A Toon Network that went from its Golden years to its Crappy years.more...
How I miss The Cartoon Network City Era (You know, the era where cartoons interact with each other in a city and they have great music and Nikki and The Now/Next with character heads)
Great shows like Ed, Edd n Eddy, Powerpuff Girls, Megas XLR, The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, Time Squad, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Duck Dodgers, Dexter’s Laboratory, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Teen Titans, Johnny Bravo, Codename: Kids Next Door, Camp Lazlo, Xiaolin Showdown, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Samurai Jack, My Gym Partner’s a Monkey, Cow and Chicken, Skunk Fu and Mucha Lucha have no schedule anymore because of the NEW Cartoon Network. If it wasn't for these shows, Cartoon Network wouldn't be so awesome!
They took off Toonami few years later...
We have no idea why it got cancelled but I got 4 guesses:
They hate anime for being so much more popular than cartoons, Censorship, Toonami is too popular to Cartoon Network or Cartoon Network thinks anime shouldn’t be on a cartoon station
Because of this anti-anime act, Naruto got taken off like 3 weeks after.
The shows they aired were
Tenchi in Tokyo
Dragon Ball Z
Dragon Ball GT
Cartoon Network's late night adult channel where adult anime and adult cartoons are featured for adults.
My favorite shows on there are Shin Chan
, Fooly Cooly
, Super Milk Chan
, Full Metal Alchemist
and Yu Yu Hakusho
(before it became beautiful Toonami material).
A long time ago, Monday through Thursday nights would have both adult anime and adult cartoons on Adult Swim. It was pretty much the same when they got Friday nights. Saturday nights after Toonami was anime's time to shine while adult cartoons show on Sunday nights.
But now on Monday throught Friday nights with Adult Swim, anime doesn't show with cartoons anymore. Anime on Adult Swim still shows on Saturday but we could use more anime on there because adult cartoons have weekday and Sunday nights and that's not really fair.
(Probably another New Cartoon Network plot against anime)
Still, Adult Swim is looking better than the new Cartoon Network.
If anyone believes this is a good Adult Swim definition and that we shuld have more anime on it, rate up. :)
Adult Swim is best known for adult animation.
An extremely funny cartoon reality series that involves a large group of 16-year-olds competing for lots of money.
It first started out as Total Drama Island where 22 teens were competing at Camp Wawanakwa, doing crazy, dangerous and sometimes gross Challenges to win.
The teens were Courtney, Tyler, Duncan, Lindsay, Heather, Harold, Owen, Trent, Ezekiel, Geoff, DJ, LeShawna, Gwen, Brigdette, Beth, Cody, Eva, Izzy, Katie, Sadie, Justin and Noah.
Total Drama Action is the sequel where the teens compete in an abandoned movie lot doing Challenges related to movie genres known to man.
The teens were Lindsay, Owen, Gwen, Trent, Duncan, Harold, LeShawna, Geoff, Heather, DJ, Bridgette, Beth, Justin, Izzy and Courtney.
This is followed by Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special which led to Total Drama World Tour. Sierra and Alejandro are the newcomers.
The show is hosted by Chris McLean and he is always accompanied by Chef Hatchet.
I'm a little bugged by the fact that some characters are kicked off before the new season starts.
But the one thing that bugs me the most is the censorship this series gets here in America. And it's because of Cartoon Network
and the FCC
. They mess with the dialouge, making the characters say things a five-year old would say and half or most of the edits don't make any sinc...
The weirdest but funniest anime show ever to appear on Toonami. The whole show is just so random, its cute and awesome. It does parodies of other anime shows.
It's about Bobobo, Don-Patch, Beauty, Jelly Jiggler, Gasser, Softon, Dengaku Man and a lot of other good characters fighting evil and Hair Hunters and possibly gaining more allies. There's a lot of fourth wall breaking (which every anime show should have) and a lot of cross-dressing.
Bobobo uses his "Fist of the Nose Hair" to attack the bad guys, his friends attack with their own powers and Beauty always gets that funny "What in the World expression?" expression on her face from the insanity of this show (A lot of the characters do that, too).
Too bad it only had 76 episodes. I was hoping it would be ongoing like Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach. It needs more love. Ever since it's series finale, Toonami stopped showing it. :(
I enjoyed this anime. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo Forever!
Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is really weird but really awesome.
A wall that is always being broken so reality meets fantasy. Like in Anime and Cartoons.
Anime like Naruto, Pokémon, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo and Duel Masters break the fourth wall.
Cartoons Ed, Edd n Eddy, Powerpuff Girls, Brandy and Mr. Whiskers and Yin Yang Yo break the fourth wall.
They bring up the word "episode" sometimes, too.
They look at YOU directly and they mention their own show!
Every Anime and Cartoon has a fourth wall... It's just that the directors and producers don't have them break it. It's not in their script.
Two words that mean same gender love in anime and manga. It can give people a nosebleed
Yaoi is Boy+Boy Love and Yuri is Girl+Girl Love.
Sometimes it involves hentai.
To avoid hentai, go for Shonen-Ai
which is for Yaoi couples and Shoujo-Ai
which is for Yuri couples.
Example with Naruto:
Yaoi: Naruto and
Yuri: Sakura and Ino
Yaoi is for girls and Yuri is for boys. :)
NaruSasu is my favorite Yaoi! :)
SakuIno is a beautiful Yuri! :)
Yaoi and Yuri is awesome!
What does everyone else think of anime-style cartoons?
I think it's pretty cool.
