Welcome to a special Toonami roundup! Lots of things have been happening to Adult Swim’s Saturday-night action block recently, so let’s get started.
Spike and the gang make their return to the Toonami block this Saturday (12/28) as the Toonami crew will present their favorite episodes of the critically acclaimed Cowboy Bebop in a marathon format, directly following the premiere of Trigun: Badlands Rumble.
Great news! Jason DeMarco (the head of Toonami), via a Toonami Faithful podcast has announced that the critically-acclaimed Samurai Jack will be joining the Toonami lineup starting next year. No time or day has been set in stone yet, but it will come after Fooly Cooly (FLCL)’s current run.
Just when you think Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block is done with announcements, they come up with more. Toonami announced, via their Tumblr, that Blue Exorcist will be joining the block in March 2014.
Before the premieres of Space Dandy and Naruto: Shippuden in 2014, Toonami will be wrapping up 2013 with 4 straight weeks of movies throughout the month of December. Much speculation over the movies occurred during the past couple of weeks, but now Toonami (via their Tumblr) has officially announced the movie titles!
