Frieza: “Alright, you have our attention. What brings you here?”

Trunks: “To kill you two. What else?”

The Toonami Trending Rundown for January 30-31, 2016. We kick off DBZ Kai’s Cell Arc on a good note as Toonami and every show had successfully trended in the US, in addition to the #SentaiHour for the third week in a row during Parasyte.

Both DBZ Kai and Akame ga Kill would also produce some character trends. DBZ brought us Frieza, as his remnants are found by King Cold, gets cyberized, and heads to Earth to get revenge on Goku, as well as Trunks as he gets in Frieza’s way from doing so. Akame meanwhile gave us Mine, as she successfully defeats Budo, but would eventually succumb to her wounds during the battle, as well as Tatsumi as the Night Raid successfully retrieve him from the grasps of Esdeath and the empire and he gives Mine a farewell kiss.

We’re coming down the stretch with Akame with the final three episodes on the horizon, and with the way things are going, you don’t want to miss how this ends up. Until next week, stay gold as always.


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.
