G4 like the Marvel stuff?!? Don't make me laugh! Although seriously it will probably be pretty good...

(Do you know when it's coming?)

Elfen Lied is WAAAAAY too bloody. From what I've seen, Durarara!! is like a slightly tamer Baccano! Should be big with the Bebop and Ghost In The Shell crowd.
Time to shuffle the deck once again! This Saturday night on Toonami, Catch brand-spankin' new episodes of Attack on Titan and Bleach as Eren's bizarre abilities and Ichigo's confrontation with Xcution unfold further at 11:30 and Midnight respectively! How do you follow that? No better way but a really weird WORLD PREMIERE Space Dandy episode at 12:30! Naruto gets foxy (and NOT sexy) on Naruto: Shippuden at 1, we kick off the rumble in Enies Lobby on One Piece at 1:30, then Yukio goes full-demon on Blue Exorcist at 2 AM and the Bat moves up to 2:30 with US TV Premiere episodes before Black Lagoon starts its final arc of the "Second Barrage" at 3 AM! Following that, more from the Forest of Death in Naruto at 3:30 and Gluttony goes berserk--or should I say "ravenous?"--on Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 4 before the return of Bebop at 4:30! Finally, an hour of CN classics close out the night: Star Wars: The Clone Wars with more lightsaber-slingin' is at 5, and Samurai Jack at 5:30.

And get ready for Gurren Lagann, drilling its way to TOONAMI at 2 AM August 16th!

It's like a kid show compared to Baccano.

Well that may be, but it's less like a kid's show than Bleach or Kekkaishi, right? I think it even qualifies as seinen rather than shonen.

I'm not sure what Baccano! qualifies as, but if you've never seen it, it's back on Hulu right now. Warning: don't get used to the voices of any of the characters in this if they happen to show up in Durarara!!; they WILL change!

Sometimes it seems even darker than Baccano.

 

 

Spoiler

I don't know...people becoming immortal and only being able to die by eating each other through their own left hands is pretty dark. But a headless biker chick seems about on a par wtih that.

 

 

Still, I'm sure you agree that it feels less like a kid's show than Bleach or Kekkaishi. Maybe more akin to FMA:B than Bebop or GITS, as far as the current [as] lineup is concerned.

Headless biker chick has a cool scythe.

In the first episode she uses the scythe to attack some dude.

However, once the scythe goes through the dude, there is no blood, there is no laceration, and we even see him later in the series as if nothing ever happened at all.

=\

There's only maybe 3 scenes where I recall there being any blood at all, one of which being a flashback.

Makes sense.

 

Dullahans tend to say the name of the person who is about to die then they perish or use whips made from human bones. Though they tend to use the whips to blind people instead of killing them.

 

I have never heard of them using shadows to harm people.

G4 marvel stuff is rather lame.

 

Kim Manning has said herself that they cannot get elfen lied (though she wanted it).

 

Durarara is definitely low on the blood. but its HUGE on language and suggestive content lol. and despite there being little blood, its def [as] material lol.

No-name girl is kidnapped presumably to be forced into an AV/prostitution. That's in the first and second episodes. Don't think she is ever heard from again.

That's the only 'suggestive content' I can recall in DRRR.

There's only 2 !s in Durarara!!. Not 7 !s and a ?.

Regardless of our individual personal opinions on the Black Dynamite TV series, we at the ASMB believe it is for the best that it is removed from the Saturday lineup as soon as possible. Because dammit, Space Dandymite deserves better than 800,000 viewers per week.

We're forgetting creepy lecherous teacher guy and his crazy ass stalker?

 

Also,

Spoiler
the idea that they took some murdered girl and attached someone else's head to her body, (even though it turns out to be a fake-out) is pretty gruesome. Especially when you remember that they supposedly do it to appease an ass-face teen and his sister's creepy incestuous love for him.

:/

 

And the gang violence is still pretty scary and there's the Slasher scenes and Blue Square's retaliation against the Yellow Scarves.

Spoiler
They force Kida to listen while they break his girlfriend's legs.

 

That's pretty bad as well.

The fake out was really stupid.

That was the last straw for me.

I have to agree about that. It was really annoying. But if Celty had found her head that quickly that wouldn't have been very good either I don't think.

The Celty's head story in general was stupid. I don't give a fuuuuuudge about her bull**tut-tut** love life, those aren't the answers I wanted, nor did I want them within 4 episodes.

 

She started as the focal mystery, should have stayed that way. Information release in the show was awful.
