Coronavirus outbreak is causing a lot of fan conventions to be postponed indefinitely or even get canceled. Biggies such as Anime Japan 2020 and Anime Boston 2020 have already been canceled.
It has also caused the delay of production schedules for many manga and anime. In these tough times, many streaming services are offering their premium service for free to the public to promote social distancing. One such big streamer is Toonami, who is bringing back one of the major classics of all time.
Toonami released a promotional video on Facebook announcing that it will be featuring the first seven episodes of Dragon Ball Z Kai Cell Saga on Saturday, April 11th from 11:30 PM EST to 3:00 AM EST.
This marathon will start from the episode where Super Saiyan Vegeta fights Cell and eventually allows him to absorb Android 18 to Goku’s first confrontation with Cell.
The show line-up for Toonami on that day will look like:
- 12:00 AM – My Hero Academia
- 12:30 AM – Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
- 1:00 AM – Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma
- 1:30 AM – Black Clover
- 2:00 AM – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind
- 2:30 AM – Naruto: Shippuden
