It's been almost a month since Toonami's return on may 26th and honestly, it was great just seeing Tom back on the screen again. But once the nostalgic euphoria died down there were a few things about this revival that worry me, especially considering that we're still in the trial phase at this point.
I could list off all of my points in detail but what they all come down to is that times have changed. Back when toonami was at it's peak in the 90s and early 2000s, the internet and TV were more or less on equal footing. Nowadays, the internet is king while TV has, more or less, become a redundant medium. All of toonami's current shows are available for free online on both legal and illegal sites at any time so staying up till midnight just seems like a waste of time.
I don't mean to sound overly pessimistic because I really am glad that toonami's back and I hope it will succeed. But at the same time, i'm worried about the myriad of ways this can all go south. So what do you guys think about Toonami's return?
