Anime 132

aztektum writes "Since Saturday's tend to be slow days and it is Saturday morning I thought I'd send along Cartoon Network news. Ain't It Cool has a breakdown of Cartoon Networks 2002 itinerary." Several of the shows have been mentioned here before (Pilot Candidate and Gundam 0083 are both enjoyable so far. As is YuYu). Mentions the arrival of new DBZ in september. Also lots of non anime bits including Justice League (Many new episodes!). Also new Harvey Birdman, Brak, and Sealab 2021 although Space Ghost seems absent from the roster. Anyway, there are a lot of other shows mentioned too, but those are the shows that I have commanded tivo to snag ;)

I'd rather they left Nighline on the air and CBS just replace Letterman with Space Ghost. That way I can still get a good news program and Space Ghost. Besides Letterman hasn't been funny in almost ten years. While I'm at it, Conan should be moved into an 11:30 time slot.

I can't wait for SeaLab 2021 though. The funnies part of the whole show is during the end credits. I really enjoyed the time travel episode where the alternate Quinn's were forced to fight gladiator style.

Justice League is also really well done, however there werent enough episodes made for an initial run.

Well I can't wait till they start showing the new episodes.

Me gusta el Laboratorio de Dexter (5, Interesting)

mikeboone (163222) | more than 12 years ago | (#3134952)

Here's something to try if you're bored. Cartoon Network is the only channel on my DirecTV lineup (besides the PPV movies) which I can get in Spanish. You go to the menu and change the Audio Language settings.

Not all the shows come in Spanish, but a bunch do. It's a good way to learn. I actually prefer Dexter's voice in Spanish than in English. Johnny Bravo, Scooby Doo, and lots of the old Warner Bros. cartoons work too.

BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan -- Bad weather has forced al Qaeda fighters involved in the biggest battle of the Afghan war with U.S.-led troops to retreat into caves.

U.S. military spokesman Major Bryan Hilferty said fighting at the start of the second week of the battle in freezing mountains near the eastern city of Gardez had slackened off for both sides because of driving snow, rain and strong winds.

"The weather is extremely bad," Major Hilferty told a news conference at Bagram air base on the outskirts of Kabul which has become the U.S. control point for "Operation Anaconda."

"The weather is extremely bad," said Maj. Hilferty. "They're fighting at 8-12,000 feet, the temperatures are cold, it's raining and snowing. They (al Qaeda) appear to be pretty much hunkered down."

He said there were no U.S. or coalition casualties in overnight fighting which mainly involved search and destroy missions in the mountains of Paktia Province near the Pakistan border and about 150 km (95 miles) south of the capital

The Downfall of the Dane?! (3, Interesting)

Eddy Johnson (467614) | more than 12 years ago | (#3134968)

First of all, they're definitely putting a lot into one channel at once. They're going to be cutting a lot of ratings-grabbers. And with all this stuff, I have a nagging feeling in the back of my head that the show that has fed me my energy for the past year or two will be gone...

SCOOBY-DOO.

I know I sound like an idiot, since it's such a big hit, but it's one of the last old-school programs left on CN. Looney Tunes is the only other big old-school cartoon on there, but it's dwindling in how much airtime it gets. Scooby is too, especially since they gave some Scooby time to WB (which sucks, because they cram so many commercials in).

Scooby-Doo is likely to be the last holdout with Looney Tunes, finally being abolished back to Boomerang. However, very few people get Boomerang. To solve this solution, I still think CN should separate into three different entities and make them all as availible as CN - in fact, they should all be availible as a package for the same price, or just slightly more. Here are my ideas for the separation, found under the last CN story a few days ago... [slashdot.org]

Maybe I'm paranoid over Scooby's possibly leaving, but if you've noticed all the CN changes over the past year or two, you should be afraid too...

Re:The Downfall of the Dane?! (1)

afree87 (102803) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135020)

Scooby Doo is nice, but which one are you talking about? The only good one is the original. I suppose you could say the one with the little kids is adequate, but the movies -- ye gods! The whole point of Scooby-Doo is that the monsters aren't real! I don't know what sort of mindless loser came up with the plot for Zombie Island and other assorted stupidities, but the point of the show (besides the comedy) has gone totally over their heads.


Wow, look at me, I'm getting all worked up over a cartoon. I guess I could just not watch CN, just like how I don't watch all the other TV channels besides C-SPAN and the International channel. Hey, can't hurt to try...

'very few people get Boomerang'

Funny - in Britain, Boomerang is the only Cartoon Network channel that's available gratis, so many more people get it than their other channels. It doesn't run very much advertising either, so I wonder what their reason is. Perhaps to act as an advertisement for the other CN channels.

Scooby Doo is on WAY too much as it is, especially late at night, when they could easily be playing bad 70's Hanna-Barbara action shows (original Space Ghost! Superfriends!) vs bad Hanna-Barbara comedy..

If I see Scooby Doo Meets Don Knotts or Scooby Doo Meets Sonny & Cher or Scooby Doo Meets Jesus on at 3am again I'm likely to commit mass murder...

New DBZ (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3134969)

If you haven't followed the Dragonball Z series I suggest you check out a few episodes. The only complaint I have is that Toonami replays episodes out of order and all the episodes are cut. It is better to buy the DVDs. At least they are going to finish the Majin Buu saga.

Re:New DBZ (1)

GigsVT (208848) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135062)

I don't know, watching people stare at each other for 5 minutes at a time (a cheesy way to get out of animating very many frames), with sporadic voice over "thoughs" isn't my idea of entertainment.

Re:New DBZ (2, Interesting)

JonWan (456212) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135135)

Watch DBZ on the International Channel it's un-cut and in japanese (sorry no subtitles). It's a lot more fun, and you haven't laughed until you see Master Roshi defeat a giant dragon with a equally giant fart! They just cut too much and ruin the jokes in the US version. IC is also showing Slayers (subbed) after DBZ. If you like J-pop you can catch HEY HEY HEY Music Champ just gefore DBZ.

Re:New DBZ (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3135170)

DBZ is utter trash. It is absolutely horrible, and most of its fan base consists of 12 year old boys and others who haven't yet realized they aren't 12 year old boys. It has no plot, horrible dialogue, and the fight choreography is so boring and repetitive that one fight will often take 5 episodes to be "complete" despite absolutely nothing actually happening in the fight. It is trash. It has little humorous value, no philosophical value, and is an example of how NOT to create anime. DBZ is the Power Rangers of anime.

Re:New DBZ (1)

JonWan (456212) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135200)

Finish the Majin buu saga? (2)

kesuki (321456) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135257)

I don't think 54 episodes are enough to finish the majin buu saga.. they left off at episode 221(235j) and episode ?257(271j) Majin buu is still around and pretty powerful.
From what I understand the Buu saga goes all the way to episode 291j of DBZ after which DBGT takes over after the saga is resolved. But I could be horribly mistaken as I've only seen scattered episodes between 221us and 271j.
If anyone knows for certain where the buu saga it would be helpful. I know i'm going to be watching the new episodes when they come out mmmm... I'm watching the episodes the brought out last season for about the 7th time just because there is nothing better on TV that I know of.

Re:New DBZ (1)

st63z (535955) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135395)

Oh, so the latest ep that CN has is where Vegeta literally exploded and zapped Buu into little pieces? No wonder, I've seen that ep cycled into rotation THREE times, but have never caught the follow-up ep (even though CN ran the "next-week blurb" for it). Argh, it was so frustrating... On an off-topic, I've also been enjoying discovering the original DB in re-runs now, it's just a cute, fun way to waste 30mins...

sam_handelman (519767) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135014)

I only bring this up because I woke up this morning to four hours of fresh anime that had arrived overnight. I have more of it than I have time or inclination to watch.

I can get all the cartoons I want by p2p. In the case of "the Simpsons", I can see a new episode sooner if I turn on the boob tube (well, my tuner card, anyway) but I already see most of these toons (the ones I actually want to watch) subtitled by fans long before cartoon network gets around to rebroadcasting them sans anything raunchy and with lousy voice talent.

It isn't even that much trouble - taken as a total, turning on whatever software and running it overnight is less time than I would spend watching commercials if I watched them on TV. Why would I ever?

Seriously; what value added does Cartoon Network provide?

I think that US anime is a coal-mine-canary for the whole audio-visual-content industry; which is an appreciable slice of the boysenberry pie which is world economic output. That which is a minor annoyance for dedicated geeks to do today will be routine for any consumer no more than ten years hence. So - are video pirates like me (Yar!) going to appreciably sour the audience for Cartoon Network's anime? Or, is it nothing but good fan recruitment for anime generally?

Hard numbers would sure be nice, if some blessed sould has them - searches on google spit back mostly links to slashdot :)

BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Al Qaeda fighters showed no signs of surrender even as U.S.-led coalition forces dominated much of the high ground in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan, military officials said Friday.

A winter storm obscured the view of allied aircraft bombing runs into the mountains of Paktia province, but bombs shook the ground in the provincial capital Gardez, and the drone of allied aircraft was an almost constant reminder that the weeklong battle was not yet over.

Seriously; what value added does Cartoon Network provide?


It's legal?

I can get all the cartoons I want by p2p. In the case of "the Simpsons", I can see a new episode sooner if I turn on the boob tube (well, my tuner card, anyway) but I already see most of these toons (the ones I actually want to watch) subtitled by fans long before cartoon network gets around to rebroadcasting them sans anything raunchy and with lousy voice talent.


It isn't even that much trouble - taken as a total, turning on whatever software and running it overnight is less time than I would spend watching commercials if I watched them on TV. Why would I ever?

Seriously; what value added does Cartoon Network provide?

There is more to Cartoon Network than anime. Space Ghost, Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, etc., etc... all of them are Cartoon Network originals. Your tastes may differ, but these are all fairly high quality shows, particularly the first 3, and none of them would exist w/o Cartoon Network. I think that qualifies as value added. Note that I'm not against anime, I just personally don't give a rat's flea-bitten ass about it. Also, I find that there's something about kicking back on the couch with a beer and watching a real TV that watching an MPEG or DivX on the computer just doesn't provide. YMMV, tho...

Other Cartoon Network Programs are nice, but... (1)

sam_handelman (519767) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135414)

Space Ghost episodes don't circulate for months on the internet before cartoon network airs them.

In any case, 90% of what CN broadcasts are reruns; I'm sure that viewership of reruns is where cartoon network gets most of its ad revenue - even for CN original programming. Space Ghost and Dexter's Lab, although available from Kazaa, haven't yet reached the penetrance of Tenchi Muyo, so I'm not tempted to just watch downloaded versions instead.

Obviously, to the extent that people have a fetishistic preference for television over downloaded viewing, that will provide a boost to TV even should the computer read your mind and fetch whatever you want to watch days before you know you want to see it.

Personally, however, p2p really has damped my interest in CN anime offerings - pretty much completely. For shows that I like but don't feel the need to watch as soon as they're newly broadcast - Space Ghost is a prime example - I'd prefer p2p as well, if they were widely available. I think this is a trend.

re: value added-
CN's editing - I prefer no editing at all - is "value added", if you like it. Services that CN does for society generally by broadcasting anime don't count as value added because they don't enrich the experience at the particular time that I watch the anime. To the extent that my friends might watch the same episode, whereupon we have something to talk about, I suppose that that qualifies as value added. I don't think that it is going to compete with p2p as technology improves, suffice to say.

Legal = value added? I'll just disagree philosophically. Sticking it to the man = value added ;)

That's probably true about the reruns, but I think it has as much to do with the format as anything else. Given the number/frequency of CN shows they run, it's not surprising that they're going to run low on content. Animation is more time-intensive to create than the average syndicated sitcom after all. "Very few cartoons are done live, Mr. Simpson. It puts a terrible strain on the animators." :)

I think this is a trend.

I think you're right, but what you're really talking about is video (or content) on demand. p2p is just one possible mechanism for delivering it (although right now it is one of the most attractive). Tivo is a step in this direction too. Obviously, it's going to be much more attractive to watch what you want to watch when you want to watch it than to be tied to static content decided on by broadcast execs. The real question is who is going to control what is made available. The attraction of p2p over the other delivery mechanisms available right now is that it puts this control in the hands of the end user.

The value CN adds is getting the next generation of anime addicts hooked early. I was hooked on anime at an early age from TV and never knew it was anime until I rediscovered anime later.
Yes, you can get anime on P2P but in my experience noone ever has enough slots or bandwith. It takes me about 3 hours to find one poor quality anime when I'm looking for a specific episode. Which is why I Don't bother with p2p except when I'm depsperate.
CN I don't have to put any effort into watching it, if you buy anime, download it, or rent it it takes a higher cost in energy than switching on the TV.
There aren't any hard numbers, but every anime fan I've ever met either had started liking the stuff young from TV or else picked up the habit from a roommate or Signifigant Other. So without seeding the next generation there won't be anyone to convice roommates or SOs into watching anime.
Since CN has been doing the best editing of any production company translating into english for TV they're doing a big service. Unfortunately they aren't going to keep on editing shows in-house from the last article about CN I read. A real shame if they end up cutting more scenes because the producer doesn't want to paint bikini's on the characters etc.

You didn't specify, but I'll assume you're talking about the English Dub. I have the 1st DVD and have watched it in English and Japanese the English version is about average IMHO. I have over 500 anime videos a good mix of subbed and dubbed and if you watch the older stuff and compare it to the anime now you can tell the dubs are getting better the production companys are trying, but sometimes they screw up pretty bad. For the most part they do a fairly good job, when they do screw up you can bet they here of it.

"These are very well-trained fighters," U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday. "These are dead-enders. These are hard-line types."

A winter storm obscured the view of allied aircraft bombing runs into the mountains of Paktia province, but bombs shook the ground in the provincial capital Gardez, and the drone of allied aircraft was an almost constant reminder that the weeklong battle was not yet over.

So You Want To Watch "Cartoons" eh? (4, Interesting)

Enonu (129798) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135149)

If you don't mind the mindless, censored, cut for commercials crap they show on TV networks, fine. However if you want something of a bit higher quality, then I suggest trying anime:

1. Start researching anime on the Internet, find something to your taste, and give it a try. I suggest any Miyazaki flic for starters.

2. After that find a local anime club. Chances are that they have a nice video collection that you can check out for *FREE*. You'll also be introduced to every aspect of anime, and you'll know what to look for now.

3. Now you've probably noticed that fansubbed anime is quite nice in that you get to see material you would probably NEVER EVER SEE IN YOUR NATURAL LIFE. Start buying tapes from distributors.

4. IRC has numerous channels dedicated to anime and "digisubbing." I suggest you check them out.

5. www.streamload.com is a media trading service that has HUGE amounts of bandwidth. People trade anime collections now that are monstrously huge (over 1TB). Search for streamload trade forums on Google.

6. Go to Manga and Anime conventions.

If you get to this point, I doubt you'll ever turn back.

Re:So You Want To Watch "Cartoons" eh? (1)

Fishstick (150821) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135378)

Samurai Jack has been a pleasant surprise. My kids watch Dexter & PowerPuff and most of the rest of the CN lineup -- I can take most of it or leave it.

Not so with Jack. I've really gotten into it. I think it is probably the best series produced on CN yet. I was surprised to find out it's produced by the same guy who does Dexter (Gennedy Tartovsky), although now that I know I see some similarities in character design and animation style.

What if you dislike cartoons where the dialog stinks and is delivered poorly? What if you don't like sexism? What if you don't like every cartoon to be drawn in the same general style? What if you saw an episode of the new Transformers where it is done in an anime style and it is the biggest pile of CRAP you have ever laid eyes on? What if you think Adult Swim (before cowboy bebop) and the Powerpuff Girls are great?

What makes the movies you like inherently superior? (Clue: they aren't.)

What if I don't want to "learn" how to enjoy a cartoon genre, anime or not?

That's great that you like anime and all, but get over it.

Of course, that's because at this point you'll be unable to interact with the rest of society, rather than because of any inherent quality of anime.

Are the only ones I really like. Does any one remember OverCat from Underdog? He was the evil cat that lived in the heavens and would pound his fist saying "I want my milk!". I really like the old cartoons because they had appeal for adults too. There are a lot of things in those old cartoons that would go right over the head of a child or even teenager. The Simpsons are the penultimate example of that. Have fun tooning!

Anyone else miss the classic cartoons that just aren't on tv very much anymore. I personally thought Garfield was the coolest show along with the Loony Toons and all those. Now all the cartoons are crazy half anime techno thrillers. Just doesn't appeal to me like Willey Coyote and RoadRunner.

Adult Swim should air this Anime... (2)

MsGeek (162936) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135289)

...Serial Experiments Lain. Considering it's another Pioneer title and CN and Pioneer seem to have a symbiotic relationship now, it's a natural. There is only one theoretically objectionable reference in the entire mini-series, and that's a reference to masturbation that can easily be excised and is not germane to the plot.

C'mon, CN...DO IT! Rev up Protocol Seven and link Adult Swim to THE WIRED!!!!

Re:Adult Swim should air this Anime... (0)

Well this looks worse then pokémon. The official web site [hamtaro.com] has some plot synopsis and pictures. I almost went into shock from the glucose level. I suppose I should give it a chance(I nearly turned off YuYu during the opening credits they where so terrible, but found myself liking the show anyway) maybe there is some kind of hilarious subplot to follow, but I somehow doubt it.

On the topic of space ghost and new episodes, I don't think that they have updated there page in a while but may have filmed a new episode(or two). I refer specifically to the episode featuring Tenacious D(yogi bear as satan is perhaps the funniest thing I have ever seen) and the old kentucky shark episode with the directors commentary over it. But these could just be old ones I had not seen before.

CN sucks (1, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3135353)

I've tried watching the cartoon network a number of times but I have never ever found anything even remotely entertaining. Just a bunch of crap like "Dragon Ball Z" or other "anime" geared toward four year old children. Scooby-Doo, a bunch of stupid "let's say stupid things and scream a whole bunch and we'll have a show!" stuff like Cat and Dog or whatever that is. Cow and Chicken. Maybe that's it. Or CHicken and Cat.. I dunno.

Anyway, I've yet to find anything worth watching on this station and don't plan to ever watch it. I think the last time I turned to that channel was about 9 months ago when I watched 5 minutes of some really stupid cartoon.

To find good cartoons, you have to watch the Action Movie channel late at night when they run good anime movies a few times per week.

No new Dexter or Big O? (1)

st63z (535955) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135499)

Has Genndy's excellent Dexter's Laboratory been cancelled? What, low ratings, or not enough resources to share with PowerPuff and Samurai Jack? It already sucks that they recently changed most of the voice actors and animators (why was that anyway?), sheesh... Also, will there be any new production of Big O from Japan (besides the meager 13 eps in existence)? Bebop's excellent, but from what I hear the end is quite final. Outlaw Star's also had a pretty good run. But Big O definitely needs more eps to flesh out the backstory and too see more interactions among the characters and such. The last ep left you excited and wanting to see more!

Re:No new Dexter or Big O? (1)

anball (555994) | more than 12 years ago | (#3135685)

I was also eager to see new episodes of BIG O, but from what I've read, there isn't a plan for creating new ones. I guess not enough people were into BIG O and CN decided to pull it. It's really too bad...
