Toonami Anime Block Returns to Adult Swim on May 26 [UPDATED]

Everyone's nostalgic dreams finally come true

If you were around for Adult Swim's grand, unforgettable April Fools' night on Cartoon Network, during which they ran a classic block of Toonami anime, then this shouldn't be too big of a surprise: Toonami is officially coming back. Adult Swim has made the big announcement, setting the block's return for May 26.



As unsurprising as it may be, the outpouring of fans who want their good ol' anime block back over the past month-plus has been pretty overwhelming and awesome, especially on Twitter. According to a TV Guide listing via an update on ANN, this is the lineup for the night.
