 “I’m sorry. I wanted to carry everyone just a little bit further. I had so much fun. I wish that our adventures would never end. […] I know you always treated me with love. Thank you. Even if the time we spent together was short, I’m glad that I could spend it with you.”

–     The Going Merry, One Piece (Ep. 312)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for August 15-16, 2015. It was another great week for the block’s social media buzz as Toonami and every show managed to trend in the US, in addition to both #AkameGaKill and #MichikoAndHatchin trending worldwide. One Piece also had it’s climatic end to the Enies Lobby story arc as “RIP Merry” trended in the US as the Strawhats said their farewells to their beloved ship as they gave it a Viking Funeral.

Tune in next week as One Piece begins the Post-Enies Lobby Arc, among other great moments. Until next week, stay golden and keep choosing your own path to fun adventures, even if Asuna’s mom might want otherwise.
