That's not the official Toonami twitter btw. That's just a fan run news account. It was posted on the official Toonami Facebook page originally (shown here: https://www.facebook.com/Toonami/photos/a.1442483259375850/2142557246035111 )

They also incorrectly stated that Megalobox was dropped. It wasn’t dropped, it finished up its fun earlier in the year and was replaced with The Promised Neverland.

Megalobox isn’t getting removed from Toonami. It wasn’t reran at all. It hasn’t been on the block since the end of March.

Apologies for the misworded article -- it's been corrected. The Promised Neverland is not leaving Toonami.

Man, screw that, I'm not waiting through an hour of *ruto for the last couple of episodes of Hunter X Hunter, I'll go to Crunchyroll for those.

Almost the entire block hasn’t really changed and Hunter x Hunter is still after an hour of both the Naruto shows. You could just take an hour long nap or a late night snack.

But no reruns on the block at all.

I hear there's this hot new tech called a "DVR."

Or you could wait for the blu-rays like I do, because if you're watching it on Toonami then you're probably there for the dubs.

On Demand is an option as well, if you have access to it.

It was pretty obvious we would have a lineup shift starting May 25, but moving up half an hour is a good bonus. It gets pretty easy to doze off there at the end.

Since Megalobox has been mentioned, I saw that Toonami isn't streaming a single episode of the dub. Really hate how Toonami/Adult Swim handle their exclusives. I can't support it if there's literally no legal option Sad
Also would be nice if they put up the entirety of DBZ Kai and Stardust Crusaders, since those aren't streaming anywhere as well.

I just watch the episodes on Adult Swim's site. Log in with my cable provider and can watch the recent episode airings whenever I want & without commercials. So much more convenient. I haven't watched the actual channel in years.

You can by buying the blu-ray, release is next month.
