Cartoon Network may have killed off their Toonami programming strand, but that doesn't mean that the network has abandoned anime entirely, according to an unnamed Bandai employee at last weekend's New York Anime Fest. Talking to Newsarama, the Bandai source is quoted as saying “There is no way Cartoon Network is giving up Naruto or Pokemon any time soon... We also want people to make sure Code Geass is not cancelled and will be back on a more convenient time slot in the near future." Maybe CN is ready to just admit that anime is as much a cartoon as American animation? [Newsarama]
