“Eren, you said there was nothing to say, but you were wrong. I got a question, and you will answer it. What do you really mean when you say you’re free?”

–          Armin Arlert, Attack on Titan: The Final Season: The Final Chapters (Part 1)

The Toonami Trending Rundown is a double-feature for the nights of September 2-3 and 9-10, 2023. This past week saw the premiere of FLCL’s fourth season, titled FLCL: Grunge, followed by Part 1 of a two-part series finale for Attack on Titan.

In regards to trending, #Toonami trended in the United States on Twitter alongside FLCL Grunge and Attack on Titan. #Toonami also trended on Tumblr alongside Attack on Titan. In addition, during the previous week, Toonami showcased a marathon of FLCL: Alternative to hype fans up for Grunge, and as a result, #FLCLAlternative trended in the U.S.

Following the broadcast of Episode 1, the official FLCL Twitter account posted a video from director Takekiko on what to expect in the next episode.

FLCL USA Official on Twitter: “Hope you enjoyed Episode 1 of FLCL: Grunge. Here’s from Director Takekiyo on what to expect in the next episode. / Twitter”

On Tuesday, Studio MAPPA and Pony Canyon announced that Part 2 of The Final Chapters will premiere in Japan on November 4. No word yet on when the series finale will reach Toonami airwaves, but we’ll keep you posted.

Tune in tonight for the premiere of episode 2 of FLCL Grunge at midnight, followed by an hour of One Piece from 12:30-1:30 a.m, a doubleheader of Naruto Shippuden from 1:30-2:30 a.m, and My Hero Academia concluding the night at 2:30 a.m. Until next time, stay gold as always.

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.
