Moribito Series News

Moribito Series is a franchise comprised of 1 anime series

So as you heard reported here on Anime Vice Code Geass R2's Adult Swim run is on hiatus.

Initially I was pretty furious, granted that I am two episodes behind and catching up on my DVR. I was wondering, WTF are they doing? Seriously, as bad as the second season that people say it is, I would like to see it through to the end.

I have all of season 1 on DVD, and even now season 1 is available for free on YouTube.

This isn't the first time that Adult Swim has pulled an odd schedule change, not too long ago Bleach was pretty early at 11:00 or 11:30 (don't remember exactly which). Code Geass was pretty early too, but then they changed THAT to 5am. Moribito is gone now also which I was watching, but that series looks to be on hiatus as far as it is in the U.S. (I haven't seen any DVDs for any episodes past what was aired on Adult Swim).

So, on the bright side this is looking to be like Bandai's issue currently in getting the dub out fast enough and/or getting the DVD version from Japan. I don't know the exact situation, this is merely speculation!

In the end we win some and lose some here. We gain an extra episode of Bleach (which is great as we're exiting the Bount arc, which wasn't bad but is when it comes down to it...filler), we get a recap of CG R2 so far (which I don't mind, I think I missed an episode or missed some of the content of some of the episodes). We lose Shin Chan (although I have a backlog of episodes on my DVR). So...it's an interesting play by Adult Swim, Bleach gets a better time slot and two episodes back-to-back (probably because a few weeks ago it hit #2 in ratings for their Saturday night).

Yes, I didn't mention Naruto, but to be honest the episodes they were are on are pure garbage (the last 70 episodes or so were nearly unbearable IMO) and I have never been a huge fan of the English dub (which is a lot coming from me, trust me!). And also the episodes are free online on a multitude of sites like Crunchyroll and Hulu in 480p which is much better then the standard defention of Cartoon Network.

So what do you think? Who do you think is at fault for the hiatus of Code Geass? Do you even watch Adult Swim's anime block?
