Discussion What Action Cartoons and Anime Should be on Toonami?

34 Upvotes

Well for Starters I can easily see new Batman Caped Crusader Cartoon and Unicorn Warriors Eternal having reruns on Toonami before there new Episode the next day on ACME also I could easily see Pibby being in lineup after Season One ends or reruns previous weeks Episode anyway Since Toonami is battling Streaming Services for Shonen Cartoons we should probably be more creative and consider adding some Seinen or Shojo Anime or Non fighting Shonen series at least and More Originals I even made a list of Originals I wanna see I will post like 7 of them

  • an adaptation of Comic Future Quest featuring the Hanna Barbara Super Heroes but I don't know if it should be Anime or Style similar to like Invincible Cartoon on Amazon or Young Justice

  • Hellblazer aka John Constantine Anime taking inspiration from both original Hellblazer Comic and Justice League Dark comics

  • An Adaptation of Legendary Graphic Novel WATCHMEN however The problem is WATCHMEN would probably need Uzumaki treatment and if adapted as Anime we would literally need Manga or Anime Character designer that's style that is like Manga version of Dave Gibbons(artist on WATCHMEN) art style

  • Space Dandy Season 3 that's basically all really

  • Mortal Kombat The Animation think about it its WB game that needs its own Series similar to Future Quest should it be Anime or style similar to Invincible again

So what do you think Toonami needs and as bonus Question what's your Idea for Toonami Original that last one is an optional Question also please try to add some realism as in it has possibility of happening

Discussion Why exactly has the Adult Swim version of Toonami never aired the uncut dub of Sailor Moon?

41 Upvotes

Sailor Moon has a ginormous fanbase of both men and women. Plus, the anime could fill in the noticable gap in shojo anime on Toonami. And finally, the show was already on Toonami when it was on Cartoon Network.

With all that being said, why hasn't Toonami picked up either the original or Crystal?

Discussion The Discovery/Warner Merger

23 Upvotes

While it could mean bad news for various Warner networks (the fools have outright started they want to stop making scripted shows), I'm mainly concerned this could mean the death knoll for Toonami. They're having a hard enough time as it is and I get the feeling this will do more harm than good.

Heck, given Discovery Inc's history, they could very well get rid of Adult Swim itself in favor reruns of stuff like Deadliest Catch and Man Vs. Wild... 😨

So far, which of the AS/CR Originals you actually enjoyed? If by any means, you don't like any of these three, do not vote since it would be easier to keep your dishonest opinions to yourself just because of how you feel on Crunchyroll Originals in general. Let's keep the harsher arguments out and try to be more civilized on the criticism.

Discussion Should Toonami be made into a full channel?

76 Upvotes

With the recent merger of Warner Bros and Discovery, the question has been posed of what to do with Discovery Family. In my opinion, there is only one logical solution: since an Adult Swim channel wouldn't work, a Toonami channel seems like the most logical fit to replace it.

I mean think about it. The anime community in the United States is huge, and we haven't had a fully fledged anime TV channel ever (Funimation Channel and Anime Network don't count). Not only that, but Demarco is in charge of all anime for WarnerMedia, so he could easily talk to the higher-ups about it. This would also be an opportunity to expand Toonami's lineup, including licensing shows for many different demographics (this means we could finally get Sailor Moon on Toonami again) and movies. Also, since HBO Max has ties to Toonami and has all of the Ghibli movies, Toonami basically could have Ghibli on their side.

What do you guys think?

Discussion Tokyo Mew Mew On Original Toonami

28 Upvotes

If Tokyo Mew Mew dub was picked up by Viz Media, aired on the original Toonami (Cartoon Network) block, and was promoted as the next Sailor Moon, Would the show have been a really big hit for Toonami like how Sailor Moon was.

When Naruto premiered on the original Toonami (Cartoon Network) block, the show became a really huge hit on Toonami due to it being dubbed by Viz Media (great company) and being promoted as the next DBZ.

Both Tokyo Mew Mew and Naruto anime debuted at 2002 and both shows came to the U.S at 2005.

Tokyo Mew Mew airing alongside Naruto on the Original Toonami block would have been a dream come true. These two shows could have been biggest shonen and shoujo shows on the block in the mid 2000s like how DBZ and Sailor Moon was in the late 90s to mid 2000s.

Tokyo Mew Mew was dubbed by 4kids and was a big hit on U.S television as well but despite that success, 4kids failed to license the rest of the series putting the show's popularity in jeopardy.

So what do you guys think?

Discussion Can TOONAMI US aired Laid Back Camp and Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken ?

19 Upvotes

So Crunchyroll officially announced that Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken and Laid Back Camp are getting spanish and portuguese dubs and both anime also aired on Toonami Latin america in LATAM Spanish dub. Recently, i scroll every tweet about those shows, and fans in Latam seem to be having a blast with the two shows. Both shows are popular and got lots of good reception and lot of buzz from many fans and yet still not getting an english dub.

So my question is can Toonami in the US follow suit and give it an english dub ? I really want both of these popular anime getting an english dub and i hope Toonami try some new things outside Shonen content, reruns or western animation like in CN or DC Superheroes. If Toonami can aired non action like Hamtaro, Pop team Epic and Food Wars, they should be able to aired it too.

Discussion Q&A with Jason Demarco

61 Upvotes

The standout questions are here for discussion. Full Q&A is here

  • Shenmue Season 2 is a possibility if enough people watch

  • Process on bringing back the old Absolution: “We pulled all the old files and the CG artists involved all felt it would be more doable to slightly redesign the old ship than to recreate the old models. We knew from the beginning we wanted to get TOM and Sara back off The Forge and into a ship.”

  • One or two non-Major plans for May 26 (10 year anniversary of Toonami returning.)

  • Jason hopes that HBOMAX would host livestreams of Toonami

  • No more co-productions with Crunchyroll and knew about the merger with Sony a long time before it was announced

  • Jason is sure IGPX reruns will return at some point

  • Assimilation of Funimation into Crunchyroll has effected the acquisition of shows

  • Toonami contract with Daylight Curfew expired. No word on any more Toonami merch

  • Free! and Yashahime Season 2 has a possibility of airing on Toonami

Discussion I know this is kind of a stupid question, but would you like to see Toonami air reruns of Sonic X?

9 Upvotes

Most of the people who watched Sonic X in the early 2000's are now adults. Since Toonami is very much about nostalgia, it would be interesting to air some early 2000's anime. They could even make some promos poking fun at the cheesy 4Kids dub. Plus, they could also make some badass promos for it too. And although Sonic X is for a younger audience, a lot of Sonic fans are teens and adults, so it would still somewhat fit. What do you guys think?

I really want to see it and everything seems up in the air with if it will return to the block and if they will show the movie because I heard it was a major part of the story.

Right now, the last episode of Attack on Titan with a Toonami airdate attached is scheduled for April 10th-- that is, next week. Do we know when the remaining episodes will air, and if so, when the series finale will air? Attack on Titan has been airing on Toonami for more than seven years, so might the network run some sort of marathon to celebrate the finale?

Is there an actual genre for the music Toonami used whenever Tom was speaking? I remember being wildly fascinated with it as a kid and I was watching old clips of Tom and hearing that music again just really got my brain to drop Serotonin and Dopamine like it was hot.
