How's it going my gumdrops? Earlier this morning, Tokyo Ghoul premiered on Adult Swim's Toonami block. Hopefully, this Seinen SciFi Horror Action Anime does well in the ratings, despite the Toonami nit pickers acting like crybabies and throwing their tantrums ad nauseam because it does not live up to being the stereotypical Toonami Anime.
To all those who have never watched episode 1 of Tokyo Ghoul, if you liked Parasyte -The Maxim-, you should enjoy Tokyo Ghoul.
Over the last 2 weeks, the Toonami fans that watch One Piece have been acting like crybabies because One Piece was replaced with Tokyo Ghoul. Meanwhile, there are the other Toonami fans, who love ruining everything for other fan bases with their incessant nit picking of shows, that don't fit their personal Toonami archetypes.
Those Anime fans in particular are partially to blame for the cancelation of Chiller TV's Anime Wednesday block from 2 summers ago. Toonami fans and other Anime fans nit picked Anime Wednesday so much, that their incessant nit picking was the straw that broke the camel's back.
Their constant bitching online contributed to the downfall of Anime Wednesday.
Nearly 2 years later, I am still reeling over the fact, that Chiller TV not only did a piss poor job of advertising Anime Wednesday, but also canceled their own Horror Anime block within the first 3 weeks.
About 10 years ago, SciFi launched their Ani-Monday block. Shortly after, Chiller TV began airing Ani-Monday.
Because Chiller TV and Syfy are sister channels owned by NBC Universal, Horror Anime that previously aired on SciFi eventually got transferred to Chiller TV. This wasn't the case with the network's Anime Wednesday block the last time.
The Anime Wednesday block actually had shows, that SciFi NEVER aired, which was a positive. However, the Horror Anime for Chiller TV's Anime Wednesday block did NOT necessarily qualify as Horror Anime. Both Anime AND Toonami Anime fans made the biggest stinks online about Is This A Zombie? airing on this Horror Anime block.
Is This A Zombie? did NOT qualify as a Horror Anime. In fact, 1/2 the shows on Chiller's Anime Wednesday block were comedies for a Horror Anime block.
Even though I enjoyed watching Black Blood Brothers and Is This A Zombie? years before Chiller acquired them, they were mostly Supernatural Comedy Anime.
There are a plethora of Horror Anime titles, that Chiller TV could've acquired and aired at a decent timeslot.
I believe if Chiller really wanted to compete against Adult Swim's Toonami block, the network could've possibly aired Horror Drama and Mystery Anime at 9pm on Saturdays or Sundays. This would've been MUCH better than airing Anime on Wednesdays at midnight.
Chiller TV also could've aired its Horror Anime block starting at 9pm on Fridays. Although, that would've been too logical.
I am somewhat surprised the network did NOT acquire the Occult Supernatural Detective Anime, Tactics. SciFi originally aired it on Ani-Monday in 2008.
Then again, Tactics might've lacked suspense for Horror Anime fans. The Anime is set, during the Taisho Era as opposed to the Meiji Era in the Manga. Regardless, Tactics centers around the young man, Kantarou Ichinomiya.
Since childhood, he had the ability to see yokai and was of course, ostracized for having this special ability. Kantarou's yokai friends told him, that he must find the oni-eating tengu, in order to become stronger.
Shortly after, Kantarou vowed to find the oni-eating tengu and name it. Long story short, the florist/part-time exorcist finds this oni-eating tengu on an assignment in the mountains and names him, Haruka.
I could explain more, but it would be much better for you to watch Tactics in the link below for today's Cartoon Sunday.
