So apparently, enough people tweeted and wrote in, asking every day for Adult Swim to bring back Toonami after its small run on April 1, 2012. Steve Blum's Twitter was ablaze every day, demanding people tweet to bring back Toonami. Finally, we got this announcement today http://ow.ly/i/D8Rj
Yes, you can groan at the pun if you want. However, it serves the purpose of this blog entry as opposed to stating dryly "Legend of Korra project". And for those of you with the keen eye that wondered if I ever finished Eden of the East month, the answer is kinda. I got a ton done with characters, movies, concepts, etc. The only problem were the episodes as I didn't have time to re-watch the series and take caps like I usually do when I dedicate myself to doing new projects. But that's in the past and here is the now.
The now being that I have a dedicated reason to watch Nickelodeon once more as The Legend of Korra is now airing every Saturday. I've been busy since it premiered two weeks ago by creating new pages, capping images, and editing pages. I like to think the majority of the grunt work (mainly making new pages) is done with and everything else will come naturally. I was planning on spending the next few weeks working on Eureka Seven: Ao but it may have to wait since I'm more interested in Korra than Eureka Seven (shocking, I know).
If you wanna give a hand, I won't look a gift horse in the mouth. Do what you want to do and have fun with it. I will look around and if I see things that need tweaking, I'll take care of it.
For those of you that saw or heard, Toonami came back for one night on April 1,2012 during Adult Swim where old classic anime was run as well as Steve Blum doing a review of Mass Effect 3. Needless to say, those of us that were around in the 90s and early part of the 21st century remember staying up late to see it and enjoy the violent titles. It started with Space Ghost hosting it then to the robot Tom then we got it every weekday before it moved back to Saturday and it was so amazing before they canceled it. Now, there is a chance for it to come back.
Yesterday, Adult Swim posted on Twitter "Want if back? Let us know. #BringBackToonami." Twitter has been abuzz for the last few hours with numerous tweets about how it would make us happy and to bring back classic anime like Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, etc. Even the voice of Tom Steve Blum himself seems in support of this based on his posts on his own Twitter account. If you want Toonami to come back, it may be wise to make your voice heard. Sure, this mght be nothing but it could be something amazing if enough voices are heard and people pay attention. Give it a try. Don't be shy.

I've been wanting to do a month for one of the more interesting animes I've seen in a while but going through college and an extensive internship last year, I didn't have much time to sit down and watch Eden of the East (despite being shorter than most animes). Now that I've graduated and have a bit of free time on my hands, I want to take the short month of February and apply it to the short series. I was able to marathon the series on Thursday and Friday and watch the first film and noticed an absence of key characters and concepts in regards to the anime. Ergo, I have taken it upon myself to fill in the gaps and complete everything there needs to be with the franchise.
I've gotten quite a bit done over the past few days. There is a hefty amount of work to be done but I know the work is feasible, obtainable, and realistic.
Noblesse Oblige. I continue to serving this site as a savior.
