Rest in peace. This guy evidently helped me get into a lot of different anime.



Also, it definitely shows how long it's been since I've had TV/cable since I had no idea we ever got Adult Swim or Cartoon Network up here.

R.I.P. Mr. Rooney

Although I still believe the decision to have CN and Adult Swim in Canada was fruitless. Canada had long missed the boat on both networks.

Not only that, but [adult swim] is a 24/7 channel of its own in Canada (as of 2019, there is literally no more segmentation among specialty cable channels in Canada; channels pretty much show the same content for its demographic audience around the clock).
