Toonami 10 Best by j-rad306 Toonami 10 Best by j-rad306
This is a background I made in October of 2007 that I've had on and off since, and now I have it on again, so I decided to post it. These "10 Best" were chosen (in no particular order) in an article that was on the Absolution NeXt (www.anxtoonami.com) before all the stuff was taken down. I would agree that these certainly are 10 of the best, although in my opinion, they should've had Gundam Wing in there somewhere... Anyway, since my laptop has a 1280x800 screen, I put the white bar on the bottom so that the base of the picture itself lines up with the taskbar, so that the taskbar doesn't cut off any of the pic. It also reduces the slight vertical streth.

I may not always show it, but I am a hardcore Toonami fan. I remember seeing Moltar a few times, but I really got into it in the TOM1 era (ah, those were the days). And I stayed with it to the very end. I miss Toonami like nobody's business, and it still pisses me off that CN just threw it all away like they did. Toonami inspired me like nothing else, in both my art and my writing. I wouldn't be the way I am today if not for Toonami. I could rant, but it's all been done before. I do have a number of sweet fanpics in mind, though, which I'll get to...eventually. So until then, here's a sweet background for all you Faithfuls out there. Stay gold.

P.S.: Perhaps I ought to list the shows, in case anyone has trouble recognizing any.

Top row, left to right: Reboot, IGPX, Samurai Jack, Tenchi Muyo!, Dragon Ball Z
Bottom row, left to right: Big O, Justice League Unlimited, 08th M.S. Team, Outlaw Star, Zoids Chaotic Century

I only ever saw it Absolution NeXt (which, sadly, seems to have gone defunct since I last checked) and I've never been able to find it anywhere else.

Toonami has returnithed as prophisized! For one night many people enjoyed the nostalgia heart attack that was sprung on them and i hope you all enjoyed it as much as i did.......... BECAUSE THAT SHIT WAS CRAZY!!!!! WITH THE DBZ AND THE GUNDAM AND THE YU YU HAKUSHO AND THE TRIGUN AND THE OUTLAW STAR AND THE TENCHI MUYO AND THE OTHER GREAT ASS STUFF!!!!!

I know im not the only one who hopes that it is truly making its comeback and is being placed on adult swim and truly hoping that it was not just an april fools nostalgia trip to OD on.
I hope that they see the ratings for tonight and shit themselves and realize the terrible mistake they made by taking toonami away.

YOU GIVE IT BACK NOW LET US KEEP IT!!!

And if they don't ----> [link]
lol im probably just kidding, but i do thank them for the crazy nostalgia high i got and the manly tears that it may have brought me to.

I got the IGPX image (and the other images) from the Absolution NeXt website, but they're not up there anymore. I tried Google searching for the IGPX one, but I couldn't find it.

I didn't choose these shows. They were chosen in an article that used to be up on the Absolution NeXt website. I just put the pictures together into a background. Read the description before you comment.

I miss it even though it wasn't my forte until the end. Sorry I was a Nick fan for a long time. It's like Nick, Disney, and Cartton Network meet and decided to ruin our childhoods. And put...well you know. Some shows are decent, but it's mostly a gimic like humor that makes you watch it. In old cartoons you were attached to the charecters!!!!

T.T

This brings back wonderful memories of the good 'ol days... when CN was still a bloody channel and Toonami ruled the afternoon...

Big O... Dragon Ball Z... the old Gundam... Samuri Jack... Transformers Armada... the old Pokemon... and ZOIDS the one I miss the most!! :cries:

Why can't CN pull their head out of their ass and put the GOOD shows back on?!

It really is sad, I know...but if nothing else, Toonami will live on in our memories. That's something CN can never take away. For now, it's up to us to carry on the Revolution.

I hate what CN has become, too. As unlikely as it is that things will go back to exactly the way the were, I still hope that there are better days to come. Otherwise, I don't see how the network could last.
