Toonami's.... newest 'makeover'...

R.Smith 03-18-2007 05:50 PM
The sun has risen on a world without Toonami


I knew something was up, as they had a date on one of their bumpers that I randomly caught... but this....... this is awful! Dead

Lost all the 'edge' they gained in the past years in one brief idiotic decision. Sweatdrop


Granted I don't watch it too much these days, but still this is really a move in the wrong direction. Thumbs Down



Maybe writing to CN about their horrid choice will get us the 'edgy' TOM back...maybe.

What......the HELL was that?

...um, I didn't know Toonami was still around. At least R.Smith still is though.
Peace.

That's not Tom!!!!

I don't mind giving the robots emotions, and the setting was alright, but why do they look like Thomas the Tank Engine, seriousky.

Oh well, he's a robot that introduces NARUTO, so I guess he WOULD look retarded.

Umm... they actually don't. I'm not totally suprised people assumed that, but aside from the face of Tom being grey... there is no other similarity (not even physically).

Giving Tom a face....is just wrong... he was more badass with the helmet.

Uh, Thomas has a circular grey head inside a metal body. It's not copyright infringement but it IS close enough for masses to go "WTF THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE?!"

That's why I said "I'm not suprised that's what they assumed" Tongue lol

I'm just one of the few that didn't say "omg it's TtTE!" the moment he saw it. What I said when I saw was "my god that doesn't look right on Tom". heh

I say, if this is how things are going to be, get rid of TOM entirely.

Let's have Moltar back.
Seihou 03-18-2007 08:43 PM
Argh! Toonami! Gone! Let's just pray that passing remark about Outlaw Star will spur something to get it back on TV... please?

Yeah, that's the first thing I thought.

"Screw this CG crap, where's Moltar?"

He looks like somthing from a cheap robot game. One that only lasted two days and only three people knew about. The creators lost 20 thousend dollars and kill them selves... all because there main charcter looks the way it does.

Is that what you wanted?

Apparently children like being ordered around by cold, unfeeling automotons.

It's supossed to feed the mordern dream of the future. Since all dream of the future. It is only natural. It's a good mascot though. And Tom isn't lifeless...

But the old Tom was cool... WAIT! Bring back Moltar!

Honestly I didn't realize they still had Toonami on there... I thought they replaced it with "Miguzi" or whatever it was called, and all those TV shows about anthropomorphic monkeys. Then again I stopped watching Toonami back when an ad of their's called DBZ the best action cartoon on the planet... What do they even show nowadays? I remember back in the day they had uncut Gundam Wing for a while.... good times...
