Toonami has released their December anime movie schedule, and to no surprise, it’s a great list! Here’s their announcement:
Hey #toonami faithful! WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re back with some more good news. This December, Toonami will have a whole MONTH of movies to ring in the holidays! WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll release the full air schedule soon, but for now, here are the GREAT movies weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be airing:
12/7- AKIRA- Yup. The most influential anime film of all time is coming to Toonami and kicking off a month of movies. That promo will be something to see, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re tellinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ ya. By the way, the 25th anniversary remastered Blu-Ray was just released by our friends at Funimation, and man. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gorgeous.
12/14- SUMMER WARS- directed by Mamoru Hosoda, this modern classic is something weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had our eye on for a while. We think youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll love it!
12/21- FULL METAL ALCHEMIST- THE CONQUEROR OF SHAMBALLA- FMA fans know how great this gem is. And so do we. Produced by Bones, the same studio who will be bringing you SPACE DANDY in January!
12/28- TRIGUN: BADLAND RUMBLE- Trigun is back where he belongs on Adult Swim, in a special one off adventure.
And thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not all! WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll also be doing a TOONAMI T-SHIRT GIVEAWAY for the whole month of December, AND you might see some interesting things happening with TOM and the Absolution!
Okay thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s allÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ for THIS week! Like we said, more details to come, and we hope youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re as excited about this holiday season as we are!
Love, the Toonami crew.
If you’ve never heard of or seen any of these films, I recommend that you check them out! Akira is a classic in anime, and any fan of the cyberpunk/futuristic genre would go crazy over it. Summer Wars is another favorite, simply because any gamer can relate to the story. A mix of hacking, artificial intelligence and virtual reality gaming makes it quite the thrill to watch. While I wasn’t too enticed with the Conqueror of Shamballa, it was still awesome to see, as I’m a hugeÃ‚Â Full Metal Alchemist fan. Now, Badlands Rumble was quite the throwback. If you loved the anime, there’s no reason why you should skip out on the movie released 10+ years after the show’s initial debut!
And how about Space Dandy? Toonami will also have it premiere in January when it releases, even before Japan! What is Space Dandy, you ask? Well, watch the trailer below and be amazed!
You’re one hell of a guy, Dandy.
