This morning I happened to come across the Toonami line up of shows for next year. I was surprised to find Naruto Shippuden on the list (and prayed it was not the DisneyXD version) but I was horrified to when I read the title Blue Exorcist.
You see, Ao no Exorcist is my favorite manga of all time but I hate the anime because, much like other anime that were created before the series was even midway in, it's plot has been changed greatly from that of the manga. Now, speaking as a critic of anime, Blue Exorcist is still a good one but nothing compared to the original Ao no Exorcist manga.

Now one reason I dislike this is because when I first fell in love with Exorcist, only a few people on the internet knew of it. Since then, I have watched the fan base grow but now that the anime that has been FMA'ed will be aired and (though I do consider Exorcist to be on the border of mainstream) it will now be fully labeled a mainstream anime.

Another reason I dislike it is because, of all the things about Manga Otaku's that I have learned since I read my first manga is that we tend to judge each other on how many years we have been otaku, how many manga we have read, and how many of those are mainstream. Liking a mainstream manga is inevitable but to only like those specific ones makes you appear like a noob and no one likes the noob who talks hardcore about only the few manga they know of. To put it simply, we Otaku tend to respect each other more the farther we are away from anything noob like, which sadly for most shows on Toonami, are all mainstream. Really, otaku is just a cooler word for hipster lol.

Anyways, if anyone actually reads my posts and made it this far, I thank you.
Here is the link for the 2014 Toonami line up. If anyone knows if the Naruto Shippuden will be the DisneyXD version or perhaps a better one please comment.

I am a fan of just about all forms of art despite not being very talented myself. I'm probably best at writing, then photography (maybe, when my camera acts right that is). Everything else probably still belongs in the beginner category. (Though my photos are likely still in that category too since I also have a habit of forgetting my camera and just using my phone.)

I adore manga and anime.
To date I have read/watched or am reading/watching: Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, Inuyasha, Fruits Basket, Bleach, Death Note, One Piece, Kekkaishi, Shaman King, Shaman King 0, Shaman King Kang Zeng Bang, Shaman King Flowers, Shaman King Remix Track, Shaman King Man Ji En, Magical DoReMi, Wolf's Rain, Peach Girl, Peach Girl: Sae's Story, Detective Conan, Full Metal Alchemist, Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood, Blood +, The Legend of Zelda Manga Series, Maximum Ride, Vampire Knight, Tokyo Mew Mew, Tokyo Mew Mew A La Mode, Ao No Exorcist, Doubutsu no Oishasan, Nurarihyon no Mago, Hetalia: Axis Powers, Hetalia: World Series, Hetalia: Beautiful World, Rock Lee's no Seishun Full-Power Ninden, Sakuran, Sengoku Youko, Necromancer, Chii's Sweet Home, KuroShitsuji, Hana Yori Dango, One Piece Omake, Soul Eater, Loveless, Pokémon: The Electric Tale of Pikachu, Magic Kaitou, Gokusen, Houkago Kimi To Koi O Shite, Sword Art Online, Pokémon Adventures, Saint Oniisan, and Bitter Virgin!
