The Toonami Trending Rundown for September 5-6, 2015. With it being the Labor Day weekend, and the College Football season underway, naturally it was expected to be a down night for the block’s ratings and social media buzz. As a result, Toonami decided to marathon episodes 4-10 of Michiko and Hatchin, which resulted in #MichikoAndHatchin trending throughout the block during it’s East Coast run and into it’s West Coast run as well, even becoming the top trend at one point.

For those that haven’t heard the news from DragonCon, we now know when Parasyte is going to air: October 3rd at 1am Eastern. In addition, Intruder 2 will be a 7 part series with episode 1 airing at November 7th at midnight, with each consecutive episode airing every Saturday during DBZ’s commercial break. The long awaited comic will also be posted on November 7th, and the Mobile App will launch at November 2nd.

In the meantime, we’re coming down to the final three episodes of Sword Art Online’s Mother’s Rosario arc, and you definitely don’t want to miss what’s next. Until next week, have a Happy Labor Day and stay gold.


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.

United States Trends:

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