“The Captain [Levi] gave me a message. As of now, it’s not just Titans. We’re fighting humans, too.”
– Mikasa Ackerman, Attack on Titan (Ep. 39)
The Toonami Trending Rundown for August 24-25, 2018. The summer begins to wind down as Kenny goes after Levi’s blood, while the UA Sports Festival begins its first stage, and Dragon Ball Super begins the Tournament of Power arc, among other great moments.
On Twitter, only #Toonami managed to trend in the US. On Tumblr, #Toonami would trend alongside #AttackOnTitan and #BNHA.
