“Stop doubting yourself. I don’t know where you got in your head that you’re weak. But you’re wrong. You saved my life and our friends lives so many times, and you’re going to do it again right now!”
– Goku, Dragon Ball Z Kai (Ep. 96)
The Toonami Trending Rundown for December 3-4, 2016. It was a good night for social media buzz with Gohan vanquishing Cell among other moments as every show had successfully trended in the US during their respective East Coast airings, while Toonami also trended on both Twitter and Tumblr. No character or in-show content trends to report this week, however.
This week’s feature was a review of the Attack on Titan video game. It received a score of 7.5 out of 10.
Tune in next week for the season 1 finale of Iron Blooded Orphans, along with the penultimate episode of the DBZ Cell saga and the penultimate episode of JoJo’s Phantom Blood arc, among other great moments. These next two weeks will also be the final two weeks of the regular schedule for 2016 as it has been announced that Christmas Eve will feature a JoJo’s marathon, while New Years Eve will feature a DBZ Kai marathon to end off the year.
We’ll see you again next week, but we do wish to take a moment to send our thoughts to those affected by the loss of voice actor Cole Brown, whom passed away back on November 18 at the age of 60. Cole lent his voice to various Funimation productions for over 10 years, including voicing One Piece’s Blackbeard and Saul, and Full Metal Alchemist’s Henshel. On behalf of everyone, thanks for the memories, Cole and may your soul rest in peace.
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.
