“Have no fear, students. I am here!”

–          All Might, My Hero Academia (Ep. 11)

This Toonami Trending Rundown is a double-feature for the weeks of July 14-15, 2018 and July 21-22, 2018. As the comic and pop culture community converges onto San Diego for Comic-Con, it would also be a big night for Toonami as Tomura Shigaraki leads a villain assault against UA Academy, while Asta and Gauche have to stop a mass kidnapping of a village of children (that includes Marie) and Sasuke battles against Danzo to avenge his family, among other great moments.

It would be a tough few weeks of trending for various reasons, as during both weeks, only #Toonami as well as some form of a My Hero Academia-related hashtag would trend on tumblr.

Of course, the main reason why the trending rundown for the past few weeks have been late is because I myself was at San Diego Comic-Con to bring you some of the news from that weekend. The big news that relates to Toonami from the past few weeks are that both Attack on Titan season 3 and Boruto will be joining the better cartoon show starting on August 18 along with JoJo’s Part 4 and September 29 respectively. In addition, FUNimation and Toei have unveiled the trailer for the next Dragon Ball film, Dragon Ball Super Broly.

We’ll have a report on the events at SDCC as well as this week’s trending as soon as I get to them, and until next time, congratulations to France on winning the World Cup, and stay gold.

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.
