As a podcaster, it should come as no surprise that I’m a fan of on-demand media. Services like Hulu and Netflix have been putting pressure on linear television for years now, and its only a matter of time before they take over. Anime fans especially are huge consumers of on-demand content, so when Cartoon Network relaunched Toonami on Adult Swim, I was a little skeptical.
With the announcement of Gurren Lagann joining the block in August, it got me thinking about how far Toonami has come in such a short time. Space Dandy. Attack on Titan. Black Lagoon. Cowboy Bebop. They have so many good shows now that it almost makes me want to get cable again. Almost.
My question for you, Internet, is this…
What would be your dream Toonami lineup? If you have 6.5 hours to fill every weekend with anime and anime cartoons, how would you do it? Would it be all anime? All action cartoons? Shorter? Longer?
