Anime Expo 2016: Toonami Panel

-Attendees got free Tom t-shirts and special Fooly Cooly posters

-One-Punch Man dubbed is coming to Toonami July 16(?)
*One-Punch Man is the story of super hero so powerful it only takes one punch to stop any bad guy. This leaves our hero utterly bored with being a super hero and with life.

-Intruder 3 comes out this November

-Samurai Jack is being worked on currently, video of creator Genndy Tartakovsky and crew shown
*Will be darker than original show
*Jack now has a beard
*Time has passed (years) within the show
-Kazuya Tsurumaki, the creator of "FLCL" and Mayumi Shintani, the voice behind Haruko were in the audience

-Fooly Cooly 2 was wanted by Toonami for ten years, but only recently did Production I.G. call up Toonami and started to get it made

-Mic power dropped causing hilarious time where panelists sounded far away or had to yell at audience.

-Q & A had same problems where fans had to yell to be heard

-Panelists blamed AX

-AX made the panel end early with special five-minute showcase of dubbed One-Punch Man not shown
