Ready to take on Monday!
This is a shirt being worn by one of our editors at Adult Swim, Phil. It was created about a decade ago for Adult Swim employees only. It has been misconstrued as being “anti anime,” by some people. Here’s the story: back in the early days of AdultSwim.com’s message boards, there was a vocal minority of posters who passionately hated Adult Swim’s action block, which consisted of several anime shows (some of which were initially slated for Toonami). Our bump writers pulled the phrase “cuz anime is the s uck” from a poster complaining about anime on Adult Swim and ran it as a bump. We chose to make it a t-shirt as a comment on the illiteracy of L33T speak, and internet trolling in general. We wore the shirts as a badge of honor- WE LOVE ANIME, and always will. Adult Swim has been on the air since 2001, and we’ve had a commitment to anime that entire time. We still do. Cus anime is the s uck. ;)
“[Sniper King]’s a superhero? I knew it, I could totally tell cause of the mask and cape! Amazing, I’ve never seen one before.”
- Monkey D. Luffy, One Piece (Episode 264)
The Toonami Trending Rundown for July 26-27, 2014. It’s Comic Con week, and in a week dedicated to Superheroes, Toonami sure wasn’t gonna be left out of the buzz as One Piece begins the Enies Lobby arc, Beware The Batman begins it’s 2nd half, and Cowboy Bebop makes it’s grand return on the block.
As a result, Toonami and every show but Attack on Titan, Bleach and Star Wars trended in the US and Toonami and every show but One Piece, FMA Brotherhood, and Star Wars trended in the mobile app. Unfortunately, I don’t have any worldwide trends to report this week. We did however get some special trends from One Piece with Enies Lobby, as the crew reaches the infamous prison island, as well as Sniper King, as he introduces himself to Luffy and Chopper.
Tune in next week as Samurai Jack begins Season 3 while only two episodes remain for Blue Exorcist, among other great moments from the other shows. See you again next week, and as always, stay gold.
Legend: The number next to the listed trend represents the highest it trended on the list (not counting the promoted trend), judging only by the images placed in the rundown. For the mobile app trends, the listed number of tweets are also sorely based on the highest number shown based on the images on the rundown.

There’s an app for that. Only Toonami on [adult swim] on Cartoon Network.
- On SNK the plan has gone to shit and has therefore been tweaked. Eren is having a nap because he punched himself in the face like a dumbass. Armin discourages this.
- Bleach - Ichigo has been involuntarily freed from the kawaii fishtank by nouveau Aizen. Ichigo, clad in vantablack, attempts to…
With the start of Enies Lobby and the return of Bebop, thereis no denying that tonight was a big night, so it’s only fitting we recap it like the rest:
- Attack on Titan- Eren goes crazy before getting knocked out and sitting on his ass for 20 minutes. Luckily though, Armin was there to give him a…
