Don't expect to see the opening to this as it will be completely cut for air time. It's unclear if anything else will be cut since the episode lengths are a little varied.

(also since the OP plays at the END of this episode anyway)

Also, I likely won't be tuning in tonight. I am on a trip and sharing the room with 2 other dudes, so we're gonna be enjoying the trip.

This is going to be one of the biggest busts in Toonami history.

I wouldn't be so sure! It's got star power like no other show on Toonami...

...but if MHA beats it, I'll laugh my ass off!

As long as viewership spikes during MHA and makes Demarco look even more like a tool for deathslotting it (or so the haters think), I'll be golden.

I mentioned before how if they aren't willing to go out of their way to do some finagling to air the show in its entirety, through preempting something or having the rest of the shows start late, possibly filling extra space with half a Pop Team Epic, total immersion event, various other shorts they've aired over the years or whatnot, they shouldn't air it all.  Syfy played OPs and EDs in full, but cut in-episode things for time, mostly stuff that could be cut without losing anything important, like establishing shots and whatnot.  I would think Toonami should be above cutting main content for time.  OPs, EDs, previews, Petit Clovers, etc, is one thing, but this?  They should have just passed on the series entirely if they couldn't or wouldn't air it properly.

And I say this as someone who really isn't looking forward to this show at all.  I wouldn't seek it out to watch it through other means.  I'm only watching it because Toonami is airing it.  But, it's the principle of the thing.  The quality and care we [should] come to expect from Toonami.  And if it happened to this show, it can happen to another show that we and/or I care more about.

Well, yesterday I was watching FLCLimax on my DVR, which was the last time Toonami had to deal with something with an irregular run time, and they DID give it a 45-minute time slot with 2 internal commercial breaks. But that was during a MARATHON. This gives me hope that if they decide to run a gen:LOCK marathon at some point, they'll use the uncut episodes. After all, it would be a unique opportunity to air a marathon that isn't TOTALLY reruns...

That's not a bad idea.  I just don't know how many people will actually watch the marathon.  I also would prefer to have as few marathons as possible in general.

And holy shit you must have a huge DVR to still have something saved that old!

Yeah, it does have a pretty good capacity. I've actually still got some JoJo, Gundam Unicorn, and even an episode of Hunter x Hunter (Kurapika vs. Uvogin) saved on there from 2017, too!

But I do have to delete newer episodes of shows I don't really care that much about, like Dragon Ball Super and the Narutoverse shows.  It does help that they're streaming online though.

Man, I've got a major backlog on mine, lol.  Gotta get some more shows off there.  None of it is Toonami stuff, though.  Some stuff I want to keep, others I still need to watch.  Got a bunch of American Pickers and Anitques Roadshow I need to watch!  My aunt and I watch them together, heh.  The other stuff I have is mostly documentary shows from PBS and Science Channel, etc.

there will also be a music video tonight

Why are they having a music video when they're already pressed for time?

Despite my love of mecha, if they wanted a 3D animated show...they should have gotten Kengan Ashura before Netflix did.

Good question? Maybe this episode of Food Wars got edited to hell?

Rooter Teeth's animation has really come a long way

it's better than RWBY but it's still MILES away from looking as good as some CG animes like Land of the Lustrous

Image result for land of the lustrous

This flying right now is pretty cool. At least they're taking advantage of the scale with the 3D
