On March 26, 2001, Cartoon Network launched Toonami Reactor, their first online streaming video service. The 12 week service featured 40 episodes of Dragon Ball Z's Frieza Saga, 26 episodes of Star Blazers (an online-exclusive series that never appeared on Toonami), two new Dragon Ball Z games and two new Toonami-specific games.[1][2] Editorial content was provided by the now-defunct Animerica Magazine, published by VIZ Media. After the three-month "trial run" was over, Cartoon Network took it offline and completely revamped it.

On November 14, 2001, Cartoon Network relaunched Toonami Reactor with all online-exclusive programs such as Star BlazersHarlock Saga, and Record of Lodoss War as well as videos from Daft Punk and Toonami-themed games. Patlabor was added on February 18, 2002. In the summer of 2002, Toonami Reactor was revamped again under the Adult Swim aegis and, with a joint venture with VIZ's Weekly Shonen Jump, programmed it as "Adult Swim Pipeline."
