Too bad [adult swim] lost the licensing to Case Closed
they can't show it anymore
Funimation took the licensing so they can put it in there own channel which is called the Funimation Channel

http://www.funimationchannel.com/​

visit there website

if you live in LA or have Dish Network hey there is good news on that website

also if you look at the [adult swim] website and look at the shows they don't have Case Closed anymore


And, this is where I found it:

Yay, I just learned why they took it off AS (because I didn't already know, myself)! Anyway, yeah, I hope that helps. Very Happy

Why not use Google or Amazon and do your own research? These forums are not for getting people to help you be lazy.

Uh, no, they cancelled it because of bad ratings.

Why do you constantly make stuff up about CN? First you claimed that Jetstream was putting new episodes up late (when it hadn't even been up for a week) and now you're making lies about Kim Manning cancelling shows she doesn't like. Just where are you getting your information from? TV Tome? Don't trust them. They just get their info from random idiots, just like IMDb.

Actually this poster is regurgitating some OP/ED stuff on the subject.

While the ratings weren't great for Case Closed they weren't as bad as many seem to think they were. While the show wasn't a hit its ratings were similar to many shows that are currently running on Adult Swim these days. What the ratings weren't doing was pulling in the right demographic. Adult Swim wants 17 - 35 year old males and CC was getting younger and older audience for the show.

Now Kim Manning did say she wasn't fond of Case Closed at the time(the posts in question are long gone, however). She wasn't the programmer to buy the show and I thought it was clear from what she said at the time that she didn't put her full support into the show. That of course didn't mean she canceled it. Instead what she did was not advertise the show as much as she might have and when the time came to pick more episodes up she passed.

Was that a good or bad move on her part? Well it's hard to say IMO. The truth is that the show probably was never going to be a standout hit like FMA and seeing the show is over 400+ episodes long, letting it go was probably the right move - particuarly if she didn't strongly support the show.

Anyway, I find this argument moot these days because FUNImation has managed to get Case Closed back on the air, both in syndication (in Los Angeles), as well as on Colours (a Direct TV network). FUNI also put out the next two "seasons" of the show on DVD and are now putting out the Cartoon Network episodes. So Case Closed isn't a dead show - instead it lives on in other forms that just don't include Adult Swim and fans should keep that in mind and try and be happy about it Smile.

First, I´m sorry but yoúr spelling makes my brain hurt.

Second, Case Closed had more than 1 run. The show changed time slots a couple of times. Before it was taken off the air, it even got the 2.30am Pacific/5.30am Eastern time slot, I remember cause I used to stay up to watch it.

I like this show ALOT. But I still don't think it had a rightful place on the Adult Swim lineup to begin with. More or less it's a children's show. The only reason why it was on Adult Swim was because it was to do with murder, and there is usually some blood (often used as a clue of somesort). But anyways, that's just proof of how anal rententive mothers' of America ruin good shows for kids, and force them to air late at night.

Clues yes, but other than that, I think it's just to show how gruesomely they were killed Twisted Evil
