    I like that come July 2nd they'll have 4 different shows airing 12:30-1:30 on weekdays.

    I'm surprised to see Lucy outside of DVR Theater and welcome a weekday run of Superjail but sneaking Eric Andre in there is typical Adult Swim shenanigans. I can't wait to see it flop in that slot.

    A whole night of Childrens Hospital and I mean a WHOLE night. 9 hours of different episodes assuming that second 206 was supposed to be 106. Or maybe they just needed to repeat 1. I'm looking forward to seeing how that does. It might make Toonami look good that week or prove that some original comedies can survive without FOX shows giving them a boost. I dare say that is their first all live-action night and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    Speaking of live-action, The Mighty Boosh is back in DVR Theater!

    Not speaking of live-action, Home Movies will reset to episode 1 and begin a run in order on Saturdays.

    I'm a bit disappointed that Black Dynamite will not be right before Toonami but I'm sure Adult Swim looked at the recent ratings and saw the 11PM Boon was weaker than the 11:30 airing despite Family Guy beating both and decided putting Black Dynamite between Family Guy and The Boondocks would yield better results than putting Dynamite between Boon and Bleach.

    FLCL joins Toonami giving Ghost in the Shell a much needed break. Too bad FLCL has been played to death as well but it's sure to only be temporary and they didn't have a whole lot of options for that 2AM/5AM slot to begin with. No sense making a big schedule shake up when Deadman and Bebop will both finish their runs two weeks later making ample opportunity for a more notable schedule shake-up.

    I can see people using FLCL's addition to the line-up as more fuel to their "this isn't really Toonami" fires. Sigh...

    And yet, those same people are the ones who would welcome PSG with open arms. :shrug:

    Very much so.

    I know Viz is claiming that Neon Alley won't affect TV deals but do you think they're doing a little bit of lying through their teeth? I mean, Neon Alley is absolutely reliant on new content just to stay alive. They can't have new, cutting edge air on Adult Swim or it blunts whatever chance Neon Alley has of breaking through.

    Or they want to cover all the bases. Not everyone has a PS-Er, major video game console that's not the Wii or 360. Not to mention it would just be silly to produce dubs only to be shown on a small subscription based channel & later released onto DVD. Only those who are anime fans already will go for it and Tiger & Bunny needs much more than that.

    Like I said before how does a service on one system trash any hope of TV airtime? Funimation does the same thing.

    I'm going to take what Viz said with a grain of salt but if Deadman Wonderland and Casshern Sins prove anything, it's that just about anything is possible for Toonami.
