That crap on Adult Swim
« on: August 26, 2005, 11:56:41 PM »
Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Out of everything they're showing now, what has you most interested?

I'm digging Paranoia Agent and sCRYed. sCRYed is just a better DBZ, and Paranoia Agent is a thinking anime, and I like that.

Paranoia Agent, definately.  That, and FLCL re-runs.  :)

It's rare Adult Swim picks up anything as good as Paranoia Agent.

Samurai Champloo is unremarkable, but is still a decent watch.

I'll upload my s-CRY-ed review so you can all see my opinion on that.

Agreed, on all counts, but Adult Swim normally picks up quality anime.  Witch Hunter Robin, Wolf's Rain...they have a decent track record.

Oh, and I think they start playing Earth Girl Arjuna tonight...

I just can't get myself to watch more than 15 minutes of Adult Swim, let alone television altogether. The only exceptions are Family Guy and sometimes Futurama. Seeing Paranoia Agent in dub is just not the same, even though the dub is not half-bad. Scryed looks too lame to even bother with. And Samurai Champloo has the same disease as Paranoia Agent.

I like Samurai Champloo and FMA(when it was on Saturdays...)...I rarely stay up late enough to watch Paranoia Agent or FLCL or Bebop(though I have...and those three aren't bad at all)...I never really got into s-cry-ed, personally...
When in doubt, speak Italian and sing "Seven Nation Army"

WHR:  6/7
Wolf's Rain:  4

They could do a lot better than those two IMO.  Arjuna doesn't start tonight.  They're showing InuYasha Castle Beyond the Looking Glass.

I am interested in Castle Beyond the Looking Glass. It starts at midnight, correct?

My favorite as of right now is Samurai Champloo.  But, the best they've ever had is undoubtedly FLCL.

I believe so.  Is that the first one or the second.  The first one was pretty bad.  The second...  Well, it was better than the first.

FLCL reruns for me. I missed the first episode of Samurai Champloo, so I'm not watching it. Nothing else really looks interesting enough for me to watch.

Fshuck AS. Cartoon Network is where it's at. Y4Y 4 TEH N4RUT0!!!1!!

Anway.........I really like Paranoia Agent. It can really throw you for a loop, and really leaves you wanting more. As far as i'm concerned, everything else on AS sucks.

Because I can
