Just a fast question: What is the difference between anime and manga?

Manga are the equivalent of western comics but usually only printed in black and white, anime are animated cartoons.

Shouldn't this be a common knowledge by now?

I don't think it would be the end as much as it's a restructuring. Considering that the 11:30 to 6am model was largely unwieldy considering that they had Batman, Samurai Jack and repeats of Cowboy Bebop and Bleach, they were basically trimming off the proverbial fat that most people weren't going to watch again.

It's not the Midnight Run from way back when, but you kind of have to take what you could get with anime on TV. (Now if we can only get Syfy to bring back their anime block again, but I'm not going to hold out for that)

Thank you for the answer. It was first clear, but then got very unclear. It became unclear because:

On the internet everyone use the word anime. Even for comics. It is different what I hear people say. I think I have never heard the word anime. People use the word manga when talking instead. To movies too.

So if what you wrote is true, then the knowledge about the difference between manga and anime is not common at all.

Ah, yes. I remember Ani-Monday. I should have known it was a bad sign when SyFy shifted that program block to Tuesdays after just one year.

I also have fond memories of International Channel, which became AZN Television. It's the only channel I know that ran subbed anime, and I believe I saw Dragon Ball GT in Japanese unsubbed.

Then there's the Anime Network, which used to run 24/7 on certain cable providers, but stopped just as I switched my cable to a company that had the channel.

IIRC, the last major series that they aired before they ended up resorting to motion comics was Monster, and then it soon moved to Thursday nights, which was the final nail in that coffin. As I said before, I can't imagine that they'll revive that block again, but stranger things have happened.

Then there's the Anime Network, which used to run 24/7 on certain cable providers, but stopped just as I switched my cable to a company that had the channel.

Honestly, I didn't think that was still around today. Out of curiousity, which cable providers have the Anime Network now?

Absolute Duo, Tokyo Ghoul √A (Season 2), Isuca, Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, and Aldnoah.Zero (Season 2) are 2015 anime series I've been watching so far. They're pretty good. ^-^

I think it shows they favor quality over quantity. Toonami trimmed their line-up of shows that have had full runs recently and were airing repeats.
It seems Toonami will soon air Sword Art Online II, most likely as a replacement for Gurren Lagaan, which wraps up in a few weeks.

Will be nice to see if SAO 2 will be the same or better than the original.

I started watching Watamote and it might be the funniest TV show I've ever seen.

Getting real Peep Show vibes from it.

I'm currently catching up on Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, this show is the epitome of manliness.

Feel free but this club doesn't do that anymore.

We're treating this a discussion thread so you can come and go if you want as long you have something related to contribute. I mean I never joined in the first place, just that I would pop in once in a while to have a discussion in this thread when it comes to what we have been watching.

Finished it off today. Watched a lot of it through my fingers, some genuinely painful stuff in there.

Didn't enjoy the last 1/3 or so of the series as much as the earlier stuff because it just gets so fucking depressing.

Picked up these on my way home from work today, so that's my weekend sorted.

The one thing that I don't get about this genre is all of the hate that it gets and the accusations that they are "ruining" anime. Granted not a lot of them are special or anything like that, but there is no harm in watching buxom/lolicon/crossdressing girls showing skin now and again. Not to mention that they're more or less following Go Nagai's footsteps anyway, and he's a legend for extreme content {and Mazinger Z}

High School DxD easily is my favorite of the bunch, as it actually has a MC who enjoys being in a harem with women {and Kiba} that don't view him as a piece of meat, mostly at least, and it's actually refreshing to see everyone in the story approve of Issei's perverted behavior.

I like it too but it gets dragged out so much. It's not until the end of Season 2 that Lucifer realizes that Issei's "power source" is his feelings for these women, which cracks me up. If only I could get strong and powerful thinking about having sex with different girls, I'd be ultra successful by now.

Just wondering, are you going to watch the new season of High School DxD that's coming out in April?

I pretty much already know everything that's going to happen in the new season. I've read the light novel and gone ahead, but that's still not as great as seeing it animated.

I agree, there should be more pictures. At least we got to see what Rossweisse looks like and she looked great in the anime trailer for the third season.
