I don't think so but its getting hard to keep track. I did Gate, Overlord, Tanya and a few other recent hits, I don't think i did this one.

Nope first appearance on this thread.

Them passing on it for Promised Neverland is probably indicative of a new strategy where they avoid the shows that light up the internet in favor of shining a spotlight on the lesser known.

I wouldn't say Goblin Slayer is off the table yet. Toonami is well known for getting shows (Tokyo Ghoul, et al.) long after their peaks of popularity. I wouldn't doubt that this show is still on their minds, and if it does air, the worst content is in the first episode (to my knowledge), so it wouldn't be very problematic after that. And at any rate, it would pail in comparison to the controversy Shield Hero were to bring up.

DeMarco did say that they "no longer want this to just be a shonen block" (FIIIINALLY!!!) and branch out into other genres like they did with Pop Team Epic, so The Promised Neverland is a good next step because it's more of a tense, quiet thriller/horror series in the same vain as Death Note, but Demon Slayer has elements of slice of life too.

It also probably won’t do too hot in ratings.

The Promised Neverland is really good, just not something I would expect to get good ratings on Toonami. Kinda like The Pet Girl of Sakurasou.

Or Durarara!! It did terrible ratings in the last year of ACTN's existence, but I'd be lying if I said watching it week by week with a crowd more accepting of the second half than the anime blog made up of people from OA wasn't a damn good time.

They didn't even air the second season .. Though that's more because the rights got snatched by someone else.

Will Nobunaga-sensei's Young Bride come to Toonami

 

I dunno. I know nothing about it. But any anime about Nobunaga is bound to have action in it.

It's about a teacher named Nobunaga who is visited by the time-traveling wife of the real Oda Nobunaga. Because the teacher is technically a descendant of the Oda family, she mistakes him for her timeline's Nobunaga and demands him to marry and court with her. The kicker is that, because she was married at the age of 15, she's come to the present day as a 15-year-old girl. The rest of the show will focus on Nobunaga avoiding her advances as he tries to find a way to send her back.

That sounds awful. Can I just watch anime where the MC's little sister writes dirty novels and wants him to bang her instead?

No because it’s a Netflix exclusive.

But will it be forever??? You never know. It's more likely than some of the stuff in this thread.

Yeah, it will.

It’s marketed as a Netflix original.

Assuming Netflix allows any of their original anime to be syndicated on other networks a la Bojack Horseman, the only one I want on Toonami is Kuromukuro.

Well that is probably the best original mecha anime they have so far besides Knights of Sidonia, even if it does take a lot of its cues from InuYasha.

Clearly we're running out of anime to put in this thread. And clearly, this means we need to start making up our own, lest we loop back around to suggesting Totally Spies.

Getting silly? The entire thread started with Angel Links.

It's almost like you think Kiss x Sis has a better chance of airing on Toonami than Netflix shows.
