    Unicorn was on an earlier timeslot. I could have sworn it had better retention from the previous show than Gundam.

    I could have sworn that it was doing worse than Hunter x Hunter, but I must have been mistaken. Even so, I'm still pretty happy with this outcome given how much I prefer Hunter x Hunter over Unicorn.

    With Toonami using the Pipes era logo for their 20th Anniversary, I've tweaked the main talkback image.

    Gundam Unicorn "outperformed" Hunter x Hunter because it's on before it. It drops more off from the preceeding show than Hunter x Hunter drops from it. That matters a lot. They're always close.

    When did this air? On TV or is it a web exclusive?

    @wonderfly Posted on Toonami's Facebook. Might air tonight? I'm curious to see the old look.

    I thought that it was a fan-made video given some of the different quality of the footage from what I saw. It's nearly twenty minutes long, so I don't know if it would air on TV.

    On top of that, it's full of old promos with clips of shows they no longer have the rights to, so.

    That clip is from the latest Pre-Flight.

    ...which doesn't seem to be working right now, for some reason.

    Huh, that's interesting. It's at a different link this time.
    Thanks!

    In case you turned it off before Naruto Shippuden:



    I'm dying to know with whom they collaborated on this ani-jam.

    I was thinking. We should do a Toonami Fantasy Schedule. If not, that's ok.

    I somehow thought it was going to be more than the logo, I thought we were going to get the retro TOM and Absolution ship, along with the rotating TV screens (showing what's airing now and what's coming up next). Like this:



    Imagine the retro TOM introducing Gundam Unicorn or Dragon Ball Super...that would've been awesome.

    I liked the old school bumpers they used. They looked pretty cool and they have a bit of a nostalgic charm to them.
