Toonami Trending Rundown for April 20-21 and 27-28, 2024

Last Updated on by Daniel Limjoco

“This morning, I remembered something from when I was a kid. I loved Heroes. To fight danger and save those in need, while wearing a Kick Ass costume. Not for a reward, but because it is just. That was the kind of superhero I dreamed of being.”

–          Akira Tendou, Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead (Ep. 05)

This Toonami Trending Rundown is a double-feature for the nights of April 20-21 and 27-28, 2024.

For both the nights of April 20-21 and 27-28, #Toonami trended in the USA on Twitter alongside Ninja Kamui and Zom 100. #Toonami also trended on Tumblr during both nights, with One Piece also trending on the night of April 27.

If you can’t get enough Ninja Kamui, developers G.rev and Rainmaker Productions have created a new video game for the franchise. Titled Ninja Kamui: Shinobi Origins, it’s presently available for preorder on the Nintendo Switch, scheduled for release on Tuesday, May 30, 2024.

Toonami also made a game review for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, the newest addition to the Prince of Persia franchise. It received an 8.5 out of 10 score.

Originally, Jason DeMarco announced that Ninja Kamui will be 12 episodes long, and that this week’s episode would have been the last in the season. However, he and his fellow producers at E&H Animation and Sola Entertainment decided that they needed an extra 13th episode to wrap up the story right. Meaning that next week will be the season finale.

NUNEKIN KAMUI DEMARCO on Twitter: “Reminder for #ninjakamui fans that tonight’s episode 12 is NOT the finale, the finale will be be next week with episode 13! / Twitter”

Reminder for #ninjakamui fans that tonight’s episode 12 is NOT the finale, the finale will be be next week with episode 13!

On Tuesday, Adult Swim posted a new trailer for the new season of My Adventures with Superman on their social media channels, revealing that Season 2 will begin with a one-hour premiere of the first two episodes on Toonami on Saturday, May 25, 2024 from Midnight – 1:00 a.m. EDT. Compared to the previous season, where new episodes premiered on Thursday, Season 2 will be premiering new episodes on Toonami to kick off the block every Saturday at midnight.

Toonami later revealed on Friday the schedule for when My Adventures with Superman joins the block on May 25. Since the premiere will be an hour long, Zom 100 will have the night off to make way, meaning that combined with the Ninja Kamui marathon nights on May 11 & 18, Akira and company will be taking a three-week hiatus. Demon Slayer will also begin a rerun of the Entertainment District arc, with the hour long first episode airing from 2:30-3:30 a.m. On June 1, Zom 100 will return, along with reruns of Ninja Kamui airing at 2:30, while Demon Slayer moves to 3 a.m.


Until next week, we wish everyone celebrating a Happy Passover, and Stay Gold.

Legend: The shows listed are ordered based on their appearance on the schedule. Show trends are listed in bold. The number next to the listed trend represents the highest it trended on the list (not counting the promoted trend), judging only by the images placed in the rundown. For the Twitter tweet counts, the listed number of tweets are also sorely based on the highest number shown based on the images on the rundown.
