IGPX Returning to Toonami, Plus 'New Look'
Toonami has announced two very big things coming on April 27th. First of which is that IGPX, the only 'original' show that Toonami produced, is returning to it's home and will be airing anew on the block (time to be determined).
Here's a brief synopsis of IGPX, courtesy of ANN.
In the year 2035 Team Suzaku and Team Sledge Mamma are preparing to meet in the final round of the 12th Immortal Grand Prix (IGPX). Takeshi leads Team Suzaku, which is made-up of a group of young amateur pilots who must make the most of their limited funds and weaponry in order to prepare for the competition designed for professionals.
Secondly, April 27th is also the date that they'll be rolling out the 'revamp' of Toonami, with a new design for T.O.M. and the Absolution, a new online Toonami comic giving a 'story' reason for all the changes, and just a whole new look all around. When One Piece is coming to Toonami is still being decided.
I for one can't wait to see IGPX as I never got to see it before, but the main thing I'm excited for is to check out the new look for the block.
