“I am a soldier, and I have dedicated my heart towards the restoration of humanity, sir. Nothing can make me prouder than dying for such a noble cause. If we were to use [Eren]’s Titan ability and conbine it with the manpower we have left, I believe that we can do it. We can retake this city. For humanity’s glory and what little time I have left, I will advocate his stragetic value!”

–          Armin Arlert, Attack on Titan (Episode 10)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for July 12-13, 2014. Rough night for trending with the buzz of Canelo’s victory over Lara and the NBA Free agency and the buzz of the World Cup final dominating the trends, but Toonami was able to get it’s slice of the social media pie with Titan, Blue Exorcist, Black Lagoon, Naruto, FMA Brotherhood and Samurai Jack trending in the US, Samurai Jack only trending worldwide, and Toonami and every show between Attack on Titan and Black Lagoon trending in the mobile app. On Tumblr, Attack on Titan also trended.

We also got a character trend with Armin from Attack on Titan as he manages to appeal Eren’s case to use his Titan abilities to help humanity.

For those wondering why Criminal Threats was repeated instead of a new weekly goodie, it was revealed that it couldn’t air due to some technical issues beyond Toonami’s control, but it should be airing next week. On the other hand, we did get a new set of bumpers, so it’s not a total loss.

Tune in next week as Sym-Bionic Titan showcases it’s final episode, among other great moments from the other shows. Other than that, congratulations to Germany on winning the World Cup, and till next week, 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. 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.
