"Achieving 9.5 million video streams since our July 14 launch proves that fans are looking to Toonami Jetstream as the online destination of choice for action and anime programming. We will continue to offer a variety of the newest and most exciting animated series for our fans to access at anytime for their viewing pleasure."

The initial numbers confirm that we selected a strong offering for the launch," added John Easum, Executive Vice President for VIZ Media. "We look forward to adding even more exciting and popular series to the list in the future."
Regular viewers of the sight can continue to catch episodes of Cartoon Network hits such as "Naruto", "Samurai Jack" and "Megas XLR", as well as new episodes of "Hikaru no Go", "MAR" and "The Prince of Tennis", which are only available on the Toonami Jetstream site and have never been on U.S. broadcast or basic cable. New episodes of each show are available weekly, while previous episodes are available for a limited time at the site’s archive for those checking it out for the first time.
