“Your friend told me everything. I understand that you’re here to save a certain mademoiselle. That alone is reason enough for me to join your cause. My weapons are at your disposal. My name is…SNIPER KING!”

–          Sniper King, One Piece (Episode 257)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for June 7-8, 2014. Not an easy night for trending with the Miguel Cotto’s TKO over Sergio Martinez and the LA Kings 2OT victory over the New York Rangers among other things dominating the trends, but Toonami managed to get a slice of the social media pie of it’s own, so to speak, with 6 shows trending in either the US, Worldwide, and/or Mobile App lists (One Piece, Blue Exorcist, Black Lagoon, Beware The Batman, FMA Brotherhood, and Samurai Jack). We also got a character trend with One Piece’s Sniper King, as we were introduced to Usopp’s alter-ego. Will he help the Strawhats succeed in saving Robin? Keep tuning in and we’ll find out.

For those that didn’t get the news, we now know when Season 2 of Space Dandy will premiere: July 5th at 12:30am Eastern. And on that same night, both Attack on Titan and Bleach will have the night off for a doubleheader of Space Dandy’s Season 1 finale to get the night started.

Lastly, I’d like to say my farewell to Jose from the Toonami Faithful Podcast as he moves on to his new career at CNN. The podcast will definitely not be the same without you, and we wish you all the best.

In the meantime, tune in next week as Black Lagoon begins The Second Barrage, among the other great moments from the other shows. Till next week, enjoy E3, the NBA and Stanley Cup Finals and 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.
