Top 5 “new” anime that should join Toonami

Toonami - December 21st 2019 Intro "TOM 6" - YouTube

Almost like my top 10 post about Toonami and previously aired anime, I have another top post to share with all of you. Last time, I talked about what anime should return to Toonami. Today, I want to talk about “new” anime that has yet to join this Saturday night block. When I say new, I don’t mean new as in current year/season anime that was made in this current year. I say new as in anime that never showed up on Toonami. For example, the anime Hunter x Hunter joined Toonami with an English Dub on 2016, but the anime original aired on 2011-14 in subbed online. Even though anime wasn’t brand new to most viewers, this anime was new and fresh for TV users. We also got some new anime joined Saturdays such as Dr. Stone, Mob Psycho 100 and The Promised Neverland. In this post, I want to list my top 5 new anime that could join Toonami.

5. Fairy Tail

Fairy Tale': Final Season Will Bring Overdue Reunions and Epic ...

We had many long-going anime before such as Dragon Ball, One Piece, Bleach and even the current Naruto Shippuden. Now joining along these titles is these Funimation titles Black Clover and My Hero Academia. I never watched Fairy Tail. but I heard from people that this is a great Shonen anime that is fun to get into if you like anime like One Piece and Naruto. Oddly enough, despite this anime having a huge fanbase, this anime has not appeared on Toonami. One of these days, I do want to get into this series. With this COVID-19 going on, Funimation has been dealing with the dub for the anime My Hero Academia . I feel like once they are done with recording the English Dub of season 4 of the anime, I think it would be nice to see them take a break and give fans something different that is already recorded and will keep people wanting more Saturday nights.

4. Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online

Sword Art Online: Alternative Gun Gale Online (2018-)

Just like My Hero Academia, Sword Art Online Alicization next arc is hit by the COVID-19 delay. I feel like until things get busy again, I think it would be cool if Toonami includes this spinoff anime, Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online. In this anime, taking place in the same world of SAO, the story focuses on new characters besides Kirito and the group and the anime centers on Gun Gale Online, which was a game introduced in season 2 of the main SAO story. This anime does have Kirito, but this anime does have cute and likeable characters and it will be a breather from the main story’s “serious tone” in plot. I seen this anime and I like it.

3. Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga

Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga Review | Brutal Gamer

Anybody remember Blue Exorcist joining Toonami? This is not a sequel to the main anime that aired in 2012. According to sources, Blue Exorcist Kyoto Saga focuses the Kyoto Impure Arc from the manga; specifically, according to Otaku Magazine, this anime takes place after episode 17 where the story sticks to source material. In short, this new version of the anime replaces the second half of the old version. I really like the anime and if you like themes like exorcism and fighting demonic evil, this is something to watch. I would like to see Toonami add this anime on TV. Similar to One-Punch Man season 2, this anime can be streamed anywhere, but last time I checked, the English Dub is exclusive in Hulu.

2. Accel World

VIZ | The Official Website for Accel World

Made by the same creators of Sword Art Online, Reki Kawahara created this series called Accel World. Unfortunately in the community, this anime doesn’t get much attention like SAO. I seen some of the anime, but I say it’s a good and fun series to watch. If you like Sword Art Online and video games, this something to watch. This anime about 24 episodes and I think it will keep viewers entertain.

1. The Rising of the Shield Hero

Amazon.com: Skinhub 12" x 15" Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari The ...

I haven’t seen this anime, but I have others saying this anime is really good, while others say controversial stuff about it. Despite this anime getting bad reviews from ANN and this series dealing with controversial themes, fans have said this anime hits the nail and it’s a great isekai anime. With an anime popular and having the green light for more seasons, I wouldn’t be surprised if Toonami adds this title on Saturdays.

These are just suggestions. What about you guys? What kind of anime you want to see on TV? What new anime deserves a chance for public?

Final Fantasy VII Remake Deluxe Edition Gamestop exclusive unboxing

Final Fantasy VII Remake | Game Preorders

FINAL FANTASY VII Remake Deluxe Edition | PlayStation 4 | GameStop

Before I begin this unboxing, I want to remind you all that if you ever want a shout-out or want me to promote your blogs/website, feel free to donate at my Ko-fi. For a small donation, I will do a shout-out to you in my next project article.

I been wanting to do this unboxing post way back in April, but due to work, coronavirus and family stuff, my life has been busy. I also got preoccupied in the recent game of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Besides this, I am here to talk about the game’s package and what version I got. If you have been keeping up with the news I been writing, Square Enix released information on the pre-order bonuses of Final Fantasy VII Remake. There are three versions in which fans can either get the standard, deluxe or the expensive 1st Class Edition. Knowing that I wanted this game when it was first announced, I settled for the deluxe edition; it had many goodies than the standard, but it was also affordable than getting the game over $100. The deluxe edition comes with the game and standard case, a steelbook case with Sephiroth on the cover, a mini soundtrack from the game, DLC such as a Chocobo Chick and Cactuar and an artbook. Depending where you buy it from a retailer, you also get some exclusives. I went ahead and pre-ordered at my GameStop which a tin box and a Shinra keycard replica.

I don’t collect steelbooks often, but they are pretty cool to have. I have a Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and God of War. When you get the case for Final Fantasy VII Remake, you get to have Sephiroth on the cover and on this inside, there are two slots in which you can put you game discs in it. The inside has a picture of Cloud staring at the Shinra Reactor.

The artbook is pretty cool since it does show the designs on the characters and enemies. I am not going to show everything since I don’t want to take up space on the memory. The soundtrack is pretty small. It only comes with 12 tracks from the game.

Last but not least, we have the keycard. The tin box is small, but pretty shiny. The front of the card has the title and logo of Final Fantasy VII Remake and on the back has the ID number and the Shinra logo. If you are wondering, the ID card number does nothing. I was curious and I tried to see if I can use it for an exclusive DLC code since it has the same number digits as a PSN code. However, it doesn’t do anything. This is just something to have and pretend as if you are either a Shinra worker or an Avalanche member trying to sneak into the base.

So this what it looks like if you get the deluxe edition. Did you get this edition too or did you get something else?

Top 10 previous-aired anime that should return to Toonami

Watch Toonami Clips for Free from Adult Swim

Greetings anime fans! I hope everyone is doing well. By the time you read this, it’s already days after Saturday (05/02/20). I am going to cut to the chase and tell you why I am sharing with you a top 10 posts. Recently in Toonami, we have many anime leaving Toonami and this means the Saturday night block has been cut short. It’s already been announced that the anime Mob Psycho 100 season 1 will be returning to Toonami. If you look at the schedule for May 9th, there is only 6 anime titles premiering. Since Food Wars season 3 won’t be airing on TV and Demon Slayers recently finished the season, Toonami has been removing titles from left to right. It also doesn’t help that some anime won’t be airing until summer or fall. Dr. Stone and season 2 will be back later in 2020 and the final season of Sword Art Online Alicization will be pushed back in summer.

I really like how Toonami does its best and give us the recent anime titles in the same time as fans are watching seasonal anime. Despite some people finishing some titles early, in essence, viewers from Toonami can still participate in the anime viewing. However, as much as I like the direction Toonami is going with these new anime series, I sometimes miss the old anime that was once aired on TV. One of the cool things that Toonami sometimes does is bring back previous anime in their time slot for new and old fans such as FLCL, Paranoia Agent and Outlaw Star. In this post, I want to share my top 10 previously aired anime I think people will enjoying today. This is won’t be ranked and it will be anime that has been in my mind. These titles are anime that was on Toonami in the past!

Back in later March, the video game company Square Enix gave me a birthday coupon code for 10% off on anything at their official website I decided to use my coupon and buy a soundtrack collection of Kingdom Hearts. This soundtrack is called Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX Original Soundtrack. This soundtrack contains the music from the game collections of 1.5 and 2.5. This collection contains two soundtracks in one box. The soundtrack for 1.5 has three discs and 2.5 has 4 discs. Inside each of the soundtrack cases has a small booklet with has the composer’s comments and a collage of Kingdom Hearts game moments from cutscenes to gameplay.

I hope Square Enix releases a 2.8 soundtrack and a KH3 soundtrack soon.
