The anime schedule was shuffled around too. Saturday nights had new Fullmetal Alchemist episodes pushed back to 12 followed by Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig at 12:30. Then reruns of Neon Genesis Evangelion at 1 and Cowboy Bebop at 1:30. On weekdays Inyuasha is removed from the schedule except for Tuesday night where new episodes premiere at 12:30 AM. Wednesday marks new Samurai Champloo episodes and Thursday brings new Neon Genesis Evangelion episodes. Monday night lacks any premieres, instead we get FLCL again. Following the new stuff are re-runs of S-Cry-Ed and Lupin the Third.
