Adult Swim's New Line Up
I've never been a fan of the Adult Swim/ Cartoon Network anime line ups. They play the most family friendly/generally shitty shows they can find. Inu Yasha, Full Metal Alchemist, Big O, Lupin, s-CRY-d? Lame. The rare decent show really is like a 70 degree day in a 200 degree Summer. I definitely appluad them for playing shows like Cowboy Bebop, Paranoia Agent, FLCL, etc. I mean, its adult programming. Ages 14 and up. I think most AS viewers could handle something, anything more adult than Inu Yasha. I also wouldn't mind more robots.
So when I saw that they were going to start playing The Vision of Escaflowne in October I went as far as making a Xanga entry about it. That's excitement. Fox Kids played maybe 6 episodes of it when I was 12 and it was a pretty good dub. Aside from that, though, its a great show with incredible art and an amazing soundtrack. Definitely one of those instant classic series.
Another instant classic and probably one of any fan's top 20 series, Neon Genesis Evangelion, will start playing in October as well. I love this series. Who doesn't? Its...mind blowing. But I saw it in Japanese with subtitles. I'm a little afraid of the dub. And the adult content. I don't think we'll be seeing Pen-Pen drinking beer. Or Misato being..herself.
In any case, I'm really excited for some more respectable anime to watch on late night teevee and I am officially counting down the weeks. Fall can't come soon enough.
