    Hmm, moving IGPX to Cowboy Bebop’s old timeslot, huh? Interesting.

  • Pedro Rosas

    Am I the only person who dislikes FLCL? I seriously don’t understand why people like it

    • Johnson Cameron

      People liked it due to the really bizzare storyline and how off the wall the characters were at the time.

    • Rick Xeros

      You know there was a time when I didn’t like it either… I’m more annoyed in this case that they’re replaying FLCL AGAIN… being only six episodes long its sooo easy for me to get sick of it…

  • RagunaXL

    not familiar with sword art online. gotta check that out. inuyasha, hardly a favorite of mine, but I’ll get up to watch it on the days I have to work early. now I have to get the cowboy bebop complete set.

  • Kamille

    for the first time Toonami will broadcast a series at the same time that is being released in Japan but why it has to be this Space Dandy crap? X(

    • Kyle Emch

      My guess is that it’s being made by the same guy that did Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.

    • Johnson Cameron

      Space Dandy should be good though i liked Cowboy Bebop and Champloo a lot.
