Well this is quite the nice surprise. I don’t often partake in live television these days though after the triumphant return of Cartoon Network’s Toonami programming block I’ve seriously considered it simply for the nostalgia. This past weekend I had the opportunity to watch the newly remounted Toonami live for the first time since its reboot.
In addition to the usual fare of anime and video game reviews there was a speech from host TOM 5.0 that spoke about, of all things, equality.
This is far from the first time TOM has spoken on such issues. Back in the day he used to deliver speeches on everything from having the courage to stand up for yourself to the importance of being an individual. Those speeches always resonated with me as a young lad, navigating the tricky world of being an outcast, and I’m sure this new one is hitting home for some kid somewhere just the same.
Thanks for keeping this tradition alive Toonami!
