How's it going my gumdrops? It's Cartoon Sunday. I forgot to mention, 2 weeks ago, I was in the middle of creating a Tumblr account. I deleted it as soon as it was created. LOL! Tumblr is a state of confusion and hardcore with their terms. While I wasted several hours creating my Tumblr account and reading their gajillion rules and regulations, I took a peak at Adult Swim's Tumblr page. I read the article this guy's talking about, before I deleted my Tumblr account.
Soccer Moms Attack Adult Swim & Swimnami:
I agree with most of what he said. If it were up to me, Adult Swim would have its own channel to air more Josei and Seinen Anime on it. The network is called "Adult Swim" for a reason. The network should always be airing adult animation. The brats will have to watch Pokemon elsewhere. LOL! The dumbest part about these angry Soccer Moms is that some of the shows airing on Adult Swim are currently airing on FOX. Family Guy, Amercan Dad, and Bob's Burgers for example, will be airing tonight on FOX, (in the early evening). Therefore, Soccer Mom's are throwing temper tantrums over stupidness. It's only a matter of time until they shit bricks over Black Lagoon premiering on Swimnami, next month. They really should be ranting at Cartoon Network and Adult Swim for blacklisting the entire female demographic. There are some of us young girls and women, who enjoy watching animation just as much as Cartoon Network and Adult Swim's male demographic.
Lately, Swimnami's programming has improved on late Saturday nights and early Sunday mornings. Too bad Adult Swim won't oust Space Dandy and move up some of the other Anime. I'd rather watch Naruto Shippuden, Bleach, Blue Exorcist, and Black Lagoon back to back than have to wait an extra 30 minutes for One Piece to be over, in order to watch Blue Exorcist. There's other things I'd rather be doing with my time than waiting for One Piece and that God awful Space Dandy to go off. In my opinion, they should show One Piece before all the better shows air and be done. I'm also in favor of One Piece and Space Dandy being removed. LOL!
Swimnami won't air a Josei Anime like Amatsuki for the female demographic. Although, based on what I've read on Wikipedia and Anime News Network, no English dubbing company has acquired the rights to dub it. I haven't had the time to completely watch Amatsuki. However, I watched the 1st episode a while ago. It would be something good to air and I bet the male demographic would enjoy Amatsuki.

Then, there is the Seinen Anime Another. I watched Another last winter. It's a good Seinen Horror-Mystery Anime. I don't know why Swimnami didn't acquire the rights to Another instead of Deadman Wonderland. At least the violence in Another isn't mindless. Some have compared this Seinen Horror-Mystery Anime to being similar to the movie, Final Destination.
If Swimnami dared to air Another, I'm sure the Soccer Moms and national news stations would go apeshit. They would most likely blame the Anime and Adult Swim for another school massacre. After all, blaming entertaiment violence is always the perfect scapegoat for anything regarding domestic terrorism. Actually, Another has nothing to deal with domestic terrorism.

In the meantime, this is all I have to say for this week's Cartoon Sunday. You know the drill. Let me know what you think!
