“Leorio, stop. You’re wasting time fighting each other. It’s exactly what they want. […] We need to win 3 rounds. It’s the only way we’ll be able to advance. “
– Kurapika, Hunter x Hunter (Ep. 08)
The Toonami Trending Rundown for June 11-12, 2016. Pretty decent night for trending as #DBZKai, #GundamIBO, and #HunterXHunter trended in the US during their respective East Coast airings while #HunterXHunter also trended during the show’s West Coast airing. Toonami also trended. One Piece’s buzz did produce a character trend in Brook as he sets free, so to speak, the monkey spider that was after Franky and Robin.
Hunter x Hunter’s buzz did well enough to become Nielsen Social’s 5th most trended show on June 11th, the first time a show has reached there twice and in successive weeks. This definitely is a good sign for not just the social media buzz of Hunter x Hunter, but all Toonami shows in general, and here’s hoping this continues.
Until next week, have a good E3 week, congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins on winning the Stanley Cup, and of course our deepest condolences go out to those who have been affected by the recent Orlando shootings. The Toonami and anime communities mourn with you, and it’s also a good reminder for all that we must all stay united and be helpful to assist one another, especially in these tough times for the US and the entire world.
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.
