Anime on adult swim has terrible brand image. It's all about repackaging to make it look better.
This is exactly my point. There's no real difference. All it is repackaging it with a robot. How does that make it better? The shows would be the same with or without the robot or name change.
Nostalgia is the key difference and the selling point, and it'll work for itself for a few weeks at least. Will it last? Maybe, but that'll depend on how much money this thing rolls in so that they can license new shows to rope in interest. I think [as] would pull in more ratings if they reverted back to the original bumps and promos, because as the audience grows older, the more the nostalgia factor increases.

its not something that you can just get! lol you obviously didnt grow up watching toonami that is why you dont get it. you saw tom on april fools and didnt get the appeal because that was your first time ever watching him! you didnt have that feeling that you just met your long lost friend. You will probably never understand because you werent there with us late at night watching tom and all the shows that we had never imagined existed here in the us. Of course now you can just watch it all on the internet, but back then when we first experienced anime on toonami block as a kid it was groundbreaking! at least for me. lol Nostalgia can do a lot of things, and the people saying it is going to fail.. why would it fail? its just a rebranding. ahahaha ridiculous. cant wait for deadman wonderland tho. and tom. i say just sit back and enjoy the anime. There being a robot there is just a plus? i mean seriously who doesnt like robots with personalitys right? same voice actor and everything. ^^

Well lets get back on topic and see if we get more trolls who hate toonami back in here, besides there is a reason I advertised this post link on my sig, because we don't need to see more trolls bother the members who want to have a good weekend.
They're not trolls. Your brain cannot realize this?

Using * to illustrate an action is about as dumb as using "fag" as a suffix.

Look, it's just Jeff's relentless trolling. I get his brain isn't capable of understanding the nuances of comedy, but still.

When I was channel surfing on April Fool's Day and saw Yu Yu Hakusho playing, I pretty much flipped my ####. I was so excited to see the anime I grew up on being aired again.
But, to be honest, since the relaunch of Toonami on Memorial Day weekend, I really haven't watched anymore of Toonami.
It just doesn't feel the same to me anymore, even with Tom.
