    Happy birthday, Toonami! The block celebrates its 20th anniversary with a new microseries from Production I.G.--Mamoru Oshii's Sand Whale and Me!

    Synopsis: In the distant future, a female paratrooper is stranded in a vast desert. With limited supply of food and water, her only hope is to catch a sand whale from a pack. If she can’t, her life may just hang in the balance.

    This microseries has two promos: Production I.G.'s promo and Toonami's promo.

    Enjoy the microseries from March 18 to April 15 at midnight! Only Toonami.

    Weird is putting it lightly. But it's Japanese so that just means it's old hat.

    I wish they did a little something more for the anniversary (actaully yesterday). But this should be interesting.

    Live action video game animation = kinda creepy.

    "Sand Whale and Me" sounds like a kid's book.

    Thirty bullets left in her Kentucky Fried Chicken gun.

    The actress reminds me a little of Iria from that live-action Zeiram movie (1991).

    Ehhh, it's not as exciting if it's only in the first round.

    Toonami celebrated its tenth anniversary with a nifty collage of all the shows it had run up to that point. I thought for the twentieth we'd get something more elaborate -- an anniversary special, the return of their original lineup for one night, a surprise new TOM short, anything.

    I never predicted THIS would be the cake they trotted out. Did you?

    Will Sand whale and me be posted online on youtube since I did not record it. I just found out today about it. I cannot view it on toonami site since the on demand not working on their site. I asked a microsoft chat person to check they think the site might be blocking me from just the on demand of those shows also the site may be under updates or something. Does anyone have a youtube link of any other full video link of that special.

    I often find Oshii's live-action work very dry compared to his animated films. The only exception was Avalon, which was closest in tone to something like Ghost in the Shell. I haven't seen Assault Girls yet.
