Toonami Saturday night!

Bleach - Missed it...

Naruto - Naruto himself is finally up! The fight between Naruto & Kiba has been a fun one so far, although there's a bit too much flashback padding.

One Piece - Foxy's up to more tricks, but the Strawhats have a fairly easy time of it this go around (the highlight was easily Foxy's pedal powered crab vehicle, which had Team Rocket written all over it, lol). Looks like things are going to get serious now though, as they've ran into someone from Robin's past, and an intimidating one at that.

Soul Eater - the third Excalibur episode! It was pretty funny, but I just don't think it was of the same caliber as his previous appearances (the highlight was actually getting to see someone fight using him, and he lives up to the hype).

Sword Art Online - Episode of the night! The episode starts out roaring out the gate, with a pretty intense duel (with quite a surprising conclusion). Turns out Heathcliff is a psychopathic murderer though, and although he puts Kirito in a compromising position, it's Asuna to save the day (although there were a few oddities with this encounter, as to why he didn't use that super shield skill he used against Kirito during the earlier duel). Also, Kirito & Asunas' relationship gets heated up to the next level, and the level after that.

Also, T.O.M. hosted a Q&A session, tackling questions posted by visitors to Toonami's new Tumblr page (a new feature they'll have monthly).

SAO is kind of a stupid anime but I keep finding myself defending it. I like it but I normally wouldn't be interested in defending it. But wow, has the backlash been for nothing against this anime.

I'm not quite sure what you're saying.

Are you saying that even though it has it's flaws, you still like it, and that the backlash against it has been for the wrong reasons?

basically. At worst, it has similar problems to similar anime. But it got so much backlash against it last year, and I can't see why.

Wait... They finally introduced Akoji?!
Time to start staying up to watch Toonami.

Probably because it was so popular when it was airing. Now, instead of it being cool to like it, it's cool to hate on it.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

You haven't gotten Far enough. It goes in...weird directions in the second half.

I constantly hear the second half of SOA goes ridiculously down hill or something.

To be fair, I hear the second half is based on the second book...which wasn't as good as the first. The books apparently get better, so if they ever do more, it should turn out well.

In retrospect, I liked second half SAO more than first half. It was a refreshing change from all the feels the first half had.

The summaries of Soul eater and SAO was too accurate, they were good episodes.

Well part of the reason I point this out is to tempt fate since I've known this for a while.

Either I'll be right or my comments will be hilarious. Either way, I win.

Is it sad that I think the Megaman OVA is a better put together anime than Angel Beats?

In response to the whole "Sword Art Online" discussion; as I see it, there were two reasons for why SAO got as popular as it did. The first is that the three beginning episodes were very good. Those three episodes were a great introduction to a fantasy world that could change from breathtaking to threatening at any instant. The second reason for the show's popularity is that...well, it's a self-insert wish-fulfillment scenario. Main protagonist Kirito is a godly BA character in the game of SAO and he's easily able to romance a half-dozen of females all while having a non-personality.

As for my opinion on SAO? It's a frustrating show, especially considering those excellent first three episodes. The show clearly has the chops to be more than what it inevitably wants to be, which mostly is (for the first season) a collection of side stories attached to a clumsily handled romance. What makes this all more painful is that glimpses of greatness keep popping up in the show from time to time, emphasizing the insignificance of the actual stories at hand. Then the show jumps down a spectacularly deep pit when season 2 starts and it never considers climbing back out.
