Cartoon Network's Twitter account confirmed just today that they have acquired television broadcast rights to air Black Lagoon. The series will premiere on the network's Toonami block starting Saturday, March 22 where it will replace Soul Eater's current time slot of 1:30 AM.

The 12-episode action anime is adapted from Rei Hiroe's seinen manga series that aired in 2006. The series focuses on Japanese salaryman Rokuro "Rock" Okajima becoming involved with a trio of pirates called Black Lagoon Company who have their headquarters in the crime-infested Thailand town of Ronapour.

The series was originally licensed and released to American home video by Geneon in 2007, before the distributor closed down later in the year which left future volumes of the series in limbo. Funimation acquired licensing rights to the series in 2008, releasing both seasons of the series on DVD and Blu-Ray formats. They have since also released the third OVA installment of the series, Roberta's Blood Trail, onto DVD and Blu-Ray.

Toonami has been on a roll lately with some major announcements including the world premiere/dubbed simulcast of Space Dandy coming this January. On the same day as this (which is projected to be January 4) Naruto Shippuden will be taking over the original Naruto’s 12:30 spot starting from the beginning of the series. The original Naruto has aired on the block since last December and will be ending after only 52 episodes on November 30 with a 3 week schedule of movies clearing that spot through most of December. Shippuden dub premiers will continue to air on Viz’s Neon Alley streaming service. Naruto will have 168 episodes unaired from the series so completionist might want to get moving on that.

Aniplex of America is looking to keep their Toonami slot filled with the announcement that their show Blue Exorcist will be premiering on Adult Swim's Saturday night anime block this coming March. Their other show Sword Art Online is projected to be finishing up its run on the block on February 15th while Soul Eater is ending on March 15th, leaving one to assume that Blue Exorcist will be taking the Soul Eater spot with yet another to be named show coming in February. With the announcement Toonami published a trailer for it on their official YouTube channel which can be seen below. Not much to say about the show outside of it being a good match to compliment an already solid line up of shonen action series. Aniplex has released the dub in two limited edition box sets earlier this year.

Adult Swim's weekly Saturday night anime block Toonami previously announced that they would be taking a break from the normal schedule come the holidays and be airing three movies through December. The full line up of movies for the month was announced today and features a wide array of great films. Previously said to be three weeks of movies has now gone up to four, probably due to a packaging deal considering all of the films are from Funimation. Here is the line up!

12/7 - Akira

One of the most influential anime films of all time, especially in American fandom, Akira is a perfect fit for the action block with gorgeous and fluent animation that still holds up well considering it is form 1988. It should be interesting to see how they censor a certain scene, if at all, and whether they will take the newer Pioneer or classic Streamline dub. Only time will tell I suppose. The film was recently re-released by Funimation on Blu-ray.

12/14 - Summer Wars

From director Mamoru Hosoda, of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and the recently released Wolf Children fame, the family friendly film Summer Wars is a wonderful tale of family and adventure with a hint of Miyazaki flare. Not a full on action movie but a great choice to diversify the line up.

12/21 - Fullmetal Alchemist:Conqueror of Shamballa

Sequel to original Fullmetal Alchemist series. A weird choice considering they have yet to air the 2003 run and the currently running remake Brotherhood has its own movie.

12/28 - Trigun: Badlands Rumble

The adult swim classic Trigun is back, which I could of sworn aired on Toonami back in the day, with the full length movie that came out 12 years after the original series with some great animation and action.

Also promised are some amazing promos, shirt giveaways, and absolution scenes so it should be an interesting month for Toonami fans.
