    While we are at it, might as well bring HeMan and the Masters back for another shot. (cant remember if the reboot was bad or good though)

    Bar the beginning. Learn to close the door. You know what Kubo should do when Bleach is over? Move into the mecha genera! I can see it now, it would be awesome...I think.

    What about Zombie Powder?

    Haven't read all in this thread, but is there any indication that Toonami's doing well?

    Ratings have been slowly going up. In December, ThunderCats became the first show to hold 1 million viewers in the 1:00am timeslot. And just last week, ThunderCats also became the first show to hold 1 million at 1:30am. (Sym-Bionic Titan pulled 947K, which isn't all that far from 1 mil.!) Last week was also the first time 4 shows pulled over 1 million viewers in a night and resulted in the highest total ratings for Toonami so far.

    To compare, in 2012, the highest rated night Toonami had was the 2nd night after the revival, when Deadman Wonderland and Casshern Sins were just starting. So far, in 2013, Toonami has beaten previous best nights 3 times in 2 months. I'd say that's evidence things are going well.

    This just in from Momocon, One Piece is joining the Toonami lineup.

    Also they're celebrating the 15th anniversary of the block this Saturday with a screening of Evangelion 1.11.

    And TOM and the Absolution are getting facelifts. Expect TOM 5 to debut in April.

    Adding to this:

    Apparently, a few shows were mentioned that might be in consideration for airing at some point. Samurai Champloo and Sailor Moon 2013 appear to be shows they are considering, and possibly Panty & Stocking.

    Young Justice and Samurai Jack will not be airing on Toonami, though they said they are looking into some non-anime shows right now.

    Also, One Piece may not be what replaces Tenchi Muyo! GXP. Another new show might possibly replace it. It has yet to be confirmed exactly when One Piece will begin airing.

    They should've canceled GXP after the first episode.

    This is what really catches my attention from tonight's news. Why show this when it has nothing to do with anything currently airing, when there were options like Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos and the two Bleach movies they haven't aired?

    Of course, I'm not complaining, but it does get me wondering if it might be leading to something else.

    Probably mostly because Evangelion is enormously popular. Granted, so are the others, but, if I'm not mistaken, Evangelion is even more so?

    Don't worry, you're not alone brother.

    I feel so iffy going into it considering all the harsh mixed feedback. On top of that the shows I've really enjoyed recently have all been of the mecha genre.

    I haven't seen it either. It doesn't seem like my sort of show.
    100% of information in signatures on this forum involving percentages is false. If you feel as cheated by this atrocity as I do, don't you dare copy this into your signature.
    Hold on... if this percentage was correct at the time of print, that means the actual percentage of false information is less than 100% if this signature is included. Which means that... no! I've become a slave to the system!!

    I speedrun DS Pokémon games. Currently, I speedrun Pokémon White 2, and I've also ran Pokémon Pearl in the past. If you want to see Pokémon games pushed to their limits (or if you want to do so yourself!), check out the Pokémon Speedruns website, and if you want to watch me, catch me on my Twitch channel.

    You're right, but it still seems odd to me that Toonami would go for something related to a franchise that hasn't aired on it in what, thirteen years (?) when they already have multiple franchises airing right now with movies they could have picked.

    I really wonder if this might be testing the waters for future airings of the other Rebuild films (3.33 will likely have a dub by this time next year) or even an eventual reairing of the original series.

    Understandable since usually franchises a big as this are often intimidating. However don't let other opinion keep you guys from enjoy what could possibly be a good show. I will admit that it is not for everyone persay. It really is character driven tale when you get down to it. Otherwise it is enjoyable despite whatever people may say about it. The Rebuild movies are perfect for newcomers who haven't seen it and the dub is pretty good.

    Edit: Instead of using my post to worship Asuka, I wll comment on the movie that Toonami showed.

    I think if someone likes robots then they MAY like the series but beware the high probability of psychological mumbo jumbo.

    Yes, they just haven't said when yet. It could replace Tenchi GXP, but it appears as if they are trying to get something else to replace GXP with.

    ==========

    Announcements!

    April 27th will be the on-air debut of TOM 5, the new Absolution, and the new look for Toonami!

    Also, after a LOT of paperwork it would seem, Toonami has managed to regain the rights to their only original series, IGPX, and it will begin airing that same night! They said they will possibly cut Cowboy Bebop down to only 1 episode a night to make room for it.

    And it's worth noting that IGPX is NOT the replacement for Tenchi GXP, and One Piece still doesn't have a date set. We could possibly be getting yet another show when GXP finally ends.

    On top of that, they're trying to consider where exactly to start with One Piece. If they start from the beginning, it'll take them 6 years to get where Japan is *right now* but if they start from Season 4, they run the risk of alienating newer fans.

    Either way, I threw the suggestion their way on their Tumblr that they could always do a series recap promo like they did for Bleach. That and there's the fact that the Enies Lobby arc has an episode each per Straw Hat that gives a flashback on their beginnings to their current struggles.

    I haven't been up to date or in the best of spirits the past few years to be catching up and watching what Toonami has to offer ever since it's return back into television.

    But I'm actually glad that it's actually doing pretty good. I'm actually surprised by the amount of content that's being offered on the program's setlist. There's some really good shows.

    I need to catch up back on my own media watchlist and get up to date with whatever else i can waste my time with on this silly planet.

    So then does anyone know what the odds are of Toonami regaining the weekday afternoon time slots? (But that might be tough with Adventure time and those other shows floating around)
