Sym-Bionic Titan. Only Toonami.
SPOILERS ARE NOT TOLERATED. Please, no talks of future episodes, events, and etc! All spoilers must be sent through PM! This talkback is ONLY about this episode.
I am also a bit on confused on why Titan is a weekly thread and Thunder Cats is a single thread.
Huge comics fan,anime reviewer,animation watcher, I help run a Toonami site(you can follow it on Twitter @ToonamiNews)
I would guess because Sym-Bionic still has a bigger fanbase than the Thundercats reboot did.
Well this show reminded me of Fullmetal Panic for some reason. For you first time viewers will like this show.
One other thing as far as the three main characters
Funny you should mention Eureka Seven. I wasn't going to mention here, but since you brought it up. It won't be too long till 1: 30 am is the Kari Wahlgren hour. Two of my favorite Kari characters, including my absolute favorite, that being the one on Eureka Seven.
Plus, Titan is right after Eureka Seven(this is where Zoombie replied to me in my original post ) so it could definitely reach one last portion of a TZ discussion before people tune off for the night.
As for two, I think we can infer that the first part happened, and I'm pretty sure that:
I forgot this show is airing on Adult Swim. Good! Sym-Bionic Titan impressed the hell out of me when I watched it during its original premise.
If the first episode doesn't exactly thrill with originality, it bursts with everything else. The characters are all introduced beautifully. I love how these teenagers aren't the kind to spew out one-liners and dialogues to appeal to a younger audience in a vain attempt to be "cool." Granted, there is a justification of them being aliens, but they're the primary focus and I love that they can hold a conversation without pulling a dated slang.
The animation is simply gorgeous. I love the character designs and the older, 70s/80s anime-like appeal that really works here. I love the detail and texture of the Titan itself, I love that the action is really action. They don't resort to cheap comic book-like still shots because Gennedy can one up that and create brilliant choreographs. I love the subtle techno music and how atmospheric it can. It's a familiar show that uses unfamiliar conventions and though it's cancelled, I'm glad Adult Swim gave it another chance.
Did I mention how much I love this show?
Aaaaaaaaaand, we're back.
And this is the part where thousands of people die.
I really enjoyed the first episode. And was legit surprised how mature this show feels.
Glad to see that this show is finally being re-aired. Always felt that it would work as a Adult Swim/Toonami show. At worst I hope that this exposure warrants a epic movie length feature to properly end the show. I doubt that I'll be able to hang out till 2 AM to see it, but I will definitely DVR it
