scarredtiger asked: What will it take for Toonami to become available in Canada(or any other country, but mostly Canada)? What are my options as an individual besides following along on twitter with my DVDs?
That’s really, really tough to say. International Toonami distribution has to have a big presence in the region it’s being requested for, and I mean big. Large scale letter writing campaigns, as well as a big presence on social media.
Obviously, we’re (“we” meaning ToonamiFaithful.com) open to helping our neighbors to the north as well as buddies across the pond but we have Toonami, we’re busy providing content and stirring up interest and awareness in the block and frankly, we’re somewhat taking Toonami for granted. We’re not going to have the mindspace nor the time to continue rallying people for international causes when we have a lot going domestically. It’s going to take someone with a large following as well as the patience to keep up the efforts.
Quick tips: Don’t e-mail Cartoon Network/[adult swim] USA. [adult swim] recently launched in Canada (back in 2012 if I’m not completely mistaken), e-mail them. Be polite, and obviously there has to be a big outpouring of support from more than just 20 people. Feel free to tell them that Canada is the second largest audience for the Toonami Faithful Podcast (can’t give you exact numbers though, those are proprietary for our use only). I believe there’s an audience there, they just have to get organized and show [adult swim] that the investment is worth the effort.
