Sarcasm? Japan's timeslots are pretty horrible too.

Does anyone know when this happens to air on Saturdays? I looked on AS's schedule and DRRR wasn't listed as airing this weekend.

So two more weeks of Kekkaishi reruns before it gets replaced by Durarara!!

I have all the Durarara DVDs so I don't have to worry about staying up late just to watch this on TV. But the good news is it'll get more popular which means my cosplay as Erika will be known more at future conventions!
A lot of people I met at conventions didn't even know if I was cosplaying as Erika!

I'm glad Adult Swin picked up a new series, but what they really need to do is get much more air time. I love Bleach but one episode per week, Really??? I'll be old before I finish watching that series, Although I think the english dubs are great.
I actually think Cartoon Network is scared that Anime becomes something that americans actually enjoy more than those stupid cartoons, thats why they cancel, repeat old series and give one episode per week. :) Maybe I'm just saying.........It gets frustating.

It's always nice to see more anime on TV even though I probably won't watch it. Although I never did watch Durarara!!, so I actually might try and catch the episodes as they air.

Well, I finally watched the dub and it's actually pretty good! Of course, I still prefer the Japanese though.

Awesome!

I just hope that the dubbers can do it justice.
