“Not long ago, someone had a passing thought. All life is sacred and must be protected.”

–     Shinichi Izumi, Parasyte (Ep. 01)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for October 3-4, 2015. We welcome in Parasyte into the block as every show had managed to trend in the US including #DBZKai during it’s encore presentation as well as #Parasyte during it’s west coast airing. Both DBZ and Parasyte also produced some character trends, with Goku (as he is fully recovered from his injuries and begins his showdown with Frieza), Vegeta (as Frieza kills him after getting intimidated by him and he tells Goku the truth about the fate of Planet Vegeta), and Migi (as he infects himself into Shinichi’s arm).

In Sword Art Online news, it has just been announced that a new feature film for the series is currently in production. We don’t have much info on it as of yet, though we do know that it will be a completely new story written by Reki Kawahara instead of just being adapted from the novels.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the beginning of the Evangelion series. With this being the year Evangelion takes place, this show has given us many fond memories and we sure look forward to see what’s next. And speaking of Evangelion, Funimation is planning to release the long awaited 3.33 film in early 2016.

In the meantime we are just a month away until the launch of Intruder 2 and things are looking up. Until next week, stay gold as always.


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.
