Adult Swim Revives Samurai Jack As Network Courts Linear, Online Viewers

Adult Swim wants to cut a new swath through its audience.

The Time Warner-owned cable programmer that tilts toward millennial viewers and younger generations with animated fare shown in primetime and overnights, said it would release more original programming via streaming video for daytime viewing as part of an effort to spur its audience to increase consumption of its oddball but cult-favorite content.

The outlet ” simply knows its audience,” said Christina Miller, president and general manager, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang, in a prepared statement.

As part of its slate of programs, expected to be cited next week during a presentation by Time Warner’s Turner unit, Adult Swim will unveil its revival of “Samurai Jack,” the former Cartoon Network series that has not produced an original episode since 2004. Original creator and executive producer Genndy Tartakovsky will continue the epic story of a young prince from feudal Japan vies

Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt (2010)

  • Planet Fury
Once in a great while a groundbreaking work of art reveals itself, each often revolutionizing the way art is interpreted.

It can come in a variety of different forms, such as Di Vinci’s Mona Lisa or Van Gogh’s Starry Night, to Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby or Orwell’s 1984, to even Hideaki Anno’s Neon Genesis Evangelion. We can easily agree that all of these are very unique to one another in their own right, yet all are great pieces of art expressing ideas and emotions beyond belief. Artists aren’t afraid to cross lines or push boundaries for the sake of their work, and they must throw larger stones to make bigger splashes. Sometimes brilliance comes from very unexpected places. In 2010, a new masterpiece was unveiled in the form of a gag anime by the name of Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt.

Diebuster review

I don't do much anime series and Oav reviews, but once in a while I'd like to hint at some of the missed out modern "classics". Diebuster fits that description rather well.

Diebuster is the Oav sequel based on Hideaki Anno's original Gunbuster series. Considering the impact of the original it's hard to image how incredibly overlooked this 6-part Oav follow-up series is. Tsurumaki is the one bringing the 15-year old original back to modern standards, completely in the spirit of Gainax, and doing a pretty great job at that.

Gunbuster is the series that kick-started Anno's career. An important event in the history of anime, as he would later go on to direct Evangelion. At the same time, it marks the rise of legendary anime studio Gainax. The original is a series that still stands its ground today, but is somewhat unknown among younger anime fans.

FUNimation announces Flcl (Fooly Cooly) on Blu-ray Disc for 2010

Us anime-market leader FUNimation is currently having a “roll-out riot” and is announcing more and more titles for the upcoming months. Yesterday they announced the Us release of Kamui Gaiden and RoboGeisha on their official blog, but without mentioning a specific date or medium.

Today, after some rumbling of disappointed fans who expected more fine animation from Japan, they surprised them by announcing the acquirement of the Ova series Flcl (Fooly Cooly) for a DVD and Blu-ray Disc release in late 2010. The series was produced by Production I.G, Gainax and Starchild in 2000 and was directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki (Gunbuster, Rebuild of Evangelion 1.0 & 2.0).

Because of the way the six episodes of Flcl were produced, this will most likely be another upscale, so looking at FUNimation’s recent releases I’ll wait for proper reviews before ordering this…even thou I don’t own the series on DVD yet.
