The finale of Intruder 2 happens this Saturday during the first episode of the marathon. It's the longest episode so don't miss it.
Toonami will be airing a DBZ Kai marathon of episodes 44-50 this Saturday.
Samurai Champloo starts January 2nd at 1:30am
A brand new season of Samurai Jack is being made for Adult Swim Toonami. Coming in 2016.
December 26th will be a One Piece marathon of episodes 320-326. Yes, most of those are heavy dialog post Eneis Lobby episodes.
This was the last normal night for the year. Average up front, starting to slip in the back. Kind of a disappointing end to M&H ratings wise.

>day 2 of 2016
>they already can't afford shit
Samurai Jack pissed away the entire years budget
>a manglobe production is replacing a manglobe production
Was it cheap because the studio went under? Or is it Watanabe wank? Both?
Champloo was on my backlog for the longest time so I'm looking forward to it.
They aren't giving Toonami anything either. It's Aniplex and Sentai giving the new stuff.
We will still get Funi shows, but they will be things that have a good layer of dust on them
I can't believe they're going to marathon one piece, I just can't fucking believe it. Why? Why these episodes? Did the HAVE to air these ones? Is there a policy about not airing episodes out of order under any circumstance?
For fucks sake, there goes the possibility of One Punch Man then. Viz's dubs are usually pretty decent too.
I'm guessing the majority of new shit were getting is going to be from Sentai, since they pick up way more stuff than Aniplex.
Sentai dubs are so fucking bad, but surprisingly Parasyte actually isn't that bad at all. Maybe they're getting better? Who knows...
But with Aniplex being a main factor now, does that raise the chances of Fate/Zero getting on? I mean I know UBW is more likely to air because it's newer and there's more hype, but Zero is so much better.
There must be, even Demarco should be able to see 6/7 of these episodes have 0 action. Maybe they just don't give a shit because of Christmas.
It will be gone in 2 weeks
Viz may change their ways, but they have given nothing new since Final Act. The bigger issue with OPM is having 6 OVA episodes. If Viz doesn't package them with the deal Demarco won't touch it, purely to avoid people bitching that they didn't get them
Any hope for Fate left when it didn't replace SAO
Toonami isn't MAKING Samurai Jack, m8. It just happens to be the most convenient place to air it. And it's being produced in-house (as in, Cartoon Network Studios), so it's not being licensed for air time either.
Also, money isn't allocated at the stroke of midnight on the New Year. SamCham was acquired using this years money.
Nobody is giving anything anyway. An offer is an offer. If Toonami wants new things, Adult Swim better offer something nice for it. If the offer is good enough, Funi won't refuse it... Unless they're stupid. Or if they can't. Something appearing on their streaming service doesn't necessarily mean it's off limits for licensing unless there's some weird clause between the US distributor and the Japanese companies outright forbidding it. Some shows are web-exclusive and there isn't a damn thing anybody can do about it.
Getting the conditions just right to acquire a show, often, is like waiting for planets and stars to align. A block has to prove its merit to its network who has to deal with their parent company who has to deal with whatever company is in charge of a property, who in turn has to deal with the company in Japan who licensed them the property, who in turn has to deal with their own production partners and studios and whoever else was involved. It can take forever. There's a lot of hassle and red tape.
I don't like it either.
>Is there a policy about not airing episodes out of order under any circumstance?
Entirely possible. TV contracts are weird, man. TV in general. It's way more than just one dude carrying all of the weight.
>le Funimation is le enemy meme :^)
>le Funimation doesn't play ball meme :^)
>le dont expect anymore new Funi shows meme :^)
b t f o
>Funimation cut down to 3 slots in 2015, only 1 that can be switched out
>only contribution to the block in 2015 were a non action 2 year old dub and an ASA repeat that's 10 years old
>implying Demarco would publically shit talk them
But that's ok, in 6 months we can see what they fish out of their bargain bin to replace Champloo :^)
>mfw this fuck ruined a perfectly good tomboy thread the other day
Not so much boring, just different. If this was a purely action-oriented block, it probably would have never been picked up. To a lesser extent, this applies to Parasyte as well, but maybe 1/8th of the episodes have no action. Nevertheless, I liked it. The real question is what comes next - short of AgK now, everything else on the block is stuff I've seen before/runs too long to bother with weekly.
I imagine in this case, "we needed a cheap show fast" is referring to how the plan to air Fujiko Mine fell through at the 11th hour and that pricier shows probably take longer to negotiate. So they went with a cheap show that people at least vaguely remember.
I highly doubt Samurai Jack is coming out of Toonami's budget. That's got actual funding coming from Cartoon Network and Adult Swim rather than the trickle-down budget Toonami plays with.
Demarco should be fired for taking more than 10 minutes to turn down Fujiko Mine. It was so obvious it couldn't air on TV without massive butchering
Agreed, it's a great show but tons of people will just see it as a mid block rerun, and since everything after it sucks anyway it's easy to leave after Parasyte
And the mystery fighter, stronger than both Goku and Vegeta.
>Sara is kill
>Absolution is kill
>Intruder is blown up but likely not dead
>TOM now drifting aimlessly through space
>one episode left
How are they gonna tie all this up in under 10 minutes?
will TOM4 and friends come to the rescue
Honestly, KoTH usually doesn't do too bad and neither does Cleveland which is why AS keeps showing them. It's Oblongs that is the problem. AS needs to just stop trying to force their older originals now. DBZ can't return soon enough.
So a bit of a disappoint for the M&H replacement, and it doesn't seem that any of those "big" changes from Intruder 2 are going to happen. Nothing fresh till late February now.
TOM gets picked up by
the Aloha Oe, and Dandy is the new host of Toonami until TOM is back on his feet.
Bayonetta Bloody Fate on toonami when?
So are these previously aired episodes or are they using the holiday to burn through a bunch of really shitty One Piece episodes in one night for the purpose get through them ASAP?
Remember how you fags kept saying DBZ and Naruto would perform poorly because everyone has already seen it? Remember how you fags kept saying Final Act would bomb because nobody cares about Inuyasha? We're not going through this again.
>But Shampoo has already aired on Adult Swim
So did the majority of the lineup in the beginning.
>and it got poor ratings
It did well actually. It didn't premiere on Saturdays back then but Thursdays alongside Inuyasha and NGE.
From who? They wouldn't have brought Champloo back if it performed poorly on the block.
>M&H did great
.....when it had came after Akame after it moved after Parasyte ratings dropped hard which proved that it was the strong lead-in that helped it and the show wasn't pulling its own weight. The marathon was also proof if this.
>like the 10th marathon Toonami has had now
>not one of them has showed new episodes
>knowing Demarco runs the block and wants things to last as long as possible
You earned that rudeness
M&H didn't do great but it didn't do bad either its entire run was backed by stronger shows so while it wasn't a black hole it sure as fuck wasn't strong. I still don't understand these doomsday theorists for Champloo, it hasn't aired on the block in years and is more entertaining than Michiko so it should do fine for a budget title.
>Michiko and Hatchin didn't subsist solely on the Scooter-Scooter Fruit on the entirety of their adventure to stretch their way to Monkey D. Hiroshi
4/10, low-tier Devil Fruit users
In their defense, they opened up with a blatant harem show
At least that's what I've heard
>ANOTHER FUCKING FIRE EMBLEM CHARACTER
Pretty upset myself
second worst scout, best scout here
since face it, moon is coming sooner or later
Tom remains host the entire time, Dandy and crew just refuse to leave since the NEW absolution Tom will eventually get is way better than the absolution. Dandy keeps hitting on and making new full body SARA uncomfortable
>But Shampoo has already aired on Adult Swim
Shampoo save toonami!
>Ragyo will never rape you
Why does existence hurt so much
This would make toonami worth it
Because the chance of having a stable relationship with a sexy dominant milf is practically zero. It hurts.
>Because the chance of having a stable relationship with a sexy dominant milf is practically zero
I-I just want a loving christmas cake in my life. Is that so much to ask?
>I-I just want a loving christmas cake in my life. Is that so much to ask?
Yes it is, because your waifu ate the whole damn cake.
To be fair, the chances of finding a young,attractive lady on par is equally unlikely.
Michiko and Hatchin is more of a nonserial show so it's not surprising the finale didn't get huge views.
I have no idea if a show being serial actually has an effect on it's viewership on toonami
Honestly, I would've much rather had the new Viz Sailor Moon dub replace M&H than Champloo. I've already seen Champloo years ago and there hasn't been anything on that interests me outside of DBZKai and Parasyte. Before I'd just watch either DBZKai alone or DBZKai and KLK. Now I watch DBZKai, mute the TV for half an hour and unmute it when Parasyte comes on, then turn it off when it's over until the next Saturday. I don't use my TV other than to watch DBZKai and Parasyte every week.
>implying i wouldn't be the one who feeds it to her
Maybe when we die we'll finally be able to find happiness in the world beyond. A dream world filled with our true desires. That or an empty, black, eternal void of nothingness.
I just ant some magical girl back on the block, more mechs too
That was some top kek shit, way to show the viewers the block wouldn't last in the first 15 minutes
Oh god guys
>enjoying the block like I normally would
>a light buzz going
>girl decides to text me and ask what I'm doing
>oh nothin just watchin TV
>what are you watching?
>reflexively type out Parasyte since that's what I'm watching
>as my finger contacts the send button my brain wakes up and realizes the grave error I just made
>"oh. What's that?"
>oh it's just a show nothing important haha
>know damn well she looked it up
>hasn't texted since
BUZZED WATCHING IS DRUNK WATCHING
Was I the only one disappointed with the end of M&H?
>all that work to find Hiroshi
>he left in 4 months kek
>Hatchin ends up a single mom from a BR
>Michiko gets nothing she had looked for
It's like I watched an episode of real life of lower class people.
>go to small gathering at a female friend's house
>she's been trying to hook me up with one of her friends for months
>show up at 11
>she says "did you want to watch Toonami?"
>her friend keeps asking me to explain what's going on
>drink a beer
>she leaves after Akame
>I leave after Parasyte
alpha as fuck
best action show
Devil, Zero, and GLG could work
though even as a dub loving shit, Zero's is atrocious
Not gonna lie, Toonami is my first exposure to Parasyte and I hated the OP on the first night. Then every week the cut one grew on me, now I'm listening to the full thing all the time.
It gets you pumped as fuck, not normally into digitized voices or screaming, but I can't help but love it. Beats j-pop, that's for sure.
Hey Toradora had ONE fight scene at least.
ignore the serbianhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mOvvE6M5xM
Well damn, I'm down then. Thanks for the heads up man.
Taiga best girl
She is pretty best. For sure. I wouldn't mind her on Toonami at all, though I have no idea how the dub turned out.
>Intruder 2 ends
>SARA repairs TOM1 somewhat
>they both depend on one another to survive
>all of SARA's old memories of previous shows come back
>they both reminisce about the "old days"
>Toonami takes over Friday 12-4 reshowing all the old shows ranging from Inu-yasha to blue gender and everything in between, longer shows get 2 episodes per week
>TOM5 drifts into a new station, gets a new ship somehow, Saturday12-3:30 is business as normal with a backup SARA
I do wonder what the end game for Intruder 2 will be. Can't just be Samurai Champloo airing. I like the show well and all, but its so obviously just a cheap option to clear out the rest of their 2015 budget that I couldn't get excited if I wanted to.
>This was the last normal night for the year
I liked them, they take some getting used to. Taiga's does the best she can but she has a ton to live up to. Taiga's english voice is Cass Morris, the voice of Sugu. Really the major problem seems to come from shit voice direction. Will say though, just couldn't latch onto Ryuji's voice actor.
Get over it ya pansy. They have to air marathons during the holidays just because how awful the ratings are. Its such a niche thing we enjoy and it comes on late so relying on normal people to support this thing is probably the only thing keeping it going and they can't air new episodes during the holidays in order to keep people watching those ads come next year. So stop bitching about it and figure out something else to do Saturday nights for the rest of the month.
>Main male character
>doesn't say anything important
wanted some Ryuji reaction but turns out I have no pictures of him, just 99% Taiga with a few of the other girls mixed in
It's funny because I've been browsing /a/ since 2008 and only found out about the stream this year
But really watching Toradora week to week as it aired in 2009 with /a/ was great
Urusei Yatsura on Toonami when?
So I have a proposal I'd like to share. Since the Christmas Q&A episode of PreFlight is next week, I wonder if we could push a show into their Top 5 requests. While I bet it's mostly DragonBall Super and Sailor Moon, don't forget Akame ga Kill made it into the list last year so maybe we can pull it off.
>a general with 200 or so users
>making even the slightest scratch on anything
>suggesting a mediocre show
>thinking Demarco gives a shit about suggestions
>thinking Funi gives a shit about Toonami anymore
Hmm, I had completely forgot about that. I actually can't think of any questions to ask. After the Champloo announcement I'm so unhype for the block, and it looks like Intruder 2 is gonna be a let down too
>What I have in mind is GARO
I wish, but it literally doesn't even have a dub yet and I doubt it's ever getting one..
>destroying the cool and complicated designs of the old absolution and TOM
>replacing them with boring white streamlined versions because DUDE THE FUTURE LMAO
Reminder that this is what happens when you watch too much anime.
Say no to school shootings! Say no to Toonami!
>we won't see each other for about a week
>I can give you a ride
This is legitimately the best episode of the series
I realize this is true, but you're still a dick for pointing it out.
I think the general would kill themselves halfway through Episode 1.
I'd wreck her so hard god damn
It's only three times you fat sow. Also will 2016 be the year that Toonami comes to its senses and airs this?
anyone with taste would
wish she had shot it from behind god dammit, bet the ass is glorious
will the app even have any purpose after intruder?
It doesn't seem to have a purpose now. The Twitter function does nothing, and there's no sense using AS streams when there are hundreds of illegal ones with every show ever at any time. Just a waste of MB
I wanna know which one of y'all left this in my garbage. I am upset.
you're literally making me feel ill.
You must be to post shittiest toonami girl
Panty isn't a Toonami girl. Coincidentally, Asuna just happens to be the second shittiest Toonami girl after her "daughter."
Here's a good one for you instead.
She could be if Demarco weren't a shit. Also nice try but
One again your shit taste has elevated itself to new and dazzling heights Boco. Kill Yourself.
Jack was a nice surprise but it won't save the block. Intruder 2 was a fun ride but led to a whole lot of nothing, and the first pickup for 2016 is an ASA antique showing Funi still isn't cooperating with the Toonami.
Alright Kev, we got 2 weeks of marathons coming up, do you really expect the block to be alive knowing that?
Stop fighting, you guys. Everyone already knows you both have shit taste and I have the best taste in the thread.
pfft, you got shit taste bro, bow to real best fem
>thinks his taste is any where near best
>he thinks traps are gay
If you wanna think so
not gay if you dick them and not the other way around
>if I put my dick in another mans ass it's not gay
I don't think shapeshifters turning into literal girls count as conventional traps.
Not sure how you'd fuck that, but dammit I'll find a way!
It was such a steaming pile of shit, I'm glad it failed
>on at a terrible time that only works for NEETs
>no advertising whatsoever
>3 absolute garbage shows and one mediocre one
>Japanese text not translated
>immediately obvious no one pre screened any of the shows
It had full OPs I guess, that's about it
>ItaZ will never get a real shot on TV
I'm sure it would be cheap as fuck, no idea why Demarco couldn't have gotten this for Jaunary
>muh Watanabe boner
It wasn't even the "so bad is good" kinda block, the discussion here sucked, the only show that was barely passable was the one with the vampires, cause it was made of cliches.
>all that blind and forced optimism these threads had for the block
>thread discussion almost non existent after first night
>that denial after the 89% drop in ratings was reported
It was a funny few weeks atleast
A little. I'm currently rewatching Is This a Zombie on my own, and it's interesting seeing what Chiller cut from each episode.
That and how accurate the ratings S&P gave them stand up to mine. Currently they're two for two.
So, were you satisfied with the ending or were you left wanting more?
>you will never experience the Nanami episodes with /Toonami General/
it hurts to live.
>Penguindrum on Toonami never
you'll just have to accept that Toonami will never
Only 95% of the time. Sometimes they are good.
>wanting a waifu who thinks this is breakfast
People meme about the block being shit which is a bit of an exaggeration, but it really is nothing to write home about either. The only thing worthwhile right now is Parasyte. Intruder 2 was a neat thing but it didn't have much substance to it.
You aren't missing much
>Get a Canadian Cartoon Network in September, which comes with Adult Swim
>All it airs on Saturday night is Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Tim and Eric.
Blame the CRTC for the lack of anime, Canadabro.
Toonami has to become Fabulous Max first to air it.
Considering all of the work and struggle that they both went through, they were better off not searching for him. Should've just realized they were better off together and bailed. That said, someone will mention that it was about the journey, not the destination. Now, I'm stuck with AgK to give a shit about on the block and the wrap-up of Intruder 2 until replacements get announced/Jack comes back.
>Canadians brag about free healthcare
>still don't have toonami
AMERICA WINS AGAIN
Well considering the guy in charge is delusional I don't think we do
>Tomonori is eternal best girl
lewd is good cqc
>inb4 it's more trash and Jack really is the only good thing
>calling special attention to the word "big" again
That's twice now. I'm gonna lose it if it's Big O S3
We might not even be getting an Attack on Titan season 2 this year. Looks like the Attack on Titan team is doing Japanese steampunk Attack on Titan with zombies in the Spring.
>cant get movie tickets for star wars until monday
>have to avoid all forms of social media until monday
>might have to skip out on this Splatfest
>might miss you guys this week
>oh well its only a marath-
>intruder 2 ending
>need to trust other people on 4chan to not spoiler the movie
Or don't be a bitch and deal with it. Spoilers shouldn't affect how you view a movie. The movie was made to be watched regardless of whether you've seen it once or a hundred times.
So im sitting here drunk playing fallout 4 and I made a raider explode into a pile of red goo with a baseball bat and honestly you guys
does Leona get her arm back somehow or some trump magic for the maybe the OCD guy is a doctor for
I CANT WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR
>getting drunk off rum and egg nog, playing Star Fox 64
>shitposting in this thread.
Goddamn I love holidays.
To answer your question, no she does not
The great thing about Sailor Moon is that, on one hand, they're already aired it and it's a staple of the network. On the other hand, they're never aired its original cut, so they have to offer a totally new way and different to experience it.
It really is the best thing they could air, for old times sake and new.
