Toonami is BACK.
No really. This time it's not a joke.
This Saturday at Midnight ET/PT, Toonami becomes a true part of Adult Swim.
New shows? Returning [as] favorites? Yes. Are we ready? Yes.
Cowboy Bebop - With remastered Intro and Ending
Casshern Sins - in HD
Deadman Wonderland - in HD
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - All 5 Intros (mostly) in HD
Ghost in the Shell: SAC
All the new packaging, custom intros, promos and game reviews will make their way here, of course.
BUT. This time we're doing something different.
Seriously. Don't lazily come to TDA Saturday night or Sunday morning looking for all the cool Toonami bumps and such. They won't be here yet. Go find your TV and watch Toonami yourself. If you're a Nielsen family, watch it twice.
This incarnation of Toonami desperately needs ratings if it's going to thrive.
Do your duty.

Which is odd, Deadman Wonderland's manga is still going on, but the anime only has 12 bones. Either there wasn't enough interest to continue the anime, or rights to Deadman Wonderland to produce the anime didn't last long. Either way, I'm still going to enjoy the hell out of it.
And if I recall, Kpa had something about Casshern Sins on his website long ago, I never checked the anime out because I was dealing with real life matters. Well no longer! When you have anime that resembles Cyborg 009 in terms of visual presentation and action then color me interested.

Well yeah, that should go without saying just from the timeslot. It's also pretty obvious this isn't exactly the Toonami from way back. The people that watched Toonami back in the day are the ones excited for its return. We've matured, with pretty much all of us that grew up with it being in our 20s by now. This Toonami is aimed at us, and so is more mature as well, as evidenced by "Hey, it's TOM. Toonami's back, bitches."
Just a completely random note, but does anyone else find it cool that they're even going with the traditional commercial break setup that it used back in the day? With one commercial break around 13-15 minutes in and then another one after the show ends around 25 minutes in. I just thought that was a nice touch.
Also, I was thinking, Soul Eater would be PERFECT for them to air. It's licensed by Funimation, too, so I'm pretty sure they have access to it.
