“It’s not about Gods and Mortals. You don’t believe in anything but yourself [Zamasu], and we won’t let you win! This is the power of mortals fighting for each other. The power of believing something bigger than just you!“
– Trunks, Dragon Ball Super (Ep. 66)
The Toonami Trending Rundown for June 9-10, 2018. Week 2 of FLCL Progressive is in the books as Goku and Vegeta fuse into Vegeto to counter Zamasu Black, while Aizawa gives Deku’s class a beginner’s quirk test, and Haruko goes after Hidomi and Ide, so to speak, while Jinyu tries to stop her, among other moments.
On Twitter, Toonami would trend in the US alongside #FLCL while on tumblr, #Toonami would trend alongside #BNHA.
This week’s feature was a game review of Far Cry 5, available on all modern gaming platforms with the exception of the Switch. It received an 8 out of 10 score.
Of course, this week was a big week for video games as E3 took place in LA as gamers around the world enjoyed some of the big gaming announcements. One game of interest for the Toonami and greater anime communities announced at E3 was Jump Force, an upcoming fighting game from Bandai Namco featuring many of Shonen Jump’s famed characters. It is expected to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
This trending rundown was posted a week late due to some personal and real life issues on my hand. Apologies for the inconvenience. We’ll have this week’s trending rundown posted sometime later today or tomorrow, and we’ll see you again on Saturday as always for another round of the better cartoon show.
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.
