Back in 2004, anime was airing on multiple television channels. The one channel that was on top was Cartoon Network with the Toonami block. On Saturday nights they had 3 solid hours of anime. When the late night came around the Adult Swim block started with 2 to 3 more hours of anime. 2004 was consider to be the peak of anime on television. Few years have passed and only Adult Swim and SyFy are the ones airing anime once a week at late night.
