"Samurai 7" to Replace "Deadman Wonderland" on Toonami

2004 sci-fi series joined block on August 19th

Following the conclusion of Deadman Wonderland, Cartoon Network will continue to program Toonami's relatively fresh content with the August premiere of Samurai 7. Gonzo's sci-fi remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Seven Samurai has been released in North America by FUNimation and previously ran on IFC in 2006.


Following Deadman Wonderland's conclusion on August 12th, Samurai 7 will premiere at 12:30am on the 19th.  Deadman Wonderland will be released by FUNimation on DVD October 9th.


The 2004 Samurai 7 was notable at the time for airing in high-def with a budget twice that of the average standard definition anime.
