Toonami previously announced the addition of the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc anime, which will premiere on November 12 at 12 a.m. EST.
In addition, Toonami will start the second course (quarter year) of Dr. Stone: New World, the third season of the anime Dr. Stone, on November 12 at 1 a.m. EST.
IGPX holds a special place in Toonami’s history, being the first original series to premiere in 2003 and then in 2005. The joint venture between Production IG and Cartoon Network captivated audiences. Discotek, in 2016, released the 26-episode series complete with both subtitles and English dubbing.
Furthermore, Discotek announced in October that it would release both the Production IG and Toonami versions of the film on Blu-ray Disc, providing an enhanced experience through newly positioned distortion masters.
If you enjoyed “Immortal Grand Prix” for its thrilling mix of mecha battles and fierce competition, you might also appreciate the “Transformers” series. Both offer action-packed stories with transforming robots as a central element, creating an exciting mix of battles and character-driven stories. “Transformers” presents a larger-scale conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons, providing a similar adrenaline rush for fans of mechanical and robotic warfare.
