Tenchi Muyo GXP Comes to Toonami

Tenchi Muyo Returns!
[Source: AnimeNewsNetwork] Adult Swim, the American cable and satellite network that is paired with Cartoon Network, announced on Saturday that it will run the Tenchi Muyo! GXP television anime series at 12:30 a.m. EDT/PDT, starting next Saturday (effectively early Sunday morning). Inuyasha is also repeating during Adult Swim's Toonami block, starting this weekend.

The anime studio AIC produced Tenchi Muyo! GXP in 2002 as the third Tenchi television series. It is a side story centering around the new main lead Seina Yamada, a seemingly ordinary Japanese boy. He finds himself joining the Galaxy Police, due to being mistaken for a certain Tenchi.

FUNimation licensed the series in 2002 and released it on DVD singles in 2004 with reissued boxsets in 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2012. The company also announced the license to the Tenchi spin-off, Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar, having acquired the streaming, home entertainment, theatrical, and merchandise rights to the complete Tenchi Muyo! anime franchise.

Cartoon Network's previous Toonami Block aired the first two Tenchi Muyo! OAV series, Tenchi Universe television series, and the Tenchi in Tokyo television series.

The new schedule will be:
12:00 Bleach
12:30 Tenchi Muyo! GXP
01:00 Samurai 7
01:30 Thundercats
02:00 Sym-Bionic Titan
02:30 Eureka 7
03:00 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
03:30 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
04:00 Cowboy Bebop
04:30 Cowboy Bebop
05:00 Inuyasha
05:30 Inuyasha
