So it's actually SUNDAY I'm going to Waku Waku NYC.
I checked the schedule and it's exactly what I thought. The whole event seems specifically targeted to absolute newcomers to anime, and has a few things typical of Cool Japan not knowing what's "cool" (Chibi Maruko-Chan, wow! How exciting!)... aside from the food. That's the main reason I'll be there. At least Mike Toole will be having a panel there. The Real Escape game seems kinda interesting. I don't even know if they'll have a game room...
I'm agreeing that it would have been better if the revival was for kids like the old Toonami. Adults who are into anime already have streamed most of the shows already, but for most kids something like that is a completely new experience.
Anyway, I haven't even been watching Toonami lately because none of the anime that's currently on interests me besides Michiko & Hatchin, but I've already seen that and own the DVDs. I would love another Space Dandy situation where the Toonami broadcast is the premier.
I still haven't seen Blood Blockade Battlefront yet and I'm actually waiting until it inevitably ends up on Toonami to watch it. It's already been dubbed!
I heard that Parasyte The Maxim will be airing when Shit Art Online Electric Boogaloo finishes, that looks somewhat interesting. IIRC the creators say they want Death Parade on, too, and hell yes I would love that.
