Here a twist. I was one of the people that was somewhat responsible or Toonmani comeback. All the videos I made were ads for possible shows on New Toonami. The Aftermath two thing was to keep people on board in case It took too long for it to come back. The Omaga code thing was a play on the various fan theories for the show,in preparation for !.0 to be possibly showed(it was). The music video thing was just an idea I was playing with for new toonmani. I wanted to see what people would have thought about it on aftermath. I and a few other people are still thinking on how to do music videos on Toonami. Well,that my tell all. See you guys later and keep watching Toonmani
Quick, right now, off the top of your head, name off a few anime series that could be considered to be intended for an "older" and more mature audience. What comes to mind? Cowboy Bebop? Wolf's Rain? Berserk, Claymore, Ergo Proxy, Madoka Magica perhaps? All valid answers.
Now name off a few western animated series that could be considered to be intended for the same demographic.
Batman: TAS? Various other DC animated films (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Superman: Doomsday)?
My point is this, it seems animation in the west is only reserved for kids shows, fairytales and low brow comedy, while the east has, at least in some capacity, accepted it as a medium for serious storytelling, just as valid and important as any other. If you look at some of the west's work in animation in recent years, you can tell they're inching towards that same conclusion, putting more thought and care in the stories they tell in the shows, Samurai Jack, Avatar: TLA , to a certain extent Adventure Time involving The Ice King, but these shows are all aimed towards kids. The older demographic is just an added bonus it seems. What do you think? Why are we so reluctant to make a mature themed animated series? Will there ever come a day where animation is used to tell a serious story?'
[Addendum] To clarify, this isn't a rag on western animation, or me putting eastern animation on a pedestal, the east has it's fair share of silly and kid oriented shows as well
