  • Re: 1 & Only Toonami on Adult Swim Thread

    I'm a little surprised it's happening this early, figured it wouldn't air until mid-summer as a replacement for KLK, matching how S1 started on Toonami in late July. I guess they're playing hurry-up since they need new shows ASAP on the block?

      Clipped via PR:
      SANTA MONICA, CA (February 14, 2015) –Fans at Katsucon (National Harbor, MD) were ready to “Link Start!” when Aniplex of America surprised them with their announcement today that Sword Art Online II will be debuting on TOONAMI™, the animation programming block that airs on Adult Swim™ each Saturday night, on March 28th from 1:00AM (PST/EST). This will be the second announcement this year by Aniplex of America of their licensed title to air on national television since KILL la KILL premiered on TOONAMI™ on Febraury 7th. The highly anticipated second season of Sword Art Online makes its return to the Saturday late night lineup since the first season ended in 2014.

        Most likely, it will replace Gurren-Lagann once it finishes its run, and once SAO II finishes its run, either Fate/Zero or Magi will take its place.
        I would love to see either one on Toonami, though I'm betting Magi has a higher chance than F/Z.

            This is no surprise that Sword Art Online ll is coming to Toonami. I have seen the second season and it could be better than the first season, but that's not saying much. I have no desire to see it again.

              This is happy news...though now I'm concerned as to why we haven't heard anything about the North American Blu-Ray/DVD sets yet.

                Probably because they are waiting to wow and amaze us with their latest single episode DVD-only release strategy for $199.99 later this spring.

                  It's probably too soon for that. The first season, which ran during the summer and fall of 2012, was solicited the following year in May and released in August. So using that as a guideline since this season ran during the summer and fall of last year, it's on target for a release sometime this summer, so it will be awhile before it gets released. It was pretty obvious that SAO II was coming to Toonami, but I wasn't expecting it to be this soon.

                    I dislike their home video approach as well, but sadly it's the only way to buy the english dub on disc, outside of importing from another country like Australia.

                    Ah okay, that makes more sense then. TBH I had forgotten when Aniplex USA released S01 on Blu-Ray and DVD.

                      Makes sense for this to be the Gurren Lagann replacement. It's just a little earlier than its first season, which makes sense since it was inevitable.

                          Not that I'm not excited for this but it feels kind of unnecessary after how he was just on Toonami Faithful's podcast barely a week ago. I hope we can get some different topics going on instead of just reiterating what was said on TF's.

                              Solid ratings if nothing else. Not bad.

                                Not great either, especially for a brand new episode of an anime most wanted by Toonami fans not breaking over 1 mil? I don't think that's good. Let's see next week's.
