everybody falls in love sometimes

“Everybody loves somebody sometime. Everybody falls in love somehow.” -Dean Martin.

So with the whole son family week going on. I haven’t been participating due to commissions so here’s my contribution. Teen Goku and Teen Chi Chi need just as much love as their older selves.

As you can tell, this was heavily influenced by a certain episode of Samurai Jack ;) Enjoy!

Everybody loves somebody sometime
Everybody falls in love somehow
Something in your kiss just told me
My sometime is now
Everybody finds somebody someplace
There’s no telling where love may appear
Something in my heart keeps saying
My someplace is here
If I had it in my power
I’d arrange for every girl to have your charms
Then every minute, every hour
Everybody would find what I found in your arms
Everybody loves somebody sometime
And though my dreams were overdue
Your love made it well worth waiting for
For someone like you
— 

Dean Martin, “Everybody Loves Somebody” 

Those last two lines really encompass one of the things I love most about Jack and Ashi’s relationship. For all the crap Jack has gone through, for all his consistent failure to go back home, if none of that had happened, he’d never have even met Ashi. There’d never have been an Ashi to meet. 

It’s as if destiny was looking at Jack and saying, “No, not yet. Someone special is on their way to meet you.” and that’s beautiful to me.

Everybody loves somebody sometime

Everybody falls in love somehow

Something in your kiss just told me

That sometime is now.

Everybody finds somebody someplace

There’s no telling where love may appear

Something in my heart keeps saying

My someplace is here.

If I had it in my power

I’d arrange for every girl to have you charms

Then every minute, every hour

Everybody would find what I found in your arms.

What we learned tonight: even if someone tries REALLLYY HARD to kill you, they might still love you!

The Toonami Trending Rundown for May 6-7, 2017. Some big moments for the better cartoon show this week, with Jack and Ashi heading out on their quest to defeat Aku and developing their relationship along the way, while Gon and Killua try to escape from the hands of the Phantom Troupe, and Pain begins a surprise assault on the Leaf village, among other great moments.

Things would go pretty well trending-wise as every show successfully trended on Twitter during their respective East Coast airings, and Samurai Jack would also trend in the US during and after its West Coast airing as well. In addition, Samurai Jack, Dragon Ball Super, Attack on Titan, and Tokyo Ghoul would also trend on tumblr.

Finally, Samurai Jack would once again make the list of Nielsen Social’s top 5 most talked about shows on Twitter and Facebook, making it to the #4 spot. This is the 20th time a Toonami show has made it onto this list since we started recording this feat and the 5th for Samurai Jack this season.


This week, as part of an advertisement with Warner Bros. Pictures, Toonami showcased a preview of the new film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which included an interview with the film’s lead actor, Charlie Hunnam. You can check it out below.

This Memorial Day weekend, following the week Samurai Jack wraps up the season, it was announced on Thursday that Toonami will have an encore marathon of all 10 episodes of season 5 in a row, so for those who missed out on the initial run as well as for those who are up for binge-watching the entire season, you’ll have a chance to do so then.

Tune in next week as Samurai Jack showcases the penultimate episode of Season 5, among other great moments. Until next week, have a (early) Happy Mother’s Day and see you again on Saturday for another round of the better cartoon show.


Legend: The shows listed are ordered based on their appearance on the schedule. Show trends are listed in bold. The number next to the listed trend represents the highest it trended on the list (not counting the promoted trend), judging only by the images placed in the rundown. For the Twitter tweet counts, the listed number of tweets are also sorely based on the highest number shown based on the images on the rundown.

Notes and Other Statistics:

Special thanks to @coreymbarnes, @jmb70056, and others I forgot to mention for spotting some of the trends on this list.

See You, Space Cowboy. Only Toonami on [adult swim] on Cartoon Network.

I think people sometimes get the wrong impression when they’re like, Oh, well, so-and-so was straight and then she was gay, and now she’s straight again, you know? But it’s like, how many times do I have to kiss a woman before I’m gay? Everybody wants to label people. Sometimes you just fall in love with somebody, and you’re really not thinking about what gender or whatever they happen to be. It think that if I happen to fall in love with a woman, everyone’s going to make a big deal out of it. But if I happen to fall in love with a man, nobody cares.
