1) Adult Swim has announced the return of Toonami
- the old anime block. I am of mixed opinions. I *really* love anime so more anime is good in my book. However - the lineup they've announced is... the same lineup they have been running for ages, with no news shows joining the mix. Now their line up is all the really good stuff, for the most part, with Bleach being the weakest. But the fact they they are non-committed to bring anything but their proven titles that they already have the rights to is kind of irksome.
2) AS also announced that they are making their own homegrown anime series
to be announced later. This also leaves me dubious. While they did make shows like Boondocks (Don't care for but appreciate it for the market it was aimed at). They mostly create wonders that are... ugh - do I even have to go there? I fear for what they think their "original" anime should be....
3) In complete resurrection from the grave, Mysterious Cities of is getting a 2nd season/sequel
. Ya really! Talk about out-of-the-blue!
Oh - and if you haven't seen it yet - for a limited time Disney XD has Tron:Uprising ep.1
