with all the comics, and books and what not that takes place between EP II & III yet there is no mention of Ahsoka whatsoever how does this effect the timeline/story of Anakin?  There's quite a few comics with Obi/Ani run around together is she dead already or what she can't have graduated to knighthood in say a years time.

Maybe she is deep undercover somewhere during order 66 working for a new master?

The CW toon will ultimately **** on any EU it wishes to...  I have no doubts of that.  Look at the Y-Wing re-design afterall since an armored-up design already existed.  I prefer the toon look but there was an existing one in place afterall.

My concerns are more with how the toon is going to jive with the established canon of the films.  Will Anakin ever face Grievous before their meeting on the Invisible Hand?  If he does, that's totally lame.

Well, they already **** on Grievous' backstory. A few sources (CN.com, for example) now state that GG put himself in his robotic suit in order to rival the Jedi. No more shuttle crash or Kalee-Huk War. It really brings Grievous down to just a cheesy villain rather than someone played by Palpatine's corruption.

Hell, they're kinda ******** on Cannon as well.  This week they've already referred to Anakin as Master Skywalker.   ::)

Eh. It is more out of respect since he has a padawan. Kenobi was often addressed as Master Kenobi in AOTC but I think he was technically supposed to be just a Knight.

This was how I took this as well...  He's a Master to his Padawan...  But is he a "Master" on the council?  Nah, and he's not really a Master to Kenobi, Yoda, etc.  If anything, he's being tested as much as Ahsoka is, which they play up in the conversations away from Anakin and things.  I think that's just semantics too...  He's being pushed to "mature" a bit by being given Ahsoka...  Maybe he wasn't progressing as they'd hoped after AOTC?

Remember he went in, he fought with Obi-Wan  seemingly non-stop, he lost his arm due to his dumbass behavior, and now the war's on and nobody can be left babysitting someone you can't trust, so it seems like they're trying almost a "remedial Jedi class" with him by forcing a trainee on him, trying to make him "grow up" by giving him someone to be responsible for.
