Oh undoubtedly it got love from Toonami
They even advertised the Water 7 arc (Something many of the One Piece 'fans' said they were waiting for) and yet even with that those same fans didn't come back to it.
It really not 4Kids fault. As much as some want to blame that was a long time ago and it wasn't the version being aired. The version aired just wasn't getting loved by viewes. A lot of those same 'fans' just never came back.
I still enjoyed myself while it lasted. I will forever miss it on Adult Swim.
I didn't say it wasn't relevant . It know it is to some degree. If you want to talk on it be my guess. I just feel that is a much larger argument to the state of tv in general that we all know is true. We all know it won't be long till Netflix and Amazon along with other services completely take over. But it hasn't yet. There are still people out there who do enjoy there current tv package and the commercials that go along with it.
ha. I mean, if there was a general television thread, id do it there instead. but theres not. and I'm lazy. and lanipator incepted the idea in my head that toonami is irrelivent in the age of streaming.
hey man I'm just trying to save people money is all. I mean good god. toonami is so nostalgic to me. it was around before I could even tie my shoes and extended into my teenage hood with the likes of Saturday night toonami with Naruto, which inevitably led to me finding om in the first place, learning that onepiece shat on Naruto like it wasn't even funny, and inevitably wasting years of my life discussing manga like some kind of hardcore nerd. BUT. that being said, as nostalgic as it is, and perhaps I should have said this earlier, its growing more and more apparent to me day by day that the sad truth of the matter is that toonami is pretty much irrelivent in todays day and age. idk what exactly brings this up now, maybe its just because I haven't actually watched cartoon network in years because YARG I BE A PIRATE and all that shit, but slowly but surely ive grown to be completely numb to the like of toonami, cartoon network, and everything in between, maguzi included.
I mean yeah, its cool that they brought it back and now a new generation of little kids have been exposed to anime like us nineties/2000s kids and that the age of videogames being the mainstream is coming to an end in favor of all different forms of visual media, but at the end of the day, the ral question is, how log will toonami honestly still be around? 5 years? 10? 20? is cable dying and along with it our entire way of life as youngins? things just be changing so much now adays I cant even keep things straight.
I mean hell, now youtube is attempting to become our mainstream source of cable. how long do they honestly expect that to last, ESPECIALLY given that youtube seems to b the new medium through which creators of visual media can put they're content out there without the need of huge corporations hounding, editing, an d censoring they're content?
how long until shows like, say my hero academia catch wise and realize that the more lucritiv opportunity is to put they're shows up on youtube and cut out the middle man because, quite frankly, mainstream media would probably do better uploading straight too youtube?
..... yeah that was a bit ranty now that I read it back. lol. sorry. I just think way to deeply about this stuff.... but imo, its interesting conversation, and expands on what would normally be talked about in this thread.
