Hello and greetings fellow Otaku,
Now for those of you who are wondering when Adult Swim will be airing new episodes of the popular anime series Bleach, well have I got some good news for you.
Now back in March I mentioned that Adult Swim would not be airing any new episodes of Bleach starting in April, so for over the past four months all you have been able to see were re-runs of the first eight seasons. Now while this was good for those of us who have never seen the series before, hard core fans of the series have been dying to know when are new episodes coming. Well if you were watching Adult swim last night, you may have seen an on screen bump stating that new episodes will be airing starting August 28.
Now this is all well and good, but you probably thinking to yourselves what is going to happen to the rest of the schedule. Well here is a look at what’s in store for the anime block starting August 28.
Adult Swim Saturday Night Anime Block (8/28/2010)
12:00 AM-Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (Repeat Episode (Ep.3))
12:30 AM-Kekkaishi (New Episode (Ep.14))
1:00 AM-Bleach (New Episode (Ep.168*))
1:30 AM-Inuyasha (Repeat Episode (Ep.1))
2:00 AM-Cowboy Bebop (Repeat Episode (Ep.3))
2:30 AM-Cowboy Bebop (Repeat Episode (Ep.4))
3:00 AM-Ghost In The Shell (Repeat Episode (Ep.6))
3:30 AM-Ghost In The Shell (Repeat Episode (Ep.7))
4:00 AM-Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (Encore Pres (Ep.3))

5:00 AM-Bleach (Encore Pres (Ep.168*))
5:30 AM-Inuyasha (Encore Pres (Ep.1))
*Beginning of season 9 story arc (The New Captain Shusuke Amagai)
So overall the schedule will pretty much remain the same with the exception that Inuyasha will be replacing the second episode of Bleach at 1:30 and 5:30AM and FMA:Brotherhood will be on hiatus until further notice in which the forst twenty-six episodes of the series will be repeated in its entirety.
It is also understood that Bleach will be taking over the 12:00AM time slot that FMA:Brotherhood has occupied since February and that episodes of King Of The Hill and The Boondocks will be taking over the 2:00 and 3:00AM time slots from Cowboy Bebop and Ghost In The Shell. Currently their is no word as to when these changes are taking place.
As always we will keep you posted on further developments on this breaking story as they become available. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
