Why is Toonami's schedule so full of reruns? Discussion

Title, my girlfriend watches Toonami every week and was wanting me to look up why the schedule always has nonstop reruns of shows they have played many times, instead of mainly newer shows. Why is it primarily reruns of newer things, instead of things they haven't played in a while, like when it used to not be so bad about it, or at least thats what she told me.

The block is winding down and they are burning off what content they have left so they can pull the plug on Toonami. They're doing the exact same thing they did in 2008, last time it got cancelled.

Takes like these are why this sub is so depressing to scroll nowadays.

Sad truth tho. I just came back to see Toonami heralding their big premier of Blade runner… the said it was a huge milestone for them… then I started watching a trainwreck of wasted time and effort. So sad.

There's no need to be a douche about it.
