True & Honest Fan
The Birdgirl Pilot is straight up unwatchable. And who was the genius that decided it should be a half hour cartoon when the original Harvey Birdman was only 12 minutes long?
How did HBO Max gain rights of several adult cartoons? People watch HBO for original programming and movies.
Adult Swim seems pretty dead to me, if they're going full Woke/muh feminism then it's dead.
Sad it didn't even make it to 20 years.
But 20 years is a long time and it can be argued that it had a good run for as long as probably could have realistically done, but between Adult Swim and Cartoon Network evidently becoming for preschoolers this seems to mark the end of the whole CN/AS lineage over the last 25+ which is definitely a real end of an era and it's sad to think it's ending, but nothing lasts forever and 25+ years is a run to be proud of.
Toonami is the one X factor I was thinking of but what wasn't sure what to say at first.I mean, at this point, I'm only tuning into Adult Swim for Toonami, the annual April Fools' prank, and to see what happens once they lose Family Guy and Bob's Burgers. That could very much be one of those make or break moments for the block. Especially if the woke Birdgirl show flops badly enough.
Aside from the ultra-cringe BLM promo they did in 2020, Toonami as a whole seems unscathed and isolated from the rest of Adult Swim.

For one thing though to be frank how many people in the US actually still consume anime through broadcast television? Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Toonami the last thing on US TV to air anime in live broadcasts? (unless Disney XD still does, but I can't think of anything, I'm not even sure if Disney XD is even still a thing, but maybe some other network airs something), seems like most people have switched to streaming, blu ray or yo ho ho ho (he took a bite of Gum Gum) to spite Woke US publishers like Funimation.
I am aware Toonami was supposed to be funding original shows like Uzumaki, but whatever the hell happened to it? Seems like it's vaporware.
Don't get me wrong, I hope Toonami can soldier on, but it does seem like a pretty archaic concept now, I hope at the very least if it ends for good it ends with something special like a third season of Big O (which oh shit, I'm just now realizing the first season of premiered exactly 20 years ago on Toonami), that'd be a perfect way to close the circle.
But on a personal note, I have been watching HBO Max and while I hate to sound like such a normie the convenience is pretty amazing (people should still sail the high seas if anything is removed or censored due to Wokeness though, don't get me wrong), the future ain't looking bright for broadcast TV but I have noticed that while Adult Swim, Crunchy Roll and even Ghibli is on there, Toonami shows don't seem to be.
That was my point, but I think Toonami could live on as a "brand" to curate a certain type of anime even if it's literally just a menu option on a Streaming service as so many things are on HBO Max.Honestly, I think a lot of the Toonami shows are kept off HBO Max and Crunchy Roll precisely to keep the block alive.
Makes sense but how long has it been since we've heard anything about it? I worry it might have been canceled.I don't think the Uzumaki miniseries is vaporware quite yet, since it got delayed due to COVID-19 and my guess was that they originally meant to air it as an October event since Halloween 2020 was on a Saturday but the initial lockdowns mucked up the production on both sides of the Pacific.
The loss of FG + the loss of ratings in general as it goes full Woke feminist might kill it off entirely, as sad as that would be.Mainly I'm tuning in because I want to see Uzumaki and see how AS handles losing Family Guy later this year in the fall.
They will be fine. Family guy is now some gay ass sjw shit. The venture bro’s need one last good season.Honestly, I think a lot of the Toonami shows are kept off HBO Max and Crunchy Roll precisely to keep the block alive.

Shake, Rusty, Brock, Phantom Limb, and the boys in the band will finally pay for their crimes against wahmens and minorities. Especially Skwisgaar and his male gaze at GMILFs
I’ll fucking take it.
We got ATHF, Venture Bros, and Metalocalypse all coming back in the form of movies.
What do you even do with another Aqua Teen movie at this point?
The innocent shall suffer, big time! All joking aside Metalocalypse will probably be the planned followup to The Doomstar Requiem. No idea about Venture or Aqua Teen.
@Y2K Baby Yo! The Aqua Teens!
