“We’ll go to hell together, the three of us. But in exchange, we’ll save seven billion people.

–          Chrome, Dr. Stone: Stone Wars (Ep. 01)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for May 15-16, 2021. Dr. Stone would make its return to the better cartoon show for it’s long awaited second season, as Senku and the Kingdom of Science prepares for war Tsukasa and the Empire of Might.

On Twitter, #Toonami would trend in the United States alongside My Hero Academia, Food Wars, The Promised Neverland, and Black Clover. My Hero Academia also saw a character trend with Endeavor, as he admits that he has to atone for his sins of neglecting his wife and family. On Tumblr, #Toonami would also make the trending list. The full list, including statistics and tweet counts from the Twitter app, can be seen below.

This week’s feature was a new music video for “Jumping Coffins” by Aesop Rock. You can check it out below.

Fena: Pirate Princess, one of Toonami and Crunchyroll’s upcoming originals by Production IG, will be showcased at the Annecy Festival in France next month. Occurring during the week of June 14-19, Fena will be apart of the festival’s “Work in Progress program”, which gives an in-depth look into the creative stages of several future animated productions.

Until next week, stay safe, be sure to visit and to see what you can do to help the fight against racial inequality, and continue to do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect others by following your local health advisories. Stay at home unless essential purposes require you to go out, practice social distancing by staying six feet/two meters away from one another if possible, get your vaccine shots when you get the opportunity, and wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.

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.
