FMA loses 11:30 timeslot in May

With the announcements of Samurai Champloo and Paranoia Agent premiering on Adult Swim at 11:30 and 12:00 respectively, starting May 14 and 28, also respectively, FMA might be taking a rest. With Episode 20 airing this week, the pivotal Episode 25 is scheduled to air on April 30. This leaves 1 week before Samurai Champloo moves into FMA's timeslot. I don't know if they'll go onto Episode 26 on May 7. (No, I've never seen the fansubs, so do not spoil anything for me please.)

I know Funimation hasn't finished dubbing all the FMA episodes into English yet, so now it makes more sense why the DVDs are being put out at such a slow pace. It also makes sense that FMA would be taking a rest, as it were, until the fall. It's likely they might rebroadcast Episodes 1-25 at maybe a faster clip (2 different eps per week?) until Cartoon Network sees fit to continue with new episodes. It's also likely that they'll just give FMA a rest for a couple months or so. Still, I'd rather have them repeat 1-25, 'cause any FMA on TV is better than no FMA on TV.

So will FMA disappear from the lineup for a while, or will they run repeats, or what? Let the speculation begin.
