GXP managed to spring up some last week, though I didn't watch it, kind of glad I didn't since I saw talk of peni on foreheads...

Yeah, there were these security drones that gave marks to kids out past curfew. It was pixel censored on TV. Didn't know it was that, though. It's ironic that it did decent right before it was scheduled to get demoted.

 

Another interesting bit from those ratings is that Naruto beat bleach. People were surprised when it didn't happen 2 weeks ago considering Bleach started a hiatus, but it beat Bleach out last week.

Sadly Black Dynamite is back on the air on Saturdays, which seemed to lose quite a bit of viewers from the show before it, which doesn't bode well for Toonami.

They've posted a couple more of the comic pages they had planned. They also seem to have another game review in store for tomorrow as well as reairing the "to hell with fear" video.

What is so bad about teenagers getting shot with some bullets containing paint?

I don't understand how they could answer this question like that. Do they seriously think that the decline in Samurai 7's viewership was due to the show and not a result of them moving it 3 times? It was improving its ability to retain Bleach viewers, but they bumped it and it's never recovered since. I don't see how they can put that on the show itself.

They may know something we don't, but generally we as viewers would think the constant shuffling would be a factor. It probably played some role in it, depending on how drastic the shifts were. In the past on ASA there were shows that were at the start of the block and then shoved to the tail end of it, Moribito and Code Geass being example sI believe.

Networks are fickle about ratings so much more nowadays. Now it doesnt matter if people like the show. If the ratings go bad then they start changing the line up

I'm surprised they're showing Samurai 7. That's a pretty old anime; it came out more than half a decade ago.

2004 really isn't that old, to me at least.

It's pretty old, mate, when you compare to how many anime are released each year.

GXP is from 2002. It's the oldest anime I've seen them pick up(Bebop and Ghost excluded).

I never really liked Tenchi Muyo. Even when I was younger, I tried to get into it, but I never understood it much.

That's why I wouldn't consider it that old, more so if you want to look at how many titles get picked up and dubed each year. How many are released in Japan don't really matter, it's the American side that really matters in this, imho. Even then Samurai 7 isn't old enough to show in it's animation, so it ages well enough.

Well, I still think it's pretty old. But yeah, Samurai 7 has aged pretty well. I feel bad for some of my favorite characters in there though...

The CGI in the beginning is pretty terrible, though. They cut a lot of that out, though.
