“There was a moment in the middle of combat where you actually said you gave up [Cabba]. Surrender is an outcome far worse than defeat. I won’t tolerate that kind of weak behavior from a Saiyan. Never forget what you are, damn it, where is your Saiyan Pride? [And what is Saiyan Pride?] It means strength.”

–          Vegeta, Dragon Ball Super (Ep. 38)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for October 14-15, 2017. Business as usual for the better cartoon show as Vegeta gives Cabba a lesson on turning Super Saiyan, so to speak, while Gon and the crew play dodge ball against Razor for one of the remaining rare cards, and Iruka reminiscences Naruto’s troubled past, among other moments.

On Twitter, Toonami as well as every show save for Dragon Ball Super and DBZ Kai would successfully trend in the US during their respective East Coast airings. Meanwhile on Tumblr, Toonami would along with Dragon Ball Super and Hunter x Hunter.

And finally, Dragon Ball Super’s buzz continues strong as the show for the 23rd time makes it on Nielsen Social’s top 5 most talked about shows on the day on Twitter and Facebook. This also marks the 37th time a Toonami show has reached this list since we started recording this feat so far.

With the encore airing coming to an end, Attack on Titan season 2’s run comes to a close. As the wait for season 3 continues, in its place starting tonight is the continuation of the current rerun of Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex with the start of the 2nd GIG. And more changes are likely inbound as the countdown to Countdown, the next Total Immersion Event, is just 2 weeks away.

Not much else to say other than see you tonight for another round of the better cartoon show. Later.

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.
