Typically the beginning of the year is a restart for cable networks. News is fairly scarse until around the springtime when shows are back from Winter break (most places are dealing with cold temps and no sun… looking at you, Alaska *sadface*).

That being said, here’s a bit of news in the Toonami sector. Ninja Kamui is slated to make its US premiere on Toonami, this Feburary 10th at Midnight (and next day on Max). Announced last Summer by AS, Ninja Kamui is directed by Sunghoo Park (The God of High School) and co-produced by E&H Productions and SOLA ENTERTAINMENT with a video game adaptation slated for release as well (details soon).
