Why not Knights of Sidonia, Code Geass or Steins Gate anyone of these sound better then Gurren Lagann in my opinion.

Knights of Sidonia better than TTGL? Either troll or megatroll..

Toonami gets all the best shows! Lagann is amazing, and I'm so glad new viewers can see it!

While I'm excited to watch it, 2AM is a kinda eh time slot. Not that it's TERRIBLE, but I'd rather watch AoT/SD/TTGL first, then Bleach/Naruto/OP. But you know, gotta have the "Big 3." :/

Will watch for sure! The last time I saw the show was when Bandai had all the dubbed episodes up on YouTube.

they should probably think of airing something else like for real how many time has this been? i like the show and all but come on

The other day I tried to show some relatives the movie and they called it boring. Gurren lagann is a lot of things, but boring isn't one of them. Anyway, totally gonna watch this.

Damn, wish they would show something better than that crap.

Woohoo! More people get to witness the epicness of TTGL! Adult Swim/Toonami is really stepping up their game with SnK, Black Lagoon, and now TTGL.

What?
Is it going to start from episode 1 or not?

Yes, its going to start from episode 1.

They can probably get away with airing the uncensored one, but that probably has more to do with if they ever even dubbed that episode, toonami just replaces the adult swim block so censorship isnt really a thing aside from nudity and the F bomb
Yes they dubbed that episode. I have the Bandai DVDs.

Oh so they separate anime and their horrible stoner comedies now, was unaware of that
Hey man, not all Adult Swim shows are bad. Rick and Morty is great.

Code Geass did show on adultswim for like 4 years. Toonami and Adultswim are both apart of same channel (Cartoon Network) . I don't understand why a lot of people think it's a separate channel. Knights of Sidonia art is an acquired taste, (I just put up with it but lets be honest it's not very good) a lot of people would not like it. They mostly show battle/action anime so Stein Gate would be out of the picture.

It's good to see Toonami is doing well again.

And hell, it's been a while since I watched TTGL, might as well rewatch it with dubs.

I wasn't even aware Toonami still existed wasn't it axed like 7 years ago... Also TTGL would be a better fit for Adult Swim imo.

Nothing that hasn't already been seen, but a change to the schedule is welcome.

The Toonami Block seems to be doing fine with adding new shows to the block.
