Any reason you give a spoilerific summary of each chapter you read? As it is filled with spoilers, I'd imagine the only people reading it are those who've already read/watched it.

Well, it's actually a summary every 25 chapters, instead of every chapter.

I pretty much just write it, so I can share with everyone what I've been reading. I do give clear spoiler tags so they're easy to avoid if you so wish

It's also good to talk about the stuff you just read. It can be a fun excercise. I do it all the time when it comes to anime. I'm terrible at summaries, but I love to give reasons why I'm enjoying something or not.

I was looking for this anime with this girl that gets confused with the girl from the ring a lot and people tend to be scared of her, it's a really cute anime that I Wana find again.

Fun fact! If you look up "Creepy anime girl" on google the first picture you will get Is Remilia Scarlet from Touhou.

Edit: never mind I found it, Kimi ni Todoke.

Marisa- It's so hot, I'm gonna die here.
Reimu- If you die, I'll feed your corpse to the birds.
Remilia- My, it'd be fine if you'd let me take care of that.
Marisa- That's a definite no.

Toonami Saturday night!

Bleach - Another Kon filler episode. It wasn't terrible I guess, but it just felt overall meh.

Naruto - That first match was pretty cool, and reminded me of something I'd be likely to see in Puppet Master Genzo. Also got some back story into Sakura & Inoe's rivalry.

One Piece - While Luffy & Zoro battle it out, the rest of the gang's fighting for their memories. (also, is this where Luffy gets his "X" scar? I thought this was filler?)

Soul Eater - Thanks Medusa, now I'm going to be creeped out for the rest of the night. At least there was some humor thrown in, with the students failing intensely against Stein's test.

Sword Art Online - This had a giant dragon fight, so it wins this week. That is all.

Also, they had a new inspirational music show collage thingy. It was OK, I guess (it didn't use any clips from SAO, which came as a surprise, since they've never left out a show before when it comes to these sorts of things).

Well I think it's about time for a restructuring of my top 5 anime:

1. Neon Genesis Evangelion.

2. One Piece.

3. Lucky Star

4. Trigun

5. Fullmetal Alchemist

Also, it seems Adult Swim has aired tons of anime over the past few years, and it begs the question, why do we need Toonami then?

BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME

But seriously, if watching anime on tv is often more fun than watching on the internet (which it is), adding this cool guy on his cool spaceship to make the whole block feel more connected instead of just random shows that are aired, is also more fun.

and it worked, because AS anime was close to being dead before this.

Hmm... how much, if any, do they censor on Toonami? I know they did in the original run, back when it aired earlier.

Well that's good. I'd assume it's all dub as well. If I had cable, I'd probably watch it. Then of course, doesn't Funimation have a Cable Station?

Yes, though it's not on Comcast or Time Warner Cable as far as I know.

It was also dropped from Fios a while ago. While I did like it, it wasn't that interesting (sometimes that even included the programming) and does nothing to make you want to watch it over just going on the internet, especially compared to new Toonami (or practically any major television channel for that matter). Toonami probably also works because other people actually watch it and it's only 6 hours (and only the first 3 or 4 really matter).

That being said, it did introduce me to School Rumble and Mushishi, probably a couple of others too. So that was nice of it.

@kkslider
Whaddya mean that only the first 3 hours matter? What about Bebop and FMA in the early morning?

(Speaking of which, when @RR529 does his summaries, he never mentions these two, or Inuyasha and other later/earlier programs.)

I meant more the fact that no one watches anything at that time rather than the shows. That and those shows have been rerun a ton (Bebop is rerun so much on AS you would think it was a formerly cancelled Fox comedy)
