Updates on Nami from @ToonamiAsia

By Paul Pescrillo

Toonami 4

We here at ToonamiFaithful.com are dedicated to bringing you Toonami from around the world. To review for those that don’t know, Toonami Asia is a channel overseas that is similar to our Toonami. However, this Toonami has its own TOM of sorts and this one is a woman. Her name is Nami and she looks completely different. Glenn Bartlett, the man in charge of Toonami Asia, told us that Nami exists in the same universe as TOM so we hope one day TOM & SARA can meet Nami. Anyways, we have some content from Toonami Asia on the story of Nami. Below are 3 promos for the origins of Nami. A 3rd promo is forth coming along with something else we can’t disclose yet. Let’s just say you will like what is. Let us know what you think of her story by commenting below. Also, if you have questions about the videos, please post you questions on those videos on the YouTube videos. The producers from Toonami Asia, Arkham and Blackgate, will answer them.

Second Short Promo

  • NonHyped

    that would cool

  • dragonzord1993

    Awesome!

    I especially love the Origin promo. Seeing all those characters existing in the same universe brings a smile to my face.

    Sorry but Glenn Bartlett isn’t part our Toonami US staff, so the whole “Nami exists in the same universe as TOM” is bull crap. Our Toonami crew has no relation to Toonami Asia, its a Turner Broadcast decision. I’d rather not see Tom and Sara meet Nami, since Jason Demarco and such weren’t part of any of the decisions. Not to sound snappy, but its like someone using your story and characters for their own purposes. Yes Turner owns the rights to it all, but as original creators it can’t be fun knowing someone is editing the story and world you’ve built. Asia can keep it’s spin off Toonami over in Asia.

      We haven’t heard Jason DeMarco comment on any of this yet, so for all we know, he could agree with the “Nami exists in the same universe as TOM” statement. We’ll just have to wait until the next Q&A and ask him then. If he does agree, then… sorry.

        It just a matter of opinion, I’m personally not a fan of Toonami Asia. It’s just taking the Toonami name and making something of it in another region. He has said that they are not involved with Toonami Asia so it be reason to believe that the two Toonami’s are separate and not involved with one another.

        • dragonzord1993

          The only differences between our Toonami and Toonami Asia are that one’s a television block with an emphasis on anime, while the other is a television channel with an emphasis on western animation. They both still have the purpose of airing action-oriented animation (or “building you a better cartoon show”, if you will). And since both are ultimately owned by Turner, it’s comparable to Batman having two storylines, each written by a different writer, which isn’t a bad thing.

          As I said, wait until DeMarco officially comments himself.

      Whether you agree with the statement or not, this part of the article is definitely notable:

      “A 3rd promo is forth coming along with something else we can’t disclose yet. Let’s just say you will like what is.”

      Why all the secrecy? There’s clearly something going on here.

    • PokeNirvash

      I really doubt you’re part of the Toonami staff.

      • Zero

        No he isn’t. And the article says nothing about him being on the us staff. And he is completely wrong

        • SkinnerEva .

          Sorry for voicing my opinion

          • Zero

            Your opinion is fine but you kinda claimed like you’re part of the staff

          • SkinnerEva .

            I’m not, just voicing my opinion about how what a creator creates something and its owned by a company, the property/work then can be used without the concern of the original creator is all. As someone who likes to write, i wouldn’t like it if someone took the ideas i made and ran off with them is all. Sorry to mix up the two in the initial post.

            Well to clear up any confusion. Toonami does now about Toonami Asia and is owned by Turner, I think. So ownership they are far in the clear. Also the story between Tom and Nami is huge. But its a good point. meeting does seems unlikely

  • Joshua Taylor

    why wouldn’t you want Nami to come to America and meet Tom & Sara even if just for a minute.

  • Joshua Taylor

    She’s Toonami, Toonami or Toonami Asia it’s still Toonami. do you think Russia has a Toonami what about Australia? Tom can’t be broadcasted all over the world. I like to think of her as a new family member to help Tom&Sara in the other side of the world. I hope that Toonami s from all over the world not to many though are made and then they come together and have a Toonami Wada

  • Joshua Taylor

    toonami reunion.

  • Joshua Taylor

    Dragonzord I like the way that guy thinks.
