How's it going my gumdrops? Had I not discovered, that Black Lagoon's timeslot has been changed to 1/2 hour later than usual, I wouldn't be so annoyed today. Normally, it airs at 1:30am Central rather than 2am. It would be great if all the Shonen and the only Seinen Anime, that I watch, didn't have so many gaps between each other. Here are the only shows I watch on the Swimnami block in this usual order:
12am Naruto Shippuden
1am Blue Exorcist
1:30am Black Lagoon
Because I hate sitting through Attack On Titan, Space Dandy, One Piece, and now Beware The Batman, I normally come back online to respond to my friends/subscribers on other sites. Luckily for me, I've already watched Bleach, Naruto Shippuden, Blue Exorcist, and Black Lagoon in Japanese. Watching them in English on Adult Swim is more of a refresher for me. If I could, I would schedule all 4 of these shows to be aired back to back at slightly earlier times. Then, I would ditch the entire lineup. With the way things are going within the next month or so, I probably won't be watching Adult Swim on the weekends. That's until I hear them announce more Anime titles, that are worth watching. I really do believe, that Adult Swim wants to keep alienating their intended demographic more than they have already. As soon as they buy decent Anime titles, they air them at unreasonable hours. Most people are sleeping around 1 and 2 am. Not that I'll be asleep around those hours, however I have other things I need and want to do.
Blue Exorcist only has 2 more episodes and Black Lagoon only has 6 episodes left. This is in addition to 5 OVA's. I wonder if Swimnami will air the OVA's, Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail.

Chances are great Adult Swim won't bother airing them. Black Lagoon's 5 OVA's each run for 35 minutes. If the network ever chose to air them, they would knock every series out of schedule. That's unless they were to marathon all 5 OVA's on a late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Without a doubt, I'm not re-watching Gurren Lagann, after I watched that depressing Anime several times on The Syfylis Channel, years ago. LOL!
Adult Swim really needs to bring back the Horror Anime Genre. There's tons to choose from each Shonen, Shojo, Seinen, and Josei genre. Hell, I would be satisfied if the network aired Devil May Cry as Black Lagoon's replacement.

Once again, Swimnami needs to spice up their schedule because every viewer doesn't want to re-watch Gurren Lagann. I'm not the only Adult Swim viewer, who feels this way. Well, at least it hasn't been over played up the ass like Cowboy Bebop, Ghost In The Shell, and Inuyasha. LOL! Of all the titles to buy, Gurren Lagann? Most people with basic cable and satellite dish packages get The Syfylis Channel. We've already seen it several times. Too bad I don't work at Cartoon Network or Adult Swim. I would give them input regarding better animation to acquire and air in general. Why do they continue to beg their viewers to watch their programming, when it's mostly a heaping pile of shit? If Adult Swim wasn't so sexist, they could buy and air Ghost Hunt.

Ghost Hunt is like a Horror/Supernatural Mystery version of Case Closed for the female audience. Shojo Horror Anime titles aren't always that feminine. I'm willing to bet the male demographic would still watch Hell Girl and Ghost Hunt. If "Bronies" can sit and watch My Little Pony (which was originally for us little girls, during the 1980's), they can watch some Shojo Anime. ROTFLMFAO!!! I mean, seriously.
My friends/subscribers on Xanga, Blogster, Writers Cafe, and Horror-Punks already know, that I'm constantly complaining about Cartoon Network and Adult Swim being sexist. Since both networks will never air any Shojo and Josei Anime, I thought I would show you 1 of my favorite Josei titles, NANA. Remember when I posted my Song Saturday blog about Anna Tsuchiya? In cased you missed it, the link is below.
Rather than droning on with my complaints, I'll get straight to the point. On a much lighter note, here's the English Dub of NANA for today's Cartoon Sunday.
