Toonami Jetstream 2006-09, R.I.P.

Well, our worst fears are now confirmed. When Toonami Jetstream removed all their episodes in favor of a special Top 10 list two weeks ago, it really was the beginning of the end. As of today, Cartoon Network completely took down Jetstream, the last remnants of the Toonami legacy.

When the Toonami television block came to an end last year, we thought "Hey, at least we still have Jetstream." But sadly that is no longer the case. Toonami now really is dead, having lasted in some form or another from 1997-2009. Why CN decided to kill off Jetstream as well is beyond me. As I've previously said, Hikaru no Go only had THREE more episodes to go. Likewise, Blue Dragon had about 10 more episodes & Zatch Bell only had 7 more dubbed episodes remaining (which seems to be the point where Viz stopped dubbing the series, though about 50 episodes were still left undubbed). Kiba still had a ton of episodes left to go, which I thought would have done a nice job of carrying Jetstream for awhile. Meanwhile, as of today, future episodes of Naruto will move to the Cartoon Network Video service. When you go to Jetstream's old site, here's the message one gets instead:

We greatly appreciate all the fan support for Toonami Jetstream over the past years. Starting January 30, Naruto will make its new home on CN Video at CartoonNetwork.com. Fans of MAR, Blue Dragon, and other popular VIZ Media series previously featured on Jetstream should check www.viz.com for future updates.

Oh Cartoon Network, when will you learn that American children are only truly in love with Japanese animation? sure they'll watch Chowder for 30 minutes, but to this day people are still watching the likes of Dragonball Z. If the day comes when you realize that, I'll turn on your channel once again.

Rest in piece Toonami

This is definately not good.Because of this news people will start going to illegal streaming sites in spades or resort to watching fansubs. Like it or not,but this is only going to get much worse before it gets better.

Has Ted Turner gone off the deep end? This one of the reasons I stopped watching CN. bastard took a legacy that was going strong & flushes it down the toilet!

Actually, Ted Turner hasn't been in charge of CN or any other Turner channel for a long time now. ^^;;
