I'd imagine tomorrow or Friday are the last days we could reasonably expect a show to replace SAO instead of there being a rerun or block contraction.

Mob Psycho 100 was the closest I think I've seen between announcement and block premier and that was the Friday a week before it was run IIRC.

Remember when everyone was tweeting out that the Reigen recap would be shown during the SAO premiere. Wonder what that was all about

So LeSean Thomas of The Boondocks and The Legend of Korra has an anime called Cannon Busters coming out and we got the release date, August 15th.


I'm getting some Trigun x Afro Samurai vibes.

That’s how they announced Attack on Titan iirc, just an out of nowhere commercial the week before it aired.
Could also be a case of they are trying to negotiate a show up to the last minute.

Might have a deal in place to show X show if they can't get the rights for Y, and are working with the same company in both cases (both sides knowing toonami wants Y more than X) but they are having price issues.

It also doesn't include the sub version. The spirit of ADV lives on.
.....um, okay, what the hell? Are they waiting to do a double pack of Alt & Pro before having blu-ray or subs? Or a "Complete Series" that includes the original as well?

I wouldn't mind having all 3 seasons as a bundle, but mainly, my friend still wants to see both new seasons & he's been waiting for a home release.

Crap, speaking of home releases, I keep forgetting both Jojo Part 4 part 1 & Nichijou dubbed is out this month, but my budget is tight at the moment & I still need to sell my blu-ray/dvd combo of the Nichijou sub.

Wouldn’t some of the Re:Zero episodes be too long when they skip the opening and ending? Plus, I think one of the episodes was given more screen time.

Thats on my watch later list
I quite enjoy it and I think it would be an interesting fit for Toonami, especially in places like this thread that discuss shows.

The middle is a tad rough but overall the series is great. Plus season 2 is coming next year (most likely in spring)


of course I'm obviously still hoping that
will take the slot :P

if they can make Gen:lock's 31 minute episodes work I'm sure they can make the odd Re:zero episode that goes 25 minutes work.

Re:zero would be ok if not for the fact I'm sick of Isekai after SAO.
technically SAO isn't Isekai (It's isekai influenced or inspired though :P), they don't go to another world just another reality on the same world :P
especially in the seasons where they can freely enter the games and not.

anyways....

You all should watch this

I believe so, doesn't it start by them legitimately being sucked into a different world by the name of the Digital world?

At the very least their real bodies are in there aren't they? with SAO while you can die from dying in the game, their real body still isn't in that "other world" :P

but again not 100% on digimon because I was team pokemon as a kid :P

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's technically a world in another dimension.

I had no idea that Dragonball was ending so "soon". Time flies by in half the framerate when you're not paying attention.

To be fair it might not be ending.
Sept is a pretty decent bet for the next Dragon Ball series, and Funimation can easily dub things in 3 weeks anymore, so there is a good chance even if it's a late sept show they can just continue on Toonami with the continuation of Super.

People have been saying "New Super soon" for like half a year now based off no evidence to my knowledge.

The only thing Toei has said is that they're doing a Broly movie sequel.
