I guess I should make a thread with all the new shows Toonami is picking up for anyone interested since these guys get a lot of news coverage.

Toonami To Air Uncensored "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure"
At their San Diego Comic-Con panel, Adult Swim programming block Toonami announced plans to broadcast the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure TV anime. The David Production adaptation of Hirohiko Araki's genre-hopping 1987 ongoing will make its US cable debut in October.

Toonami is streaming a film for November 5, 2016 at 3 AM (which this day is daylight savings): Makoto Shinkai's Children Who Chase Lost Voices.
Children Who Chase Lost Voices centers on Asuna, a girl who spends her solitary days listening to the mysterious music emanating from the crystal radio she received from her father as a memento. However, she embarks on a journey of adventure to find a mysterious boy she just met, and thus comes to know the cruelty and beauty of the world, as well as loss.
The official Facebook page of Adult Swim's Toonami television programming block in the United States announced on Tuesday that it will run the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 television anime beginning on January 7 at 1:00 a.m. EST.

A female paratrooper. A distant future. A vast desert. With limited supply of food and water, her only hope is to catch a Sand Whale from a pack.

Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.

Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
