"#BringBackToonami We've heard you. Thank you for your passion and interest - stay tuned."
I think it's safe to say at this point that Toonami will be back at some point in some form.
Mother of God, this is actually happening...
As for how 4Chan is feeling about it: /co/, /v/, and /m/ are shitting bricks; /a/ is pissed that they'll have people trying to talk about things other than Moe on their board.

You are not alone, and you are not strange. You are you, and everyone has damage. Be the better person.
/co/, /v/, and /m/ are omega bros. /a/ is a nostalgia hating, moe worshipping band of neckbeards who only have /jp/ for support.
Anyway, now that we know Toonami is back for reals, let us post suggestions of what adult swim should license for the block. Let's try to not rely on nostalgia too much.
Cromatie High or Daily Lives of High School Boys
The Amazing Screw-On Head
A western animated version of a Toonami classic made modern (for example, Outlaw Star from the people who made EMH)
Abridged shorts of Toonami classics (think Team Fourstar) during breaks
I don't keep up with new anime much nowadays so I don't have much for suggestions (although Soul Eater is a good choice), but I could very well see Funimation trying to get some of its properties onto the block seeing as their channel was taken off the air not too long ago.
As for nostalgia, most of us here (well, those of us on the Manga/Anime section) are in agreement that a 70/30 or 60/40 split between new and old/current programming would probably be for the best, so I doubt that'll be a problem.
