I should stop DVRing what I want to watch on Toonami and actually catch it at the right times.
>>
So, Toonami is bound to replay FLCL at some point, and good chance before the premier. Maybe twice for reasons.

Which slot would FLCLs1 go into?

Bebop and Outlaw Star end in March, thats 6 weeks of FLCL hype. But, GITS ends in May and thats some solid Summer time for FLCL, but at the end of the block.

Meanwhile, JoJo and Dandy end in August, and between being near the end of the year, 4 episodes per month, promised 12 total and the natural 6 reran episodes. thats some kinda math right there.

i forgot what I was talking about

Welp back to forcing discussion by replying to myself. They said 2018, which can even mean december. Going to put my money on FLCLs1 reruns replacing JoJo or Dandy, and FLCLs2 and/or s3 premier after that. Which will eat up the rest of that month and the next month.

So October is when I think FLCL s2/3 will air on Toonami

TV is down across the board, but we're a fair way off from TV dying. Toonami is just in a different bracket and will die off quicker because the content it hosts is foreign and thus prior to the internet delayed in arrival. Now that the problem has been solved, no need for it now.

Here's a hard to swallow fact: Dandy isn't that great of a show. Take it's world premiere memories away and it wouldn't be looked upon nearly as highly as it is by these threads. A handful of its episode are top notch. The rest are at best mediocre

the problem with them going full stream is there's no more reason to have Tom and Sara, as there's no more reason to have bumps

without Tom and Sara, Toonami is just the name of a service. We don't have Crunchyroll generals. Or Netflix generals
>>
>>98665899
why the hell would they make it a stream? Nobody would watch it anyway
>>
>>98670874
Going stream is completely pointless since the bigger streams will get the most desirable content. Toonami will be one of those niche services everyone hates because they grab 1-2 series and put them behind a paywall no one is interested in.
>>
>>98665899
What kind of stream? Like just a random assortment of anime that they show on adult swim website or a genuine streaming service? The former is lame, and the latter is unfeasible
>>
did toonami get some kind of financial incentive to air black clover, or did they actually think people wanted to watch it?
>>
>>98671199
Weekly streams of new shows.

Say you can watch whatever Toonami has to offer whenever you want like normal. But once a week there is a broadcast for "new" shows, like borderline simuldub stuff
>>
>>98671800
funi and crunchyroll invested heavily into black clover's production, hoping it would become the next naruto

it released in japan and on stream, and people weren't impressed. in a panic, funi and crunchy gave it to toonami for free because they need the free advertising to generate hype so that clover becomes the next naruto

Probably not, but they probably got the show for barely anything. Demarco will air anything so long as he doesn't have to pay much

I think they will not wait until after a show, but just jam in the rerun around midnight sometime and have s2/3 air afterwards in same slot

Can you retards ever for once in your lives at least pretend to know what the fuck you're even talking about? The manga moves relatively solid numbers and is a minor hit so it eventually got an anime. Wow who would have thought! If CR even invested a cent it wouldn't be on a god damn antiquated TV block nobody watches, it would just be on CR exclusively.

Did you honestly expect something different? The amount of mental gymnastics and armchair quarterbacking the people in these threads go through to create a reason for a show they don't like being around is insane.

>>

Well the back end of the block is pretty dead and most folks take off after dragonball, but with FLCL2/3 hype they probably should keep FLCL1 rerun up pretty high on the block so 2/3 can take its place

Nobody in Japan wants to pay for those. Trigun barely scraped by over there, Bleach's popularity tanked after Aizen was defeated, Cowboy Bebop needs a continuation as much as FLCL does (zero), and Deadman has been dead and forgotten for years
>>
>>98680060
Bebop has no real place to .. go from.
Spike dead
Vicious dead
Ed with parent
Ein with Ed
Jet up in the air
Faye up in the air.

So unless you want a slice of life sitcom tier ex-cop and petulant lush trying to work together to catch the bounty of the week while fighting off constant sexual tension, no.

At least with FLCL Haruko has the ability to find another family to terrorize, or more space alien shit to do.

I'm not saying bebop should continue but I really really want this.
>>
>>98680522
At the end of the series they find out faye is pregnant and they name the baby Spike followed up by a montage of the baby growing up with a cameo of a teenage Ed doing wacky shit with baby spike. Got it. sending recommendation to Japan right now.
>>
>>98680060
>>Could have invested in another season of Deadman Wonderland.
ew why
>>
>>98644403
Is Super on the Zamasu stuff yet? I've been meaning to get back to it, but I've just felt fed up with everything on Toonami for the past month.
>>
>>98681888
Jet's ex makes a return as a villain. her bf got killed in prison and she wants revenge
Faye's doctors make a return to use her for awhile in exchange for information on her past
Ed's father contacts them for help locating Ed, treasure hunting episode right here.
Medium comedy episode where shit looks bleak and they know it because of their track record but turns out profitable/successful in the end by luck.
>>
Do you think higurashi/when they cry would make a fit for Toonami?
>>
>>98682049
Because the manga is complete and they could do a proper adaptation
>>
>>98678802
Aniplex paid Toonami to air the original SAO, so Toonami getting something for nothing/a benefit isn't unheard of
>>
>>98679466
And even more people will leave for a mid block rerun
>>
>>98682836
It feels weird putting the pre-show hype at the end of the block like that, and then moving the s2 premier up some.
>>
>>98680060
> could have invested in more cowboy bebop

wow I didn't know people like this existed
>>
>>98684144
Who hasn't already seen FLCL? It doesn't need to be hyped. Jack wasn't aired on Toonami to hype the new season
>>
>>98680060
You are thinking about it the wrong way. This isn't like Big O where AS puts the bulk of the money down and owns it forever. These FLCL seasons were happening regardless, it's just AS decided to chip in some since they like FLCL so much

The dreams of Toonami just reviving shows left and right should have died in about 2013
>>
>>98684596
yeah it was, only 3 or so episodes but yes, jack ran befores5
>>
>>98680060
Bleach and Trigun would be monstrously expensive, and there's zero reason to be the main financier when for a fraction of the cost you could make more seasons of Rick and Money Tree
>>
>>98682803
Nobody gives a fuck about Deadman Wonderland, much less the Japanese who would have to make it. If there are far more successful manga with crap/abrupt/anime original endings that never got another anime, why should Deadman?
>>
>>98685206
R&M fad is over, even if season 4 comes out.. I dont think it will do well
>>
>>98685303
If AS is so eager to waste money on Toonami then why not? It was fairly well received here, Japan isn't gonna say no to a fat check even if it's for a show they don't like.

But anyway who cares? Once FLCL flops AS will never ever consider investing in anime again so it doesn't really matter
>>
>>98685469
>fad is over
Yea the women writers ruined the show. The majority of the soyboys who watch it though don't give a shit. How long has the pickle Rick meme been going strong? If it's that easy to get something to stick, Reddit and Meme has a bright future ratings wise
>>
>>98685469
>R&M fad is over
It's literally the most successful show in the history of the entire channel, with season 3 outperforming season 2 by a solid margin. I get that /co/ loves to shit on it now that it's become popular but c'mon now.
>>98685596
Because they're not going to pony up a "fat check". IG is doing most of the heavy lifting for FLCL. Nobody is going to do dick for Deadman
>>
>>98685469
>Adult Swim should fund a new season of Bleach! It's like they hate money or something!
>Ehhh... Rick and Morty is over. Probably shouldn't waste money on that dud.
The absolute state of Toonami fags
>>
>>98685729
I didnt say anything about Bleach.
>>
I haven't been watching since last year, I'll come back when FLCL premiers so I can experience the death of the block with the rest of you.
>>
>>98685469
Oh yeah man, the show that made a bunch of people in Pickle Rick shirts riot and assault McDonald's employees doesn't seem like much of a money maker
>>
>>98685782
>fleeting memes at the time
yup yeah my nostalgia rules out your reality *buuurp*
>>
>>98685841
>nostalgia
>literally just last year
You are retarded.
>>
>>98686008
and? google nostalgia, there is no minimum time requirement
>>
>>98685596
>Japan isn't gonna say no to a fat check even if it's for a show they don't like.
You have no idea how anime is made, do you? AS does not have enough fat checks to bankroll an anime series, not even a 6 episode one. No anime series is produced by a single investor, they are made by committees. When Toonami funds anime they buy their way onto a committee to secure unlimited broadcast rights for themselves in the US.

Now, if this were an IP that AS or Toonami controlled, something they had ownership of, then yeah they could just contract an anime studio and that's that. But that isn't the case. You're dealing with a series whose intellectual property is owned by a Japanese author and whose primary rights are controlled by a Japanese publisher. For any anime to happen you need to convince both the publisher and the author to say yes. And they probably won't if they don't see any profit in it for them.
>>
>>98681888

It's almost like you described the ending to IBO
>>
>we want to have one new original per year
Jason Demarco - 2017
>lmao Toonami can't fund anything
>>
>>98687208
"We don't need Dragon Ball anymore." - Jason DeMarco.
>>
I thought DeMarco didn't like Fairy Tail. How the hell did it become a "possibility"?
>>
>>98687364
It's popular and they need rating.
>>
>>98682192
yes it is
>>
>>98687364
He never said that. The word on FT has always been they don't have the space. Well guess what's happening next year?
>>
>>98687208
>1 original per year
>Jack was 10 episodes and took nearly 3 years and had to be rerun a fuckton of times
And you believed that shit lmao
>>
>>98682821
back in the day Bandai paid Toonami to air Gundam
>>
>>98687561
>Well guess what's happening next year?
Adult Swim airing all Saturday night?
>>
>>98687826
DBS, HxH, and BC ending.
>>
>>98687859
DBS is still airing new episodes in Japan though and Toonami is way behind.
>>
>>98687826
A certain possibility, but if not this >>98687859 but not Super, we have that till 2020
>>
>>98687859
DBS has enough episodes to last like two more years since the Toonami broadcast is so far behind
>>
>>98687884
DBS airs its last episode in a month
>>
>>98687896
>>98687884
>>98687905
I thought Super would be over by 2019 according to this>>98646354
>>
>>98687914
In Japan
>>
>>98687916
Hmm maybe I miscounted marathons then.

Oh well it doesn't matter. There's no doubt in my mind Super will rerun
>>
>>98690283
No it is a new system, same IP can only bump so many times in an hour.
>>
>>98690310
It's Thursday anyway, mods need to flip the autosage on

Fuck you, I am starting to like black clover
I have hope for FLCL2+3
rerun back half best part of the night

Just watch part 1 Naruto.
>>
>>98692084
Never got into naruto. by the time I tuned into Toonami it was so far in I just said fuck it and used that timeslot then and now for fapping
>>
>>98646354

Fuck everything.

>>98693524
Original, unfixed Twintail on Toonami when? It has plenty of action
>>
>>98694245
right after the uncut elfen lied movie
>>
...
>>
I cant wrap my head around Toonami. Why bother when I can just pirate subbbed anime fot free?

Unless Toonami does Western Animelike originals theres literally no reason for it to exist.
>>
>>98695372
Same could be said for all of tv
>>
>>98696597
Yet most other channels have some sort of original programming that's domestically produced and aired before it makes its way onto some streaming platform so there's some sort of draw
>>
>>98695372
So you can shitpost with anons while you watch it. So that you can watch it on your tv without fiddling with cables. So that maybe, maybe, you can be exposed to something really good that you wouldn't have sought out on your own.
>>
>>98695372
its mostly the threads. one week I got globally banned for a few days because of a necrophilia thread on /jp/ and watching toonami without anyone to post with was kinda bleh. still neat enough to watch said block but thats the other side of the sword, I cant binge watch anything, anime or live action
>>
>>98695372
It's fun to doomsay the block's lifespan.

>tfw they used to play Stardust Rebellion all the time

I still watched it though
>>
Huh, the Outlaw Star Hot Springs episode is TV-MA, no S
>>
>>98700510
we got edited titties recently in the past, no doubt in my mind that the black line which was used for nipples will be edited out.

also what is S?
>>
>>98700702
>>
>>98700834
sex?
>>
>>98701073
Sexual content. Which means there has to be something actually sexual in the show. Hot springs nudity isn't sexual so it doesn't get the S
>>
>>98701230
So Code Geass was MA?
>>
>>98701657
I don't remember. It's been far too long. Also ratings conditions change all the time. How things work now might now be how they did a decade ago
>>
>>98702326
Are Neilson boxes still relevant? I know many cable companies went digital, and then there is streaming.

surely there are other ways to see how many viewers there are now, right?

Like what if demarco and the rest of [as] knows about shit we dont know and they are on their phones in an office jacking one another off with the recent lootbox money saying to one another "if only they knew"
>>
>>98695372
A lot of the people who watch Toonami don't otherwise watch anime, this block is their only exposure to it as a medium. Most of these people don't actually like anime, they're just in it for nostalgia. Then besides them, the next largest group are obsessive fanboys who watch their favorite show (i.e. DBZ, Naruto, Jojo etc). So if you don't fit the above two criteria (watching out of nostalgia or because you are a mindless fan drone obligated to consume every bit of your favorite thing) then Toonami wouldn't have any appeal to you.
>>
>>98697279
Toonami has a little of that. But the bulk of it isn't. But back in the late 90s and early 00s anime was a lot more exotic and hard to get access to for most people. There weren't readily available simulcast streams, you had to know your way around the fansub scene and IRC. So having anime on TV was a big deal back then.

These days it doesn't serve nearly the same purpose.
