|so true. they've taken all the good shows off and put on crappy shows.|
yup they sure have.
Cartoon Network (ended 2003)
|I have to agree with everyone on this board...CN sucks...In the height of the anime era on CN in 1997 (when Toonami first aired) We had shows like Thundercats, a classic Superman short, extreme sports interviews, Voltron, Birdman, and The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest. Toonami's debut was in an atmosphere that felt nothing like the rest of Cartoon Network. And remember when Robotech premiered on CN during the first Toonami block. It was the best thing every on the air. We also had Rurouni Kenshin, Outlaw Star, Gundam Wing, Yu Yu Hakusho, Inuyasha, Dragonball Z, Ronin Warriors, Zoids, Cyborg009, .hack//SIGN, Tenchi Muyo, Cowboy Bebop, Big O (I wish this it had more episodes), G-Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam, 08th MS Team. Hey what ever happen to PILOT CANDIDATE!!! We need shows like this to make a come back. Didn't you love it when they showed Blue Submarine no.6 was on Toonami. These shows what mad me love anime even more. I hunger for more shows like these. But there where also good show that was not part of the anime line up like Samurai Jack, He-Man and the Master of the Universe and Reboot. Why not re-run these shows and give us something else to watch beside Kid's Next Door or Junitper Lee or the washed out old pokemon. But we all know when CN went all darkside on us. Was when the fall of 2001 CN annouced that they was bringing some of Toonami's lineup to KWB. Which I say was one of the most stupidest ideals every made by man. Leave our good show where they suppose to be at. SO PLEASE CN BRING BACK ALL OF OURS SHOWS!!!!!!!|
|let me try this one more time -- cartoon network lost the rights to broadcast the show and had no choice but to pull it when they did. they can no longer show it in america, and kenshin will never return on that network. as i've already tried to explain. |
and even if it did (which it won't) and it did get to adult swim, the edit wouldn't change because cn didn't do the edit. now, while it may be theoretically possible for the network to show unedited dubs available for purchase, as of now it's not in programming format that way.
it's nice to dream, but there's nothing wrong with realism and actually understanding what the problem is (besides cn's infamous scheduling reputation).
|Why did CN loose the rights to broadcast the show?|
i've never been able to find a firm reason for it, just speculation. much of the latter centers on the fact that rk never fit on toonami, where cartoon network first had it. the demographic it generated was older than what the network was looking for. plus, it is an older anime series and doesen't fit into the modern look of adult swim (except for eva, of course, but that's never been shown). the general theory is that cartoon network didn't feel it was worth the higher cost requested (due to the strong manga sales) to renew an older and already twice-run series, so they let it go in march.
remember, this is the same network that dropped sailor moon (after running it into the ground), tenchi and outlaw star, and currently have case closed and cyborg 009 on indefinite haitus.
whatever the reason, it is gone for good. time to go back and watch my tapes.
|wow. even the oavs and the movie? that's a great source. you are fortunate. i bought them all on tape, so i can pop them in whenever i'm in the mood.|
|I didn't really start watching CN/AS until about 2 years ago, so I guess I missed this golden age of CN.|
