    Actually, I think this should be like RockmanDash's Thundercat's thread. Title should be: "Sym-Bionic Titan on Toonami" thread.

    I am also a bit on confused on why Titan is a weekly thread and Thunder Cats is a single thread.

    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.

    :p Gah, I deleted my post so I could completely reword what I was saying. You got a point there though!


    Well, the main reason why I made the Thundercats a single thread is because it's on such a late 2:30am slot that the discussion amount just wasn't going to be worth writing weekly topic creations. I think Thundercats has plenty of fans, but it's just in that really awkward late slot where the majority of Toon Zone is sleeping. It also makes it much easier on me when keeping one main talkback flowing.

    Plus, Titan is right after Eureka Seven(this is where Zoombie replied to me in my original post :p) so it could definitely reach one last portion of a TZ discussion before people tune off for the night.

    So apparently 10 episodes were written for the non-existent season 2, which makes me wonder if Toonami could get the series resurrected for a season 2. I doubt it considering the time slot, but at least we get to see it again one more time.

    Well I don't know if that is true or not. But if so, what I wanted.


    So much stuff, they could cover it in 10 episodes. Number 2 is the most important to me.

    It is true, he posted it on his reddit here: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/10l1an/i_am_genndy_tartakovsky_the_director_of_hotel/

    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?

    There's actually a Help "Sym-Bionic Titan get Another Season" facebook page. Been around for over a year.

    I'm glad most of the responses are mostly, "Yay SBT is back" or "Why didn't I see this show on it's first run?" rather than the Western Animation haters.

    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
