    The guys behind Toonami aren't telling us what's happening during the Daylight Savings hour, so here's a thread to talk about...whatever they're airing. This isn't like Inuyasha last year, where we had a good notice ahead of time. They're treating this like Kick-Heart, where we have to wait till the last minute. (It'll be airing after FLCL tonight.)

    I'll update this whenever we find out. Feel free to speculate in the meantime.

    EDIT: DeMarco is taking suggestions for next year! Send them in!

    I wonder if this will be one movie, or a couple of somethings.

    I hope they acquire an old show for one night, just like they did on 4/1/12.

    We in Europe change to Daylight Savings Time on the last Sunday of October.
    But what's the mystery show?

    They're keeping it a secret, we'll find out when Toonami starts.

    We used to as well, but then the Bush administration extended it, for whatever reason.

    According to DeMarco's Twitter, TOM will not be announcing what it is at the top of the block.

    We'll actually have to wait till after FLCL ends to see what it is for ourselves.

    TOM definitely didn't announce it, and I really applaud the Toonami crew for not allowing that to happen, but rather 'wait' until it happens. Sometimes surprises really need to wait until the certain time approaches and it's great for those who stay up/record it to see for themselves. I hope they keep this approach. (for good)

    I wont waste time here with many guesses, but I'm sure no matter what it is, it'll be great. As for a couple guesses. Either 1 or 2 episodes of an older show (or 1 episode of 2 older shows) or a 1-hour special or 2 half-hour specials. I don't think the Toonami crew would stoop low as to make it repeats of stuff we've seen on the regular schedule. Maybe if this were still ASA. It'd be a 1-time thing, so the budget probably didn't hurt them on this.


    Maybe it's 4 consecutive airings of Kick-Heart! -- Go ahead and get a mob on me for that gag. Make sure each individual has a flaming torch, I don't want it any other way :)


    Lastly, It'll be during SAO that we see for sure if it'll stay a secret until after FLCL when they show the "now - next - later" bumper around 2:15am. I'm hoping they made it TOM's face to shield what it really is.

    Is it wrong that I actually hope it's a repeat of Doomstar Requiem?

    That special was so great that I wouldn't mind at all if it aired on Toonami.

    For one night surprises like this, yet. This approach wouldn't be good for a regular brand new show, though. New shows need to be promoted in advanced.

    I'll give you that. I should have implied better. "Specials" yes, series/movies no.

    Wouldn't be too bad if it were. I don't recall it ever airing on CN (or any DB movie for that matter), so despite it's age, it'd be a 'new' broadcast, and we'd get a dose of DB for the night. Last regular 'Dragon Ball' appearance was the exact same day Toonami had it's final weekday appearance... April 16th, 2004. (the 3rd and final week of their Dragon Ball Chronicles event)

    DST isn't over yet. There's one hour left.

    The suspense is already killing me though.
