Pop Team Epic rerun replaces OPM this Saturday at 2:30am.

There will be an AoT S3 first cour marathon on 11/17 for who the fuck knows why because that’s actually the week before thanksgiving. Kai and Jack air normally.

Attack on Titan will rerun in the same timeslot on November 24th. Presumably it will move down to FLCL’s slot on the 8th and Megalo will take midnight.

Megalo Box will replace FLCL Alternative on December 8th.

Last weeks ratings were shit, but thankfully not really any worse than the week prior. This week, summed up the front did worse, and the back did a bit better than normal. It’s likely that the small uptick in the back has to do with DST. Kai continues its fall, which shouldn’t be surprising that people quickly tire of a rerun they would need to commit 4 years to to complete again. Black Clover beat Jojo yet again, but only by a very slim margin.

9:00 Dragon Ball Z Kai (r) 367 0.11 146

9:30 My Hero Academia (r) 346 0.11 148

10:00 Naruto: Shippuden (r) 381 0.14 182

10:30 Boruto: Naruto Next Generations 376 0.15 190

11:00 Dragon Ball Super 559 0.24 315

11:30 Mob Psycho 100 341 0.14 180

12:00a Attack on Titan 316 0.13 163

12:30a Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable 300 0.12 156

1:00a Black Clover (r) 301 0.13 172

1:30a Hunter X Hunter (r) 293 0.15 189

2:00a FLCL: Alternative (r) 281 0.15 188

2:30a One-Punch Man (r) 269 0.14 177

3:00a Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem A Klok Opera (r) 210 0.11 145

>>103986577
What reruns? Anon, we made a pact to go back in time an hour, but when we did, the world needed to compensate and we lost an hour of reality. In the end, going back in time means nothing because you lose time, not gain it.

Lesson learned, and now we're all just snapshots in god's cringe compilation.

So, how much do you anons think Toonami is going to be cut once Cartoon Network's fiscal year comes around? Do you guys think Toonami is even going to be around in 2020?

From what I've seen, Super alone dropped nearly a million views since earlier this year. That's pretty astounding.
>>
>>103986689
why is the marathon the weekend BEFORE thanksgiving
>>
>>103987700
Aired during the extra hour. Doesn’t exist
>>
>>103987932
There are tons of slots opening next year and we would be lucky to get new shows in half of them. There’s no way they can keep ignoring this. Keep in mind the cut in 2015 came after 4 months or so of dogshit at the end of 2014, so the fact that they haven’t done anything doesn’t mean the block is safe. We may actually keep the time, but it will just be filled with a permanent loop of reruns.

Considering numbers continue to drop weekly, I’m expecting even lower numbers than this to finish out the year before the double marathon week
>>

You thought this year was ganna be a good one because all the holidays are on wednesday?

I really liked Doomstar Requiem.
>>
>>103988015
The big question they're going to have to ask is if the standard Adult Swim line-up would do better, especially considering they've lost two FOX acquisitions this year.

I don't think Toonami will be dropped completely, but I do think it'll see a cut in its line-up. Some anon in a previous Toonami thread suggested dropping down to four hours, and I see that as a possibility.
>>
>>103988134
Might depend on if Cartoon Network gets to keep the 8-9pm slot this year or not.

So, since the question has come up a few times regarding which series Crunchyroll actually owns, and thus what series Toonami potentially can get access to via their new partnership, I figure this is relevant. Crunchyroll just put out a list of dubs that are being transferred to their website due to the split with Funimation, which gives more or less a comprehensive list of what series they actually own.

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2018-11-03/crunchyroll-reveals-partial-list-of-anime-leaving-service-on-november-9-tentative-list-of-dubbed-anime-launching-soon/.139040
(It's the second list, the first list is what Funimation series they're losing.)

Do any of these seem like good fits for the block?
>>
Brought this up in the Saturday general but I’ll bring it up here too. Assuming AS truly has a partnership with Crunchyroll as some were speculating, every show on this list would hypothetically be an option for the block. What would you like to see?

Keep in mind though that the CR partnership talks are all speculation based on Toonami getting Mob. Demarco wanted Mob really bad, he simply could have licensed the show like any other
>>
>>103988465
>via their new partnership
Nothing of the sort has been confirmed. The article that claimed this was basing that statement off them getting Mob and nothing else. This half of the hive mind >>103988525 understands it better
>>
>>103988525
Honestly on their own, all of these shows are at best mediocre. But putting them up exclusively against dogshit like Boruto and AoT, almost all of them would be a godsend to this dull lineup. Plus, if it really is a partnership situation, price shouldn’t be as much of a barrier as it typically is, so there would be less excuse for running so many fucking reruns

3:30a Samurai Jack (r) 210 0.10 131

Huh, what a world. Almost everything is a little better, but what is interesting is that HxH and FLCL are tied with Boruto in the demo score. Nothing is beating Super and the Dragonfags will just tune everything out at the expense of their one show. That said, he's probably going to rerun Super when it ends anyway.
>>
Even if there was a partnership, what would be the point of watching one of their dubs weekly when you can just watch the whole thing on CR? Not even Titan dub fans want to wait for Toonami anymore, and they're being forced to.

There isn’t one, but that’s the case for every show on the block. All Toonami can hope to do is introduce a new audience to a show, which they might pull off with some of those titles which are less well known

Even if Demarco can get these shows for peanuts he wouldn’t air any of them. He will never take risks, and someone as casual as him probably doesn’t have a clue what a single show on this list is excluding Mob
>>
>>103989792
He's mentioned Space Patrol and Gintama
>>
>>103989839

Fairly well known, but as a short is worthless to the block
>gintama
Wow he is an expert on long running horeshit who would have guessed. Thank fuck this dub isn’t completed

>>103989792
His research on shows consists of watching the first episode. Would be hilarious if he greenlit Testament of Sister New Devil based on the first episode that doesn’t have big fat anime tiddies
>>
>>103988525
Let’s break down what would even be on faggitmans radar. I’m going down the list
>Berserk
Pretty sure this is the 2016 adaptation with the comedy gold animation
>Gintama
Demarco is a long running shonen pro, but I doubt he would touch this since only S3 is dubbed with no plans for the rest
>ReZero
This is a maybe, I only say this because there was a lot of talk of it coming earlier in the year so I assume some of that blew his way
>The Ancient Magus Bride
Another maybe based on the one tweet he made, however he very well could have overlooked it and only been talking about the other two shows listed

Thats it. Everything else is too obscure for him. The only hope anything else on that list has is if Kim Manning assumes direct control again like she did for PTE

Kim Manning is shit but I'm glad we got PTE, very nice for shitposting, short and together, it was a fun time. It didn't bomb nearly as hard as everyone including myself was expecting. Especially in comparison to Bort's big premiere considering how many odds were against PTE on american TV.

I’m assuming ReZero is at least 50% likely because of what you said. I know of a few people on Twitter who have directly @‘d him telling him about it and even thanking him in advance for getting it when everyone was assuming it was happening

>>103990103
Isn’t it ironic that Boruto isn’t doing much better than PTE did despite having an earlier timeslot. This audience shows again and again that it doesn’t want anything but Dragonball, so you might as well try some new things out

That’s the risk you take with a Manning pick. We will get something that typically wouldn’t air on the block, but it would be like she threw a dart to pick the show. We got lucky with PTE, we just as well could get Hand Shakers or Masumne’s Revenge next time since Manning doesn’t have to jump through as many hoops to get shows secured

On one hand, if CR and AS have a partnership, that long list of shows is a godsend. On the other hand, it’s a long list of shows from one of the most popular stream services, a service that still offers all those shows right now. Toonami either airs the same failing dogshit or they give the CR list a try

>>103991686
Because it’s not an overrated memeshow everyone already watched elsewhere. If nothing else it’s proof Toonami needs to avoid everything popular since no one is waiting for Toonami to air it and watching it elsewhere
>>
>>103991686
Best guess is that the JoJo draw/meme was years ago, and most habitual anime watchers probably watched the subs already, whereas Black Clover's never really had the spike of popularity JoJo has, so a fair amount of those watching Toonami probably heard of it there first.

>>
>>103993409
Airing popular stuff everyone watched elsewhere has been working fine, right?
>>
>>103991443
We did get all 10 episodes, Toonami aired the last episodes for our last month of December movies
>>
>>103993979
demarco had to do a separate deal to acquire those last 2 episodes
>>
>>103993979
That’s not the point. We had to wait a month and license them separately to get them because Funi was a cunt with the contract. That’s when the relationship between them and AS really started to fall apart
>>
>>103993859
And let’s be real, it’s not like it can get worse at this point ratings wise
>>
Slower ratings thread than normal, is it because everyone is caught up in the you-know-what?
>>

>>103994743
There’s nothing to talk about. The schedule is set for the next 3 months minimum, the ratings being shit is an every week thing, and the absolutely retarded call to rerun AOT right after marathoning it is pretty demoralizing
>>
>>103993956
And if the "popular" stuff didn't work why would table scraps do any better?
>>
>>103994743
I actually forgot about it because of the happenings.
>>
>>103995263
Everyone bitched and moaned about Black Clover, yet it’s one of the strongest shows on the block, beating out a very high request show nearly every week. There is certainly some evidence that things people are NOT asking for have potential do well just by the nature of being fresh to most of the audience. Could BC be an outlier? Sure. But as >>103994378 notes, it can’t get worse. They may as well go all in, especially if they truly have access to those shows for cheap
>>
>>103994743
These have always been hybrid news/ratings threads. We are at one of the points of the year where nothing is ending, thus there is no news to talk about. Next show out is Black Clover in January. It absolutely deserves to continue on, but we don’t know if Demarco will relicense it since he doesn’t like it, as well if Funimation will even make it available if they aren’t forced to which they may not be now that the big BC push has stopped since it worked

Reminder that cable ratings as a whole haven't diminished that much. From July'17 to June'18, Adultswim has had less than a 10% drop in ratings. In that same time Toonami has lost nearly 30%. All of this is because of Demarco

All the way

>>103996024
does her name have any in-universe gags or is it just a "you read it/remember it and laugh" thing?
>>
>>103995877
What do you mean no competition? There’s hundreds of shows selling on iTunes and Amazon video. That’s where niche TV thrives these days.

It’s entirely possible between the US and Japan, FLCL 2/3 made back their budgets which I suspect is less than 300,000 an episode. Quite a bit cheaper than an episode of Rick & Morty, Venture or Samurai Jack.
>>
>>103996239
All the way Tome is actually a dub addition. The original she just says Tome-chan
>>
>>103996338
I mean no competition. Go back and look at the shows FLCL was outselling and tell me if you consider that competition in any way.

They admitted in a recent bump, so take it or leave it, that they have $3 million into FLCL. I do think they made back the budget, but then what’s the point? I really doubt they had much of a profit window on this project, and for how long it took I doubt that is acceptable. FLCL wasn’t just meant to be a break even project, it was also meant to revitalize interest in Toonami as a whole which it didn’t do at all, if anything it actually decreased interest

I loved how the ending of this weeks Super had a large chunk of the thread >space poachers? and then a few hours later when next weeks promo hits even Goku thought that was horse shit. Like Sean had an in-character character break and the editors rolled with that take because reasons.
>>
>>103996338
Alt currently sits at 101 on the season pass rankings on itunes. Not exactly lighting it up despite the niche market. And lol at the idea of "thriving" on services where you pay per episode or season. That isn't how people watch TV and it never will be. It's bundles.


I also wonder how much they spent on marketing. They wanted this to do well. Didnt turner even give them an nba game ad aspot?

Not to even mention how sickening it is to talk about something FLCL related in terms of "well they made it on the cheap and broke even so thats good". Yeah, I hope it was worth dragging flcl back from the dead for these soulless corporate drones. Because it sure as hell wasn't worth it artistically.

FLCL had no ads on cable outside of AS. It seems they understood that it was too niche to try to appeal outside. Jack was marketed on other channels, but it has an entire generation of kids who lump in it with Ed edd n Eddy, PPG, etc so that made sense
>>
>>103996736
Yes just like every other marathon in the past
>>
>>103996812
These things are entirely hit and miss. Pop Team Epic only took a few shots at it despite the nature of the show surely allowing more. As >>103996427 notes, Mob does it a little. However, in this context it changes how you perceive the character. Chio’s school road is a recent example that did a pretty good job with ad libbing. I still think Danganronpa, specifically the V3 anime, takes the cake by miles on ad libbed script

>>
>>103997016
I mean here is the executive behind the show itself saying that they went "all out" in promoting the show in a bigger way than usual. The larger point was that they should be disappointed if all they did was break even despite all their efforts. I dont know how many ads they had, I only saw that one but who knows. And I can tell you an ad spot during an nba playoff game is a huge deal. And turner giving them that for free means they saw opportunity.

Or they saw they had a fuckton of money sunk in this project and needed every eye they could get on it.

The thing is, the Toonami audience is static. If you watch anime, you know Toonami exists. Your decision whether or not to watch it won’t be swayed by any ads, unless those ads say the block has went through a total overhaul. It’s why I think them spamming all these show ads during the week comes off more as desperate than anything else. The general AS audience knows Toonami is there on Saturday, but you aren’t gonna convince them to watch it with a clip of Bort or MHA

>TOM speech shilling for LoL
I dont visit other sites and I refuse to believe DeMarco comes here unless directed but this is weird.

I love the toonami general community. It's a shame that it's the only way to enjoy the block itself. I can't picture me watching the block 2 weeks in a row or more without /tg/.

>>103997282
I know what you mean. I intended to self-marathon Dandy on my own via the [as] site/app but I eventually spanned that out to about a week of casual watching.

The reactions of premier shows
The pure community/shitposting of the reruns
The cant-think-of-the-name post block where you see shit like Robin, GITS, dollfag, etc and so on go HOURS after the block ends go on.

Toonami and these threads kept me going for a long ass motherfucking time. I seen these one Saturday night and thought wow what the fuck and then seen watching [as] in the backround noise as I was playing either World of Warcraft or Project1999 and seen a KLK promo and it changed my fucking life. Gave me some want to get through the week. I wake up counting down the days left until Toonami, I have my phone to remind me for the average time that Ratings threads start and at least twice a day when I know a Toonami thread is dead I pray for an emergency Toonami News thread and sometimes I see thinly veiled Adult Swim threads as Toonami threads. I only come to /co/ for Toonami and South Park.

>>103996461
That’s not the easiest thing to do but luckily I took screen caps. Other shows in the top 10 were Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Archer and Venture Bros. Mostly if not always, recently aired episodes. It’s almost as if animated series targeting adults do good business on iTunes.

I don’t recall seeing a bump stating they spent 3 million on FLCL 2/3 but that comes out to 250,000 an episode if you divide it by 12. So yeah, less than 300,000 an episode like I thought. Was it worth it? I’d say at the very least, AS has spent more money on less worthwhile shit.
>>
>>103996654
101 in series for a 6 episode show that wrapped up close to a month ago doesn’t sound too bad actually. Those charts are dominated by recent premiere seasons and shows that are temporarily on deep discount. Like 5.99 for 13 episodes.

Regular schedule on Thanksgiving weekend.

>>103997282
>>103997337
Yeah, Toonami General is the primary reason I've stuck around as long as I have. I started at some point during the Kill La Kill period, and I really enjoyed that stretch of time because of how diverse the schedule was, thanks to most of the shows lasting no longer than 24 episodes; it allowed for a good rotation of smaller name anime.

Michiko and Hatchin, Akame ga Kill, Dimension W, etc. They weren't always good, but even if they were bad, joining in with Toonami General to riff it and cheer on the characters we liked. Akame ga Kill in particular was objectively terrible, but it was dumb fun, the commentary in the threads were great, and it even had some likeable characters.

Now, the only shows on Toonami I actively watch are Super and JoJo, and in the case of the former, it's more out of nostalgia than genuine enjoyment; and it may be rose-tinted glasses, but I feel like the General commentary on those shows isn't as good as some of the older ones.

The long-runners is definitely what killed my interest in the block. The best thing about the 12-24 episode shows was that, even if they were so-bad-they're-bad, you just had to wait until something replaced it. That can't be done with long-runners; they will damn near forever dominate the block.

Also, the other great thing about the shorter series is that they typically were on the more obscure side; I wouldn't have ever watched half of them if I saw them listed on Hulu or whatever. I feel like it's the same for a lot of the former viewers of Toonami, and it's related to the ratings decline.

Not sure how much life Toonami has left, though. These numbers are pretty bad. I'm thinking 2020 will be where either it's dropped, or condensed to four hours at most.
>>
>>103997465
It was one of their weekly bumps I just happened to catch. And possibly less than 250k, assuming other expenses like Demarcos constant trips and general advertising were factored into that 3mil figure
>>
>>103997465
Who in the hell is buying individual episodes of Family Guy at $2 a pop? I can’t imagine that is something flying off the shelves. Which is why this business about FLCL topping iTunes is like a gold medal in the special Olympics.
>>
>>103997483
>Those charts are dominated by recent premiere seasons and shows that are temporarily on deep discount
hahahah oh god. did you think it was 101 overall on itunes? Sorry I guess I forgot to clarify that it was in animation only.
>>
>>103997520
It’s not rose tinted goggles, the commentary has dropped off significantly, likely for reasons you have given about long runners. Most of them are just so dull you can’t even make fun of them. Black Clover generates a little bit of bantz but nothing near the old days. Stuff like AoT is just too damn boring to even think of witty comments for

>tank ratings for a normal night for a marathon no one wants

>takes a few weeks to undo some of this damage
>oops another 2 weeks of marathons
I have no qualms with the end of year marathons since I always have better shit to do then, but this is still looking to explode the already feeble numbers
>>
>>103997603
No I figured you meant just animation. Considering the service has hundreds of animated series, Alt still being 101 after it’s been over for about a month is pretty decent yeah?
>>
>>103997652
No. It's not. I mean, you could just go look at the charts and see for yourself. It is not at all dominated by currently airing seasons or even discounted seasons. It is being outsold by The Pink Panther Season 1. It has also dropped to 103 from the time Im writing this lmfao. Maybe I am asking too much of it? I dont know if only a month out from airing I was already losing to Lego Star Wars:The Complete Brick Saga I would be pretty disappointed. I dont know the numbers so maybe Lego Star Wars at No.66 is pulling in tens of thousands of paid downloads so being behind them isn't that bad. I doubt it though.
>>
>>103997584
>Who pays for Family Guy episodes at 2 bucks a pop
First of all, those also factor in individual downloads from season passes. Probably a lot of those sales aren’t individual.

As for who buys Family Guy on iTunes. People who don’t watch live TV I would figure.

This is part of the current content distribution landscape. Some people don’t prefer streaming videos and like to download content to watch when they don’t have a decent internet connection or want to avoid exceeding their data plan. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s not expensive, it’s the shows you like whenever you want access to them and content is available just about as soon as it airs. People have adapted to this.
>>
>>103997465
I guess it gives them a show to rerun infinitely, but it still really doesn’t seem like it was worth the time and money investment required. This wasn’t one of their typical western scribbles they pay some retard to make, this was a long term joint development with a studio in another country. Toonamifags have bitched for years that Toonami needs original productions to draw an audience, and AS was probably banking on that supposed demand when they greenlit this. The fact that it didn’t draw much of any new crowd to the block, and that Alternative had comically huge drops in ratings from Super, likely was not an expected outcome. Of course you can argue Super always has big losses, but this was WORLD PREMIERE content, not just some throwaway show they got the license to too late.

Again, I don’t think they took an L on the show, they at least got their investment back. But I would be genuinely shocked to see Toonami ever get further exclusive content, let alone another anime continuation/reboot. There is that short Scavengers thing and whatever that project Genndy is working on, but those were in motion way back in 2017, and the Genndy project has no confirmation of where it’s intended to air, or if it’s even a full fledged series. So I don’t count those.
>>
>>103997717
You sound like a delusional adult swim executive or something. "Oh yeah our streaming services suck but its ok, lots of people will watch tv by paying per episode so they can carry around terabytes of content to watch whenever they want at some point in the future for the 5% of the time in your life where you wont have an internet connection"

Yeah, sounds like a huge market share of people there.

Everyone who is worth advertising to has an internet connection good enough to stream netflix on their phone. Almost everywhere has a decent internet connection. And the places that dont will have one soon, including cars and all sorts of places.

The future is in streaming skinny bundles and the amount of people willing to pay 15$ for 6 episodes when you can get the entire library of netflix and hulu for 25$ a month is minimal.
>>
>>103997806
>he doesn’t have terabytes of Family Guy on his phone
>>
>>103997709
Looks like that classic Pink Panther shorts. 82 half hours worth for 35 bucks, that’s a pretty nice deal for vintage cartoon fans. Those sorts of deals do tend to chart well on iTunes as well.

Currently the top 9 episodes are Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers and several Family Guy eps. I see AoT is topping the season chart because each 12-13 ep batch is 5 bucks.

Don’t underestimate the popularity of LEGO stuff, particularly Star Wars LEGO stuff.
>>
>>103997824
The one I'm looking at is 32 episodes for 20$ currently sitting at around the low 70s.

I dont know the actual numbers so I am just going off total guesses, but I dont know a single person who watches tv through itunes purchases. Let alone through the itunes app. And I dont know why anyone would when almost every network has their own streaming service nowadays. The niche of "but you can watch this whenever you want on itunes and no other formats if you pay 3$! It's sort of like owning it, but worse!" is just so small I imagine.

How many sales do you think Beavis and Butthead at 18$ for 11 episodes is doing really? 3k? More? less? I can't imagine more than 3 thousand people buying the itunes of Beavis and Butthead vol 3.
>>
>>103997806
I’m sure a ton more people watch Family Guy live on FOX and probably more people watch it on Hulu after it airs or catch the rerun on Adult Swim. None the less, those consumers exist and for a show like FG it’s just gravy but for Archer, Venture and FLCL sequels those downloads likely make up a larger ratio of their total viewership and help them succeed.
>>
>>103997926
Speaking from personal experience, when I didn’t have cable I bought the season passes for Regular Show to stay up to date. I also bought that for Robotomy and considering that show flopped hard, I’m glad I was able to throw some money directly at it, not that it did any good.

I’ve bought the first season of the 80s TMNT and all of Megas XLR mainly because iTunes was the only option for owning Megas.

I have no idea how many downloads chart toppers on iTunes manage but I expect companies look less at the total sales and more at how a show compares to its peers on the service. But to be honest I’m shocked there was ever a point that a million people watched an episode of Dimension W live on TV at 12:30 at night. So who knows what shows are pulling off on iTunes now and how it compares to Hulu if a series is on both.

I remember foolishly thinking that 2018 would be the breakout year where we'd see a huge shifting of the block in a favorable way, but oh boy was I wrong!

Since we'd have a few free slots in 2019, let's hope he's smarter about them. Toonami could've been the perfect vehicle to rotate out short series and use that as a liaison to sponsor future seasons of the more popular shows on TV; the audience would be there and being the premiere place (or close to), ratings would rise.

Given how ratings look now, it's now clear that Comcast subscribers were a notable part of the Nielsen lineup.

I think something dumb like How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord would do very well on the block. How many times do we have to see ratings go up when tits and waifus are on the screen for them to understand if they want the demo to go up, PANDER to that demo? AgK and Black Clover did better than other shows because they're just mindless fun to chat about, there's always something going on. We'll see how things go next year when things finally start ending but fuck if I'm not bored with this whole lineup.

He obviously knew he was capable of kicking. The problem is that All Might only really punches and Deku's initial fighting style was entirely based on that (down to the names). Hell, the only reason he went to kicking at all was because breaking his arms anymore would render them useless. Otherwise he'd still be punching away.
>>
>>104003287
>>104003033
How out of shape is Deku? There's no way Japanese teenagers are that scrawny that they can't throw punches.
>>
>>104003833
The thing is, he's in pretty good shape, but constantly breaking your arms in the middle of puberty no less is not a good thing, even if you have Superman-esque strength. What >>104003287 mentioned won't be an issue until Season 3 anyway.
>>
>>104003287
You have to understand.
He has an entire episode of him trying to figure out what he can do.
And it took him like 3 days to figure out he can kick.
Kids slow. Regardless of copying or not the first thought after hearing don't use your arms is to kick.

>They may as well go all in, especially if they truly have access to those shows for cheap
I remember Demarco saying something along the lines of Clover being cheap and practically forced upon them. Given how little he paid for the damn show, it's certainly holding up its part of the bargain.
This also means that the internet is not always a good source of what's popular, as seen by very high request shows not doing well relative to their peers in similar times.
>>
>>104004026
The problem with those high request shows is largely that Toonami gets them after their popularity spike drops, combined with the fact that most regular anime viewers likely watched them on some streaming site by the time Toonami starts airing it.

Smaller name shows like Black Clover may not get a ton of requests, but it also helps that a lot of people haven't prematurely watched it. Plus, presumably they're also a fair bit cheaper than the Flavor of the Month shows.
>>
>>104004026
It was. There was a big push at the start of the year to get Black Clover on as many resources as possible to drive up its popularity in Jump. Obviously it worked considering it’s manga sales are up and it’s anime went right into another season. Demarco doesn’t actually like the show, it was just cheap. Also why he had no issue deathslotting it despite its strong numbers, which has done nothing but make him look like a fool for months now.

I will admit, the early distaste for the series was warranted. The anime doesn’t find its pace till about 20 episodes in, which since Toonami got it so early in its run, no one knew would happen. I definitely think there is strong merit to the idea that shows people ask for are shows people won’t watch, because it they are asking for it they already watched it
>>
>>104004256
>>104004302
Toonami Axiom #1: If it's being requested, it's already been seen.
>>
>>104002285
Ya’ll were just deluding yourselves. Big changes weren’t likely until 2019. Especially when no one expected Toonami to get 10pm and even 9pm. More AoT and JoJo were to be expected and until they got pushed back it looked like SAO and One-Punch Man would fill up slots by the end of the year. There was also the looming possibility for Re: Tokyo Ghoul and we knew FLCL would fill a slot most of the year.

When Jason first mentioned diversity, he didn’t even imply it would be happening soon. It sounded like he was talking about 2019. So it was honestly surprising they got Pop Team Epic to replace Kai of all things. But then it was back to the usual until they announced Megalo Box and finally got Mob Psycho 100.

Next year long series may leave and lose the block an hour rather than make room for more variety but at this point pretty much no one would disapprove of Toonami shrinking back.
>>
>>104004256
It seems like Demarco gets stuck in the past. MHA and Mob were both in the top 5 requests in early 2016. Neither were an option for the block at the time. Rather than move on, Demarco held on on tight to both requests and pursued them till he got them, over 2 years later after everyone has already moved on to something else. Toonami viewers aren’t going to wait for a show to hit the block, there’s no guarantee it ever will, an open slots are so rare anyway that it’s a long shot the show you like will get the on anyway. I think Demarco get these shows based on years old demand and expects the turnout to be the same
>>
>>104004403
Demarco said they were moving away from long runners. Since then, he relicensed Kai, and got Boruto and MHA. On top of that, Black Clover got another season, as did Jojo. These aren’t short term shows, each of these eats up a slot for a long time. And as you said, Toonami also has many shorter legacy shows to fill in the rare opening.

I don’t know why you are suggesting Mob is diversity, considering it’s been on Demarco’s radar since 2016. The facts are that these long choices this year have prevented the promised diversity both this year and next at minimum. The unexpected extensions to the block have done nothing but encourage the addition of more reruns. It’s comical that ONE odd show in PTE, a choice dictated by Manning, NOT Demarco, is enough for people to say Demarco delivered on his promise
>>
>>104003956
No u gotta understand. To Deku, everything's about All Might. That time was spent trying to figure out how he could use his hands because Deku has tunnel vision and had been doing nothing but adapting All Might's fighting style to himself (instead of, y'know, making it his own). If you asked him how someone with no use of his arms would fight, he'd obviously say with legs. But like many people he's not too quick to apply that same logic to himself.

A lot of his character is seated in how he wants to be just like All Might and how he does whatever he has to to be like All Might. And All Might is a terrible teacher who only encouraged it until it almost ended in him being permanently crippled. That itself is more a character flaw for him to overcome than anything.
>>
>>104004256
It’s not like Black Clover doesn’t regularly stay in the top 5 most popular on Crunchyroll with MHA, One Piece and Boruto. It’s currently #1 with Boruto 3rd and MHA 5th but those rankings adjust daily based on whichever had a new episode. Even during the early days when internet reviewers slammed the anime it did well on CR. It’s definitely popular. Currently JoJo and AoT are 12th and 13th, Shippuden is 16th, HxH is 24th, DBS is 29th and Mob is all the way at 79th. Also One Piece is 6th and SAO is 7th. That Time I Was Reincarnated as a Slime is 2nd and Goblin Slayer is 4th.

When AoT was in premieres it was in the top 5 regularly and Super was usually top 3 until it ended and was notorious for crashing the service due to heavy traffic when a new episode streamed.
>>
>>104004592
As I recall he said they were running out of options for long runners so they had to try other genres. That was when they couldn’t get MHA or Boruto. That obviously changed. Did people really expect them to start filling every opening with shows of other genres? That’s ridiculous. It was sure to be gradual change. You have to admit Mob isn’t a DBZ or Naruto clone and FLCL isn’t primarily an action show. Now there’s Megalo Box which is a drama heavy sports anime. All those plus PTE and the lower action direction that AoT and JoJo went this season definitely diversified the kinds of shows that were on Toonami this year. But on the other hand there’s 4 versions of Naruto and HxH which inspired Naruto and both Super and Kai. So the ratio is still terrible despite the 11:30-1AM part of Toonami not being Naruto or DBZ clones.
>>
>>104004433
Not to mention he outright told people both shows were never coming to the block. Who would wait to watch it elsewhere knowing that?
>>
>>104004956
Maybe MHA S4 and Mob S2 will actually air as near simuldubs. I wouldn't mind waiting a few days to see them like that in a format

We'll see how far we get with MHA by April. We haven't even hit the end of Season 2 yet and Season 3 is about 15-20 episodes.

Manga reader here, and it's not true. It still doesn't have an Ame Talk episode or a promotion from Oda.
>>
>>104004929
Oh fuck right off, FLCL has been an AS anime staple for decades. Not being long running shonen isn’t what constitutes as diversity, being the kind of show Toonami doesn’t normally air is. I don’t care if AoT and Jojo are low action, they are still the same old schlock from years prior. Yea Mob is different, and had we not known Demarco wanted it for years I’d certainly count it. Megalo is something, but I attest it’s similar appearance to Bebop for why it got on, not necessarily that it’s a sport show.

Nobody is saying every open slot would go to something different, but we sure as shit didn’t expect to have MORE long running shonen than before he made the diversity claim. The logic seemed to be they were running out AND the audience was getting bored with the same old shit year after year. The biggest insult this year was that they paid actual money from the budget to relicense Kai, only for it to flounder a few weeks in. We finally cut down on the on the Dragonshit, and 12 weeks later is back to plague the block for another half decade
>>
>>104005214
>it didn’t get every push possible so what you said isn’t true

>>104005013

>>
>>104005221
Quite a lot of people don’t consider FLCL to be appropriate for Toonami due to lacking action, though I don’t agree with them. And while the original played to death on ASA it’s presence on Toonami was minimal till early this year and these sequels aren’t like the original, especially Alternative.

You’re coming up with a lot of semantics as to why those shows don’t count toward diversifying the block. It’s probably also Viz pushing that got MB on this fast. The Bebop inspired visuals definitely helped. They weren’t about to get Haikyu or just any sports anime. MB seems tailor made for ASA. The reasons don’t really matter though. Even if it’s a fluke it’s a welcome change of pace.
>>
>>104005013
HeroAca Season 4 simuldub seems like a longshot, I imagine we'll get a delayed dub broadcast similar to AoT.
>>
>>104005498
There are actually tons of shorts, it's just that only a few get memed in the west. You're probably right, though, you might get them to stick around for a full night of Inferno Cop, but I doubt they'd care about the gay skeleton wageslave
>>
>>104005837
Same day as Japan hasn’t been doable for more than 12 episodes thus far. Usually only up to 6. That’s a problem for a regular broadcast schedule. AoT season 2 managed 2 weeks behind Japan but slipped to 3 over time.

MHA season 4 could probably do 2-3 weeks behind Japan for an entire season if they got materials early enough but same week as Japan isn’t feasible for the entire season. FUNi probably wants to premiere the dub of MHA the same day as Japan as long as possible and Toonami does not suit that plan well because a production delay could leave Toonami without an episode to air or a holiday weekend will put Toonami behind. But we’ll see what happens.
>>
>>104005835
It’s no different from your semantics why the same old shit is somehow diverse. FLCL aired twice on Toonami before the reboot was announced in 2014. That’s another factor why FLCL doesn’t count towards this diversity business, it was hard confirmed to air on Toonami way back in late 2014 at its initial announcement. Long before the talks of diversity ever started, or even needed to start because the block wasn’t in dire straits like it is now.

Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate stuff like Mob and Megalo incoming. But I don’t discount that we have gotten way more long running shonen this year than we expected to based on tweets earlier this year
>>
>>104006237
>>104005837
MHA can’t do that on Toonami unless they double up what we currently have to get caught up in time. It’s probably gonna end up like Black Clover, it will air on the block but be episodes ahead on the Funi stream

Let’s break down the future just for shits


>Dragon Ball Z Kai - May 14, 2022
>My Hero Academia - September 7, 2019
By this point, S4 will be likely completed in Japan or close to it. Unless Funi decides to be a cunt about it, S4 will kick right off. If the schedule holds as it has, they very well could have a near simuldub of S5 for 2020. Even if not, S4 takes us to early 2020
>Naruto: Shippuden - November 23, 2024
>Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - TBD
>Dragon Ball Super - November 2, 2019
You are kidding yourself if you think this won’t loop right back to episode 1
>Mob Psycho 100 - February 2, 2019
Good chance for a short replacement. Also good chance it’s a legacy show like SAO or Tokyo Ghoul. This is a tossup slot that could go various ways, and depending what they pick, could chance twice in 2019
>Attack on Titan - November 10, 2018
The second cour starts in April, so let’s assume May for it starting on Toonami. That takes us to fall 2019 for the end. This is the second slot to squeeze in a short show, same as the Mob slot
>JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable - June 15, 2019
Unless AS finally takes the choice away from Demarco like they did with One Piece, he will go straight into part 5 and usher in even lower ratings. That would go till 2020.
>Black Clover - TBD
Second season would end early 2020, but if it continues to succeed in Japan it will probably get yet another season
>Hunter X Hunter - June 22, 2019
Our single opportunity to lose a long runner. A lot of hope and dreams are going into this slot. They could get something short and have this be another rotating slot, or get Fairy Tail or some shit. Who knows?
>FLCL: Alternative - December 1, 2018
Megalo Box replaces this and AoT moves down to this slot. Another slot for a potential new show early 2019
>One-Punch Man - November 3, 2018
PTE goes here it’s a rerun who cares
>Lupin III: Part IV - December 8, 2018
Rerun who cares
>Samurai Jack - January 25, 2020
>>
>>104006613
So with this, come 2019 we have between 4-6 openings for the entire year. That really doesn’t leave room for much of anything new if you factor in legacy shows that are guaranteed slots eventually. And this doesn’t even take into consideration the very real possibility of a cut to the schedule, as well as the chance that the 2019 budget is decreased come January based on recent ratings.

Speaking of Garo, why haven't we gotten Ushio to Tora?
>>
>>104006657
Also I’ll add, Mob, PTE and Megalo are doing something we don’t often see on Toonami. They are only 12 episode shows. Usually, they avoided these because they didn’t like doing changes, but this is the third one in a year. If that keeps up, it greatly increases the amount of rotations a single slot has. It may just be coincidence and they still prefer 24 minimum shows, but more 3 month commitments like this can go a long way to making the long runner riddled lineup not feel so stagnant
>>
>>104006281
I think you mean 2016 regarding FLCL sequels. The original reran in 2013 into 2014. Just two runs. 12 weeks is a drop in the bucket.

So then we can agree it’s all just semantics whether it’s diversifying Toonami or not.

I never said it discounted the bad ratio of unmovable long series they currently have. But they’ve gotta start somewhere. I hope to see them continue to use 11:30-12:30 for finite series that aren’t bread and butter shounen and hopefully increase to 3-4 finite premieres to balance out the hefty load of unending series. I’d be lying if I said I expected more than 3 finite premiere slots at one time in 2019 though. But 3 could be sufficient if they run several 12-13 episodes shows using just those slots.

The ratio has gotten worse with the additional of Boruto and DBZ Kai into prime time but they gained space for those rather than ate another rotation slot. So at least there’s that. The potential concern now is if they lose slots if they will drop rotation slots in the process. Hopefully they won’t.

>I swear you people are stuck in 2008. Almost all modern shows are getting dubbed these days
Imagine being this dumb. The majority of shows do not get dubbed.
>The only reason something doesn’t get dubbed anymore is that there is some kind of trouble with the license
Or maybe companies realized that just because you dubbed something doesn't mean people will buy it? The original anime bubble burst because licensors scooped up any show they could while trying to find the next Dragonball, wasted a ton of money dubbing them, and then tossed them into the market. If a show today isn't dubbed it's either unlicensed, or deemed not worth the financial investment.

Even it's simuldub barely qualified as one, it was a weekly release but the first dub episode premiered like 2 months after the subbed version ended.

But Crunchyroll seems to be pushing the series very hard lately so maybe they'll be able to do it quickly this time to show off their independence.

Or maybe they're advertising for Dark Horse Manga's new official English release of Volume 1 the Mob Psycho 100 manga. Buy it now.

I hated the first 3 episodes, but checked out the rest and Mob Psycho's pretty good. I just find it kind of funny that all these animes try to stand out as being parodies of anime, but only become good when they stop the god-awful tropes and do their own thing with their own characters and their own "unsanctioned insight into the human psyche as viewed by a Japenese recluse who is tried of all the bullshit that all the other Japenese recluses are spouting."

Pretty much
If the current Toonami rating debacle proves anything, it's that you can't listen to people on twitter and license the shows that were big ~6 months to a year before getting on Toonami, and you have to support the DB/Naruto crowd with low key but still reasonably quality shows that haven't already been watched by a huge part of your audience

Serious question, why didn't DeMarco buy our CrunchyRoll back when it first started and he had a lot more money to play with. He should have seen streaming taking off like it did seeing how well the black market ones online were doing at the time. He even tried to do a Toonami streaming service at some point (it failed of course). Why not just buy out CR when it was small enough to do so to gain that early market share and expertise for the anime streaming industry that the CrunchyRoll team would have bought him? Why even agree to run ads for a service slowly killing your channel? Is he retarded and why is the answer yes?

Dragon Ball Z Kai will finish two runs and we still won't be done with Shippuden.
>>
>>104023470
If Kai keeps falling like it has, it’s either going to be moved late or removed from Toonami and added to weekdays. Really it’s not even a question of “if”, because if ratings for it are already this low, Buu will usher in lows we have never seen before
>>

I don’t see you putting out any OC, Demarco. Unless you consider this trash block to be OC

Blum will do anything AS wants him to. He was the soba guy in Alt, and he probably got paid western show money for that small role. You will notice that both FLCL series don’t use the standard VA talent pool

>>104026051
The few shows people actually tune in for would do even worse and the shows people avoid would bring lows we never dreamed of. I don’t even think Super could stand being dead last
>>
>>104024912
But it’s not working, and anyone with a brain knew this wouldn’t work. Kai was already struggling to hold on to Dragontards. The first few weeks weren’t terrible, especially for a rerun, but the realization that it’s gonna take 5 years to get through this shit again is hitting people now, and even the biggest dragontards aren’t bothering with Kai. They just show up at a really convenient timeslot for Super, then leave

I swear I heard someone say that before, but I think you're talking about Aisha Clanclan's voice actress, Lenore Zann. Melissa Fhan, Ed's VA, is still doing roles regularly.
Steve Blum was in the new FLCL, and did you forget what animation block he hosts?

Considering ONE of those commercials pays him more than an average 26 episode anime role, yea I think thats a smart decision on his part.

Anime VA work pays absolute piss. You either do it because you enjoy anime work, or because you need to build your portfolio. Blum was the latter, he isn’t very fond of anime, ironic considering he is the face of it for many people

Unironically 0%. I’m too lazy to look at the cast list, but I know it’s been long enough that at least one of them doesn’t do dub work anymore for whatever reason. On top of that, there’s literally almost no demand for that to happen in the first place, so no one is gonna waste their time dubbing something that old for no profit

>>
>>104028415
You say it’s horseshit but there’s other fans who think the 7 hour block has an incredible line-up. Personally I feel it lacks balance but all of the premieres are popular and several are very well liked. Baring JoJo which is clearly more niche than people thought it was, I’m not convinced random unheard of shows would be doing better. This could very well be as good as the current era of television will allow Toonami to do given even DBS is struggling. But I guess we’ll never know.

He has like one moment where he tells a kid to stop being a cunt and that's it.

This. I don't really get why everyone creams their pants for this show. The only good thing about it is the waifus and that can't save this show forever.

Because the writers of S1 & S3 understood the concept of subtly.

Teen years but wants to fuck older women.

>>104034833
How many teens?
>>
>>104034873
Dunno, but old enough to want to stick his dick into any female character he can find.
>>
>>104034674
Progressive was trying to be a sequel, while Alternative was focused on telling a different story. Progressive tried way too hard referencing season 1 with no substance. Canti didn't do anything despite having a focus for 2 episodes.
>>
>>104034917
anyone else think progressive sucked because it was made by no talent progressive liberal types that cared more about having a black haruko and a LMAO SO DEEP teenage girl zombie dream each episode that never panned out

i still have no idea what any of those new characters names were
>>
>>104034915
And is he replacing the normal protagonist entirely, or just he shows up and perspective shifts so he's the main focus, or what?
>>
>>104034952
Replacing the normal protag entirely.

Retroactively, or just at this point?

Alt is also way after actual shit and not even just because of the finale, it was shit from episode 1
>>
>>104034714
>subtle
>NEVER KNOWS BEST HEEHEE
>MORE DIEBUSTER SHIT
>IT WAS MARS ALL ALONG ZOMG SO COOOL

Nah. Just because it was slow paced and nothing happened doesn't mean it understood subtlety at all. It was just as filled with vapid references that mean nothing and do nothing besides copy the original for the sake of copying it. Why the fuck is never knows best in alt? It was just an image that Tsurumaki saw and thought was cool so he put it in. It's not some fucking deep lore saying that epitomizes FLCL.

God the sequels were such rushed trash. And Iwai fucked up Haruko so much that even her VA called him out on twitter.

>>104035932
If nothing else, the iron doing it's iron think in Alt was way better than FUCKING MOCHI.

Actually, I'll say, "Tommorow night I'll be on the thread, probably about ten minutes before Kai starts, and I'll post best girl."
