Toonami is going to be very busy and exciting at the same time. If you watch Toonami like me, it’s the best way to enjoy Saturday nights by watching your favorite anime in the comfort at home. I got two news for Toonami fans!
Here is the first news:
On September 28th, Toonami will be having a marathon of Dragon Ball Super in order to prepare the last episode. First, the marathon will start with the new English Dub episode, Episode 130, at 11 PM (depending on your timezone). Once episode 130 is over, the rest of the marathon will begin from Episode 121 to all the way to 130. The last episode. Episode 131, will be on October 5th.
BREAKING NEWS: #Toonami will be having a @dragonballsuper marathon on Saturday, September 28 starting at 11 PM. You get a new episode at 11 PM (Episode 130) and then a marathon starting with Episode 121 and ending with Episode 130. pic.twitter.com/1XICZeEph1
If you been following Saitama’s adventures in Season 2 online, get ready to relieve the series again on TV. One-Punch Man season 2 will be joining Toonami on October 12th. People watching the anime will be given the chance to watch it in English Dub on live TV. Just a reminder, Madhouse Studios did not do any of the animation in this second season but instead, we have J.C. Staff to do the animation. They are well known for animating anime such as Food Wars and DanMachi.
It’s going to be tough to choose the best girl in Final Fantasy VII Remake. It’s either Tifa or Aerith. Anyway, Square Enix revealed another exciting trailer of the upcoming video game Final Fantasy VII Remake. It was already hinted that we would get footage on the enemies such as Shinra and the Turks such as Reno, Rude and Tseng. Now that the trailer is revealed, we finally got more than we wanted. In this game, the Turks Reno and Rude will be giving Cloud some trouble as he has to fight them. We also get to see summons redesigned such as Ifrit and Shiva. Also revealed is the game moment where players has to get into the notorious gangster Don Corneo (I am assuming the voice played as him is Mark Hamill), a workout minigame with Cloud and Tifa, and a rescue mission to save Aerith from Shinra. This game is coming out on March 3rd, 2020 for PS4.
One Piece is becoming the longest going series in Shonen Jump history. Not only the anime is reaching over 900 episodes and with the recent movie Stampede being a success, we’re getting another One Piece Pirate Warriors game. Already mentioned, One Piece will be getting a fourth Pirate Warriors game for the PS4, X1, Switch and PC. It’s been announced that the following playable characters are Luffy, Sanji, Zoro, Reiju, Jimbei and now Carrot. Originally, the game will be covering the Whole Cake Island. Now, according to Tokyo Game Show, fans will go beyond to the current arc in the land of Wano, the county of samurais and ninjas. Based on the trailer, players will be in the current arc of the story and it may be an original story different than what’s going on in the manga/anime. It’s pretty common especially since the 3rd game did the same thing in the Dressrosa arc. Also in the trailer, it looks Luffy will be facing another Emperor of the sea; his name is Kaido and he is one of the Four Emperors of the Sea. This game is coming out in 2020.
2020 is going to be an exciting year for anime gamers. Revealed in Tokyo Game Show, Bandai Namco has revealed a new trailer for the upcoming Dragon Ball game, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. This trailer shows that players will be able to experience Dragon Ball Z from the Saiyan Saga to newly announced Buu Saga. What makes this announcement even greater is that that game finally has a release date and people can also pre-order for exclusive contents. The game is set to be released on January 17th, 2020 for PS4, X1 and PC.
People who pre-order the game will get a bonus sub-quest where players can work together with friends, an early access training mission with Akira Toriyama’s original character Bonyu and a cooking item.
However, if players pay for the collector’s edition, they will get the following above and some physical gifts. They will be awarded with a steelbook case, an artbook and a diorama figure set.
