I don't believe it. I can't believe it. It would hurt too much if it were some kind of hoax.

It was tweeted by both Adult Swim and Steven Blum, the Voice of Tom.

...So.....it's true Inki....you may release your manly tears.

Wolfy, you might want to use this for the link in your opening post.  Much better than a mere image, wouldn't you say? ;)

Oh, and also, from a recent press release...

I don't really remember much about it, but I did watch it every night before bed (stayed up on school nights, had a special arrangement with mum) and I honestly don't have fond memories of it... I know that's what you'd expect from me, but usually, I'm devoid of nostalgia and that's why I don't care. Here, this is nostalgic to me, and I honestly can't think of a single fond memory...

Lets see, what did I watch... I may be forgetting some, but this is what I can recall.

Dragonball Z. Watched this all the way from the first episode to the ridiculous filler with Buu getting ice cream -.- I actually did like the Cell Saga though, but aside from that, and Pandora's Box (look her up) DBZ left a bad taste.

Bubblegum Crisis. Some shit about robots gaining intelligence while a bunch of middle aged women (no, seriously, that one detail felt inventive to me, that they looked like they were older then 25 and dressed like self respecting adults) have mech suits. Because. Don't remember, and really don't care.

Bleach. Exactly like Dragonball Z, where most of the fights were just panning shots of the scenery fading so no one would have to animate the torturous mid battle dialogue.

And then we come to the first and last Anime I would ever watch of my own choice. If you know me, you already know what that is. Neon Genesis Evan-fucking-gelion x.x I want brain breach to be real. I want a specific delivery system for the bleach, so that that particular memory can be erased even after so much time.

The only show I didn't mind was Cardcaptors, and I was in a pretty heavy Pokemon obsession at the time, so I kind of saw it as Pokemon-4-girls (and strangely that attracted me at that age o.O)

Strange, I don't recall some of those ever showing on Toonami...  Or at least not in the US, anyway. ^^;

Hmm.  I know it was late at night ('cause the little Oni was asleep) and I thought it was Cartoon Network...

*scuttles off to Wikipedia*

Sorry - it was Outlaw Star that I remember from Toonami (and even then, they had to edit in the black bikini)  Not sure what I got mixed up with FMA, but Wiki reminded me of Cyborg 009, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Ruroni Kenshin.

Cowboy Bebop and FMA sounds like Adult Swim's earlier days.  Of course, Adult Swim started late at night as Toonami's 'Midnight Run', so maybe you're remembering a show from then?  I think that was mostly Gundam shows, way back then, though.

I know Toonami introduced me to what was possibly the best anime in the world. Big O. :)

Big O was good - confusing as all get-out, but good.  I liked the concept of a world where everyone had forgotten the past.

I remember having seen every show people have listed in this thread so far on Adult Swim at some point, with one exception:

Bubblegum Crisis.

Really? They aired that? The old series or Bubblegum Crisis 2010 (or whatever the remake series was called)? I wouldn't be surprised if the older series was on there at some point, but the remake was...err...somewhat more "out there" than AS's usual content. >.>

On topic: I have to admit, while I enjoyed AS at the time...this isn't a big deal to me. I mean, if I want to watch a neat show late at night these days, I go to Hulu. Or Netflix. Or somewhere similar with the shows I want to watch when I want to watch them with few/no commercials in the way. Chances are if I'm up watching Adult Swim it's because I literally couldn't find anything else to do that night and couldn't sleep. ;p
