    Once again Shippuden manages to look the best. Though Kai is probably good too given what came before it.

    Top 25 ratings are in.

    Samurai Jack: 1,335,000
    Kai: 1,012,000
    JoJo: 783,000
    Tokyo Ghoul: 820,000
    Gundam Unicorn: 576,000

    Wow. JoJo went down the toilet, Tokyo Ghoul beat JoJo, and Gundam did terrible. Attack on Titan should be a huge hit and could possibly push Tokyo Ghoul over the million mark. I'm wondering if we'll really see Iron Blooded Orphans season 2 or not. At the very least, IBO got a lot of heat on Toonami forums, but it had far more defenders than Unicorn ever did.

    This continues my thought that UC Gundam is just a ratings killer and anything tied to it has zero business on TV. It's too involved a storyline to ever get new viewers and it would be for the best to completely stay away from it period. IBO did moderately better, but it just seems that as a whole the Toonami viewer base is not interested in giant robot shows.

    Gurren Lagann was in high demand before it aired. It did, okay. Being a Syfy rerun with a dub that was easily streamable for years did some damage. Of course, Gurren Lagann was way more action-packed and FUN than either Gundam show on nu-Toonami.

    I don't remember IBO getting heat here. It started off slow, but got more interesting as it progressed. All things considered, it was received pretty well here. I do hope that we get IBO season two, if only because I'm not interested in watching any other Gundam series besides that after Unicorn.

    Adult Swim's boards and 4chan are other stories entirely. This forum seems way nicer than most anime/Toonami forums.

    Programming insider's JoJo estimate is even sadder. We need Attack on Titan to save the day.

    Ah, that makes more sense. I never checked the Adult Swim's forums when it was running and I wouldn't go to 4chan if someone paid me, so I wouldn't be aware of how fans reacted to IBO on those sites.

    Jojo really did see it bad compared to the other shows, that really was a big decline after Kai and before Tokyo Ghoul.

    Top 25 ratings time.

    Samurai Jack: 1,297,000
    Kai: 924,000
    JoJo: 829,000
    JoJo: 747,000
    Gundam Unicorn: 555,000

    JoJo did all right, but not great. If it comes back, can we expect a death slot? Also, another abysmal Gundam showing.

    This weekend did see a decline, seeing the next day was Easter it makes sense.
