    I just don't know. All I know is that the Thai version turned into TNT.

    Here's a thing i still don't understand.

    In 2013, Reti Televisive Italiane ceded their library of cartoons and anime to Boing, a company co-owned by Turner.

    Reti Televisive Italiane used to own many famous cartoons and anime, such as Doraemon, Dr. Slump (both now airing on Boing), Hamtaro, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, and the list goes on, and gave them to Boing.

    Why hasn't Turner thought of launching Toonami in Italy? nostalgia in Italy is huge, look at the comments for Hamtaro's theme song for example, half of them are written by people who miss this anime, while Hamtaro still airs in Italy, they air it when most people would be asleep.

    I don't think rights are an issue, Most have been renewed and Doraemon has also aired on Boomerang, and Toonami being action-oriented isn't a problem, because as the Indian feed has showed, every Toonami is different.

    Anime are still pretty popular in Italy, Dragon Ball Super had great ratings, so i don't understand why Turner wouldn't want to launch Toonami in Italy.

    Portugal seems to be impossible to sustain a Toonami channel. Action content on kids channels is at an all-time low.

    This might be a sign of abandonment. Maybe not.

    I don’t think Toonami IN is gonna last much longer, there hasn’t been a single FB post for a month.

    Maybe the channel will convert itself into a general entertainment channel. Toonami Thailand became the local TNT and added some reality shows and fiction.

    Toonami Thailand already had Dude, What Would Happen and Destroy Build Destroy before the rebrand.

    Toonami France is also subject to Turner's weird censors.

    It used to be available in India and Sri Lanka before the localized feed was launched.

    If Toonami India shuts down either Bengal switches to Asia, or removes it.

    More French censorship:

    Message at the end:
    "Here are some examples of French and Western cartoons aired and repeated for over fifteen years on France 3, Canal J, Gulli or Boomerang.
    Here, a two-second sequence of a Japanese anime.
    "But... but that's not the same thing..."
    -The honorless intelectuality of the censors of the French Audiovisual Landscape"

    Toonami France continuity:

    Basically without Dragonball Super and Justice League Action, this channel would just be a bunch of 5+-year old reruns.
