Toonami Roundup: 4/8/17


This week, in Toonami…

Dragon Ball Super episode 13: It’s all about Mr. Satan’s antics this week, as he’s become even more over the top than he usually is. Goku’s power runs out, but he’s still fighting Beerus fruitlessly. So much padding. Rating: *1/2

Dragon Ball Z Kai episode 112: Spopovitch beats Videl and injures her badly. Goku has to leave the planet to go get some Sensu Beans. And Mr. Satan, like in the other episode, is over the top crazy. It’s up to Gohan to at last have some revenge on Spopovitch. Rating: **

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure episode 24: Using some smoke and mirrors, Jojo is able to defeat Kars, or so we think. Kars goes down into the spikes, but he still has the red stone of Aja and can make a comeback. Also, a long flashback by Speedwagon. Rating: ***1/2

Tokyo Ghoul episode 3: Could we just replace everything about this series with a picture of a cup of coffee? That would be a lot more appetizing to me. Rating: 1/2

Hunter x Hunter episode 46: Uvogin has escaped, and now he’s after Kurapika. The other Phantom Troupers help him find Kurapika, and the two of them prepare for battle. This is all setup for the climax of Hunter x Hunter. Trust me, folks, it’s all downhill after this arc. Rating: ***

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn episode 14: Easily the best episode yet. I could actually understand what the heck was going on over there. I enjoyed this episode a lot. If they were all like this one, I may be able to stomach the series. Rating: ***

Naruto Shippuden episode 153: The Naruto gang tries to figure out what the numbers on the back of the frog mean. Kakashi’s conclusion is hilarious. The rest of it is simply Naruto pouting. Rating: **1/2

Ghost in the Shell episode 10: A typical murder mystery, with very little spice or action to it. Rating: **

Best show of the week: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure

Most surprisingly good show of the week: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn

Most disappointing show of the week: Tokyo Ghoul
