Gemusetto Death Beats premieres November 7 during toonami

Recommended Posts

Is this another Adult Swim original trying to impede on Toonami?

Ask Ballmasterz how well that went.

At least Ballmasterz was good and had enough anime references to justify it being there. This show is (show name redacted because it doesn't exist) levels of bad.

I have mixed feelings about this. It does seem that the quality is up a notch from the April Fool's gag of a first season, but if they were always going to do this, why not grant the first season Toonami bumpers??

Also, Ass Class is kicking ass at 1 AM. Why mess with that!?

Why is this show about Arin Hanson going through an isekai adventure?

i wonder what jason demarco will say about this if he says anything

I expect the episodes to be like 3 minutes long and thus won't hinder the regular schedule at all.

You have a point--they may very well be!

Oh, I know. I just thought it'd be too cheap if I'd mentioned the other one as I initially intended.

They're 11 minutes, there are supposedly 14 episodes in season 2 so that will be 7 half hours. Seems like a fine way to give Black Clover a break until January.

I don't know about a "fine" way, but it is a way...

...this also indicates they MAY not be having a Thanksgiving marathon...

But dear GOD, if they decide to marathon this on Toonami... 🤬

I dunno.  I was upset at Perfect Hair Forever when I saw it around 2008 because it had aired in place of an anime on Toonami at the time, which Adult Swim did not announce. Still sore about that.

 The best part of Perfect Hair Forever was Space Ghost trying (and failing) to do a round table panel discussing it.

What most people don't know about the [as] Brain Trust is that it was meant to be a panel discussion on the Squidbillies pilot - hence why Early's there - but because the pilot was far from ready yet, they aired PHF in its place instead.

The ambiguity of what the "program we just watched" even was helps with that.

Gemusetto is like PHF but with an even less likeable protagonist!

No no, this can only be a secret conspiracy to hide the fact that they don't have any new shows! Because it's not like they've ever aired Western cartoons before!  This is clearly a harbinger of the block's impending doom! THE END IS NIGH!

what about this says "good idea for toonami!"?

I Don't hate that this is a western cartoon  i hate that it's just a "turn your brain off and watch the silliness happen" show being put on toonami

because "Anime References!"

Supposedly the second season will be much more of a show than the first season was. And an action adventure show at that. But this is far from the first time Toonami's thrown on a bizarre show. Pop Team Epic and Bo-Bobo for two.

From Adult Swim's perspective, a show that's loaded with anime references makes sense for a block that contains many of the shows that are getting referenced. And the general Adult Swim audience probably doesn't appreciate Gamusetto, so they're experimenting with airing it on Toonami. It's a gamble but Adult Swim likes to gamble.

i just don't think Gemusetto will be as loved as they are hoping it'll be

BallMasterz Was one thing because it was being used as filler until Jojo Part 5's dub could resume

but this is being used as an actual replacement for Golden Wind

Welp, nice guy in the video demarco posted but it doesn't look like something I'll like so I guess I'll give it an ep but I guess it won't be entirely terrible to have a half hour food break in the middle of Toonami...

depending on when Fire Force S2 premieres  I May not have much at all to watch on the block soon

i have no idea why demarco is trying to sell the toonami fans on this show other than he's friends with the creator

UGH, really?  I have seen a little of the first season before, due to not changing the channel or turning the TV off fast enough, of course.  It is obnoxious.  And saying season 2 is "more of a show," isn't saying much.  I doubt it's like Perfect Hair Forever, since that was actually funny.  I just hope it's not speed-fueled like Ballmastrz was.  You couldn't even follow that.

It's not so much that.  I don't care where the show was made.  I don't think this portends that TOONAMI IS DYING either.  I just don't want this crap show taking up and wasting time and space on the block.

It is more nepotism from the dear tastemaker.  Just like this stunt he is pulling putting Run the Jewels on.  It's bad enough Demarco forcing the crap he likes on the viewers, but he's gotta put his friends' crap on the air.

Well yeah it doesn’t really fit next to Japanese kids shows like Ass Class, DBS and Black Clover... because it was written for adult audiences. 🤣

those shouldn't be separate....being for an adult audience shouldn't mean being on the level of some youtube poop content

and that's what Gemusetto S2 comes off as.....something that can only be enjoyed by people who think youtube poops are the funniest thing ever

that's not the audience for toonami  people don't come to toonami to turn off they're brains and stare at some pictures

Welcome to Western adult animation since forever, which is why no one trusts Western attempts at adult action animation.  It’s comedy straight out a Youtube poop or Tumblriffic “We have LBGTQ+ characters, you’re a bigot if you insult the show” like that abomination on SyFy.  All you can do is not watch.

Or do watch. We're not cops, we don't enforce what individual people can and can't like, even if what they like is flawed out the wazoo.

Well in this case I was going off the assumptions that he didn’t care for the show or the type of humor being presented given the complaints being made about said show,, therefore not watching it and letting it get cancelled was preferable.  

This is also why Primal is such a big deal, but Genndy has earned the trust of his viewers over decades.

i mean I've never been randomly selected to take part in the nielsen survey so my viewership doesn't count anyways  what i watch makes no difference in a show's performance

THIS JUST IN: [as] just remembered Fire Force Season 2 exists, and have moved the premiere time for Gemusetto Death Beat(s) down to 2AM as a result.

Well that's kinda shitty honestly. That implies it will even be after Black Clover.

So we're probably looking at this in November.

12:00 - Dragon Ball Super
12:30 - Fire Force Season 2
1:00 - Assassination Classroom
1:30 - Black Clover
2:00 - Gemusetto: Death Beats
2:30 - Naruto: Shippuden
3:00 - Demon Slayer

Or... Black Clover does go on a break and SAO is ready to air (or something else).

Shitty for live viewers, yeah. Me, I just record everything and watch it the next day, so as long as it's in there, that's fine by my flexible standards.

I have a significant distrust of Western animated writers for a while now.  It’s always the most surface level parody made by people who despise anime and want it either destroyed or bent to their morals and standards.  And it always looks like crap.  Whiny, butthurt Twitter trolls trying to weave their way into streaming services and usurp the stuff they despise with their own crap, then shout “Racist!” And “homophobe!” when it inevitably flops on its face.

Case in point - 

It is the wrong show, for the wrong block, at the wrong time.
