Breaking News: FLCL & Ghost in the Shell to Air on Toonami on October 26th

Tom on the TurntablesHey Guys! Samurai here, and–NOW DON’T GIVE ME THAT LOOK!! I know, I’m behind on the Kids on the Slope review, but I’ve been busy with offline stuff and also writing at Sofa King News! Besides…there’s only so much of that English dub I can stomach. However, I got some breaking news that will more than makeup for it! Toonami announced, VIA their Tumblr page, that the 6 episode OVA FLCL will be returning to the Toonami lineup in the month of October along with the infamous first season of Ghost in the Shell. More after the break.

FLCL Characters (And my Actual Wall Scroll!)FLCL, the six episode anime extravaganza that has enjoyed many encore viewings on the Adult Swim time-slot, will now find a home on the resurrected Toonami time-slot on October 26th. FLCL will take the place of IGPX, which will be pushed down the schedule to the 3:30AM slot for it’s encore run after it’s special 2-episode season finale October 19.

In addition, the first season of Ghost in the Shell will premiere on Toonami on the 26th of October, taking the old Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood time-slot. Ghost in the Shell was a staple of the Adult Swim anime time-slot, enjoying many repeat presentations. 

As it stands, here is how the lineup will look on October 19th before the changes [All times are Central Standard, of course…]:

Bleach 11:00PM
Naruto 11:30PM
One Piece 12:00AM
Soul Eater 12:30AM
Sword Art Online 1:00AM
IGPX 1:30AM
IGPX [Series Finale – Will Replace “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”] 2:00AM
The Big O  2:30AM
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 3:00AM
Cowboy Bebop 3:30AM
Inuyasha 4:00AM
Inuyasha 4:30AM

…And here is how the new line up will look on October 26th with the addition of FLCL. Note that Cowboy Bebop has been once again retired from the Toonami lineup:

Bleach 11:00PM
Naruto 11:30PM
One Piece 12:00AM
Soul Eater 12:30AM
Sword Art Online 1:00AM
FLCL 1:30AM
Star Wars: The Clone Wars 2:00AM
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 2:30AM
Ghost in the Shell [Season 1] 3:00AM
IGPX 3:30AM
Inuyasha 4:00AM
Inuyasha 4:30AM

In addition, it was also announced that there will be some “very exciting stuff” coming in the month of November and for the new year as well. Don’t look for any theories about what it could be from me, as Toonami has proven to be deliciously unpredictable since it’s relaunch.

Oh, and as a bit of shameless plugging, please check out my lastest article over at Sofa King News where I countdown the Seven Best Anime Couples […or seven couples that will last longer than a Kardashian marriage…] You’ll find it to be an interesting read, I hope! Have a great day!
