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?

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!

Image result for sword art online alicization cour

Whether you love or hate Sword Art Online, it’s coming back for Toonami. If you remembered, Toonami premiered the English Dub of Sword Art Online: Alicization in 2019. However, this was just the first act of the Alicization arc and the second act was premiered on sites such as Crunchyroll and Funimation. If you are one of those people who wait for the anime to be in English Dub so you can watch, don’t wait any longer because it is coming sooner than you think. Aniplex announced that the second cour of Sword Art Online: Alicization will be coming to TV on January 18th. The second part of the anime is called Sword Art Online Alicization War of the Underworld. This part of the anime covers volumes 15-18 of the light novels. This anime will be replacing season 2 of One-Punch Man.

If you haven’t seen the anime, don’t read the synopsis for this anime (according to LN volume 15):

Administrator’s defeat has come at a heavy cost: The death of Eugeo as well as the mental decline of Kirito. Six months after the epic battle atop Central Cathedral, Kirito spends his days in the Underworld wheelchair-bound; bereft of emotion or even a will to live. Although Alice and Bercouli do what they can to help him, it isn’t long before the armies of the dark territory are start to move in earnest. The “Final Stress Test” has begun. But will Kirito be ready?

Kurozu-cho, a small fog-bound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world.

It manifests itself in everything from seashells and whirlpools in water to the spiral marks on people’s bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi’s father and the voice from the cochlea in our inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurozu-cho are pulled ever deeper into a whirlpool from which there is no return!
