adult hero

Here’s the Cartoon Network and [adult swim] schedule for Monday 11 September to Sunday 17 September.

ADVENTURE TIME IS BACK WITH NEW EPISODES AND A NEW (and final) SEASON!! It’s so good to see the show on the schedule again since July!

Next week’s Ben 10: Alien of the Week will be Four Arms. It doesn’t say it on Zap2it, yet. But it did say it on TV Guide.

It looks like they’ll be airing Over the Garden Wall again (but only 8 of the 10 episodes will be shown, so it won’t be very consistent.) Why, you may ask? Because Autumn is coming right up, of course!

So, The Powerpuff Girls (2016) will have a 5-episode special called Power of Four. There will be a 5th 4th Powerpuff Girl. (definitely NOT Bunny) And she looks like a self-insert from some grown man’s creepy fanfiction! (see promo images and a screencap, taken from CN RSEE highlight reel, below)

UPDATE: Her name is “Bliss” and the special already aired in Africa months ago in the Summer.

It looks like they might be airing Classic Tom and Jerry at 10am weekdays after Tom and Jerry Tales. All swimming under the “Sea of Yellow.”

Infomercials are back, while 2 extra Aqua Teen Hunger Force episodes, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, Stroker & Hoop, The Venture Brothers, and Tom Goes to the Mayor are next week’s 16th Anniversary [adult swim] shows.

I mentioned in that earlier post I made about Yuuri being a unique protagonist in a field of teenage prodigy protagonists in anime, and then just hours later we get an interview where Sayo went on about how people she took the project to wanted her to make it about teens, make it about a high school club, etc., but she wouldn’t do that even though those shows have been successful. 

She stuck to her vision that Yuuri Katsuki is the protagonist this show needs; that it needed this atypical unique approach not of a an athlete just getting started on a school level, or a teen prodigy on the highest level (which there are also plenty anime of), but an adult hero who has been at it for a while but is longing to achieve the success they’ve been aiming for (who, despite their immense talent, has been hindered along the way by one of the most realistic antagonists of all; their own mind). And it’s part of what makes the show great, and no it wouldn’t be near what it is if they’d gone with another protagonist. 

What i find great about UA having the students live there is that it means SOMEONE is gonna have to teach them how to do normal everyday stuff. Aizawa teaching them how to use coupons after school and taking some grocery shopping, All Might showing them how to drive if they don’t already know, Mic teaching students to cook things besides microwavable foods, it just means all the teachers will essentially have to take up a sort-of parental role and i love it
