Like Hellsing Ultimate, I think it'd be best to hold off on long run time series till they have more time they can work with

 

More time?

As in them having longer hours in program?

 

Hmm I wouldn't mind if they started at 10 PM :D


Show me the way to go home - I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago - And it’s gone right to my head
Wherever I may roam - On land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

Not really just that, as that isn't likely to happen any time soon (unless Fox takes back their shows which I would love) but multiple times of the week or something like that.

"Bull shit": often the first term used when a person expresses their dissatisfaction with something and they don't like the explaination.

I was so happy when I heard Toonami was back.

 

When I was young some of the anime's plots were over my head, but since they're not bringing them all back I won't get to make sense of all of them with my capable, mature, young adult brain.

Would love it too if they got rid of the Fox shows, can't stand watching them really.

But being on more than one day would be nice as well, still remember the old days when it was on basically 6-7 days a week  ^_^

Also, why do I not remember watching that episode of Thundercats :S

I remember it... Only because of the stab in the heart/back that comes next week or the week after...

 

That and the whole Read or Die imagery

I think that comes in two weeks

 

I really hope Toonami manages to get new episodes for this series, I loved it sooo much

You're one of very few because the series has been put on hiatus. 

 

What's wrong with children these days?

Quite a few million people enjoyed thundercats when it was on the air originally. That's what makes this hiatus so questionable, seeing how no reason for it has ever been given, that I've seen. The only thing that I've seen speculated, that makes sense, is Thundercats didn't do well in the toy section. This is something that happened with another series, Sym Bionic Titan, and it was cancelled as well.

 

Ratings wise though it makes no sense, it would be like them suddenly cancelling Young Justice.

For a good minute I actually thought they did. That pissed me all the way off.

 

And if toys matter so much, how are Gumball and The Regular Show still on? I don't any of those toys in store isles.

I heard that Thundercats wasn't getting the right kind of viewers, so its millions of viewers were ignored by CN.

Yeah, everyone was worried about YJ being cancelled after they put it on sudden hiatius right after it just came off one.

 

With those shows likely being primarily CN shows, they probably get more money from DVD sales and what not then they would with shows like YJ and Thundercats that are done by outside studioes, that and it doesn't seem like Gumball and Regular show are all that exspensive in terms of animation and VA.

 

I heard that Thundercats wasn't getting the right kind of viewers, so its millions of viewers were ignored by CN.

 

I forgot about that, but yeah, Thundercats might have attracted an OIder demographic then what they wanted, but I honestly don't know what they expected with it being Thundercats. Just putting it on Saturday mornings doesn't mean kids will flock to it.
