“Rock, sometimes it’s best to look the other way. […] You can’t just undo what has been done to her. If only someone had shown em a little kindness, they might have gone to school, made friends and lived happily ever after, who knows right? But…that didn’t happen, did it? I’m sorry, but stories like this don’t have happy endings.”

–          Benny, Black Lagoon (Episode 15)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for June 28-29, 2014. Pretty good night for trending, all things considered, as every show with the exception of FMA Brotherhood, Star Wars TCW, and Sym-Bionic Titan trended in the US. Attack on Titan and Samurai Jack also trended in the mobile app as well.

In addition, we got some special character trends from Attack on Titan (Eren, as he gets chastised by the army for his newfound Titan powers), Naruto Shippuden (Sasori, as he continues on his puppet duel with Sakura and Lady Chiyo), One Piece (Franky, as he has a brawl with Nero), and Black Lagoon (Balalaika and the Vampire Twins, as Balalaika successfully extracts her revenge on the twins, while we were treated to a rather gruesome flashback of the twin’s past in addition to their gruesome passing).

Tune in next week as Space Dandy begins it’s long awaited 2nd season, among other great moments from the other shows. And just to let you know, both Attack on Titan and Bleach will have the night off to make way. Till next week, have a happy Independence Day, and let’s go Team USA.

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.
