Pre-Launch FAQ:

SamMan wrote:Q: When is Toonami coming back?!
A: Saturday, May 26th - starting at midnight.

Q: Is Steve Blum going to voice TOM?
A: Yes.

Q: What shows are going to be on?
A: Here is the schedule for launch night, taken from AS's official schedule page.

12:00 AM - Bleach
12:30 AM - Deadman Wonderland
1:00 AM - Casshern Sins
1:30 AM - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
2:00 AM - Ghost in the Shell
2:30 AM - Cowboy Bebop
3:00-6:00 AM - Block Rerun

The bold shows are new acquisitions.

Q: Are we getting a new TOM? How about animation, will that be recycled?
A: The relaunch of Toonami will feature new animation and bumps, so not recycled. We will also see an updated version (slightly different from original) of TOM 3.0. The Absolution will also be updated as well. So, new, new, new!

Q: Is SARA going to make an appearance?
A: Due to monetary restrictions, SARA will not be in the relaunch. As more people watch Toonami, their budget will increase and SARA will make her way back into the show.

Q: Why two new shows instead of three?
A: Money.

Q: Why don't they bring back classics like DBZ and Naruto?
A: The rights to those shows are owned by their competitors or are out of their price range.

Q: Is Toonami back in HD?
A: Yes, but it will all be upscaled HD (you can hardly notice the difference). HD cartoons/anime will also be aired in HD. Some shows were not made in HD so they will be aired at their native resolution.

Q: How do we get Toonami more shows, time, animation, TOM, SARA, and everything else?
A: In order for Toonami to become bigger and better, they will need a bigger budget. In order to get a bigger budget, they need ratings. So, watch, watch, watch!

Q: How can I show my appreciation to AS for bringing back Toonami?
A: Tweet them (@adultswim), use any toonami hashtag, post about it on your favorite forums, and lastly watch it every Saturday to make sure it never gets cancelled again!

Q: Are there any Toonami promos out?
A: Keep an eye out on this thread.

It's maybe an April fools joke to piss off old time tooonami fans out there.

Didn't I just say this was just for April 1st?

But I don't expect it to come back either. This was also probably a way to celebrate Toonami's 15th anniversary.

EDIT: Oh yeah, before anything else is said, reaction upon this was quite radical as well as spectacular among the fans. It seems they REALLY want Toonami to stay. In my opinion, it would be a shrewd move as I know Toonami for being a block famous for the Anime that's aired, and that would actually be a great idea If Toonami had Saturday nights airing all the anime that's on there. There are also haters of Toonami, as well as the other haters that aren't old school.

When I saw that I heard something pop turns out it was the brain tumor caused by Problem solverz & Fred the show exploding because of the sheer Nostalgia trip pulsing through my brain. It may have been a April fools joke but fuck it I needed this. I just wish they do this every Saturday night Like they did back when Adult swim started.

It is an April Fools prank I can guarentee that. All I have to say is thank you for doing this Adult Swim and also fuck you for even trying to tease that. Let's Face it, if Tom hosted Adult Swim, it would be soooooo much better.

Like my edit says, it would be a great idea If Toonami aired Saturdays nights as an Anime Block. It would be more fitting, just as long as they appeal it to an older audience. This also may give Toonami the freedom to air anime that was previously on CN almost unedited. If they were going to re-air Toonami, they probably wouldn't be using TOM3.

And no, I can't say it's a prank. For me, it's a celebration. Happy Anniversary Toonami. A belated anniversary that is.

Steve Blum wrote:“Yo, Toonami Faithful…
Thanks for tuning in. Hope it kicked in some happy memories and kicked off a happy April! As you (hopefully) know, bringing Toonami back isn’t up to me. I’m just a voice guy. Many of you want to know how to make your voices heard. Maybe start here… Go to “programming” then “Toonami”
Love you guys from the bottom of my servos.”

So put simply it was just a prank by Adult Swim as he came back to voice TOM specifically for Adult Swim. Feel free to hit up the feedback if you care about the show.

A prank? Oh I'm sorry, are you offended? I'm just happy to see Toonami again, It's not like it's going to be back immediately.

I was just relieved they actually SHOWED the new Bleach ep. Half the time they decide to celebrate the 1st by either showing some random garbage or showing the normal stuff, but f**king with it (anyone remember the "Gas Attack in the Shell" or the "whole AT movie in a tiny box in the corner of the screen". AS may be great, but the people in charge have a nasty tendency of making "screw you" decisions (Like the "let's move the last few episodes of Code Geass to 5:00 AM, then move it back two or three weeks later, or doing that to that other show about the racing mechs (I actually missed an episode of that, due to the fact that I forgot that Mon at 5:00AM actually means you have to pick up the recording on Sunday (AS is not always great about realizing that the day changes at midnight and adjuting their tags accordingly , there have been several times when I have heard shows put on in the Saturday Night block after midnigt timed as "Saturday's at 12:30")
"For I have heard the Song of War, and to me, it sounds just like "Please, Mister Custer.""

This literally had a tear come to my eye....I remember watching all these shows back in middle school. I remember when Tom was a chubby little guy. Even if I had some of the full seasons on DVD its great to see that they were on TV again. My favorite line was "You got 99 problems and these bitches are everyone" hahaha Toonami was always destined to be on late like Adult swim. Thanks for this great Nostalgia.

I'd have to agree with this. It is very misleading.

I'm not sure about never, but I do agree that nothing is probably likely to happen. Though I could be wrong.
