My Thoughts on the “New” Adult Swim/Toonami Shows
For those of you who don’t know, the Adult Swim website has two new shows listed for its zombie Toonami block that starts this Saturday.
The shows are…..
Overall, I am excited. While I have seen Deadman Wonderland, and honestly didn’t enjoy it -that- much, I wouldn’t mind watching it again for the super hawt warden chick.
There were some other characters that were pretty good, even if they were underused. I have heard that the manga is better than the anime, so maybe I’ll pick that up if my rewatch makes me want to know more.
I would recommend Deadman Wonderland if you enjoyed The Shawshank Redemption, but thought it would be cooler if the characters fought each other using their blood as weapons like the guy from Speed Grapher.
Also, Crow is a BAMF.
I have not seen Casshern Sins yet, but I have heard good things about it. From what I understand, it is about a robot in a post-terminator world that travels around trying to figure out if he is the one who killed John Conner or not. It is based off of an anime made in the 70′s, and there is also a live action movie out there somewhere. I am a big fan of sci-fi in general, and always enjoy post-apocalyptic stuff, so I definitely will be checking out Casshern Sins if it truly does air on Adult Swim.
The reason I say “truly” is that Adult Swim is known for trolling its audience, and the powers that be did say that the schedule would be kept secret until Saturday, there there is a chance that this schedule is a troll. However, I do think that there are worse shows that could be put on the revived Toonami block, and would welcome Casshern Sins and Deadman Wonderland to my television screen.
Deaman Wonderland starts at 12:30 am EST and Casshern Sins starts at 1:00 am EST on Saturday night/Sunday morning.
I hope to see you there.
