“[Revy] defeated them all singlehandedly. Incredible. Even though I was saying the words, a completely different thought had crossed my mind. I can’t even imagine how her life was shattered that made her who she is today. But I must be pretty broken myself to sit here in awe, praising her for her powers of destruction.”

The Toonami Trending Rundown for April 5-6, 2014. Not an easy night for trending with the buzz of the Final Four in addition to Anna Kendrick hosting SNL, but fortunately Toonami’s buzz was better in comparison to last week as every show between One Piece to OG Naruto and FMA Brotherhood to IGPX as well as Sym-Bionic Titan trended in the US.

We also got some special trends from Bleach, One Piece, Blue Exorcist, and Black Lagoon with the Soul Society (as Oko is resurrected with the fusion of Nozomi and Kageroza and proclaims the destruction of the society), Franky (as CP9 invades his shipyard and we were treated to a flashback of his past), Shiemi (as she tries possibly in vein to form a relationship with Izumo, meets her familiar Mee, and manages to heal Paku from the demon’s temptate), and Revy (as she single-handedly destroys a pirate gang hired by Chin, whom was out for vengeance on Dutch).

In related news, Space Dandy began it’s rerun as the wait till new episodes in July begins, while tonight saw a total re-haul of Toonami’s logo and on screen graphics possibly to coincide with the bumper re-haul Adult Swim got with it’s expansion to 8pm, which begun last Monday. We also got a review of Titanfall for the Xbox One and PC and received a 9 out of 10. Toonami was rather unsure if an Xbox 360 version will be coming, but for those that are wondering, it’s coming out this Tuesday.

Other than that, I’ll see you again next week for another round of the better cartoon show. Later.

Legend: The number next to the listed trend represents the highest it trended on the list (not counting the promoted trend), judging only by the images placed in the rundown. For the mobile app trends, the listed number of tweets are also sorely based on the highest number shown based on the images on the rundown.
