If you've been wondering how well DBZ Kai has been doing in the Toonami ratings, bringing in Kai as the lead in for the block has paid off big time. Ratings news from Toonami Faithful has shown last week's episode pulled in over 1,500,000 viewers. Even cooler, last week's encore episode of DBZ Kai on [adult swim] got a million viewers. We're nearing the end of the Saiyan/Vegeta Saga, so continue to stay tuned to Toonami to see how Goku versus Vegeta plays out. Only Toonami!
21 February 2015
More DBZ Kai is on the way on Toonami, but if you've been missing episodes, [adult swim] will be rerunning the episode from the previous week at 8pm Eastern with the next ep premiering on Toonami the same night. It's a good way to get caught up on Toonami.
27 January 2015
Starting on February 7th, DBZ Kai will be moving to midnight, as Toonami will be cut further to 3 and a half hours, from 12am-3:30am. [Check out the lineup here] and relax, none of the big hits are going anywhere. DBZ Kai will be airing on the 31st at 11:30am as previously planned. If there was ever a time to #WatchToonami, it's now! On February 7th, the ninth episode of Kai serves as the lead in for the TV premiere of the Kill la Kill dub, so if you like irreverent action, it's hard to go wrong with that!
24 January 2015
Good news, DBZ Kai episodes are now on at 11:30am, the start of Toonami! Bad news? Toonami needs your help! The ratings haven't been doing so hot, so Toonami is losing an hour, starting next Saturday, it'll run from 11:30am Saturday to 5pm Sunday. That in of itself might not be a big deal, but if the ratings keep faltering, the block will be shortened further. In order for DBZ Kai and the rest of the block to thrive, you gotta watch Toonami (if you're in the US and have a cable/satellite subscription with Cartoon Network on it. If you have a cable/satellite subscription, you can watch Toonami through [adult swim]'s official stream, link is below.) On Twitter, the Toonami Faithful are rallying behind #WatchToonami to get people to, well, #WatchToonami and they plan to trend every show tonight. Even if you can't stay for the whole block, if you have Twitter and want to help us out, do so!
24 May 2014 HappyAggro here! Just announced at Toonami's Momocon panel and confirmed by Funimation, DBZ Kai is coming to Toonami this fall! And remember, Cooler's Revenge is on Toonami tonight at midnight Eastern time! NOTHING MORE NEEDS TO BE SAID.
17 May 2014 HappyAggro here! A new promo for Cooler's Revenge aired on Toonami! Even has the old promo music and everything!
Movie nights = extra goodies, so who knows what else we might see?
2 May 2014
HappyAggro here! You heard right, a Dragon Ball Z movie is gonna be airing on Toonami, the first Dragon Ball related thing to air on Toonami since the April Fools comeback! It's airing on May 24th at midnight eastern time, right after Attack on Titan. That means Space Dandy and Bleach won't be airing that week. Full lineup for the 24th below!
11:30pm – Attack on Titan
12:00am – DBZ Cooler’s Revenge
1:00am – Naruto Shippuden
1:30am – One Piece
2:00am – Blue Exorcist
2:30am – Black Lagoon
3:00am – Beware the Batman
3:30am - Naruto
4:00am - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
4:30am – Samurai Jack
5:00am – Star Wars: The Clone Wars
5:30am - Sym–bionic Titan
As far as we know, they still don't have rights to the show, but at least they can get the movies now. If you just can't wait to watch (legally!), Nicktoons still has the full movie online. If you can't access it (or want the subs/the original soundtrack), well, it's Dragon Ball Z, you probably know where to find it.
21 May 2012
HappyAggro with the official full Toonami schedule and some important news.
If you want the new Toonami to succeed, you gotta watch it on TV, get your friends to watch it on TV, bug people you know with Nielson boxes, and spread the buzz everywhere because this Toonami is starting off with a limited budget and good ratings will please the network and make them throw more money at it. Money for things like acquiring new shows, getting new animation for TOM, bringing back Sara (she's a pricy lass) and all that good stuff.
The chances of Dragon Ball Z being shown on Toonami again are slim due to, yet again, Nick having a hold of it and the pricing to air it on a consistent basis being higher than Toonami's current budget. So if you want to see DBZ and other programs (like One Piece, Gundam Wing, etc.) on/back on Toonami, WATCH TOONAMI and let Cartoon Network know you're watching). Lightning can strike twice.
The "developing new original anime properties" line has been clarified to mean that they're intending on bringing properties in. As mentioned before, they've been considering One Piece and Gundam Wing (pricey as they are!) along with Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, Fairy Tail, and (finally!) Inuyasha: The Final Act.
The premiere schedule Bleach, Deadman Wonderland, Casshern Sins, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig and Cowboy Bebop from 12am to 3:00am. The schedule then reruns from 3am to 6:00am in case you missed something.
So, no Dragon Ball Z for now, but still a solid lineup. Hopefully you'll be tuning in!
18 May 2012
HappyAggro with GREAT NEWS, EVERYONE. Toonami is back on May 26th! It'll be airing on Saturdays from midnight to 6am. (As in, the evening of the 26th leading into the 27th. Don't tune in early on the 25th, you won't get anything!)
[official teaser site and everything!]
Dragon Ball Z is not confirmed to be coming back just yet, considering the nature of the deal that let it be aired for April Fools in the first place, as well as Kai, GT, and the DBZ movies airing exclusively on Nicktoons. However, the fact that Toonami is back at all is enough reason to never say never!
TV Guide lists a lineup consisting of Bleach, Durarara!!, Fullmetal Alchemist (and Brotherhood), Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG, and FLCL for the big premiere. However, this isn't confirmed and TV Guide shows they'll be premiering a new episode of Bleach then rerunning it twice over the course of the block...and from 4-6am, they intend on rerunning the same four episodes of Bleach, Durarara!!, FMA: Brotherhood, and Cowboy Bebop that started off the block. Of course, Adult Swim is known for not sticking to the schedule, so we'll see if those repeats are actually some new surprises. Interesting enough They're also intending on making "original anime programming for fans"...new season of The Big O perhaps? Who knows? Still, good news. We'll let you know if DBZ comes up. If not, you can always watch the episodes through Nick, or if you want an ol' fashioned Toonami experience, Toonami Aftermath!
Also, this is awesome.
14 April 2012
HappyAggro here again, with some good news from the #BringBackToonami front. (a bit late with it though)
[[follow up tweet from [adult swim]]
Looks like the fans are being heard and we might, just MIGHT end up getting something out of this. Don't let it keep you from holding AS and Cartoon Network to their word though. All the info you need to let Cartoon Network know that you want Toonami back is down below!
3 April 2012
HappyAggro with an announcement that just might be relevant to your interests. For April Fools this year, Toonami came back for one night only on [adult swim], with new bumps made for the night and classic programing INCLUDING the episode of Dragonball Z's Cell Saga with the defeat of Cell. Some of you might have seen it or at least seen some footage from it on Youtube.
That's not all there is to it though. It wasn't just a joke, it was intended to gauge interest in bringing Toonami back.
[check out this informative video all about it]
Now, if they did bring it back, there's probably no chance of seeing Dragon Ball Z airing again as that appears to be solely Nick's territory. However, you'd be dealing with TOM looking more like he should and some damn good programming on the air. Toonami was still highly rated when it went out and it'd be coming back with a bang. You win, the kiddos win, Cartoon Network wins.
Here's what you can do.
1) Go here: www.cartoonnetwork.com/feedbac…
Select the 'Programming' category, select the 'Toonami' topic, then POLITELY request Toonami back. Rabble on about your childhood memories about the program and how kickass it would be for the kids these days to see it or something.
2) Send a polite letter about Toonami. Now that's old school.

3) Help trend #BringBackToonami on Twitter or at least help keep the thing going. Adult Swim is keeping a close eye on it.
4) E-mail the VP of public relations for CN/Adult Swim about Toonami: firstname.lastname@example.org Be respectful, don't spam.
5) Contact Cartoon Network and Adult Swim on their social networking pages on Twitter and Facebook. Adult Swim has already backed their support for it already. No surprise, Adult Swim is made by the same people who did Toonami! Be respectful, appreciate them finding a way to make this a reality, tell 'em what'cha want, don't spam.
