Cartoon Network’s Toonami programming block returned this week after a nearly 4 year hiatus. It will air as part of Adult Swim on Saturdays Midnight – 6AM.

In addition to the regular lineup, two new series premiered:

Deadman Wonderland, which is about an amnesiac boy named Ganta. He’s framed for the murder of his classmates and sent to a gladiatorial prison where he meets Shiro, a strange girl in skin-tight bodysuit that leaves little to the imagination. They’re best friends but Ganta doesn’t remember.

Casshern Sins, which about an about an amnesiac robot boy named Casshern, who is a literal killing machine. He is hated and hunted for bringing about the end of the world.

“This is a marathon, not a sprint. Keep watching if you want more stuff, and we’ll keep you posted,” tweeted Jason DeMarco, VP of strategic marketing and promotions for Cartoon Network and Adult Swim.

The Toonami bumps featured all new animation but its CGI host TOM (Steve Blum) was oddly quiet with the exception of a video game review of I Am Alive. That’s probably a result of how rushed they were. It was only last month that the idea of Toonami returning was an April Fools’ joke.
