I too have seen most of the anime that appeared in the past... up until now, but for me, Toonami is about showcasing anime,
for the benefit of ALL other animes.
I agree its not the most ideal lineup but its much better than it was. I was really disappointed when they first brought Toonami back because it felt like they didn't really change much. It was the same block for the same amount of time just with the Toonami name slapped on but the fact that they're extending it gives me hope. I agree with Legendary_Masaki though, just the fact that they are showing more anime will benefit the industry and get more fans interested. I mean I've seen a lot of them too but just because fans that have been around longer have seen them doesn't mean everyone has seen them. I mean it would make me really happy if some new anime fan could enjoy something like Cowboy Bebop for the first time just as much as I did when I was younger. I think the important thing is that the return of Toonami is good for the industry and good for anime fans. Besides if they start out with tried and true classics and get a good response then hopefully they'll start showing new stuff. Plus I think a lot of fans are happy to see old favorites even if they do own them already. cat_wink I've actually heard more people say "bring back such and such" than I have people who want new stuff. I dunno, there's just something special about seeing those old favorites on Toonami again. emotion_kirakira I say bravo Cartoon Network!! cat_biggrin
