people got up in a arms over a schedule that would have only worked for 6 or so weeks? i cant even
1.) How were we suppose to know it would last that long

2.) They haven't confirmed if they're even shuffling the schedule that much, for all we know, it's just placed at midnight & then everything after just gets bumped back a half hour, making it very similar to the current schedule.

That does raise the question of if they'll keep the rerun slot or just get rid of it and make HxH the last show of the night. Considering DeMarco stated that people don't tend to watch the block before 11, I feel like we're not getting an expansion anytime soon.

Spring/Summer is gonna be a huge shake up for the block:

May 25th: Attack on Titan Season Three Part Two Episode One
June 15th: Jojo Part 4's replacement
June 29th: HxH's replacement
July 6th (assuming it's not a 4th of July marathon): Promised Neverland's replacement
July 20th: SAO's replacement

In the span of 2 months, we're getting FIVE new shows.

How long before JoJo Part 5 joins the block?
It might happen near the end of the year, but considering by the time Part 4 ends, Part 5 in Japan will still have a few more episodes to go & considering how Viz is only now basically finishing up the dub for Part 4, we're most likely not getting it right after Part 4 ends. So my guess is Fall/Winter 2019 or early 2020.

I can wait, it’ll be nice to experience Part 5 again dubbed.

One Piece is still great. A couple of post timeskip arcs are better digested in chunks i think but none of them have been bad imo. Plus we just got done with a top 5 arc with probably Luffy's best fight in the series and the current arc has tons of promise itself

is one piece still good? genuine question, like, the current manga stuff
The manga is good. The last major arc (Whole Cake Island) was unique and interesting and the one before that (Zou) was awesome. The current arc (Wano) is decent but I'm not really into the location personally.

The anime however has gone down in quality a lot. It just looks bad all around. Toei should ditch the current showrunners and lead animators and bring back the style they had back when they were animating pre timeskip.

Following up from the hint they were dropping over the weekend, Funimation will be dubbing Nichijou.
*chucks $50 sub-only blu-ray into trash* GUESS THIS IS WORTHLESS NOW.

Seriously, I love the series, but with my budget, I don't want to buy the show a SECOND time just to hear it dubbed, thus owning two copies of the same show with my sub-only version being basically useless if I get this new release. Unless they put it up on their streaming service, but there's also no legal way to watch the series subbed.

Edit: Funimation actually has the series subbed on their site, the first two episodes free with the rest behind their pay wall. So there is now finally a legal way to stream it.

Well if you got a sub to their service, they typically upload all the episodes the same day the home video releases so you could always just stream the dubbed version.

I just checked, they actually have the sub available for streaming, though everything after episode 2 is behind a pay wall. On the one hand, there's FINALLY a legal way to stream it, which is nice considering how Crunchyroll took the series down a few years ago. But I'm still paying either way when I own the series legit on Blu-ray because it was one of the few times I bought a home release to support it. I mean, I guess sales were good enough to warrant spending the time & money on a dub.

I might actually make a topic about this in Etc.

Also, just as a reminder, the anime first premiered in April 2011. 8 years ago.
 
So when does Adult Swim lose Family Guy and all the others fox shows again?

Has there been any announcements for replacements for the shows yet either?
I wonder how they're going to dub this scene.




Pretty sure Turner stations losing Family Guy is only a rumor now. It could certainly happen but nothing is concrete now.
F/X secured the broadcasting rights from Season 15-onwards I believe I think Time Warner still technically got the rights to Seasons 1-15 for the next couple of years.
