The fact that they aren't replaying it the same night somewhat concerns me.

They haven't replayed anything on Saturday night for quite a while now.


I'm interested to see what it is, and I'm hopeful that it'll be something that gets it enough ratings to keep that earlier slot.

It has to be Soul Eater. I can't see them playing FMA/FMA:B or IY/IYTFA simultaneously. And I doubt that the latter two have dubs this soon.

Really? Even brand spanking new premiere night anime? That's pretty odd.

Looking forward to FLCL, FMA, and maybe Inyuasha if its the first season/series, since I've never seen any of the three other than a few minutes of FLCL. So, I'm only halfheartedly looking forward to this. Im not big fan of watching anything televised anymore so hopefully this will change that.

I kinda hope it's not Soul Eater. I think that show could be pretty popular but a midnight it's being sent to die.

SMH @ them still showing Cowboy Bebop and FLCL. I saw those on [as] during my first year in college... which was 2001. Almost ten years later and the line-up is almost 100% the same.

I'd say the chances are:

45% chance - FMA: Brotherhood
45% chance - Inuyasha Final Act
10% chance - Something else

They have to go with the pedigrees.

I guess it's also a very slight chance they'd jump the license (didn't they do that once?) and go with Michiko to Hatchin because of it's stylistic similarities to Bebop and Champloo... although they don't have a good track record with female led animes.

WOW! 2 hours of Bleach, didn't see that coming.

I also hope the "new" anime is either FMA brotherhood, or Soul Eater.

HOWEVER, I'm still upset that adult swim couldn't get Naruto Shippuden, it doesn't make sense.

2 hours of Bleach, looks like they're trying to quickly blow through a rerun to get back up to 167 to start more new episodes. Are they really dubbing the Amagai Arc that fast? More Bleach sooner isn't a bad thing at all.

Yay at anime coming on 30 min earlier too. I wonder what show it'll be.

Bleach flourished last year in the midnight hour.

My money's on FMA: B.

I think its going to be a big prank on everybody, it kind of keeps with AS's needling of anime fans. Then again, it might be something interesting, then relegated to 4:30 in the morning after two weeks.

Did [as] even want it? The primary age groups for NarutoballZ aren't the people who are watching [as]. (The same reason why One Piece, while being a slight possibility, is very likely out of the question.)
