A few have mentioned Zeta Gundam. Let me remind you that it hasn't even been that long since they finished up with G Gundam and Char's Counterattack. Considering the upcoming releases of those 2, and considering that it would take atleast 6 months to translate, dub and prepare for release Zeta Gundam, there is no point whatsoever in having it in an atleast somewhat legitimate prediction thread. A 'What do you want on ASA' thread is one thing, but this thread doesn't seem like one to me considering we'd get the typical well deserved flames and complaints about it by now. Z Gundam won't even be released in this country until 2003 at the earliest (it could certainly be even longer) so there really isn't a point in mentioning it all since a show that hasn't even been dubbed sure as hell doesn't have a chance of showing up on the block
Anyway, I frankly don't know what to predict. There's no track record to say what they'll do. The block is still fairly new, and has had few high profile additions. There's still no proof that they'll go to a more mature route yet, atleast on ASA, since we've had no additions to the block so far. So all I'll say is that it won't suprise me to see Pilot Candidate removed and replaced with Big O when its current run is finished. Of course by then it'll be fall and we might have new shows meaning there's no point in rerunning Big O (unless one of them is season 2 of course, but I highly doubt anything will be ready by then).
And enough with Gundam Wing! -_- I don't care how many times they aired other stuff, GW was aired a ridiculous amount of times and doesn't deserve an ASA spot. The show's 49 eps long as well, meaning the odds of it finishing on the block is unlikely. As for Tenchi, what you're forgetting, among other things, is that Tenchi started a number of months after Gundam Wing did while getting yanked only shortly after GW did during that period of hell last year. Its also 65 eps, 16 more than GW. And while GW got run on the midnight run over and over again throughout 2000, Tenchi got one chance there and was yanked mid run. I speak from experience because I was screwed over the first time watching the show since they cancelled it right in the middle. I wouldn't say Tenchi is a good comparison to GW, atleast on this matter. Regardless, its a case of 'well everyone else is doing it so I should too!'. Thats something little kids say, not people who work at a successful television network. Gundam Wing won't return, atleast on ASA.
