I missed Tom 3.0. Despite he was a bit short, he was sleeker and had a medium build.

One Piece is an interesting launch. I'm not sure how it will do. Naruto is probably around the Forest of Death and about to start delivering awesomely animated episodes on a regular basis of one like every 6-13 episodes. Soul Eater is just as funny as OP but delivers awesome fights every episode. I'm not sure where Bleach is at, but if they're near the Muramasa arc then it's about to start looking really good damn near every episode.

OP is coming in against even stiffer shonen competition and it's starting a place that looks like utter crap for 300 episodes while many other shows on Toonami are hitting their peaks or are in a good spot. That's the same thing that happened when they last aired it and was what turned me off from it when it came on TV (especially when it was like almost back-to-back with Naruto). I wonder if turning lollipops back into cigarettes is really going to be the savior for the series?

Great to see One Piece get onto Toonami. Hope it does well.

I think I actually would have gone to this panel if not for all the high pitched yelling. There's only so much I can take on a Sunday.

@Wales:

Sorry for the late reply. I just saw you online today. How was Momocon?

I think was there as well.

@takashichea: It was alright. I mainly went because they were having a big Bioware event that I wanted to see. However, since I've been going to conventions for almost ten years, I noticed its more geared to a younger audience. So next year I'll probably staff.
