You said if it has action it fits, Tom and Jerry has action. So what if it's comedy, so is most of Space dandy and it's on the block. So what is the problem other then your criteria being kind of ridiculous? As I said Madoka is more of a gray area considering the whole magical girl genre. Yes they played Sailor Moon back in the day, and that is what you need to remember. That was back in the day. If Madoka was such a viable option it probably would have been picked up by now given all the hype around it.
One Piece seems to have been doing fine for the most part. So the idea that it was doing so badly that it needed a promo is moot at this point. And considering they've stated that if a show does poorly then they will adjust the schedule and move shows when needed. If they have to make special exceptions for One Piece then people are going to expect them to do the same for other shows. Heck going by your stance they shouldn't have moved GXP since it wasn't going to be around that long compared to other shows.
It not a ridiculous point it is true. Toonami is a action block so anything with some action in it can be argued for, but again the idea that something "fits" is opinionated. It kinda goes to what you consider as "Toonami action".
Tom and Jerry little comedic fight that we can argue is more of a tussle than a fight. Where as Space Dandy
still has fist on fist, explosions,a dn things like that.
As for One Piece then it also should be noted that a lot of people having been whining about it doing poorly and that it needed a promo. This was asked by multiple fans, so you can also argue that there just making a point.
Either way though it is important to keep a show that is that big and has gotten pushed back now (as it has) have some more steam behind it especially if your gonna keep it for a while. If they didn't giev it a promo now they would have in the future.
I really find it dumb that the argument of a arc promo is that big of a deal when Adult Swim has been doing Bleach arc promos for yeeeeeaaaarrrss, because it was a long running anime that adult swim knew they would have for while, so who cares if Toonami does it with One Piece
LOL and it not like Toonami haven't promoted Bleach well
Just need Naruto Shippuden to get more and it probably will when we hit those HD episodes
