“The boy’s a mystery. I feel most compelled to help him, I almost nearly let it slip, then. The real hunter exam…isn’t over just yet.”
– Satotz, Hunter x Hunter (Ep. 21)
The Toonami Trending Rundown for September 24-25, 2016. We complete Hunter x Hunter’s Hunter Exam story arc as every show successfully trended in the US during their respective East Coast airings. In addition, Toonami, One Punch Man, and One Piece would also trend on tumblr.
Toonami started off the block this week with a tribute to Moltar and Clay Martin Croker, who passed away last week. A great tribute from the Toonami crew that I’m sure Clay would be very proud of, and the response and tributes from fans would be enough to have Moltar become top trend in the US as a result. If you missed it or want to see it again, check it out below.
Toonami also showcased the new music video for All My Children by Gucchi Mane. You can check it out below.
Some good news in regards to One Punch Man. During the “One Punch Man Fall Festival” event on Sunday, it was announced that that a second season is indeed in the works. A release date is yet to be announced. With this as well as future developments for other Toonami shows, we’ll be having a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
If you haven’t heard the news, as part of a regular tradition during the holiday season, Adult Swim will be giving the 8pm Eastern hour to regular Cartoon Network programming. However, to accommodate the move, starting next week Toonami will be starting at midnight for the foreseeable future. The lineup of shows will stay the same, but every show will air 30 minutes later (ex. DBZ starts at 12 while Parasyte airs at 3.) In addition, due to the broadcast rights for Parasyte ending a little early, Toonami will be showcasing the final 3 episodes of the encore run next week. Toonami will be temporarily expanded to 4am so the show can be successfully completed.
Next week will also showcase the penultimate episode of One Punch Man season 1 while Hunter x Hunter begins the Zoldyck Family story arc, among other great moments. And of course, the countdown to Jojo’s long awaited arrival continues which is just 3 weeks away. See you again next week, and may your oven stay forever lit.
