Black Lagoon is coming to Toonami.
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-01-24/cartoon-network-toonami-block-to-air-black-lagoon-anime

Discuss.

>>100856242
It's a great series,and I'm happy that /v/ will be able to see it.
>>
>>100856242
Good. It's about time they aired something other than shonenshit.
>>
Toonami airing something which isn't a shounen?

Gee wilickers.
>>
>>100856407
I don't even see Toonami threads on /v/ anymore. They're all on /co/ as of now.
>>
Great. A BL thread.
I have one question.
Where the fuck did Revy acquired her skills?
She can dive,shoot guns like spec ops.
Is she CIA? Like Eda?
>>
All those bleeps are going to annoy the fuck out of me though
And I imagine now that it's going to air on Toonami /a/ will suddenly hate it due to raging elitism syndrome.
>>
>>100856517
They've been airing Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell for a while now.

It always seemed like the type of show that would air on Adult Swim to me. Are you sure it's Toonami and not Adult Swim though because it's got to be censored to hell anyways.

Fuck off to your board shitposters.

/a/ is dead if this shit isn't getting shitposted to death.

Toonami goes on /co/, fuck off.

Personally I think an animation bloc makes more sense on /tv/, but moot is stupid.

Go away /co/, and take the toonami kiddies with you.
>>
>>100856608
Black Lagoon isn't shonen, and considering we still generally agree that Ghost in the Shell and Cowboy Bebop are good series, I don't think that's gonna happen to Black Lagoon.
>>
>>100856785
>/a/ is dead, they aren't shitposting right now
That's terrible logic m8.

Do you think they will ever make another season to this show if it does well on Toonami?

Didn't they already air Black Lagoon on Toonami?

Man, fuck those guys.

As someone who has seen both. Black Lagoon is leaps and bounds better.

Also, there was a crossover chapter between the two awhile ago.
>>
>>100856681
They're not gonna get rid of it as long as it keeps getting good ratings.

I want to rape Revy

It's Thailand. It's burning hot over there for 365 days a year.

I'm ok with this. It had a good ED.

Seems like Adult Swim is running out of mainstream Shonen to put up and are moving to more mature series. Good for them.


Too bad /co/ is cancer, I wouldn't mind the discussion on /a/ if not for them.

How does it feel to know that the best thing western cartoons have produced within the last decade will never get any notoriety anywhere other than a few select corners of the internet?

Toonami's been a mixed bag of seinen and shounen for a good while.

I guarantee Toonami threads are 75% crossboarders that only show up for Toonami.
>>
Cool seems like a good show for that block, makes a lot more sense than naruto anyway. Naruto could air on regular CN and no one would give a fuck I don't know why they're wasting a spot on a programming block meant for mature shows

Doubt it. They're airing Blue Exorcist this Spring, and I'll bet you this time next year they'll have Magi and Attack on Titan.
>>
>>100857896
Apparently we are too, look at what we became, this is a toonami thread.
>>
>>100857896
/co/ is starved for content on a good day as it is, and /a/ went full autism modo when Toonami came back anyway.
>>
>>100857932
I'd love to watch SnK on Toonami, since the livewatch threads and streams are essentially MST3K in real time.
>>
>>100857086
>>100857661
It didn't even air on ASA.
>>
>>100858055
I could have sworn it did at one point
>>
>>100857808
You're talking about "Workfu" or whatever it's called?
I tried to find it on IMDB,but I found nothing.
Is it some kind of porn?
>>
>>100858002
>since the livewatch threads are essentially MST3K in real time
This is exactly why I love them. Their reactions to Dandy and SAO are golden.
>>
This is a good gateway anime. One of the first I watched. I'm good about this.
>>
>>100856755
Toonami is Adult Swim. They'd still probably censor it though.
>>
>>100857816
Same guy again. I followed toonami since it came back(Not with /co/ mind you). And no, it hasn't. The only seinen its had are carry overs from Adult Swim. Every single new show up to Space Dandy was Shonen. Not that all of them were bad, mind you. E7 was a saturday morning cartoon show and it was great, but my point remains.

>>100857932
I wouldn't mind SnK, its pretty hard for a shonen.

>>100857939
Good point, I just take the opportunity to shit on /co/.

>>100857956
Pick a better hobby then. Its pretty sad that the only notoriety you guys have is for letting tumblr roost on your board, and for hosting discussion for an ANIME block on a western comic/cartoons board.
>>
>>100857870
Nah. It will be long until we get a real kiss.
A lot of time and character development.

So what about all those fucks that won't be given?

>>
>>100856242
That's kind of cool I guess. They're actually getting a good show. It'll probably be censored quite a bit though. At least in the language department. And at least the dub is actually good and makes sense.

Agreed. Once their relationship takes off it means the manga is nearing it's end. That's OK in a sense, all good things come to end. I just hope there's enough for another season of anime before it happens.

Jormungand's dub is deplorable. Then again so are the dubs for half the shit Toonami's aired so that's not really saying much.

>>100858249
There have been like three of any notoriety. The rest are all Eva Clones. And E7 is the only one with positivity.
>>
>>100858362
This February. It's replacing FLCL. Which makes me wonder, are they going to rewrite some of the dialogue to make it more, shall we say, "Adult Swim"-y? Or is there a secret uncut version somewhere?
>>
>>100858279

As far as I recall, it aired on one of those movie channels, I think it was Starz or Encore, 'cause I remeber seeing it after some movie ended at mid-afternoon

There sure will be.
They made 3 season out of 76 chapters,right?
And Hiroe had wiritten 86 for now.
I'm giving it two years until we see season 4. If Madhouse will bother doing it.

Does the rest of the manga every return to a proper first world country?

Yakuza arc was the best by far, and I'd love to see something similar in the US, UK etc.

>not having BL air first so that Jorm can air right after and can go through both seasons without waiting
BL could of been great back on Spike TV when they could of potentially built an anime lineup around Afro Samurai before Geneon went under and FUNi picked up the license for BL
Also could this mean that the OVAs could get picked up for future airing on Toonami?

Because Toonami is an ACTION block. They may occasionally throw in some mystery and suspense, but a show has to have action to be eligible to air on Toonami. Madoka Magica has a better chance of airing on Toonami than K-ON! anon.

That didn't happen with Ghost in the Shell or Akira.
And it didn't make anyone hate One Piece any more then it already was.
That only made Space Dandy into a huge autism magnet.

So how good is Black Lagoon? I've never watched it. Dub or sub? Or is the manga better?

>>100860588
Exactly. And because of Space Dandy the same sentiment will carry over.

/a/ didn't exist when original toonami was airing. It only recently got revived.

It'd be "moeshit"
>>
>>100863518

Toonami used to have Sailor Moon and assuming the remake is actually good or will happen, Toonami would get Sailor Moon 2014.
>>
>>100863518
No, the average Toonami watcher loves Sailor Moon, which represents the vast majority of the Madoka fanbase amongst normals, including almost all actual female viewers of anime in English speaking countries.

Black Lagoon is pretty much already westernized from the very beginning, like Jormungand. English speaking countries are largely shonen/shoujo markets; Seinen doesn't do well, they say 'what the fuck is this shit'.

If you dislike the following series, you are probably a normal and a candidate for Toonami:

- Monster
- Akagi/Kaiji
- Anything by Tetsuo Hara
- Gantz
>>
>>100863731
Toonami also used to air in the daytime when kids would watch it.
>>
>>100863518
Considering how many fans in the US went to see the Madoka movies in theaters, I'd say large number of anime fans know how dark it is.
>>
>>100863771

That totally depends on the series.

Holy shit you are retarded. Voice actors who work in English dubs aren't supposed to imitate the seiyuu. They are supposed to act in a way that fits the character that they are voicing. Stephanie Sheh fit perfectly for Eureka. You sir are a flaming autist.

Is that why so many of them are downright awful?
Very few dubbed voices are done well, is this why?

It is, actually. didn't get much material beyond that (unless Urobuchi decides to do a 2nd season and finish the story) but it has all the familiar themes except romance.
>>
>>100864098
It's because Voice Acting is way more serious in Japan.

Her squeaky, shitty voice is awful, and I guess you're right, a shit girl does deserve a shit voice actress.

There's plenty of good milsurp, like K31's and Swedish Mauser's. If you want a babby killing saltrifle, Smith & Wesson makes M&P-10 and M&P-15, no frills AR-10 and AR-15 rifles for a decent price.

That's a fucking LOT of money.

You could buy a couple of really nice handguns for that, or some really nice rifles, or fuck, you could probably buy an actual Full-Auto Uzi for that kind of money.

What are you looking for in a rifle? What caliber? Detachable magazines or fixed magazine? Manual repeater or self-loading? If so, any specific action? Gas-piston, direct-impingement, roller-delayed blowback?

7000 dollars is seriously a lot of room to move with, but an actual Dragunova, a genuine one, will probably cost something like 40-50 000 dollars, very few of them were ever imported to the US. There's like, one guy on /k/ who has one, he must have a really good job.

Now, there's a number of ersatz solutions, the PSL is good, the Vepr, Saiga, TIGR, and a couple of others can all be good DMR's in 7.62x54r.

You could probably find one of these well within the 7k pricerange.

Depending on what you mean by "nice rifle", if you want something with the most functionality and versatility then I'd recommend an AR-15 lower and a handful of uppers. If you want the closest thing to a Dragunov that's relatively available stateside, get a TIGR.

Abused children are most likely to become the abusive parents. It's like a circle of violence.

It's released monthly (on the 19th) but the last chapter was released December 2nd of last year; even considering that the scanlators aren't exactly known for being speed demons, we should have gotten something by now considering that they're still active and releasing material.

I'd check their website but they don't have one; apparently they're IRC-exclusive.

Read the manga version. The anime makes a whole bunch of changes towards the end that messes up key themes that were presented in the original for "thematic" purposes. Either way the arc is pretty shit but it's vital for Rock's character development.

I still don't even understand what he said

>>100889260
she's a whore

>>100889260
It is several times implied (even in the show itself) that Revy once was the headliner for some BDSM act.
>>
>>100889260
She was doing SM shows before.

This is the biggest reason. Remember those stream threads for Martial hearts? Its like that.
>>
>>100889260
Statistically, pretty much any female in the Roanapur underworld has a pretty good chance of being a whore.

That and she did an S&M show once, as well as the fact that whores are often great informants.

The Manga version made it somewhat better for me.
Now I need to know about Dutch's possible stolen valor faggotry.
I also want to know more about Benny. How did he get in trouble with the mob and FBI at the same time? How do you go from Miami to SE Asia just like that? How did Revy rescue him? was there sexual tension between them too? Dutch mentions Revy going all "Charles Whitman" when Benny arrived too. I need more from this series than Rock being cockblocked.

This. We need more background on the main characters
Shit,we know more about Roberta and Garcia than we know about Dutch or Benny.
>>
>>100890051
I think we're going to get Dutch's backstory (or at least part of it) in this arc.

>>100890629
Vietnam flashback would be GOAT.
>>
>>100890629
So we'll find out sometime at the end of the year. Goddamn you Hiroe I need an update more than once every two months.

/co/ guy here. It's true.

Unfortunately, TV programming is one of the harshest battlefields out there.

Much like Japanese networks, Western networks also want to make as much money as possible. Unfortunately, the ways they make this money varies.

Nickelodeon has mostly rested its laurels on Spongebob and Dan Schneider comedies, with the occasional half hour saved for a series like Korra. And even then, they fuck up the scheduling by burning through episodes.

Cartoon Network has focused on comedies as well, because unlike action series they are easier for viewers to get into. They also have Ben 10 and Lego series for extra dosh.

Disney owns Marvel and Star Wars now, but pushes their programs to a cable-exclusive channel and continues to focus on series akin to Hannah Montana, Suite Life, and that crap.

Basically, what I'm saying is that it's a hard time to be a fan of those networks. Outside of Toonami, the only channel that shows anime is the CW's Vortexx, which airs Yu-Gi-Oh, Sonic X, and heavily edited Dragonball Z Kai.

But on the upside, Toonami is finding its niche. Bleach, the first show on Saturday nights, got an average of 400,000 viewers before Toonami and now almost always gets a million. So we're surviving.

Good. But they're censor it a lot

Ah fuck the anime was so good.
The manga was great too but the rooty tooty point and shooty in the anime was great fun. It was like a modern injection of hot blooded gunsmith cats.

>Dutch mentions Revy going all "Charles Whitman" when Benny arrived too

That's not what he said. He tells her he didn't remember hiring Charles Whitman when Revy goes berserk on the unarmed ship's crew on the nazi boat. After having calmed down a bit she gets it and promises to never do such a thing again. That's it.
