Toonami has returned.

www.adultswim.com/shows/toonam…

For 11 years Toonami was the defining block of television for a generation. It almost single-handedly brought Anime into the mainstream, and gave millions of viewers a higher sense of philosophy and purpose with shows that had more depth than other contemporary animation had to offer (DCAU, Samurai Jack, and other outliers aside).

I witnessed first hand Toonami's final broadcast in 2008 from my apartment. I grieved with the rest of my generation that grew up with it and saw it in its better days... the days before Cartoon Network's decline.

Do not expect this to be a time capsule. Do not celebrate the return of exactly what had been. Toonami was never  stagnant, never "the same" for too long. Look forward to the new and the exciting. Hope and pray for the return of Anime programs which can hold a candle to the boundary breaking line-ups that made Toonami great years ago.


Once again, the revolution will be televised.

OMG you're back! =D How goes your art? Have you been keeping up with Lupin since I last heard from you? Green VS Red, Lupin vs Detective Conan, supposedly a new TV series coming/announcement this fall... it's awesome!

Heheh. Yeah, I'm just as much a Lupin maniac as I was a few years ago. The rumored new series is what's got me most excited. It's got my mind racing...will it be an adaptation of one of the newer manga series like Y or will it be an entirely new generation of Lupin with a new jacket and everything? So exciting!

So how have you been, good sir?
