“[I want to be a collector] because of something my father said. “When I die, follow the illegal coils,” that’s what he told me. He told me that if I saw a pillar of light, I would know he was no longer in this world. So I can’t bring him back, but I can follow father’s final instructions. If you give me the chance, please I have to know what it was what he wanted me to find.”

The Toonami Trending Rundown for March 5-6, 2016. A good night for Toonami’s social media buzz as every show had trended in the US during their respective East Coast airings in addition to #DBZKai during it’s encore presentation.

We also got some character trends with Goku as during his battle with Android 19, he begins to succumb to the heart virus that Trunks had forewarned him about (and apparently forgetting to take the medicine Trunks gave him), as well as Mira (the first of such for Dimension W) as she partners up with Kyouma and the collectors to begin to fulfill Shido’s last wish and encountering the famed “Loser” in their first mission together.

Tune in next week as One Piece begins the Thriller Bark arc, among other great moments. Until next week, 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.

You can’t spell Toonami without You and I. Only Toonami on [adult swim] on Cartoon Network.
