“Listen, I’ve worked every job from assassin to bodyguard. I’m the deadly ninja Speed-o’-Sound Sonic. But for the time being, my work will be on hold. And now that I’ve found such a formidable opponent, I’m dedicating myself to training until we settle this. […] Saitama, next time we meet, it’ll be your demise. I, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic the ultimate ninja, will not rest until I have brought you down.”
– Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, One Punch Man (Ep. 04)
“Go train hard!”
The Toonami Trending Rundown for September 3-4, 2016. With this being the Labor Day Weekend, Toonami took a night off from regular festivities, opting to showcase episodes 1-7 of One Punch Man. With some fans taking the night off livetweeting due to the holiday festivities in addition to the buzz of the College Football season underway, a slow night of social media buzz is to be expected, though on Twitter, #OnePunchMan did trend briefly, in addition to Toonami and character trends of Genos and Saitama. Toonami would also trend on Tumblr.
This week’s feature was a game review of Hyper Light Drifter, a multiplatform 2D action role-playing game developed by Heart Machine. It received a score of 8 out of 10.
Tune in next week as Naruto showcases the finale of the Itachi Pursuit Mission arc, among other great moments. Until next week, have a Happy Labor Day and stay gold.
