They teased the hell out of us on April Fools Day. It was fun, but it was a bit of a dick move on Adult Swim‘s part to catch us off guard like that for a one night only update of Toonami. An evening filled with Dragonball Z, Cowboy Bebop, Big O and more. Oh the glory. Dick move though. But sometimes, good things come out of dick moves. On the Adult Swim Twitter not more than an hour ago, this was tweeted:
Yes. We the people pulled a mob rule move, and Cartoon Network/Adult Swim listened. Toonami is back. Right now, all the tweet says is 5/26/12, which is a week from Saturday. So we’ll apparently know very soon what’s in store for us. But for right now, HOT DAMN!
Update: Adult Swim announced their upcoming programming block in a press release, and Toonami was included. Here’s their blurb:
· TOONAMI – Beginning Saturday, May 26, Adult Swim brings back Toonami, the network’s popular block of anime programming. Airing weekly from midnight to 6 a.m. (ET/PT), in addition to the return of previous series featured in Toonami, Adult Swim is also developing new original anime programming for fans.
