    They just showed the teaser.

    Rated TV-14? Seriously?! From what I heard in the reviews, it's The Walking Dead with skinless giants.

    Just saw the teaser. I figured its Toonami premiere was a given.

    I've heard interesting things about it. This saves me the trouble of watching it online.

    I don't think that 1:30AM is that bad. Plus, this show was in high demand and is pretty popular, so it's expected that they'd push everything else down in order to make room for it on the block.

    Isn't Walking Dead TV-14? Anyway, I think a TV-14 is fair. Its bloody, but not gory, and like most Shonen, it tones things down from the manga (no on-screen chomping).

    Yeah, while I love that AoT is coming to the block... I hate that OP is getting pushed down for it. Guess we can forget about it being the next Bleach for Adult Swim. :-(

    Well, Bleach and AoT should end their runs at about the same time so....who knows?

    Eh. By that time the next big show would probably be favored compared to OP. It is what it is. At least it's still on, I guess.

    We need it to be licensed first.

    If it can get licensed this summer (I'm hoping for it given they finally worked out a stream), maybe that'll be the fall's big premiere.

    Almost everything that isn't Bleach is being pushed down in favor of Attack on Titan, so it isn't just One Piece that's affected. As for becoming the next Bleach for Adult Swim, it's still possible, although Shippuden probably has a better chance for that. Regardless, I don't think that matters nearly as much as One Piece just being on the air.

    It'll need a licensor and a dub.

    Yeah, I know. That's the only thing that's keeping me from saying this is bad news outright. I just wanted One Piece to move up, not down. But it is what it is.

    Very obvious that Toonami would get Attack on Titan and air it in the 11:30 slot. Hope it does great.

    I'm not too happy with the bump either and i still find this post incredibly unnecessary.

    I noticed that Toonami brought back their old 2003 font for the promo.

    They also brought back the 1999 font for Space Dandy's promos.
