    Production I.G.'s Kickstarted project Kick-Heart airs tonight at 2:30, following Evangelion 2.22, with a special encore at 3:45. The original Kickstarter page (which wrapped funding last October) can be found HERE.

    Let's recap:
    * It's the television premier.
    * It's fifteen minutes long.
    * According to the Toonami Tumblr, "No one else would have the balls to air it."
    * Jason said people would be surprised, some positively, some not so positively. And he said it would stop people from saying that Toonami isn't "adventurous."

    I still think it's Rude Removal.

    It's probably gonna be something completely random like an episode of Krypto the Superdog or something.

    I feel that this surprise will be something TV-MA rated...

    I hope you're wrong, but on Tumblr someone asked if they could trust their TV Guide that said (surprise) was rated TV-14 and they said no...

    I'm pretty sure Krypto has aired all of its episodes.

    A Panty & Stocking episode?
    Or a subtitled OVA?

    A lot of people are thinking it may be Kick-Heart, that Production I.G. short anime that got funded through Kickstarter.

    So I guess Demarco does sometimes program stuff without watching it. Not that I'm complaining. This short's awesome and it's amazing that Masaaki Yuasa is finally getting some exposure in the US, on Toonami no less!

    Considering your opinion on everything, it would seem that watching Toonami and posting about it constantly would be a waste of your time.

    This is a short that wouldn't have gotten another opportunity anytime or anyplace else and I don't see the harm in airing this for one night only after Eva 2.22 for exposure sake. If people like it, then they like it. If they don't, then they don't. At least now it's getting the attention it needed to get. This announcement alone is getting a lot more people to talk about this thing than it did any month prior.

    Thank you.

    So, Kick-Heart is a Romeo-&-Juliet anime where the main characters are a pro wrestler & a nun that fall in love. I'm interested in this.

    It looks pretty promising and has good staffing. I'm not going to cry over 12 minutes of my life lost if I don't love it.

    Kick-Heart or Dive Kick? Discuss.

    Why do I get the feeling this belongs on regular Adult Swim and not Toonami?
