“There’s no reason to be surprised. As expected, I am the one still standing. And they are the ones who fell before me, like insects. You’re fools if you expected some other outcome than this. Welcome to harsh reality, children. There are no surprises here, and no uncertainty. Also, there is no fear.”

          Asura, Soul Eater (Episode 50)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for March 8-9, 2014. Daylight Savings has begun and while we had a bit of a rough night for trending with SDSU’s 16 point comeback over UNM, Canelo’s KO victory over Angulo, and the start of the MLS season, among other things, things still went pretty well regardless, as Space Dandy, every show between One Piece and Samurai Jack, and Sym-Bionic Titan trended in the US; making sure that Titan returns on a good note. In addition, Samurai Jack also trended worldwide as well.

Furthermore, both Blue Exorcist and Soul Eater each also produced a character trend with Rin (as he joins True Cross Academy and has a brotherly argument with Yukio) as well as Black Star (as he and Death the Kidd managed to hold off Asura until Maka and Soul’s return).

Tune in next week as Soul Eater reaches it’s grand finale, among other great moments from the other shows. You don’t want to miss this. Till next week, 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.
