    I'm more interested to see the return of Duel Masters to be honest.

    Wait wait wait wait WAIT, they're bringing back DUEL MASTERS? Oh, MERCY! And they're going to produce a new American-made show, not dub an anime? An AMERICAN-MADE card-game-based show? Oh, shit, this will be SO TERRIBLE I will have to watch it.

    WAIT A FURTHER MINUTE, I just went to google it a bit, and they still MAKE that show in Japan? Jeez, the things you learn!

    Also, hurray, more Transformers and the like. Totally. But really, Duel Masters? REALLY? I can't believe an American-made show will actually involve characters PLAYING the card game, it'll have to be something that adapts the IDEA of the game into a story. Surely.

    Transformers, yeah.

    That's great news! Although I'm not a fan of Rescue Tots, Prime definitely gets my vote.

    Very cool about Prime. I would hate to get into the Prime cartoon/toys just for it to be canceled. lol

    We saw a preview of it at Toy Fair, and it's not as bad as you'd think. It didn't give us any idea of the plot, but it certainly looked nice.

    As for the Japanese version, it aired after Animated on Saturday mornings, so I checked it out for a lark as I got a kick out of the dub helmed by Kevin Rubio, and it turns out they switched to cel-shaded CGI back in 2007, which does a pretty good job of imitating tradition anime, as long as the characters don't move too much, heh.

    It's nice to know that prime will be around for at least another year. That should mean that they'll be able to finish the three-season story they've had planned. If after that they decide to move on to something else, I won't be bothered. If anything it might give me the chance to build my RID collection some more, and maybe even start up an OS Thundercats collection :D  (I could use a bit of a break from Transformers, tbh).

    As for Rescue Bots, good for those that follow that show, but honestly, I couldn't care less.

    Care Bears making a return is interesting. I might actually check-out an episode or two of it, but it's definitely not something I'll be following. For a time my sisters were into them, so a little of that rubbed off on me (it was actually one of the few girly things they were into, lol).

    That's cool. More love for the '80s toons.

    LOLOLOLOL

    Good to have that confirmed.

    Good news for the Prime fans.

    Glad to see that's taking off. Diversity can only be a good thing for this fandom :thumb
