I mean if they gave it an earlier time slot and stuff then yeah, it'd be good to aim it at younger viewers, but that would defeat the purpose. If they just did what they did on Saturday and replaced [as] with it once a week I'd rather they stick to feeding the nostalgia crowd and play mature versions of their shows that couldn't originally air. It'd be nice being able to see uncut versions of all those shows.

I respectfully disagree with this. I mean I know how much Tezzle hates nostalgia pandering but that's just it... Toonami's been dead for years. Reviving it now would more or less serve simply to please the fans that missed it so much. Younger, newer viewers don't know what it is to begin with, so I wouldn't say they're the ones it should really be for. If they brought back Toonami,
I believe it should be a love letter to the faithfuls or it would defeat the purpose.
Bringing it back but geared more towards new viewers would feel like a slap in the face to people who were begging for it to return. If they wanted new
shows and new
viewers they might as well make a new
programming block and host instead of reviving Toonami.
Then again who am I to tell them what to do with Toonami? I'm not gonna fanrage over it and throw a ranty fit if they tried doing what they were doing in 2008, (if it looks like I am now, sorry, didn't mean for it to. I'm just throwing in my two cents, haha,)
I'd just stop being enthusiastic about it and go back to ignoring it. I just feel like trying to bring back a Toonami meant for new viewers would be showing that CN missed the point entirely.
There's a reason the "newer" Toonami was canceled, as well as a reason that there was such positive feedback to the April Fool's thing. On Saturday night we saw Tom 3, The Absolution, Gundam Wing, Outlaw Star, YuYU Hakusho and Dreams. We didn't see Pixar Tom, Naruto, Storm Hawks and Bakugan. That's why people thought the April Fool's thing was awesome.
