Toonami

0

Afternoons used to be fun for me, when I was a teenager because of an animated action oriented programming block called, Toonami (Toonami came into being in 1997). Toonami, in my opinion, was a programming block geared originally towards boys because the majority of the animation that acquired for this block was about superheroes or giant killer mechas that threatened the universe. Toonami did introduce American audiences to one of Japan’s most popular super heroines, Sailor Moon.

Toonami showed mostly anime, like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto, but they also showed animated series about superheroes and teenage heroes like Batman: The Animated Series and The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest, as well. Thanks to Toonami, I was introduced to anime for the first time and believe you and me, my parents blame this block for my worship of anime, as the best form of 2D animation out there. Toonami, in my opinion, was one of Cartoon Network’s best programming blocks because it was creative, had excellent CGI animation, had good interaction with the audience, and a bit of philosophy for everyone to think about.

Currently, Toonami airs on Saturday nights from 12 am until 3:30 am on Adult Swim.
