@SwimMod_Luuv pretty sure this has been discussed a billion times, but yeah the notifications kind of suck on this site. For starters the only way to see it is with the link (obviously it's going to be fixed) but the only thing it shows is who upvoted your posts and if someone does the @ thing. Pretty sure it's planned, but yeah it should show you who quoted you, instead of a little pop up that sometimes shows on screen, and only lasts like 3 seconds.
Holy arfing gawd, dude. Hookworm. They don't leave on their own, they love to tear through your insides just for the hell of it.
You need a doctor's prescription for human-grade worm kill and I'd also start eating things with garlic in them. Garlic turns your blood into a worm repellent which will help the meds expel the nasty things. But doctor is important. You're shooting full grown worms out your arse, not eggs or larva. o.O
My brothers dog goes "arf." Now I think she's cussing at me.
As I said before, those 800,000 don't know what they're being robbed of.
Yeah but to be fair you don't know what could have gone there either. Since Fujiko was canned, no one knows what other shows were considered for the slot, and dwelling on what could have been will get you nowhere.
But quality doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is if it's a premiere or not, and everyone will magically like it more because it's a premiere since that's what ben would do, even if everyone else couldn't give less of a shit what aired or didn't air seven years ago. They just will, because the power of ben compels them.
Quality is subjective and differs from person to person. What's more, Toonami doesn't select shows based on quality. They select shows based on demand, popularity, buzz, etc. If people latch on to something like an Akame Ga Kill, it can't be helped. Toonami has to give the people what they want, no matter how shitty it is. But, Toonami can deliberately choose whether to air a new show or a rerun. They deliberately chose to air a rerun, in this case. Seven years ago or not, it's best to air something unaired, so it will be new to the most people. And we can't bring back every old show that would be "new to a decent amount of viewers", after all.
The point being made is that you care more about arbitrary premiere status than whether you even like a show. Not everyone cares about whether a show is new just because you do. So once again, no, it's not automatically best to air a premiere because being new to people isn't a guarantee that they'll want to watch it; there are multiple other factors at play, including the perception of quality. And even then, being a premiere doesn't even guarantee it'll be new to more people. "WE CAN'T BRING EVERYTHING BACK" is a garbage false equivalency that multiple people have disproven every single time you complain about Champloo, much like the other tired arguments you just made.
When did I ever say I don't care if I like a show or not? Shows like Attack on Titan, Akame Ga Kill, and Blue Exorcist, for the most part, were a waste for me. But, I can't do anything about it if that is what people request. Toonami is going to air what is popular. I can't change that. Neither can they. But, what they can change is whether a show is new or not. They aren't forced to get old shows. If anything, they're more guided towards getting new stuff for the most part, given ratings performance. Given that the bulk of the viewership is made up of casual fans, it's a pretty safe bet that a premiere will be new to more of them. But Gman, Trinity Blood needs to be introduced to new viewers! :D :D :D :D
And sometimes people request old shows, which those people then watch in numbers that are completely consistent with the performance of that timeslot. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that since Toonami's only duty is to air what people want to watch. The only point that differs is that ben doesn't like reruns and ben has chosen reruns as his hill to die on because ben thinks the block should cater to him personally. Oh, I see, you think repeating the same garbage false equivalency is going to make things go differently from the hundred other times people told that comparison was f*cking stupid. :D :D :D Though it's amusing that you don't seem to realize you proved my point; Trinity Blood is more likely to be newer to viewers than, say, Attack on Titan. But airing Trinity Blood would be a terrible idea since what's new to viewers is far from the only factor they should consider; there are many others. You just like to pretend there's only one.
And most of the time those old show requests are turned down. But not Champloo. I wonder why? Hmmm. I accept that Toonami isn't always going to get shows that I enjoy, even shows considered to be bad by critical consensus. After all, they are airing shows that people want to watch, shows that people requested. New vs old is a totally different dimension from good vs bad. A show's quality won't change no matter its age. By the same token, no amount of high show quality will make a show "new". So, I can't accept them getting a rerun the same way I can them getting a show I don't like. After all, there's always a chance I end up liking a show I was skeptical of at first. But seeing a rerun upon its airing won't suddenly make it new. Nothing is forcing them to get reruns. They got Champloo deliberately, selfishly. But Gman, how will we know people won't like it if they don't get a chance to watch it?
The reason they got Champloo doesn't matter if people are watching it, which they are; you are not the deciding factor and you never will be. Functionally, a show you've already seen on AS should be the same as a show you dislike; they're both things you don't want to watch. They're also the same in the fact that their value is determined by whether or not people want to watch them, which is the only measure that actually matters. A show's status as a premiere or a rerun does not necessarily have a bearing on that measurement, and Champloo's performance has demonstrated that it does not in this case. The only grounds you could possibly have to complain about this show is that you personally don't want to watch it, which, as you have been told hundreds of times, is not an issue. The issue is that you insist on trying to make this into some larger problem based on no evidence whatsoever other than your own displeasure with its presence on the block, which, once again, is not the measure for viewer approval or if Toonami is doing its job.
This argument literally boils down to everyone telling you that this is just your opinion and you have chosen to rage against that simple fact for...what is it now? Two months?
It's not the same, because not only is it something I don't want to watch, it is supplanting something I do want to watch! It's not like this is another rerun tacked on to the end of the block that doesn't affect anything. It's taking up valuable real estate. I can also get some value out of watching a new show I don't like. It's always good to expand one's horizons, plus I stay current with pop culture. There's also the completionist thing which is another aspect of my viewing habits that makes watching the block more fun for me. I can't just turn down free anime when it is so rare these days, either. So you'd really not be bothered if all I did was complain about Champloo being on endlessly? I doubt that. I've already made it clear that no matter what ratings it gets, I'm not going to care. I've already admitted that it's getting sufficient ratings. I'm still livid over its airing.
I've been raging against Champloo's presence on the block.
