Toonami Trending Rundown for May 2024

Last Updated on by Daniel Limjoco

“The kryptonite is destroying what little of me that reminds. This is the end. […] I know, we have never had enough time. for that I am sorry Kal-el, Clark, my boy. You have turned your power into a shield for the helpless. You have filled your life with love. You are more than I could have ever hoped for. And maybe one day you’ll forgive me for leaving you again.”

–          Jor-El, My Adventures with Superman (Season 2, Ep. 01)

The Toonami Trending Rundown for the month of May 2024. This past month saw the thrilling season finale of Ninja Kamui, which lead to the return of My Adventures with Superman for its season 2 premiere.

For the season finale of Ninja Kamui on the night of May 4-5, #Toonami trended in the USA alongside Ninja Kamui and Zom 100. One Piece also trended on Tumblr.

During the nights of May 11-12 and 18-19, the regular lineup got a fortnight off as Toonami marathon all 13 episodes Ninja Kamui over the two weeks. No trends were spotted on the first marathon night, but on the second, #Toonami would trend alongside Ninja Kamui on Twitter.

Finally, the night of May 25-26, My Adventures with Superman saw its second season premiere air on Toonami with an hour long special of the first two episodes. This also meant that Zom 100 had to take an additional third week off, in an ironic reminiscence of when the show saw significant delays during its original run in Japan. Both #Toonami and #MyAdventuresWithSuperman trended in the USA on Twitter and on Tumblr as a result.

According to My Adventures with Superman executive producer Jake Wyatt on The Showrunner Whisperer podcast, Seasons 3 and 4 for the show has been outlined and creatively approved, but he can’t speak on whether they have been greenlit for production by DC and Warner Bros Animation. Of course, if you do wish to see future seasons of this show realized, be sure to tune in every Saturday (or set your DVRs) and catch up on the show by streaming the show on Max,, and other digital outlets.

May 31 saw a major milestone for Toonami as the block would be expanding to Friday afternoons with Toonami Rewind from 5-7 p.m. EDT. Sailor Moon returned to Toonami for the first time in 23 years to headline the inaugural Friday afternoon lineup, with the VIZ Media re-dub produced in 2014 starring Stephanie Sheh as Usagi. It was joined with an hour of DBZ Kai and OG Naruto. The trends for the premiere of Toonami Rewind, alongside the night of June 1-2, will be showcased on next week’s rundown; which I will have out tomorrow or Saturday. Until next time, 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.
