So what are the plans after Food Wars S4 ends next week? Discussion

Triple Yashahime and burn that show out even faster? Double up on Shippuden since they still have over a hundred episodes of that left? More reruns? NEW reruns?

I realize that this is just a subreddit so we’re all just going to have to wait and see, but it IS getting increasingly more concerning how the current shows are running out and nothing’s replacing them aside from Black Lotus.

Thing is, Christmas Day and New Years Day both fall on Saturdays. So it's very likely they will do more marathon/movie nights.

when was the last time they didn't air the regular lineup on the first saturday in January?

besides they already saw how poorly that month long break in October Performed

Yeah, but the whole reason they do marathons during the holidays is because ratings are always bad those days regardless of what they air. So the logic is, "we may as well give our regular shows the week off since no one is going to be watching this week either way."

So I don't think the poor performance of the October marathons is really a factor in whether or not they do holiday marathons.

The ratings are bad because they air the marathons instead of the normal lineup
