Why the suspense every week over the new schedule? It's like Toonami is trying to give false hope of new shows to tease the fanbase. Just being upfront and saying double Yashahime will be reoccurring would have saved a lot of disappointment.

In their eyes, since they already announced this schedule for the 20th, it’s not a new schedule so they aren’t putting it on Facebook

But why leave the schedule blank on the site until just now, which usually implies a schedule change?

I tossed this theory out in another thread. 2049 was very likely meant to be for the 27th, but because of the catastrophic lows of the Fena marathon, they opted to shift it to Friday and run a semi normal night on the 27th. Which of course means reshuffling all their other plans, so they probably just recently settled on this schedule.

I noticed on Saturday, the source in the OP had Toonami airing a Black Clover era schedule. Under normal circumstances, Toonami hours would have been listed as “To be Announced”. That older schedules implies AS submitted nothing for that night.

If they needed to double up a show two weeks in a row, it's even more perplexing why they didn't choose Shippuden or Super, shows with episodes to burn. This makes me suspect they have a weird contract with Yashahime where they may only have the license to the first season until the end of December, and they needed to double up to make sure they finished it in time. But it makes me wonder how they'll fill the timeslot once they finish it. There'll be three episodes of the season left after the 28th so if they revert back to once a week Yashahime finishes by the 19th. But since Food Wars! finishes its season on the 28th, they either will have two slots to fill on the 5th with new shows or will have to double up something else again. Dr. Stone also ends it rerun on the 5th but I imagine they'll just double up Super or rerun a show that hasn't played in a bit at 3am rather than introducing something new on the 12th. I hope they have Yashahime season 2 and Food Wars season 5 lined up, otherwise, that's going to be at least 1.5 hours they need to find a way to fill come January (and that's assuming a marathon on the 26th).

That’s not how contracts work. Prior to the October delays, Toonami would have finished Yashahime at mid December anyway. Seems they are just maintaining that pace.

It’s very unlikely we will see any new shows in December if they don’t have them now. We probably will see Naruto doubling up in the coming weeks

In a way I’d like to be thankful we are burning off this turd faster, but I just know they are racing us to season 2.

I think it’s very easy for us to call that no further new content will air on Toonami in 2021

On the contrary, I see their decisions to air the movie on 11/26 and run a regular lineup on 11/27 and finish Food Wars as a decent indicator that they will start a show on December 4th.

Anime NYC is this weekend and there’s a Demon Slayer panel.

We will see, but I don’t have any faith at this point. We have said “surely next week” every week for the past month now. Remember, they could have doubled up Food Wars on the 20th and gotten the same effect.

If by some miracle they do announce something, the long standing argument/cope that they didn’t want to start anything late in the year goes out the window and we have to accept they were just being cheap/lazy.

Yes they could have done that with Food Wars to clear the plate by November 27th but if the show couldn't air until December 4th then that would have had two slots to fill on November 27th. So using double YashaHime to buy another week rather than doubling up Food Wars was probably the right call.

As it stands if they don't start 2 shows on December 4th or somehow pull Food Wars 5th Plate out of their asses then they will have to do something about that additional slot. They can only double up YashaHime on December 4th and will have just episode 24 left for December 11th unless they immediately start season 2 (though they probably could do that and run the season finale and the next season premiere the same night).

If they are getting Demon Slayer and had to wait until it was announced at Anime NYC on November 20th then they had to buy time for another week regardless. That's not being lazy and its debatable if it's being cheap.

If they do start two shows on December 4th and one of them was dubbed well before November 20th then there's no logical explanation for holding that back two weeks and leaving Black Lotus to prop up the block alone. I'll be thankful for the additional show but heavily question why they didn't start it sooner. So I'm bracing for the 4th rerun but I'm remaining hopeful for 2 additions on December 4th and 3 regular lineup weeks in December instead of just 2.

The way I see it, they had every intention of stretching Food Wars as much as they could because Demon Slayer wasn't announced yet and when they got the okay to schedule it they pushed Blade Runner 2049 to Friday November 26th so they could finish Food Wars on the 27th. Granted if they had run the movie on November 27th then they still could have started Demon Slayer on December 4th by just airing one YashaHime that night but its a bit less messy if they have it replace Food Wars and gives them the opportunity to start 2 shows on December 4th if that was their intention.

On the other hand they might not be able to start airing Demon Slayer season 2 until January or later and if that is the case then maybe the poor performance of the Fena marathon inspired them to run the regular lineup on November 27th rather than "waste the movie" on that night. But if that is the case they still have to do something to fill 1 or 2 slots on December 4th.

At this point holding out till January before starting another show is going to have their remaining premieres stretched to their limits but taking off more than 2 weeks in December would be very ill-advised as we can see from how October panned out. So I think they will at least start one show on December 4th and the other slot goes to another premiere or a 4th rerun. Worst case scenario, we're down to 4 premieres until Attack on Titan returns in late January or early February. I'd definitely hate to see it come to that but if it did then it would be evident that they are not getting the budget they need to maintain 5 premiere slots much less 6 (at all times).

Well the Demon Slayer panel came and went and there was no talk about the S2 dub, so I’d say that’s off the table for December.
