Why is every page referencing the new season of Samurai Jack, including this one, saying the show will premiere in 2017? Jason DeMarco said that there's currently no set premiere date, and the guy who announced the March 2017 premiere date has since deleted the post he made it on. I'm not saying that the show won't premiere in 2017, but until we get an official announcement about the premiere date, let's not rule out late 2016.

After a lot of example misuse in the subpages, it has been decided by ATT that there will be a purge of all "this show left the block and I'm sad"/meta examples, and we will only catalog tropes pertaining to the Toonami continuity (the intruder, etc.) and anything that happens between the shows with TOM and Sara. Basically, only tropes pertaining to the block itself. It's also been suggested, that we change the namespace to Western Animation to make it clear that only the animated Toonami segments are tropeable. I think that's a good idea. What does everyone else think?

So...After Saturday can we move Hellsing IX and Summer Wars to the recap page?
06:58:05 PM Jun 19th 2014
I've created a recap page for the history of the programming lineup. There is just no reason to have to scroll through all that or even collapse the folders just to get to the tropes.

Should we add a Characters section for the TOM versions, SARA, the Clydes, and whot not?
10:01:34 AM Mar 12th 2013
Should we really be adding films shown by Toonami to the list? I mean, if we're gonna do that, that list is gonna get way too long way too fast, and it's largely irrelevant to the block on the whole given that they're one-shot deals anyway.
10:37:48 AM Mar 12th 2013
Unless Toonami plans on airing a movie for every week for the rest of the year, I doubt the list would grow that fast.
12:25:47 PM Mar 12th 2013
Yes, but just consider how many movies were aired for the first eleven years. If we're counting 1.1 we should be counting all of them, shouldn't we?
01:43:58 PM Mar 12th 2013
Some of them HAD to be reruns. Like Pokémon: The First Movie

After someone requested that TOM 5.0 be included into the lineup, Wackd went ahead and did just that. The first one wasn't bad. The second "More compact" version suffered hideous artifacting and just looked bad. No offense, Wackd. I don't think you did anything wrong, but the first attempt was in my opinion, better. I reverted it back for two reasons: 1: So we can have a proper Image Picking thread to decide which should be used in the future. 2. Lets wait until TOM 5.0 is officially part of the storyline before we include him.

Divided the shows up by era as best I could with aid from Wikipedia's bizarrely cohesive list of schedule changes. If I left something off, please re-add it in the right section, rather than just reverting the list. The original copy will be in the history if you need to find an attached note.

It may be deleted since this isn't an encyclopedia, but I'm impressed by the work you put into this. It sure as hell won't be me complaining about that.
12:29:53 PM Jan 13th 2013
The page has always indexed the shows that have been on it, only now it is just slightly differently organized. I have no problems with it.

ReBoot... This show was so old by the time I started watching it. I believe it was on its last legs, I can't remember (I was born in 1993)... I was so young. No one could remember it when I explained it to them. I couldn't remember the characters, the plot, the graphic quality, almost nothing. Ever try to think of something and can't? How it kills you and you can do nothing about it? I had this feeling every time I thought of this show. That was probably ten years or longer. So long I started to think the whole thing was just dreams I had that bits I remembered were just part of multiple dreams I had with the same characters. Maybe I did dream about the show, I don't know... But TV tropes helped me to rediscover by simply looking through the Toonami list. I just clicked on shows whose names I couldn't remember. It felt so good to find ReBoot... TV Trope may ruin your life but sometimes, it just brings so much cheer into my life. It would be a mistake to take the list off any ways. T,T [D

TOM!! One of the only people would can act more "hardcore" by suddenly developing a taste for swear words and still making himself sound cool. You would think he would sound like a poser, but nope. Precision B Strike ftw.
09:23:45 PM Dec 14th 2012
Hilariously, Hamtaro was one of my favorite block shows. It was just so cute! And I'm a straight dude! Haha!

I'm pretty sure that Retcon does not apply to Toonami, and needs to be removed. It was never stated in the first place that all the TO Ms were the same person. It was only assumed that they were because we never saw any other one existing at the same time. Furthermore, someone else already added a contradictory statement equivalent to Word of God, so the entry needs to be fixed up to reflect that instead. I'm not sure what trope that would fit under though.

I agree. Besides, I don't even think that it's a correct use of the trope itself. GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS, PEOPLE! JUST BECAUSE A SERIES THAT HAS BEEN RUNNING NON-STOP FOR THE LAST 3 OR 4 YEARS IS REMOVED FROM THE LINEUP DOES NOT MEAN IT WILL NEVER RETURN. IT HAS BEEN TAKEN OFF THE SCHEDULE NUMEROUS TIMES IN THE PAST, YET YOU NEVER HEARD ANYONE CRYING THAT THE SKY WAS FALLING BACK THEN.

^ CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL. YOU'RE JUST EXUDING COOLNESS, MAN. YOU'RE SO COOL, I'M NAMING MY BABIES AFTER YOU. Anyhoo, I don't think it's been adding more than a few times, but yeah. I'll add an edit note in a bit if no objections show up here.

^ Please, take this to heart: I rarely ever have any reason to "YELL" on the internet. The whole caps lock thing, I was very aware of when I typed that message. It's just become so annoying that everyone thinks the world is going to end and another part of their precious childhood has forever been brought to an end just because CB had been taken off the schedule. I mean, this is a serious Face Palm inducing level of over-reacting.
07:57:30 PM Sep 22nd 2012
And of course the reason cited was "the budget", when in fact it would've been cheaper to keep Bebop around than to pick up Eureka Seven to replace it.
08:08:09 PM Sep 22nd 2012
Well, I added an edit note saying not to readd that as an Anyone Can Die example. If anyone has any objections, feel free to post them here.
08:14:47 PM Sep 22nd 2012
I think you should elaborate a little. Say that the trope should only be applied if it directly relates to Toonami's own storyline and characters. Since this trope was being applied to one of the series that it used to show, it would be more appropriate to put it on Cowboy Bebop's page instead. .... Don't do that, please. The trope still wouldn't apply.
08:28:47 PM Sep 22nd 2012
It seems to be checked out by someone now. I'll come back later and elaborate if I remember; feel free to edit it yourself if you want, too.
06:59:49 PM Sep 26th 2012
Bebop will be back on the schedule on October 6. Definitely doesn't count for "Anyone Can Die".
07:50:21 PM Sep 26th 2012
^ It never did in the first place. It would be misuse since it doesn't apply to Toonami's own story. I've never heard of Anyone Can Die being applied to TV program scheduling...
