    Turner to launch Toonami Channel.... in Asia. (Crossing over with U.S. Toonami?)

    I'm... not even sure what to make of this, really...

    EDIT: Eh, may as well include the post here, for those who don't want to click the link:

    Turner Broadcasting System Asia announced on Tuesday that it will launch a multi-language Toonami channel in early 2013 across Southeast Asia.

    Toonami, which is based on the same programming block on Cartoon Network, will be a 24-hour channel that Turner Broadcasting System Asia describes as "the ultimate home of the superhero." The channel will feature anime and animated action-adventure series. The official announcement noted that the channel's line-up will include Dragon Ball Z, along with other animated series such as Young Justice, and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

    Sunny Saha, the Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Entertainment Networks at Turner International Asia Pacific Limited, said, "our aim is to make Toonami a socially-charged, multiplatform experience for fans, by fans. We'll invite input from viewers on everything from programming to showcasing fan art submissions on-air and online."

    Turner Broadcasting System Asia will also launch the Cartoonito channel that will feature animation catered to younger viewers aged 3-7.

    Adult Swim, the cable and satellite network that is paired with Cartoon Network, relaunched its Toonami programming block in the United States in May. Cartoon Network had previously ended Toonami in 2008 after an 11-year run.

    Two words. Holy Crap!

    Awesome news. Apparently Turner hasn't forgotten the Toonami branding overseas as well. Hopefully it will be better than the UK version turned out to be!

    I really hope Turner launches a Toonami Channel. It deserves one.

    I'm guessing this is for Australia too? Hopefully this means that madman has a part in this and that the English dub of One Piece can at least air on TV there, since it can't air here in the US.

    The only way I think the US would ever get a Toonami channel of our own would be if they rebranded Boomerang as Toonami to compete with Nicktoons and Disney XD. However, I get the impression that Turner would rather not do anything with Boomerang. This Asian channel could be a test, but then again we never got our own Toonami channel after the UK had their own for a few years.

    Yeah, I can't see them doing anything with Boomerang but keeping it the home of older Cartoon Network & Hanna-Barbera shows. They do run older episodes of Pokemon (including the more recent Battle Frontier series), but I think that's the only anime that runs there.

    Things to point out: no mention of whether this will be Toonami with TOM or a channel simply called Toonami, nor does there appear to be any mention of whether this will be a part of a commonly boght channel package.

    A Toonami Channel for Asia and possibly Australia. Very cool. Hopefully it works out better than Toonami UK did.

    As for us getting more Toonami goodness? Not dang likely until someone else runs Turner's youth and young adults entertainment division. The current heads have no love for action animation.
