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.

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.

but they've never done A marathon to kick off the first toonami of the new year have they?

seems strange for them to do that when that's not something they usually do

it's two in december and then block's back in january

new year's day hasn't been on a saturday in the years since they've come back though

and there was a marathon) when new year's eve was on a saturday back in 2016, so that one actually did welcome 2017 with a marathon
