The most horrifying part is that Tim & Eric
are the tomatoes.
The execs at Adult Swim really want to know what anime fans like about anime...
And so they periodically make shows that have animesque subject matter and are clearly not in the Animation Age Ghetto
, but are also clearly Western Animation
. They want to find out exactly what fans of anime like other
than the country of origin.
Think about it: without Adult Swim, the Mooninite Bomb Scare would have never happened, and Jim Sample would have never had to step down as the head of Cartoon Network.
To be more precise, Aqua Teen is to blame. Space Ghost: Coast to Coast could also be why the channel went downhill. Without it, [adult swim] would never exist. Aqua Teen is also a direct spin-off of SGC 2 C
It would take a lot
of money to help make new bumps each week, just for late Saturday nights/early Sunday mornings, and according to a leaked schedule for May 26 by TV Guide (most guides have TBA in the three empty slots).
With much of the schedule looping for the next three hours (except for the FLCL and Bleach switch at 2AM/5AM).
Knowing [adult swim
], they're milking it for all it's worth. When in the last few years has [adult swim] ever
cared about anime fans in the last few years?
