On May 27, 2012, Toonami has return to Cartoon Network after being off the air for about four years. But instead of being an afternoon block like it was in the past, it’s part of the Adult Swim. Like a lot of people, I was excited when I heard the news of its return. However, I was disappointed after watching it. Out of the six shows that were aired on the new Toonami, four of them had been already airing (or had been at one point) on Adult Swim while only two were new. Also, all of them are action anime shows. The shows themselves weren’t that bad, but I was hoping for shows that haven’t been aired yet or Toonami had a verity of shows with romance, science fiction, etc.
I won’t mind seeing old anime shows, like Fruits Basket and Ramma ½ , being aired on Toonami as well as the latest shows like Wallflower, Ouran High School Host Club, Spiral: The Bonds of Reasoning, and Kino’s Journey.
All I’m saying is that there are a lot of anime shows that people may have not heard or seen before. And since there’s an anime block on Adult Swim, they should introduce different kinds of anime.
