I wonder if CN will ever bring back the city era. That was my childhood and I miss it a lot. That and Cartoon Network Fridays.

Still haven't watched this series, but I've seen some clips and the show seems to be prime not for just Toonami, but Adult Swim in general.

I feel like it would have been better if they put it on [adult swim] comedy rather than Toonami. Or at least have reruns at 4 in the morning and confuse the fuck out of people like Too Many Cooks.

It is Japanese anime, so it's most likely needed to be put into Toonami.

IMO, The ADV gag dub of Ghost Stories some Discord user showed me is pretty acceptable on Adult Swim. C'mon, Williams Street once dubbed Crayon Shin-chan.

There honestly isn't any reason why anybody should watch Toonami in 2018. You can just watch it on the web in HD on Kissanime. However, I did watch Samurai Jack Season 5 when it was new on Toonami. Other than that, Toonami needs to offer something that the internet can't. What that something is I have no idea.

...There's no reason to use illegal streaming sites unless the show is behind a double paywall (or not legally available, out of print, licensed by Aniplex, etc), either. 

 

And even then you should be torrenting it.

illegal or not. Doesn't matter. Toonami's target audience are people who watch anime and a majority of them use the internet to watch anime. I doubt any anime fans watch their anime only on Toonami.

I both stream anime and watch Toonami for anime I wouldn't normally watch (would have never given hunterxhunter a go, for instance). 

 

Illegally streaming is just bad. If you absolutely have to pirate anime (hell knows I do if I want to watch Digimon in Japanese), torrent it. Don't give pirates ad money.

 

What matters most is merch sales, however. If you like a show, buy the merch first party, even if it's a little blind box keychain. Every bit helps.

Streaming and piracy aren't the same thing. I'm not saying to pirate anime (I don't pirate) but streaming it is a lot more convenient. Streaming is watching a video online.  You don't create a copy when you stream a movie, cartoon or anime. So by definition it can't be copyright infringement. Thus not piracy. 

Toonami basically doesn't serve a purpose anymore.

Well, then you have long series like One Piece, Naruto, etc; if you don't want to watch the legal version (One Piece's legal rights seem to be topsy turvy these days and I think you need a subscription to either Funimation or Crunchyroll to watch them and fuck that noise), torrenting every new episode seems unfeasible. In that case, I'm fine with streaming on other sites.

I mean I get that watching anime on sites like kissanime is not a good way to support anime. If you want to support the anime you like, buy the Blu-ray seasons or purchase merchandise. Anime is expensive to make. It also takes a long time especially if it's a high budget.

Just don't watch with ads on, and if it forces you to turn adblock off, find another site.

Toonami provides an experience more than anything at this point, the nostalgia factor has run dry now but there were tons of people who were exited to be able to watch anime on TV with this presentation/format again back when it was rebooted. Besides that they have aired shows before Japan like Space Dandy and FLCL. If you have to wait for streams/torrents to go up when it already aired on TV then that's a point towards Toonami. Also I don't really get trying to put torrents above streaming, both don't support the series, and also torrent sites/programs with ads are a thing just like ads on streaming sites. 

AND you can watch One Piece for free on Crunchyroll, it's standard definition with ads, but it's there.

edit: i thought this was the anime thread for a bit there

I'm pretty sure the fact that people are watching anime on Toonami justifies its existence.

Yes, the block, especially Dragonball Super, actually gets really great ratings for [as]. DBS is usually the second highest rated show on all of television for Saturday.
 

They've also got dub premiers going for them. The HunterxHunter blu-rays are very far behind the Toonami broadcast.

What time does Super air?

I might consider watching it live (I tend to watch it on pirate stream sites shortly after the fact), but I don't know if I even have cable. My parents do so I could piggy back off them for streaming purposes, but I'm pretty sure my TV has no actual TV going into it.
