There was a time when I was a huge fan of Toonami, and I was quite sad to see it go. When it returned, I was excited, but I quickly saw a new death on the horizon. Without new content, there was little point to watch Toonami. Things aren’t like they used to be. We have access to a swath of anime series through Crunchyroll and Funimation. Not only that, but we have access to simulcasts! How could Toonami compete?
Samura Jack Returns
That’s why I am so excited to see the return of Samurai Jack. Not only is it new content, but it’s also a show that I happen to miss. Unfortunately, as of now, little is known about the new season, except that it is set to air in 2016, as part of Adult Swim’s Toonami block.
If you’re not familiar with the series, the show’s premise takes place in a Dystopian reality where a demon named Aku has enslaved the world. The only one who can stop his reign is a Samurai from the past. Or as Aku would put it…
Long ago in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil! But a foolish Samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law! Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is Aku!
The show ran for four seasons, had 52 episodes, and ran from 2001 until 2004. The story was never resolved when the show was cancelled.
Just the Beginning?
Hopefully this is just the beginning of new, and even exclusive content for Toonami. If nothing else, this one show could result in a fair boost to the ratings, and let’s face it, Toonami needs a ratings boost. How much of a boost depends on a few things, including when the show will be on and the quality of the new season itself.
Forgotten colors is a graphic novel anthology, illustrated by David G. Forés, along with various collaborating artists, and written by Silvia G. Guirado. According to the preface, Silvia was asked to write the stories, based off of images on t-shirts that the company had designed. While taking a single image and turning it into a story provides a great deal of liberty, it also must have been quite a challenge. Luckily, she succeeded.« Continue »

Golem Arcana is a digitally enhanced miniature wargaming platform. It has the full look and feel of a miniature wargame, but all of the mechanics can be performed on a digital system. Yes; in theory you could perform them manually, but why bother? The enhanced system makes it so much easier and it allows an entry point for people who are entirely new to the genre. If you would like to read the original crowd funding review, you can do so here.« Continue »
