I did not expect this to happen. Another long running show on Toonami. Doubt all parts will air.

So now there's only going to be 2 time slots on Toonami that aren't occupied by long-running shows. Man that's disappointing.

It's better than running repeats of shows they already aired

Airing Parts 3 & 4 will depend on performance. The show might take a break after Part 2, but again it'll depend on how well it does.

If Toonami gets to part 3 I just hope they can air it without the annoying black spot edits since it's late enough. So far the edits in part 4 are minimal and haven''t been as annoying.

Well I'll be damned. I guess this will replace One Punch Man.

On the one hand, JoJo! Woo!

On the other, time to cut out some long runners. One Piece specifically.

In the long run, it's probably better for the health of the block to pick up reliable long-running shows. For instance, One Punch Man's premiere got tremendous ratings, but no matter how popular it is, in eleven more weeks it's done. But if something like Jojo can bring in those kind of numbers (given its similar cult following I'd say it certainly could) that could ensure the block's ratings for years to come.

Now for the real question: Will they be able to get the TV rights to Roundabout???

I'm sure they will be using the Bluray version that got rid of them(Parts 1 and 2 also got them,but Crunchy got them uncensored),and none of them showing anything that Toonami couldn't show(though I don't expect them showing Forever trying to peep on the loli taking a shower...)

Well, I guess there's no mystery as to what's going to replace One Punch Man after its run is done.

I'm kinda disappointed, but I'm sure my husband will be pleased. He likes JoJo, but it just wasn't something I was interested in. But I'll give it a shot, like we've been doing for all shows on Toonami. I didn't really think I'd like Iron-Blooded Orphans, but that one is surprising me with how I'm starting to like it.

Does that mean One Piece is gone? Because there's no way they can air this and Samurai Jack in the fall unless they extend the block or cancel One Piece..
