I'm whelmed by Toonami's return

So just in case you've found yourself frozen in carbonite for the past several days and didn't know, Toonami is coming back. Specifically, it's returning as part of Adult Swim and therein lies the reason why I'm whelmed - it's Toonami in name only. Topless Robot posted the block's schedule for this coming Saturday, take a look:

12:00 a.m. - Bleach
12:30 a.m. - Deadman Wonderland
1:00 a.m. - Casshern Sins
1:30 a.m. - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
2:00 a.m. - Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG
2:30 a.m. - Cowboy Bebop

Pretty much Adult Swim is taking the Toonami name and bumpers and slapping them onto its own late-night anime block. I share Bricken's disappointment, I was really hoping that they would bring back old standards like Gundam Wing, Outlaw Star, and Yu Yu Hakusho.
