Funimation should put the Pop Team Epic dub on Toonami.

Nah, people who watch Dragon Ball Super won't respond properly to it. It belongs with the comedy shows if Adult Swim would be willing to give comedy anime a chance again.

Or people who like the sense of community while watching these shows together. Or people who just like to see anime on TV.

I want to watch this again, since I missed good portions of the original run, but not sure if I'll be staying up that late to watch it. Ah well. I think it's cool for Toonami to be running this again, and hopefully people will try and watch it.

That’s why they invented the record button.

So you're saying a lot of people who watch anime in Japan are ghetto people since well, many anime air after midnight in Japan?

Also, really, nearly 6 years since the block was revived and we're still acting like Adult Swim is making dumb decisions over every Toonami announcement? This recent announcement isn't good or bad news. It's just... news! Attack on Titan is ending its run. Space Dandy, a show Adult Swim has perma-rights to since they helped co-produce the show with Funimation and Bandai visual, is replacing it. Since it's rerunning for the first time in three years, it's taking Cowboy Bebop's slot, pushing Cowboy Bebop, and GITS: SAC back a half-hour. That's all. Anime News Network just felt like posting an article about the matter as a result. Jesus!

That's interesting. Well, it's in the old shows section so no big deal.

It’s amazing how stupid this comment is.

I was just thinking a few days ago how there were rumors there was going to be a movie, but it never went beyond talk. I’m still hoping for it or maybe an announcement for a season 2.

You forgot to mention the fact that they had a new show ready for the block, but some unexpected licensing issues prevented it from airing. Dandy is essentially an emergency replacement until they get those issues fixed.

Here's the tweet from DeMarco.

Hasn't Sailor Moon been the only magical girl anime to air on either incarnation of Toonami?
