It was only a matter of time. And now I'll finally get to see the end of the show.

I loved Final Act but I really can't remember what was so "bad" to make this a TV-MA rating? It's been a while since I've watched it, can someone remind me?

I'm very excited for this. Good going, Toonami. I wonder what they will do about the hour Hellsing took up? They still have IGPX on the back burner, I suppose. Wouldn't be opposed to that.

Sadly, InuYasha is not one of those highly recommended anime shows because fans of the big 3 tend to needlessly demean it. I think it's better than the big 3.

Which isn't really anymore than the previous season... Although the show did air late night in Japan on the main networks, that had more to do with lack of available slots. There were some affiliates that did air the show in the morning and evening hours, for the record.

They also announced they don't have all 10 episodes of Hellsing Ultimate. Last one they have airs November 8

I wonder if that will be the benchmark for any other show from Viz. It has to be 4 years old before they will pick it up.

To me Inuyasha is a Very good anime, but I do not think it is better than Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop (I am assuming you consider Bebop and Eva as part of the big 3).

They already said that Final Act wasn't on Toonami because they couldn't agree on a price, so I don't think that's the case. I think we'll be seeing newer Viz shows like Project K or Blood Lad sooner than later.

Maybe they finally got a reasonable price.

I saw it when I rented the dub disks from a Hastings a couple of years back. It was, um, 12 more eps of the same, and then a pretty good ending.

Right now I can't watch anything on a Turner channel because of the Turner/Dish network price spat, but that will probably be settled by the time this airs, so I might rewatch, depending on the time it airs.

I thought this show judged on it's own merits like the bad pacing Fillers (two of the big 3 are guilty of those as well) and over all a really boring plot
