    Why didn't they repeat Deadman or Casshern but they reran the six episodes of Fooly Cooly over and over again?

    Any ideas?

    They no longer have the rights to air Deadman Wonderland and Casshern Sins. They still have FLCL, and I assume the reason why it's been aired so much is because it brings in ratings.

    Simple, Toonami managed to pay less for FUNi's shows by only airing them for one run.

    FLCL was acquired years ago, back when Adult Swim was still young.

    Williams Street had a larger budget back then, so they could afford to air shows much longer.

    Since they're running Toonami on a shoestring budget, they can't afford that same luxury nowadays.

    As Ishtar said, they only snagged Deadman Wonderland and Casshern Sins for one run. Paying for a single run must be much cheaper than buying the airing rights for an entire year (or however long typical acquisition contracts are set up).

    FLCL, on the other hand, is part of the Adult Swim Action trinity, alongside Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell; three series that Adult Swim consistently renews the rights to, to the point of seeming to perpetually own them (though this is now true of GitS). Whereas Bebop is one of WS' favorite anime, and they somehow now outright own GitS, FLCL gets to be the show they drag out every so often for either schedule filler or just a special run. It's very short too, so the airing rights must cost much less than most other shows.

    Not only is it cheaper for them to just air the show once, but i think it may even make for an interesting ratings strategy. By changing the shows the way they do, Toonami can actually make sure that their is ALWAYS something new to watch during the block. It keeps things fresh...

    Was the only problem, like I heard, with Detective Conan, the number of episodes? They've aired Bleach, Family Guy and to an extent Naruto WHICH HAVE LOTS OF episodes.

    It got poor ratings and Adult Swim didn't treat it with much respect. They pushed it further into the night around halfway through the premieres, which made the ratings even worse still.

    Guess this means no Code Geass ether huh?

    Theoretically no Code Geass but they got Eureka 7 back so it isn't entirely out of the question. I'd prefer they not re-air it myself and while Bandai is being restructured it may not be an option.
