Another anime topic that has been ready to be posted, debated and discussed us do older series get updated “paint” for the newer generation? What do I mean by that, you might ask? Well, back in 2000/2001 I’ve twitched through some of Lupin The 3RD on Toonami and I realize it is an older anime than that, (could be wrong though), but back then, I didn’t notice things that made me think of this post.
Weeks ago while catching the series again on Toonami, I started noticing the characters having/using smart phones and Ipads etc. that weren’t in the show back than. Am I crazy or do some anime series get redone and rereleased for future generations?
Again, this may tell my age, but me no care! 🙂 If you were into anime and Toonami like I was in the 90s/early 2000s, more than likely you were aware of Outlaw Star. Love it or not, it was on in the afternoon here and had a good run. At first the anime was eh to me, having a few episodes skipped, but it grew on me like grass, sprouting and I came to like it. 🙂
For the last few Saturday nights, I’ve been watching Outlaw Star on Toonami, and despite me twitching from the English voices, though the DO TRY, I’ve rather enjoyed revisiting it all these years later. True, I’d get the series on DVD/Blu-ray so the twitching can stop, (one anime on my bucket list), but for now, the dubbed version will do.
What are your thoughts and feelings about the series? I’d love to talk to ya! 🙂
No this will not be an angry rant that gets me to pull my hair out, swear and more, I’m way past that, have been for years. If you don’t know, I WAS a fan of Adult Swim when it first aired, that and Toonami were my shit back in the day, and as A.S. merged with Toonami, my Saturday nights week booked! Swim’s Sunday lineup was a hit or miss with me though.
Oh, they had Sealab 2121, Space Ghost Coast 2 Coast and one more I kinda watched, but… A few years ago, I made the mistake of viewing Adult Swim on Sundays & about lost my mind. One show, “Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show Great Job!” did me in on the whole Adult Swim thing, though Toonami’s still watched, even though it has been limited to 11pm-3:30am.
I caught two episodes of Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show Great Job a few years ago & thought it was a pile of shit. I might be old, but the humor was not there, or it was in reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally poor taste, having me wonder wtf! Last night, in my tired state, Adult Swim was turned on & saw a preview for the two morons new show, which looks more distasteful than their first. Again, I might be out of date, old or my definition of funny could be different, but what pull do Tim and Eric have with A.S.?
What are your thoughts, does anyone like or watch their shows?
