Happy Thanksgiving! In a unexpected news, it was announced on Tumblr that Naruto (Uncut) will premiere on Toonami on December 1, airing in between Bleach (Which will be going into reruns for the next 8 weeks) and Tenchi Muyo! GXP. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will be reduced to one episode per week.
Originally airing on Toonami in 2005 in an edited form, Naruto was the only series that was still airing on Cartoon Network after Toonami’s cancellation. It was cut short before it could finish its run with only 11 episodes to go, most likely due to a drop in ratings caused by the fillers.
No, Naruto did not kill Toonami!!!
I was kinda unsure about long-runners being on Toonami, but I’m okay with Naruto. I dropped it after Episode 135, which is the end of the Sasuke Retrieval arc.
