America's Cartoon Network has reportedly revealed at Georgia's Anime Weekend Atlanta convention this morning that it will end its Toonami programming block tonight after 11 years. The official announcement will be made during tonight's final run, with an "important message" during the 10:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. ET/PT timeslot. Naruto has been the only Japanese series in this Saturday evening block recently, but Toonami used to host a variety of Japanese-animated programs when it began as a weekday afternoon block in 1997. Among those titles were Voltron, Robotech, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, Ronin Warriors, G-Force: Guardians of Space, Blue Submarine No. 6, Tenchi Muyo!, Cardcaptors, Zoids, .hack//SIGN, Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, The Big O, Outlaw Star, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Cyborg 009, Duel Masters, Astro Boy, Gundam, Rave Master, Zatch Bell, One Piece, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, Pokémon, MÄR, The Prince of Tennis, Megaman Star Force, Bakugan Battle Brawlers, and Blue Dragon. The Toonami Jetstream online streaming service will reportedly still continue, and Cartoon Network is working to import the Japanese-animated Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z spinoff that is based on its own Powerpuff Girls series.

Two episode of Naruto are currently scheduled for tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The 2002 live-action Spider-Man film will run instead of Toonami on September 27, although most television listings have not been updated yet. Batman: Gotham Knight, this summer's Japanese-animated video tie-in to The Dark Knight film, will then run on October 4 at 8:00 p.m. After Batman: Gotham Knight, an episode of Naruto, "Powerful Helper," will run at 9:30 p.m., but there are no other episodes scheduled yet.

See you, space cowboy.

When I saw the message that Toonami aired saying that they were ending after an 11 year run I honestly felt terrible. It is a shame that they ended what was a very large part of my and many other people's childhood so abruptly. So I decided to call up some friends and have a little farewell to Toonami party tomorrow. I do hope that it isn't true though, and/or that they decide to bring it back.

dude, your reference to space cowboys made me think they were taking out Cowboy Bebop.

Don't scare me like that...


Cartoon network still has Adult Swim. Adult Swim has Cowboy Bebop, so it is (arguably) better than Toonami.

They took off all the cool shows a long time ago. Once Rurouni Kenshin and YuYu Hakusho were gone (2 of the very few anime that I can stand to watch) it died for me. It was kind of dragging on and relying on Naruto too much, so it needed to die anyway.
