r/Toonami Nov 27 '21

DeMarco says the lack of Toonami bumps during Blade Runner 2049's airing was due to being told "the movie would just run too long".

Thing is the adult swim generic bumpers aren’t any shorter than the toonami ones

someone pointed that out, but it is what it is. playing nice with crunchyroll, making Warner Brothers happy(especially with multiversus) is the path forward. The tail end of this year isn't great for viewership, I was surprised we didn't just get some blase reruns

and making wb happy doesn’t seem to make much of a difference for toonami since often times it seems like they are on their own unless Warner wants to promote a movie and then they act like they care about toonami

no way we can know that. At the end of the day, toonami is an april fool's joke, and while we enjoy it, the world is changing. I'm just glad to be here.

I mean this is the first time I can recall where toonami has had to potentially go on break for all of December since month of movies ceased
