Watch The Clone Wars on Toonami

We don’t typically do news at FANgirl, but we do post reaction pieces…

Hell yeah!

And you can quote me on that.

The Asajj Ventress image was featured on today’s Toonami Tumblr chat, where they announced Adult Swim will begin airing The Clone Wars on August 17th. The OutHousers summarizes:

They also stated they would be skipping kid friendly or slow episodes (namely anything involving the Senate and Jar Jar Binks) focusing more on the episodes more memorable  and action heavy. Toonami also said they’re trying to get their hands on the uncut episodes from the show along with airing episodes in their original 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Also they are looking into if they can air the BONUS CONTENT of episodes that were finished, but never aired.

James at Club Jade points out the reason given by the network for picking up the show. Toonami said, “We chose to pick it up because it’s a great show!”
