're trying to get through FMAB and GITS faster.

    They might have done this to test how the premieres will do without encores to take away potential viewers.

    I was asking for ThunderCats and Sym-Bionic Titan to air on Toonami. If Megas XLR shows up later I will be in heaven.

    I get the feeling the reason why Deadman didn't come back yet is they intend to air it earlier in the night when it comes back. Possibly when Casshern ends if they have nothing new to air then.

    At any rate this is a very interesting development. Perhaps they're no long able to sell ad-space on total day ratings.

    How exactly is this insulting? You never know this might end up doing good for the two series. Could possibly get them some new episodes ordered if they do well enough. You never know. I think it's great that these shows are on Toonami. Especially ThunderCats of all shows.

    honestly its more like an honour it gives both shows a shot at getting more episodes! in the past that has happened at least twice if memories serves right

    It's not insulting, its giving a great show and Thundercats, which I can't say because I haven't seen it, a fair chance. They were both cancelled prematurely and weren't even promoted after the first episode.

    Interesting seeing as how Toonami itself got a second chance.

    Interesting. Hope both shows do well. Who know they probably can pull a Family Guy/Futurama resurrection on us.
