“There you go again, Yuuki. You called me “Sis” just now, that’s what. And in the boss room, too. It’s fine, it makes me happy.”

–     Asuna Yuuki, Sword Art Online II (Ep. 21)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for August 29-30, 2015. The summer might be winding down, but it’s business as usual for the Toonami Faithful as Toonami and every show had trended in the US during their respective East Coast runs, in addition to DBZ Kai during it’s encore presentation.

Sword Art Online in particular also produced a character trend (although for some reason it came up an hour after Toonami ended in the west) with Asuna, as she and the Sleeping Knights, with the help of Kirito and Klein, successfully fended off the opposing guilds and defeated the floor’s boss, accomplishing their goal of getting their names on the shrine in the process.

Next week is Labor Day weekend, so Toonami will be marathoning the last 7 episodes of Michiko and Hatchin for the night, so for those that were late to the party, it’s a good time to catch up. Until then, stay gold as always and pour one out for Asuma-sensei.


Legend: The shows listed are ordered based on their appearance on the schedule. Show trends are listed in bold. 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 Twitter tweet counts, the listed number of tweets are also sorely based on the highest number shown based on the images on the rundown.
