Don’t know why, but your post about next week’s schedule made me laugh harder than it should have.


Wait… it’s April Fools… Hmm…

Does anyone know if the Adult Swim’s April Fool’s prank occurs at midnight, or during the block that starts on the day of?


Hard to say. Last year Toonami preempted the 11:00pm hour as seen here.


Yeah. The legendary Rick and Morty fiasco. PO’ed anime fans across America, and eventually led to one of the worst days I’ve ever experienced at my job :tired_face:

That sounds fairly ominous…


Also, considering they didn’t bother to fix AT&T’s guide from last week… Yes, Hunter X Hunter is still an hour-long program.

Toonami 2012 - Adult Swim April Fools Intro


Schedule updated.

Welcome to Saturday Night Import where reading is fundamental and goes all night.


Man I am glad I recorded the entire block. Had to go in at midnight, but wanted to make sure if anything happened I’d catch it. :sweat_smile:

All subbed huh? Can’t wait to see this.


I also taped the whole block, plus an extra half hour and still didn’t get it all. :frowning_face:


Knowing AS, I taped it from Black Clover to King Of the Kill just to be safe.

They might put the subbed version On Demand for anyone who missed it :crossed_fingers:

At least you got the important parts Slow. Midnight was the new FLCL :tada:


I had the foresight to record the whole thing as well. Don’t know if I got everything, I just did a quick spot check to see what the changes were with the episodes I normally record to see if I could figure what was going on at least. I wonder if I got everything though. I might have missed some of GitS.


Toonami - April Fools 2018 Bumpers


Turns out I didn’t tape as much as I thought, only got to the first half of Naruto. sigh
