  1. In this thread, we discuss the Nielsen Ratings for Toonami shows and occasionally other [adult swim] shows that are posted on websites like showbuzzdaily.com and programminginsider.com. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL AND DO NOT POST LINKS TO ILLEGAL SITES!!!!! [thank you] First, a blast from the past!! HERE'S what Toonami's leading shows did on this day 4 years ago: "CABLE HIGHLIGHTS: As we’ve noted before, we’re relying on readers telling us that the anime shows running on Adult Swim are originals in their current versions (although in some cases the network lists them as reruns), so we have no way of knowing whether Adult Swim is repeating its own episodes. That being said, the top cable “original” of the night was actually DRAGON BALL Z, up an impressive 0.25 from last week to 0.98 and with 2M total viewers. AKAME GA KILL, which is on the chart, followed at 0.93. MICHIKO & HATCHIN was up 0.23 from last week to 0.74, with 1.5M total viewers. SWORD ART ONLINE was up 0.17 to 0.64, as per the chart. NARUTO rose 0.15 to 0.56, with 1M total viewers. ATTACK ON TITAN grew by 0.11 to 0.47, with 900K total viewers. ONE PIECE gained 0.04 to 0.45, with 850K total viewers." Now, just under a week ago on 8/3/2019, here's how Toonami is doing: "Adult Swim’s line-up performed as follows: DRAGON BALL at 0.31 and 0.12/343K & 0.11/310K, compared to last week’s 0.34 and 0.12/314K & 0.13/287K, GEN LOCK at 0.17, FIRE FORCE down 0.02 to 0.15/327K, LUPIN THE 3RD down 0.01 to 0.13, FOOD WARS up 0.02 to 0.16, BLACK CLOVER down 0.01 to 0.16/336K, BORUTO down 0.02 to 0.15, NARUTO steady at 0.14/302K, MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM down 0.02 to 0.13/270K, MY HERO ACADEMIA down 0.05 to 0.12/303K, and GEMUSETTO MACHU PICCHU down 0.04 to 0.08/195K." 3 major differences: EARLIER start time (11 PM vs. Midnight) LOWER total viewers, adults 18-34, 18-49 MUCH LOWER "girl power" Female 12-34 viewers At least the older viewers (50+) viewership is about the same at about 1:30 AM
  2. This really bizarre news just in from FUNimation (well, actually, this news story is dated 9/5/19) regarding a screening of the final episode of Dragon Ball Super at New York Comic Con on Sunday, October 6th: https://www.funimation.com/blog/2019/09/05/my-hero-academia-new-york-guide-to-funimation-at-new-york-comic-con-nycc-2019/?utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=092019-cv-nycc2019&utm_source=&utm_content=blog&utm_nooverride=1 Now reading between the lines, it's probably a sneak peek, which means that the final episode of Dragon Ball Super will have to air on Toonami after that. So, it would be airing at 11 PM on October 12th if that's the case, with a brand new show, or maybe its 2nd episode, following at 11:30 (and that's probably Demon Slayer). Now, we've got only 4 episodes of DBS left, so how can that be done? The answer is I'm anticipating another "one-time cut" to Toonami, like what we saw with the April Fool's Day stunt in 2017 where they aired Rick & Morty Season 3's first episode all night, for "Pete Smith night". He retired from Adult Swim in 2017, and ever since, [as] has aired a mixture of Bob's Burgers (which they're losing soon-ish) and The Brak Show (so I guess after that it will just all be Brak) on September 28th. So, I posit that it's likely that Bob's Burgers and/or Brak will air before Toonami on 9/28, then Toonami will begin at Midnight on 9/28 (technically 9/29, not Pete Smith day anymore) with Dr. Stone. So, Pete Smith gets his night and Dr. Stone gets to begin Toonami for once at Midnight. But this would only happen for one night, as on October 5th, DBS returns with its next-to-last episode, probably followed by Demon Slayer at 11:30. And then on October 12th, we finally see the English Dub of the final episode of Dragon Ball Super, followed by Episode 2 of Demon Slayer. Meanwhile, Gundam The Origin would have ended at 3 AM on 9/28-9/29, so Lupin can move up to 3 AM on 10/5 and the rerun of MHA would follow at 3:30--BUT I DON'T THINK TOONAMI ENDS AT 4 AM! Instead, we would actually get DOUBLE MHA both that night and October 12th so Toonami stays with its 4:30 end for a while longer, and so MHA Season 3 can finish up its rerun leading to the dub premiere debut of MHA Season 4 at 11 PM on October 19th! As for what would happen to 3:30-4:30 AM on that night, reruns of gen:LOCK and AOT I guess??? So what do y'all think? It's contrived, but it actually kinda makes sense--maybe too much sense?
  3. In case you haven't heard, the Marathon Stream may be gone, but in its place, just in time for today, the 7th Anniversary of Toonami's return to the airwaves, there are several shows in which every episode so far aired on Toonami TV is now streaming on the [as] app! (Cable log-in IS required). They are, in alphabetical order: Attack on Titan Black Clover Cowboy Bebop Dragon Ball Super FLCL Ghost In The Shell Lupin The 3rd Part 4 One-Punch Man Outlaw Star Pop Team Epic Samurai Jack Sand Whale And Me Space Dandy The Promised Neverland Additionally, these shows don't have every episode aired on Toonami, but they do have several seasons: Dragon Ball Z Kai (1-33 + several from Final Chapters) Hunter x Hunter (from Episode 91) JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (Parts 3 & 4) Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans (Season 2) Naruto Shippuden (Since the 5 Kage arc) Sword Art Online (Alicization) Oddly enough, none of the "M" shows are on this list. There are NO episodes streaming of MegaloBox nor Mob Psycho 100 (so keep those on your DVR), and there are only about 10-12 episodes streaming each of Boruto and My Hero Academia.
  4. There are 3 shows ending on Toonami soon after JoJo gets replaced by Lupin (assuming no marathon on July 6th): The Promised Neverland (Ends 6/29; empty slot 7/6?) Hunter X Hunter (Also Ends 6/22; empty slot 6/29) Sword Art Online: Alicization (Ends 7/13 assuming no 7/6 marathon; empty slot 7/20) I believe their replacements will be announced at MomoCon, at least the first two. Also, we'll get something about The Forge and maybe a teaser for the Blade Runner series as well.
  5. We all know Attack on Titan is coming on 5/25 (it has to), and Toonami is known for not playing the regular lineup on holidays, so maybe they could end up doing not a marathon, but something completely different: a night of specials! The dubs of MP100 Reigen and PTE #13 and #14 are now available, so it would go something like this: 11 PM - AOT S3 Part 2 Premiere 11:30 PM - Mob Psycho 100 Reigen OVA 1 AM - Pop Team Epic #13 1:30 AM - Pop Team Epic #14 2 AM-4:30 AM - Hunter x Hunter blowout??? Obviously, this would make the most sense if MP100 S2 is coming 6/1 and they have to get rid of HxH to have room for it.
  6. Remember when I said that topicals stopping for MHA and Boruto MIGHT be indicative of a demotion for them? Sometimes I hate being right... To sum it up: SAO: Alicization promoted 1 hour to 11:30 Promised Neverland debuts at midnight Black Clover promoted 1.5 hours to 12:30 MHA demoted 1 hour to 1 AM Boruto rejoins Shippuden, demoted TWO hours to 1:30 AM Shippuden promoted an hour to 2 AM JoJo frickin' buried 1.5 hours deeper at 3 AM Granted, don't forget what day it is, but this schedule does follow an interesting pattern: Dragon Ball Super; then Aniplex premieres; then other FUNimation premieres; then Viz premieres; then the rerun (AOT). If it's legit, that may explain why, and tell something about Toonami's relationships with its partners.
  7. 2019 seems to be the year of the Fantasy sub-genre on Toonami--but is it too much? Let's examine: Dragon Ball Super - Martial arts multiverse fantasy/sci-fi Boruto - Modern-day-esque ninja society fantasy My Hero Academia - Superhero sci-fi/fantasy Sword Art Online - VR Sci-Fi...with fantasy overtones MegaloBox - Sports/political sci-fi JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - Super-ability horror fantasy Black Clover - Magic-based fantasy Hunter x Hunter - (currently) …chimera ant fantasy?? Shippuden - Slightly less modern-day ninja society fantasy Attack on Titan - apocalyptic dark fantasy The only show missing fantasy overtones is Megalobox--and that's only got 3 episodes left. Since Pop Team Epic and Gundam IBO left the block, it's been lacking a lot of variety. It is quite easy to argue that it's taking more of a fantasy bent these days than ever before, though the first half is quite well-laced with sci-fi as well (yes, I have to give it to DBS since the multiverse is kind of a sci-fi concept).
  8. Black Clover Page 39 Discussion Last time on Black Clover - Cliffhanger! Who is the traitor within the Magic Knights?! What is the true identity of Licht, leader of The Eye of the Midnight Sun?! WhoooOOOOooOOOooo could it beeEEEEEeeee?? Tonight, we hopefully find out!
  9. It would be interesting if, for one of their holiday marathons, Toonami tried a block of nothing but shows that reference baseball! It would look something like this: 10:30 Dragon Ball Super #70 11 PM FLCL Progressive #2 11:30 FLCL #4 12 AM JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders 41-42 1 AM Samurai Champloo Episode 23 ...any other suggestions?
  10. what's up, team? just gonna drop this here Here's a link to just the categories and winners if you don't want to listen to 8 hours of deliberation and literal fist fighting 👍🏼✌🏼
  11. Tonight I will be hosting an alternative marathon for the anime community here. I have been requested by several people to offer an alternative broadcast via rabb.it stream sharing site as several people are not thrilled about the choice in content for the toonami marathon. Mob Psycho 100 is a great anime based on a manga from the author of One Punch Man. The first and currently only season is 12 episodes long. It is an anime about gifted people with psychic powers and is an action shounen with some comedic elements and fantastic animation and sound effects. I will make another announcement here and on the UEMB discord closer to normal toonami start time giving a green light for those interested. In order to participate you need to make a free account over at rabb.it website in order to view and use the real time chat system in which we will be hanging out. This only requires an email and nothing else. My rabbit channel that you will want to tune into is: https://www.rabb.it/OuroborosBlack Please make an account shortly before normal toonami hours as the broadcast will begin soon after. You may pm me with questions or ask here or over at UEMB discord. I'd appreciate if someone gave a permanent link to the UEMB discord, as I am on mobile and it is hard to do atm. Thanks guys, and I hope lots tune in for a great anime and fun times!
  12. Not sure if this happens only today (12/26/17) or if this will be a thing going forward, but it appears Toonami has taken over the [as] live stream as well as its own streaming channel. So far it's just Pre-Flight, but I wonder if it could eventually be last week's block?
