I've realized that a lot of these shows have unexplained ridiculous claims at times, and i have dubbed these moments "anime logic" moments, for example:
-In an episode of Sailor Moon- No one can tell that Serina is Sailor Moon, besides that all that is keeping her secret identity is her tiara. Well why doesnt anyone see its her when see takes it off for an attack?
-In the Cell saga of DBZ, Krillian is forced to choose to blow up 18, but doesnt out of love, well later on, after cell consumes her anyways, Cell also kills thousands of people, and also Trunks... So why did the Dragon Warriors not kill fucking Krillain?
Anyones that you have noticed?
HISTERIA! is a classic cartoon produced by Warner Brothers that was created in 1998 and ran until the year 2001
Description: HISTERIA! was the, "Time Squad" Of the late 90's. Characters from the show would visit different periods of time, to when historical events took place, and then proceed to explain, said events in an entertaining fashion. Most of the time they would explain certain events in song, but other times, classic movies were parodied by historical figures.( An example would be Teddy Roosevelt in a parody of the ghostbusters opening theme song).

I loved this show as a kid for the same reasons i loved freakazoid and the animaniacs, except this show actually taught me things without me even noticing. I think this show could fit into the stream if it was scheduled around the same time as, shows like Freakazoid and animaniacs.
This movie has been criminally overlooked for years. It was abox office failure, but a critical darling. The film was co-written and directed by Brad Bird -- whom also wrote and directed The Incredibles -- one of my favorite directors. The story is basically E.T. with a giant robot instead of an alien, but it is by no means a rip-off. The Iron Giant has always been a favorite of mine, I own it on DVD and video. Please consider it. Not enough people give this movie the credit it deserves.
Plus, after so many anime movies we should start watching a few of the great American animated films as well. Yes, they do exist.
This is the story a nine-year-old boy named Hogarth Hughes who makes friends with an innocent alien giant robot that came from outer space. Meanwhile, a paranoid U.S. Government agent named Kent Mansley arrives in town, determined to destroy the giant at all costs. It's up to Hogarth to protect him by keeping him at Dean McCoppin's place in the junkyard.

Here again to suggest yet another show. I'm suggesting Speed Racer.
This show actually aired on CN for a while back in the 90's. I suggest this show because i think that it would fit incredibley nicely in the Midnight Block, Toonami, or sometime on the weekend. Not replacing anything per say, but maybe just change out when one of the shows has its rotation (looking at you G Gundam).
A young man named Speed Racer wants to become a professional racer, despite the lack of Pops Racer's (his father) approval. When Pops reluctantly quits his job after the corporation he was working for declined production of a modified engine for his new racing car, the Mach 5, he later thinks of creating his own family company, Racer Motors (Mifune Motors in Japan). He realizes that he would need a great amount of money to make his idea work. Nonetheless, Pops conceals his plans for the Mach 5's new engine on a windshield. Speed, who values the welfare of his family, decides to take it upon himself to obtain the money for Pops. In hopes of using his unique driving skills to do so, Speed decides to do what he does best and enters a race.

The creators of maplestory made a new mmo, and it runs Valve's SOURCE engine for its physics. So far as I've been playing it for a couple of days and its really fun. The graphics system is also crazy. My GeForce 8800 GT needed overclocking to securely play it on Medium quality. Running it on full graphics with multicore enabled has to be insane, so graphics are very solid. The gameplay is very different from a typical MMO. Not a stand around and wait on chance for a dodge, its similar to a action game because it runs as you walk around encountering enemies and like say Dynasty warriors, you run in slash and you can dodge their attacks by yourself. Currently only 3 (soon to be 4) classes available. I'd reccomend it to anyone wanting to try it. Audio is pretty well done. It starts off with a prologue and CINEMATIC. I mean pretty unique for a starting in MMO. I'd actually put it similar to guild wars in that aspect.
The name of the game is Vindictus from Nexon

I have a question for everyone and anyone, and its about censorship...
But first of all let me voice my opinion.
I feel that censorship in the media now a days has actually let up fairly well and i hope it doesnt change. Take for example:
Video games arent really anything new, the ESRB lets parents be the judges of what material to show their children, as it should be. Parents SHOULD be the main part in how a child is raised. And yes, i still get pissed like everyone else when you see some retard of a mother buying Left 4 Dead for their 5 year old son, but hell, its their choice. It just saddens and enfuriates me when someone in that situation, snaps and does something stupid, and it gets blamed on video games. Ha, yeah right...
Television has suprisingly lighten up on censorship the most in the past few years. From shows like Flapjack, which can be down right horrifying/disgusting at times, to newer shows like Regular Show, which get away with light swear words like "pissed" and suggestive situations like "he's going to drop his balls". I still think that it could be lightened a little more tho because, now again, this a situation for the parent to be more proactive, instead of just siting their child in front a television set to shut them up. I can still remeber shows my mom didn't want me watching, like Ren and Stimpy, and even lighter, Rocco's Modern Life. Although i did go back a watch these, im kinda gald my mom didnt let me watch them, because i enjoyed them more as an adult than i would have ever as a child.
Movies are the last thing i was going to touch base's on just because i have to least to say about it. I never really understood why they stopped showing NC-17 movies in theaters, but i guess its because of piss-poor sales. Im glad you gotta be 13 for PG-13 movies, and im glad you gotta be 17 for R. I dont think it could have been choosen better. But coming from experience, its still awkward as hell sitting next to your mom or dad during a sex scene if you're under the age.
But thats really all i have to say,
What do you guys think?
Now some people might hate or love this band. Me personally love. But ill go ahead and provide a short description of the band.
Protomen are a rock opera band. All of there songs link together to make a story, The story is a reimaging on Megaman.
Doctor Light and Willy were partners until Willy kills Light's love, Emily. Light then on swears to avenge Emily's death and save the city by creating Protoman. When done, Light sends Protomen to fight Willy's horde of robots. Protoman slowly falls to the enemy robots, and he looks on to see humans just watching as he falls. Light, then makes Megaman, but not to fight, Light made Megaman to relieve the grief from Protomans death. One day, Light decides that he must in fact tell Megaman about his brother. After hearing this tale, Megaman decides that he has to avenge his fallen brother and reclaim the city from Willy, regardless of Light's pleas. After tearing threw wave after wave of Wily's robots, Megaman finds himself in front of a robot that looks like him. That robot is Protoman. Light lied to protect Megaman. Protoman goes on to say that mankind if worthless because they have to create heros to save them. No heros are left in man. He urges Megaman to leave them to their fate and join him. But Megaman replies by saying that maybe one day, if people tell this story to their children, there might one day be a hero amoungst man, and vows to finish what was started by the Protoman...
Here are all their songs in order:
