So how many episodes did Deadman Wonderland last because if it went on for more than 13 episodes then I've got to lol at Toonami dropping the sucker for Samurai Seven (and
Eureka Elrecca Seven but I'm willing to attribute that to whatever else they've decided to dump to make room for that).
If it didn't then I've got to lol at Japan's anime industry displaying some loving standards for once.
And on that note, I'm actually tempted to rewatch E7 again just for the sake of having a blast from the past, but goddamn does the prospect of having to slog through 50+ episodes of some really glacial plotting turn me off from that (I could hover around until Charles shows up then watch until the Gekko undergoes repairs which I can skip watching completely for a month or so then resume til the end).
Meanwhile it's also been years since I last watched Samurai Seven and I didn't finish it back then due to being fairly unimpressed by it so I'm none too sure I want to try again.
(Ironically, I think its been seven years since I last watched these shows :v:).
As for DW itself, the only thing surprising about it was just how hard it was for some characters to die despite the ludicrous gibs this show indulges in like a Shonen series trying to pass itself off as a Seinen series. Otherwise the arc ended with the usual MC gets owned, MC is saved by resident badass, MC undergoes a training montage, MC uses his new powers to better trash some mooks, MC still gets owned by the arc's boss, cutscenes kick in and side characters use power of friendship to briefly convert one of the bosses into a friend who strikes a minor blow against the arc's boss before getting owned (or in this case fatally wounded again), MC has an epiphany and goes Super Sayin', MC oneshots the arc's boss with an attack
that he won't be able to control until the next epiphany during the next boss fight (and will be rendered completely worthless immediately afterwords), and that's all she wrote folks.
Fake Edit: On second thought, I'm probably going to skip Samurai Seven. I've seen the actual Seven Samurai movie so I already know what happens, furthermore I was pretty unimpressed by the whole mecha ascetic, plus it came from Gonzo Studio which means I can almost guarantee you the ending will suck.
