The Cartoon Network has announced the June schedule for its Toonami block and it includes several changes. Dragon Ball Z replaces G Gundam in the 5pm (ET, PT) timeslot and will act as the 'grabber' to pull viewers into the block. DBZ will be followed by episodes of Dragon Ball, the original series featuring the young Goku and his friend Bulma, which will air in DBZ's old time period at 5:30 pm. Yu-Yu Hakusho, a property that is starting to take off (see 'Yu Yu Hakusho Figures, CCG Deals Coming') follows at 6 pm, while the violent new star of the Toonami block, Rurouni Kenshin, follows at 6:30 pm. Starting on June 9 the Cartoon Network plans to run the Kyoto Arc of the Rurouni Kenshin, one of the most celebrated (and bloody) parts of the 94-episode anime series. Viewers can expect even more cuts in the Kyoto Arc than they have seen in previous episodes of Kenshin -- all the more reason for serious fans to buy the uncut Rurouni Kenshin DVDs available from Media Blasters.
