So there's is this anime series that I've been recently been watching on this TV network called "Chiller." Like the Syfy channel, that channel too has it's own Ani-Mondays. 
 
I've watched six episode and I'm gonna another two later today. What I seen so far is that the show is about a guy and his sister whose parents were killed when they were younger at an apartment complex. Years later they grow up and become detectives, the older brother becomes the detective so he can investigate the murder of his parents. Eventually he encounters these weird demons, and these demon hunters. Supposedly the demons are after the survivors of the apartment complex. 
 
What I can also say about the show is that it's violence and filled with profanity (Though the show censors the profanity is by silencing it).  It's okay, and I'm hoping the later episodes hold my interest for the rest of this series.

Fighting game characters defiantly get some inspiration from either real life people, or from other media such as anime. One anime series I'm about to point out is Gundam Wing.

Two characters from that series are the inspirations of two characters from the Street Fighter series.

Goodbye, Cartoon Network.
Goodbye, Cartoon Network.
So Cartoon Network announced a couple of live action shows that are going to be airing on Cartoon Network during non Adult Swim hours.  Those live action shows were going to be airing on a certain day and time only. But now those shows are invaded the hours where the animated stuff was suppose to be airing. I look at the TV schedule  for today and I'll I'm seeing is the lame live action shows filling in the time slots.

The live action shows are not even that interesting to begin with, you got one show calling Survive This - it's like the CBS show Survivor, but for kids.  Another show call Slamball - it's basketball with trampolines, actually, the show originally aired on Spike TV years ago but then was cancel. Another show (I forgot the name) is about where a bunch of kids go into a haunted house in search for ghost, (Sound familiar?). Yeah, a show with that concept has already been done before, multiple times. Not only those shows are not interesting, but there completely unoriginal.

You brought nothing but good memories.
You brought nothing but good memories.
G4 went through a similar effect years ago, when G4 starting airing shows that had nothing to do with what it use to represent, then all of a sudden, you're seeing a bunch of shows that has nothing to do with video games or tech. G4 is kind of unrecognizable from what it was back in it's glory days.

Just give more time, soon Cartoon Network will focus on airing a lot more live action contain. And like G4, it will be unrecognizable from what it was.

I remember those days like if was yesterday, the glory days of Cartoon Network's Toonami.It began back in the summer of 2000,I was about twelve-years-old and the Dreamcast was at its prime; and I was enjoying the system & its software. But then I discovered a action block on Cartoon Network known as "Toonami". The first show that I got into that Toonami aired was Dragon Ball Z but it didn't stop there, they were other great anime shows that Toonami aired such as Outlaw Star,Gundam Wing,all three of the Tenchi Muyo series,Dragon Ball,etc.And after that, I became interested in anime.But it wasn't just the great anime shows that Toonami aired, Toonami also had a great presentation.

The presentation of Toonami & its host was somehting special.All of the promos that Toonami aired for all of their shows and the block its self were well done; all of the editing of the footages for the promos were very well constructed, but my favorite promo has to be is "Broken Promises [Dreams]". The music for the promos were also great as well, Joe Boyd Vigil did an great job as music composer for Toonami. Tom 2.0 was an awsome host, cool personality & cool design; he gave off a good vibe.Judging by Toonami's presentation I knew the people behind Toonami were also fans of all the shows they've aired.
  

Stay Gold.
Stay Gold.
But after the glory days have ended, things were starting go down-hill for Toonami.All of the anime shows that Toonami aired were no longer around and the focus for Toonami was shifting from anime to American shows but Dragon Ball GT finally made its debut, but turn out to be disappointing.And then things got worse for Toonami, Cartoon Network annouced that Toonami was going to aired on Saturdays because the shows that Toonami was airing was too "volient" for prime time. I didn't think the shows or the shows that Toonami aired in the past was too volient;or even Trigun; an show that was suppose to air on Toonami but aired on Adult Swim because of heavy gun use [Does Cartoon Network even remember Outlaw  Star?]. But finally, Toonami came to a close; on September 20, 2008, Toonami aired its final broadcast.Cartoon Network obviously wanted to put more focus on Adult Swim.

Fuck Tim & Eric.

I will admit, the first couple of years of Adult Swim was okay;Adult Swim had aired some great anime shows but the people behind Adult Swim wanted to put more focus on their dumbass originals and don't really want nothing to do with anime anymore; by now only airing the anime shows on Saturdays now. Hell Adult Swim barely even promotes their anime shows but they have no problems promoting their crappy originals--like Tim & Eric--so what the fuck?


Possible revival of the original?
Cartoon Network has this other channel known as Boomarang.Its a show that airs most of the shows that Cartoon Network aired like some of the Batman series, Powerpuff Girls, and many others. Then it got me thinking, could Cartoon Network air the original Toonami on Boomarang? Some of those shows that Boomarang is airing are licenses; so Boomarang could bring back Dragon Ball Z and some other anime shows that Cartoon Network maybe still have the rights to.So could the classic Toonami return?
