Wow....did anyone else hear this?

On Tuesday, December 3, 2002, Cartoon Network accounced the acquisition of three anime series that will air during Adult Swim, its highly-rated late night block of animation for adults aged 18 to 34. The three series are Lupin the Third, Reign and Trigun.

Lupin the Third follows the adventures of the greatest thief in the world, who also happens to be a suave gentleman. Aided by two partners, expert marksman Jigen and samurai master Goemon, Lupinís madcap adventures take him around the world stealing extraordinary treasures, helping damsels in distress, staying one step ahead of Inspector Zenigata and matching wits with rival thief, the beautiful and dangerous Fujiko.

Trigun takes place in the distant future on a deserted planet. Vash the Stampede is a gunfighter with a legend so ruthless that he has a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. Entire towns evacuate at the rumor of his arrival. However, the real Vash the Stampede is not the same man that rumor portrays him to be. The enigmatic and conflicted lead character in Trigun is actually more heroic in nature; as well as a complete and utter idiot at times.

Alexander the Great was the worldís most powerful warrior. Reign is a 21st century science-fiction retelling of the legend of this Macedonian king. A visual masterpiece, Reign tells the story of Alexander'sís triumphs through engaging characters, intricate plots and glorious battle sequences.

CNís successful block of late night animation for adults, Adult Swim, will air five times per week beginning Sunday, January 12, 2003. Airing from 11 pm to 2 am, ET/PT, Sunday to Thursday, the block will offer the hit series Futurama, quirky original animated series including Home Movies, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, and stunning action/anime series such as Cowboy Bebop and InuYasha.

Lupin the Third will air Monday to Thursday at 12 midnight, ET/PT beginning Monday, January 13, 2002. Programming information for both Reign and Trigun will be announced at a later date.

Well, CN isn't exactly bad dub central. If we ignore Pilot Candidate, none of their featured dubs were really that bad.

And Trigun is actually quite a good dub.

That's not a problem. That's a step up. I'm tired of seeing the 4000 Gundam shows.....

I actually like the Outlaw Star dub... Although the Uncut dub makes a whole lot more sense. Here's hoping some day they show Slayers... that's a pretty good dub too. Or maybe El-Hazard... that one's at least decent.

I know a lot of people would disagree to what i have to say, but i think that Cartoon Network should just stick w/ cartoons. One thing that infuriates me is when ignorant, everyday people confuses anime with regular cartoon programmings on tv.
I gotta admit that i was once a DBZ fan. But after seeing it on Cartoon Network and after it became the hometown craze, I lost interest in it. You'll hear people say "DBZ this, DBZ that......"
IT DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! And the worst part is, they don't even know what "anime" is!!! Sorry if i said something that would upset anyone, but i just don't want Trigun, one of my fav. anime, to be just another "cartoon" program to the eyes of regular people just like DBZ and other anime's on tv.

EXACTLY! :D

On the dubs - I can't say that everything they've showed was too bad. Dubs will be dubs. 'Nuff said.

Trigun dub is good. The problem with it on CN is that they are going to edit/censor the hell out of it! The best scene in Trigun is when Wolfwood shouts that expletive in episode 9.
