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. It's falls into my area for this site in terms of reporting on industry news. Usually, if they report on an anime show that I have a discussion for, I'll post the news there.

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. (The below graphic lists "January 2," but Toonami normally runs on Saturdays.)
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. Coming on March 18th, Adult Swim block Toonami will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with "Sand Whale and Me,” a 25-minute, 5-part short film from legendary director Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor) and Production I.G.
Dream: It looks like reported coronavirus cases in Japan have stayed fairly stable since the country's state of emergency was lifted. Unless there's a major spike in cases, don't think we have to worry about production delays for this season.

Dream: Currently on the third and last volume to the True Tenchi Muyo light novels, Washu. Got about 40-50 pages left to read of it before I'd say I'm done.

Taka: Nice, that reminds me to finish watching Tenchi Geminar and GXP.

Taka: Virtual anime conventions - this year has been taking twists and turns. People are making adjustments. I think I spend over 100 dollars every time I go to Anime Expo each year (counting in total of badge cost, food, transportation, and merchandise).

Taka: I'll be saving money. Though, the pandemic has caused a lot of folks to have reduced hours, took time off, or laid off. Most folks' disposable income is a bit tight.

Dream: Done with TTM. See if I can get a review for it up sometime tonight.

Dream: With Appare Ranman resuming in a few weeks, guess I'll cream through whatever episodes were released before its delay to see if I'll stick with the remaining ones this season.

Taka: So Tenchi Geminar has a school full of mostly girls just like Infinite Stratos and many harem shows.
Jul 8, 2020 6:50:40 GMT
Dream: Yeah. After Tenchi Muyo, Masaki Kajishima dabbled into several other harem titles, some of which not being based in the Tenchi timeline, which all have the same resolution of where the male lead "has them all." But they aren't really as popular.

Taka: I need to finish Geminar and GXP. Just cancel FUNimation which leaves me until July 23rd unless there are at least 3 shows that catch my eye from this season.
