Big O on Adult Swim, Voice Cast and Soundtracks

Krang 07-06-2003 11:30 PM
Just a reminder that the first season of Big O finally returns to TV on Adult Swim beginning tomorrow. It will air Mondays-Thursdays at 12:00 AM Eastern (11:00 PM Central) on Cartoon Network.

Also, I made a few additions and corrections to two of the pages in the Information section. First, I added Alan Gabriel's English and Japanese voices and made a couple of spelling corrections to the Voice Cast page. I also added the Big O Original CD Drama Theater to the Soundtracks page along with track lengths for some of the other soundtracks. Check out the updates using the links above.

How long has it been since Big O was played on Cartoon Networks "Toonami"?

Big O originally aired from April 2, 2001 to April 18, 2001 on Toonami. It then had a second airing in late June/early July of the same year, and another airing on Midnight Run around the same time.

I agree... merely because I lack the funds to buy the DVDs, and I don't think my hard drive can hold many more animes... x.X;

Not that I can actually find any episodes of Big O for download... -.-;

I know the feeling, i have enough anime pics to make an animator cry
Kori_chan 07-08-2003 11:43 PM
Well, I have enough full episodes of animes downloaded on my computer to make an animator sue XD

Have you heard of the Anime Channel, or something like that? I read an article in an Anime magazine that theres a channel on the US East coast that plays anime 24/7. Sadly i dont get it where i live...Frown

'Anime Unleashed' is the Anime block on Tech T.V. it plays things like Silent Mobius, and Betterman; I checked it out its called 'The Anime Network' and it plays all kinds of anime like Samurai X: the Motion Picture, Tekken, Bubbelgum Crisis:Tokyo 2040, and Neon Genesis Evangeloin.

check out its site www.theanimenetwork.com


It looks cool all i have on it is older news nothin' up-to-date but its plan was to to expand the network outword from Philadelphia, and im not sure how that idea worked out... Confused

Anime Unleashed at the moment plays (at 4:30) Crest of the Stars. I forget what it plays at the midnight showing.

This is something from ages and ages ago, but I heard that at one point CN wanted to create a Toonami channel and do away with Boomerang. But this was when Toonami was from 4-6. So that's OLD. But I think CN still wants to try an Anime Channel.

Its doubtful they would, i'd think cartoon network has enough cartoons already, sad enough that they made Boomerang, but to make an anime network too; between the rivalry of Toonami and Adult Swim i'd think they play alot anime already, I'll keep a eye on them though... You never know... and in my book CN is known for doing stupid and akward things, to make another channel for anime alone wouldn't be out of thier character; but still very unlikley

It's run by ADV.It all works out quite well,actually.Haven't you ever wondered why Cartoon Network never picks up any ADV animes?I guess ADV struck up a little deal.So now,if TV anime fans want to check out,say,Evangelion,they have to subscribe to the network.It's all about getting more money,really.They probably feel that they'll lose money from DVD sales if people can see it for free on TV.
