How's it going my gumdrops? Last night, I watched Bleach and Naruto Shippuden on Swimnami. As I watched Bleach, I noticed that Swimnami showed the entire season opening like they normally did for these last 8 years.
After it became 2014, Swimnami decided to remove the opening and go straight to the episodes. Most of this month, Adult Swim did this to every show on their block EXCEPT for that God-awful flop, Space Dandy.
If Space Dandy was not world premiering every weekend and had Adult Swim NOT invested in airing that Seinen Action Anime, I highly doubt they would've removed every show's opening.
The block may have aired Bleach's opening, but it still did not air Naruto Shippuden's.
Although, Shippuden's ending was surprisingly aired. Adult Swim's viewers, including yours truly complained to them about removing every show's opening except Space Dandy's. This may seem trivial to most people, but Adult Swim has no respect for their viewers.
If Jason DeMarco and his merry band of village idiots expect for Space Dandy to be their next cash cow like Bleach and Naruto, they're delusional.
Japan does not care for Space Dandy's Manga in particular. That's why its Anime has ONLY 13 episodes compared to the average 20 + episodes, if not perennial episodes like other Anime genres and sub-genres.
Just like the American audience dictates American shows and their seasons, the same applies to Japan and their audience.
Also, I noticed that Swimanmi created a new promo for their block. The latest promo is about the female characters on Swimnami, which is once again, more bullshit. The promo is a facade about "women's empowerment" by promoting physically strong yet emotionally weak female characters from Shonen Jump Action Anime on their block.
Last weekend, I e-mailed both Cartoon Network and Adult Swim my previous Cartoon Sunday blog about them being sexist networks. I have said this MANY times over the last few years both on and offline, as well as famous filmmakers/screenwriters such as Kevin Smith:
Anytime Cartoon Network and Adult Swim will cancel any animation because they don't want to acknowledge their female demographic, that speaks volumes. We are only calling spades, "spades."
On a much lighter note for today, I stumbled upon 4 outtake videos from the Sci Fi Romance Adventure Anime, Noein. It use to air on The Sci Fi Channel's Ani-Monday block in 2007.
Noein is a very complex series to watch, which can seem very confusing to casual viewers. It has themes consisting of time travel, quantum physics, and parallel universes. Only Haruka Kaminogi can control every parallel universe.
As you watch this dubbed trailer in English for a better understanding of Noein, please bear with me.
Noein: Manga Entertainment's US Preview (2012)
Listening to this English Dub promo from Manga Entertainment makes me cringe. I say this because of the announcer's pronunciaton of the words "Manga" and "Noein." After studying Japanese and listening to other people mispronounce Japanese words, you will understand what I mean.
Even though I have not bought the DVD's for Noein ( I only watched it on The Sci Fi Channel's Ani-Monday block, years ago), 4 disks consist of English dubbed bloopers by the voice acting cast are featured on the DVD's. I watched Noein's bloopers years ago and thought they were hilarious. With that being said, here are Noein's outtakes for today's Cartoon Sunday.
1) Noein Outtakes Volume 1 (2006)
2) Noein Outtakes Volume 2 (2006)
3) Noein Outtakes Volume 3 (2006)
4) Noein Outtakes Volume 5 (2006)
