“Never turn your back on family, even when they hurt you. Never let life get the better of you. And if you remember nothing else, remember to find time to eat together as a family. Even when times are rough; especially when times are rough. There’s no lack of painful things in this world, but hunger and loneliness must surely be two of the worst. Thanks to you, my precious family, I didn’t know a moment of either of those the last ninety years.”

The Toonami Trending Rundown for December 6-7, 2014. The 2nd annual month of movies is now underway, and we kick things off with the long awaited airing of Hellsing Ultimate IX in addition to an encore showing of the acclaimed film Summer Wars.

The bad news however is due to some other big events throughout the night such as UFC 181 and the finale to the college football regular season among others, only one show, Summer Wars managed to trend on Twitter. The good news is that Summer Wars trended throughout the duration of the block, meaning that it trended during both east coast and west coast airings. We also got a special character trend with Love Machine as he wreaked havoc on the Oz servers. In addition, Toonami also trended on Facebook.

Tune in next week as Toonami showcases the Hellsing Ultimate finale to go along with the presentation of The Sacred Star of Milos. Till then, congratulations to the LA Galaxy on winning the MLS Cup, and see you again next week for another round of the better cartoon show.

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.

United States Trends:

  • #SummerWars (Also during the west coast airing) [#1]
  • Love Machine (From Summer Wars) [#7]

Worldwide Trends:

Special thanks to @Brezerkfury, @Yoohoo_Dude, and others I forgot to mention for spotting some of the trends on this list.

Challenge Accepted. Only Toonami on [adult swim] on Cartoon Network.
