    I really hope that they don't destroy the ship this TIE, I really like it.

    The possibilities following the end of "Countdown":

    1. We get a new TOM
    2. We get a new SARA
    3. We get a new ship
    4. We get a new everything?
    5. Nothing changes (like some of the later T.I.E.'s from the early days of Toonami. Not every event needs to be akin to the original "Intruder").

    What do you guys think?

    You left out the possibility that Toonami could be ending and this is a big, final blowout.

    Not saying that is the case, but if they were given the luxury of going out with a bang, I'm sure they would take it.

    So here is how I figure Attack On Titan season 3 will air: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure season 2 will end(first half of Part 3), Attack on Titan S3 will air.

    New TIE 2019. Toonami is persevering despite the rapid decline in ratings. Adult Swim is really dedicated to making Toonami stay as the last home for non-toyetic anime on American TV.

    Even "toyetic" anime is obsolete on American TV now - what's left besides "Pokemon" on Disney XD?

    EDIT: Wait, where did you hear there's going to be another TIE in 2019? Do you mean 2018?

    I'm guessing if the channel wasn't included in family packages on some cable systems, they could probably air the ATHF movie without bleeps. Comedy Central, El Rey Network, IFC (and TCM!) would be able to air it uncut late at night.

    Disney XD also has Beyblade Burst and I think they still have Yokai Watch. Nicktoons still airs Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V, although I don't know if that counts given how often they go on break with it and I seriously doubt that they'll play anything after they finish season one, assuming that they'll even make it that far after airing the series for nearly two years.

    Still, toyetic anime titles definitely aren't not as big as they were back in the day. Most of the popular/most successful anime from the past few years wouldn't really fit for a kids audience without a lot of editing. Plus, most anime licensors aim their dubs at the teenage/young adult crowd, so there aren't a lot of anime specifically for kids coming out as much as it did during the late 90's and early 2000's.

    I like how he reassures the fans that they decided to take that time to work on the next TIE instead of being forced on them by the network or budget issues.

    But NOT as part of Toonami. I think that's where the confusion kicked in (for me at least).

    Still, it's been a while since Adult Swim aired ATHF the movie, right?

    Definitely. I'd be thrilled if that came on, the last time anything Yamato was on Toonami was Star Blazers on the Reactor website...and this one is a full on remake.

    I'm hoping this does better than the last follow-up to a 70s anime (cough Lupin cough). This one would probably do better due to being more action-packed. With the Yamato remake's lack of hype, I wonder how it will do, but under the radar hits (like Deadman Wonderland) could do wonders for Toonami. Even though Lupin is in the deathslot, it has been a fun change of pace from dark and edgy, and I am glad it was given a chance.

    The main reason the remake didn't get much hype here before was because of how badly Voyager messed up the release. They pitched a pilot dub then went straight to an Aniplex style import model instead.

    Judging by the events of part 1, new TOM is my best guess. He hasn't gotten a remodel in a while and he looked pretty banged up there.

    I get that they want to push Lupin III to the end of the year, but how many more times are they going to marathon DBZ Kai? They have quite a few other shows that haven't gotten the marathon treatment yet. Why not give those a chance?

    Naruto: Shippuden has been on the block for nearly four years and hasn't had a single marathon in all that time. DB Super has been the highest-rated show alongside Samurai Jack this year. What about one of the smaller shows like Outlaw Star or, heck, even Lupin itself? Nope, it has to be freakin' DBZ for what seems like the 10th time already.

    And there is probably still 2 more marathons this year, for Christmas and New years...

    It's too bad they couldn't bring back movies. I wouldn't even mind seeing American-animated stuff like Batman: The Killing Joke or BB:Return Of the Joker (uncut).
