I know you've already heard the news, [link]
but this isn't about sharing news.Rather, this is kind of a PSA, and I think any of my friends & watchers who actually like anime need to read this.
Even if you don't like the current Toonami line-up, I implore you- no- I BEG you to watch it. (and get your friends in on the action too!)
As srs bsns as this sounds, this is probably anime's last chance to "redeem" itself in the eye of network execs here in the states. (and by redeem, I mean prove that it can
pull in good ratings, and it CAN
be profitable, and anime isn't a complete waste of air time and money
in the eyes of business folk)
Heck, partly why adult swim treats anime fans as badly as they do is because we can be so dang fickle sometimes @__@
Adult Swim: *takes Inuyasha off the air*
fans: What're you doing?! PUT IT BACK ON!! RAAAAAGE!!!
adult swim: *puts it back on the air*
fans: *don't bother watching it
^rinse and repeat :I
I'm not saying everything is 100% our fault, (there's oodles of factors contributing to the poor overall sucess of anime here in the states) but we need to make good on our word. We hounded adult swim to bring back toonami after the whole April Fools thing, and they actually listened
to us. Lets not disappoint them, okay?
Besides: more views = more ratings = more money = better line-up = more fans!
Don't let this attempt at redemption be a miserable failure. We can do this guys!! ; u ;
