I for one completely missed it, but apparently Cartoon Network showed Toonami on Adult Swim for this year’s April Fools. Yes, Toonami on Adult Swim. While it hit people by a huge surprise, it was an extraordinary pleasure to hear Tom’s voice again announcing the line ups (and for Tenchi Muyo – even including some “adult” words to describe the show). He even did a review for Mass Effect 3 to complete the whole memory of Tom and what Toonami did for fans.
For anyone that missed it, you can catch the bump segments in two parts. Part 1, Part 2. I didn’t feel the insane amount of nostalgia that is being encountered by some because of Toonami Aftermath – but this just goes to show you that people still love Toonami. Although the big difference now is that we are old enough to actually voice our opinions and maybe with the power of social media we can get the people out there in Cartoon Network to reconsider putting Toonami back on the air. Would you guys be interested in a Toonami/Adult Swim hybrid? Or would it just completely ruin what you remembered about it? Let us know what you think and we will comment about it on the next Podcast.
Let us not forget, that there have been some April Fool jokes that got so much attention that they indeed became real. We have the power to change things to what we see fit; at least that is what Tom 1.0 taught me.
Thanks Tom and thanks to you – the fans.
