Ask @Clarknova:

Would you be interested in airing any recent CN shows on Toonami? Adventure Time, Regular Show, etc. Do you think shows like those belong on Toonami?

I think Adventure Time could fit on Toonami nicely. Regular Show I really like, not sure if it would be a good fit for Toonami though... Steven Universe would fit, a few others might as well.

Hey, i saw on a Theard that, The Toonami Stream was cancelled and the Boruto and MHA Promos were cancelled and the Tumblr Account was deleted Is Toonami dying?

We’ve announced all of those things except for the Tumblr slowly over the last month or two. The stream did well but the cost was getting too high to maintain it, and doing so many topical promos every week was too much of a drain on our small staff.
As for the tumblr, it was going fine but frankly after their ridiculous decisions of late we just felt like it wasn’t something we were interested in maintaining. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Is there a good way to play Adult Swim singles beyond streaming them on adultswim.com? My phone always seems to crash the page on me. And I won't lie, I do so miss being able to download them and play them with the rest of my music..

Well they are always put up on the Adult Swim SoundCloud account as well as the Adult Swim YouTube channel, so yuh can check them out there!
They won’t be downloadable but at least you should be able to stream them.

Similar question to the one about Tetsuo, What’s your view on Colonel Shikishima in Akira?

Jack Barker
Shikishima is a clear fascist who favors military dominance over the citizenry of Neo-Tokyo, “for their own good.” He clearly cares about the Espers and is concerned for the well being of his city. His obsession with control and dominance is doomed to failure when faced with something truly unfathomable, like Akira.

In the end, do you think that Tetsuo is/was a bad person?

Jim Cole
I think one of the triumphs of Akita’s narrative is that you could make a fairly convincing argument on either side for Tetsuo or Kaneda. Tetsuo, in a way, never had a chance. The way he grew up and his place in that world built him into the monster he became. As for Kaneda, He tries to help Tetsuo as much as he can, but he never really understands him at all.
And that lack of understanding, even if there’s good intent behind it, is what leaves the gulf between them that Tetsuo fills with hate.
What an incredible movie.

Hey Jason. I was looking at the old preflight eps and I was surprised when you said you didn't like Linkin Park. I thought it was your type of music and you guys did play the pts of authority music video back in the day. Do you like their old stuff is that it? Just curious.....

I’ve never liked Linkin Park in any way, shape or form. I think we put one of their music videos that was animated on our website once? But if I recall correctly that was a favor we did for someone else. Sorry man. They just aren’t for me. Never have been.

You being a big horror fan, are you into the Resident Evil games at all, and if so have you played the new Resident Evil 2 Remake yet?

I’ve played almost all of the Resident Evil games, I really dug them until they got to the “virals” and I was sadly not into the last one that people liked. I bought the remake of RE2 but I haven’t fired it up yet. Definitely will soon!
