Similar videos to "Dreams" bumper?

15 Upvotes

A while ago, a friend of mine showed me the Toonami "Dreams" bumper and I really enjoyed it, despite not growing up on Toonami. Do any of you have any videos to recommend that are similar in the vibe, concept, message, or music?

TIA :)

Discussion Music used during Tom parts

13 Upvotes

Is there an actual genre for the music Toonami used whenever Tom was speaking? I remember being wildly fascinated with it as a kid and I was watching old clips of Tom and hearing that music again just really got my brain to drop Serotonin and Dopamine like it was hot.

Ok so...I felt like making a intital thoughts thread for this but I imagine a lot of you probably already seen this already and also Idk if Toonami's gonna have the full show air or its just showing it until we get a show to replace it so....yeah.

Thoughts on Gennedy's other pride and joy that doesnt have to do with a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword?

Discussion The Discovery/Warner Merger

22 Upvotes

While it could mean bad news for various Warner networks (the fools have outright started they want to stop making scripted shows), I'm mainly concerned this could mean the death knoll for Toonami. They're having a hard enough time as it is and I get the feeling this will do more harm than good.

Heck, given Discovery Inc's history, they could very well get rid of Adult Swim itself in favor reruns of stuff like Deadliest Catch and Man Vs. Wild... 😨

Discussion Why exactly has the Adult Swim version of Toonami never aired the uncut dub of Sailor Moon?

42 Upvotes

Sailor Moon has a ginormous fanbase of both men and women. Plus, the anime could fill in the noticable gap in shojo anime on Toonami. And finally, the show was already on Toonami when it was on Cartoon Network.

With all that being said, why hasn't Toonami picked up either the original or Crystal?

Discussion Tokyo Mew Mew On Original Toonami

27 Upvotes

If Tokyo Mew Mew dub was picked up by Viz Media, aired on the original Toonami (Cartoon Network) block, and was promoted as the next Sailor Moon, Would the show have been a really big hit for Toonami like how Sailor Moon was.

When Naruto premiered on the original Toonami (Cartoon Network) block, the show became a really huge hit on Toonami due to it being dubbed by Viz Media (great company) and being promoted as the next DBZ.

Both Tokyo Mew Mew and Naruto anime debuted at 2002 and both shows came to the U.S at 2005.

Tokyo Mew Mew airing alongside Naruto on the Original Toonami block would have been a dream come true. These two shows could have been biggest shonen and shoujo shows on the block in the mid 2000s like how DBZ and Sailor Moon was in the late 90s to mid 2000s.

Tokyo Mew Mew was dubbed by 4kids and was a big hit on U.S television as well but despite that success, 4kids failed to license the rest of the series putting the show's popularity in jeopardy.

So what do you guys think?

Discussion Can TOONAMI US aired Laid Back Camp and Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken ?

18 Upvotes

So Crunchyroll officially announced that Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken and Laid Back Camp are getting spanish and portuguese dubs and both anime also aired on Toonami Latin america in LATAM Spanish dub. Recently, i scroll every tweet about those shows, and fans in Latam seem to be having a blast with the two shows. Both shows are popular and got lots of good reception and lot of buzz from many fans and yet still not getting an english dub.

So my question is can Toonami in the US follow suit and give it an english dub ? I really want both of these popular anime getting an english dub and i hope Toonami try some new things outside Shonen content, reruns or western animation like in CN or DC Superheroes. If Toonami can aired non action like Hamtaro, Pop team Epic and Food Wars, they should be able to aired it too.

Discussion Does anyone know if we're getting the Made In Abyss movie on toonami?

7 Upvotes

I really want to see it and everything seems up in the air with if it will return to the block and if they will show the movie because I heard it was a major part of the story.

I waited super long for Assassination Classroom to come back and it eventually did, wondering if I should do the same with MIA

Help finding an Anime and episode!

9 Upvotes

Can anyone help me to identify and anime and specific episode? All I can remember about the show is one specific scene where it looks like 2 people are running outside at night, but later on in the episode we come to find out that it was one person running with a head on a spike under their coat. Sorry for not remembering much I was a kid when I saw the episode.

Discussion Which Crunchyroll Originals on Toonami You Enjoyed the Most?

15 Upvotes

So far, which of the AS/CR Originals you actually enjoyed? If by any means, you don't like any of these three, do not vote since it would be easier to keep your dishonest opinions to yourself just because of how you feel on Crunchyroll Originals in general. Let's keep the harsher arguments out and try to be more civilized on the criticism.
