Adult Swim Premieres For The Weekend Of April 30


As we exit April and enter May, here’s what Adult Swim has in the works to make your weekend weird.

First off, the Three Busy Debras are back with two brand-new episodes. According to Adult Swim’s official description of what’s happening, “In ‘The Honorable Order of the Debras,’ Debra goes missing, and Debra and Debra must step in to save her before it’s too late. Or worse! Afterward, watch a story in three brunches in ‘To Have Debra, To Hold Debra.'” The episodes air this Sunday, May 1 at 12 a.m. ET/PT.

One day before then, Toonami kicks off with another new episode of the latest AS / Crunchyroll co-production, Shenmue: The Animation. This time, we can definitely confirm it’s the season finale, and possibly the last episode given that Toonami and Crunchyroll aren’t joined at the hip anymore. Here’s where we are in the story:

“1986, Yokosuka. Ryo Hazuki has trained to master the Hazuki Style Jujitsu under his strict father in the Hazuki Dojo from his childhood. However, one day a mysterious man named Lan Di murders his father and takes the “mirror” his father was protecting. Ryo is determined to find the truth behind his father’s murder, but soon finds himself getting stuck in a war between the underground organizations…. Traveling from Yokosuka to Hong Kong, Ryo’s long journey begins!

“In “Shenmue,” Ryo finally reaches Lan Di, the man who murdered his Father. Blinded by revenge Ryo viciously attacks Lan Di. Lan Di easily dodges Ryo’s attacks and leaves. Yellow Heads’ Dou Niu realizes his plan has failed and attacks Ryo.”

All episodes from any AS show can be viewed multiple ways: the network itself, Adult, and the Adult Swim app.
