The name is a combination of "toon" and the Japanese term "banzai," and it reflects the bulk of the anime programs on the channel. The block was replaced by Saban Brands' Vortexx, which premiered on August 24, 2012.
Anime Banzai is Utah's largest and most important anime convention. A three-day event that includes celebrity visitors, gaming tournaments, scavenger hunts, seminars, costumes, an arcade, and much more! It takes place in the Salt Lake City area every year in April.
Anime Banzai was founded in 2001 by a group of friends who wanted to create a fun environment where people could come together to celebrate all things anime. The convention is held at the Rose Wagner Pavilion at Brigham Young University - South Campus in South Salt Lake, which is about 20 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. There are plenty of hotels nearby if you need help finding one that fits your budget.
The convention center is divided into different rooms with panels, concerts, and other events taking place in them throughout the weekend. There's also a lighted tennis court where attendees can play some video games or hang out with others.
Cartoon Network's first-ever anime series, which debuted in 1995, had a brief (and last) re-appearance on the weekend version of Toonami Midnight Run from January to March 2000, replacing Robotech and then Voltron. This was part of an effort by Cartoon Network to attract younger viewers who were leaving traditional television for alternative programming streams such as MTV and VH1.
The opportunity to watch your favorite anime characters in action! With new episodes airing every week, there's always something new to see when you visit the Toonami website or go online to watch with our friends. You never know what might happen during an episode - maybe Goku will team up with Sonic the Hedgehog or Captain America! Or maybe Rammy will show up and fight Shulk! The possibilities are endless!
There are only six seasons of original anime available so far, plus two short films that haven't been released outside of Japan. That's it! No more, no less. If you're a fan of one of these shows, the chances are very high that you'll be disappointed by this fact. But still, everyone should give them a try at some point in their lives.

Nope. It's an independent bullet-hell/danmaku game (15+ games and counting) with ladies as protagonists and opponents, and it all revolves around mythology from Japan and beyond. Created by "Team Shanghai Alice," which, unfortunately, has just one Japanese member, "ZUN" (Junya Oota).
Also, the characters are pretty cute.
This is the world of Yasuke, a new Netflix anime series based on the real-life black warrior who fought under Oda Nobunaga, one of medieval Japan's great unifiers. LeSean Thomas, the show's creator, first encountered Yasuke in the 1960s children's novel Kuro-suke by Kurusu Yoshio. The story follows another famous black soldier from Africa, Amadirojme, who fights for Spain in the 16th century Italy.
Yasuke (also spelled Gaspard or Gascard) was born around 1555 in what is now Nigeria. He was captured as a child and sold into slavery. His owner took him to Japan, where he was trained as a fighter.
In 1579, when Yasuke was about 30 years old, he met Oda Nobunaga at the Battle of Onojejo. Although Nobunaga was defeated that day, it made Yasuke famous and helped bring an end to his fighting career.
After Nobunaga's death, Yasuke went back to being a slave until he was freed by one of Nobunaga's allies. He married into the family and became part of their staff. But even after getting married, he kept his own identity and continued to fight for the team even though they were not using him anymore. He died in 1589 at the age of 39 or 40.
