    What exactly is Sentai and Toonami's relationship? Sentai has dropped hints now suggesting fans ask Toonami for more Sentai shows. Why isn't DeMarco actively pursuing more Sentai stuff after how successful Akame ga Kill! and Parasyte were?

    More info on Countdown.

    Much like Intruder III, it will be 4 episodes long and 3-4 minutes each. However, the final episode will be six minutes long.

    EDIT: Also, Sailor Moon Crystal is unattainable at the moment.

    Well it's only 17 years that have passed and the entire television landscape has changed....

    I wonder why they're sticking with the 4 episode count, like they did last year. Was there a reason to not do 7 episodes again? This will keep the event confined to November, it won't carry us through to the end of the year like Intruder II did. Well, I know the last couple Saturdays of the year are tied up with marathons, but I wouldn't have minded for "Countdown" to carry over into December...

    I just like the idea of starting the new year with a new setting/new bumpers...but I guess there's no guarantee that everything's about to change (again)...

    I would have assumed that the price for Sentai shows were too expensive, but if Sentai is actually suggesting for fans to ask the Toonami crew to pick up their shows, maybe they just aren't interested in anything they have in their library.

    That's not surprising. Since the series is being streamed on sites like Hulu and Crunchyroll, including the dub version, that would probably make it impossible for them to get it right now. While I do like Crystal, I don't know if any version of Sailor Moon would fit on the block. It would provide a more light hearted show and a heavy female cast is a nice bonus. Plus, it would be nostalgic and new content at the same time, so that would be kind of ideal for the block in that sense. I just don't know if it would really fit with all of the other shows on the lineup. It would still be a better choice than going for the original series, if only because it wouldn't take a time slot for another few years.

    I didn't expect we'd get more Space Dandy episodes after learning that it underperformed in Japan. At best, we could have gotten a movie, but that seems out of the question now too.

    Well that doesn't sound very "Halloween-ish"...

    Did they do a Halloween marathon last year?

    I'm pretty sure that they did. I don't remember what the show was, but it was shortly after Jojo's Bizzare Adventure started on the block. I remember people commenting that it would have been a better choice for a Halloween marathon due to the vampires, but it couldn't be an option because it had just started.

    I like Samurai Jack's fifth season a lot more than Jojo, but the latter would be more fitting for a Halloween marathon. I'm more upset that there will be a marathon so soon after IBO started its new season, but I didn't factor in the Halloween marathon before.

    I guess I'm just surprised they didn't do a "Tokyo Ghoul" marathon. Now THAT would be appropriate for Halloween.

    Be nice if they could get the rights to a retro horror anime movie (like Vampire Hunter D or "Blood: The Last Vampire" - Adult Swim did air the "Blood +" series, many years ago...).

    I could see the Vampire Hunter D film from 2001 fitting in with the other anime on the block.

    Oh yeah. I'm surprised that I couldn't remember that given that I do like the series.

    As much as I dislike Tokyo Ghoul, it would be more fitting for a Halloween marathon and the show just finished its run too. I don't know how much action Root A had considering I dropped the show like a bad habit, but Samurai Jack is a better choice out of the two in terms of quality. It would be nice to see them airing some movies again. It probably won't happen since marathons are cheaper and probably easier for them to handle, but I do miss watching movies on Toonami.

    Looks like Toonami just wants the highest amount of ratings as possible if they're bringing back S5 of Jack yet again...
