“If you’re numbers are high enough, you’re invincible. MMO’s that use leveling systems are unfair that way.”

          Kirito, Sword Art Online (Episode 04)

A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away…

There is a block of cartoons on cable called “Toonami”. Can I watch that or would it be considered insensitive?

The Toonami Trending Rundown for August 17-18, 2013. A New Hope for Toonami arises as we welcome in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and we get ourselves another perfect night of trending as every show trended in the US and everything between One Piece and Star Wars TCW trending worldwide, making sure Star Wars began it’s run on a good note. We also got some character trends with Black Star, as he and the gang read a rather depressing piece of poetry from Crona, and Kirito(the first for SAO), as he protected Silica against Rosalia and the Titan’s Hand…and getting some “eyefuls” from Silica as well, perhaps.

In scheduling news: According to the backdoor schedule, we know know when Eva 2.22 will air: August 31st at 12am-3:45 am Eastern, which means everything from Bleach to Big O will be getting the night off then. There will also be a 15 minute “special” between the movie’s end and when FMA Brotherhood starts, which Jason isn’t telling us what it is as of now.

Other than that, I don’t have much else to say other than I’ll see you again next week for another round of some of the best action oriented anime and cartoons around. Stay gold.

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.
