Not just one but two new anime are joining Toonami but these are very familiar if you seen them from the first season!
In July 29th, the anime JoJo Bizarre Adventure returns but it will be part 3 “Stardust Crusaders” joining the line up. The main character will be the 17-year old Jotaro Kujo along with the returning “JoJo” Joseph Joestar and they must fight an old enemy from the same ancestor, the vampire Dio Brando.
In October, the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans returns but with an English Dub of Season 2. The anime will be back in Toonami with JoJo Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders.
In addition to IBO joining Toonami, the anime company FUNimation confirmed at AX that they officially licensed the anime Iron-Blooded Orphans for both and they will release both sets later this year.
Thank God it’s Friday! I’m Matthew and welcome to this important and blessed Friday! What makes this day great? As a way to start this new year of 2017, I would to announce that Saturday, December 7th will be my sister’s wedding. She’s finally getting married and I can’t help but feel happy for her. After three years of dating with her fiancee, these two love bird decided to tie the knots and become a family of their own. After all my years of hanging out her fiancee, I can’t help but feel blessed; he is a cool guy and he really feels great to have an older brother. Saturday will be a major life changing moment in not only their lives but ours. As they leave and become their own family, we will continue to stay close together and expand the family!
Aside from my life, here is a quick recap news for anime fans. In Toonami, since we’re not getting Iron-Blooded Orphans season 2 any time soon, we are, instead, getting the updated anime Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096. You can read the plot here but this anime is updated adaptation to the classic Japanese OVA. Not one but two new anime series are joining Toonami but all under the same title. Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters are joining Toonami. After the long wait, FUNimation will be broadcasting the anime with the veteran English Dub cast and updated actors and animation. Super takes place after the events of Majin Buu and it’s the anime adaptation to the original movies like Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’ with a large plot and new characters. The Final Chapter is the Kai version of the classic Majin Buu Saga without the fillers. Last but not least, the long return of the popular series Blue Exorcist returns! Under the name, Blue Exorcist – Kyoto Saga –, the main protagonist Rin Okumura and his younger twin brother Yukio and his classmates return to slay more demons. However, based on the original manga arc The Impure King Arc, Rin will once again go through trials as he make sacrifices and must learn the responsibilities of his demonic powers if he wishes to save his friends. This anime return will follow the manga and will bring back the previous voice actors.
With all this said, let’s start this new year!
