“Tatsumi, if they manage to kill you, you aren’t that much of a man. But you’re stronger than that, aren’t you? You’re powerful, a survivor. I feel it, Tatsumi. I can’t help but believe our paths might cross again. No, ill make sure of it. And when they do, ill force you to accept my feelings for you. I’m coming for you, my love.”

–     Esdeath, Akame ga Kill! (Ep. 10)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for October 17-18, 2015. A pretty good night for trending all things considered as Toonami and every show had managed to trend in the US during their respective East Coast airings, in addition to #DBZKai during it’s encore presentation and Toonami trending on Tumblr. We also got a character trend in Esdeath (the first of such for Akame ga Kill), as she attempts to abduct Tatsumi for her own romantic endeavors, but manages to escape.

Not much else to say other than see you again next week 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.

Notes and Other Statistics:

Special thanks to @JMB_70056, @mmorse1017 and others I forgot to mention for spotting some of the trends on this list.

Not too shabby for a service bot. Only Toonami on [adult swim] on Cartoon Network.
