But I was hoping for a better variety like Gundam or Rurouni Kenshin. Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell is great and all but Adult Swim already occasionally broadcasted them.

Anyway, I just watched the newest episode of Korra.
Spoiler for Latest Korra episode:
Lin is by far the most badass character and I cried when she sacrificed her bending to save Korra and Tenzin's family. for General Iroh
I also expected at least one Toonami classic revive (personally, I was hoping for Tenchi, and as much as I dislike it, that includes "In Tokyo") but I heard they were on a rather strict "probational" budget (as in "let's give it a shot, do good, mo' money for anime!") so I didn't bank on too much. Continuous support might change that though.

I think the English dubbed voice of DMW's main character was inteded to be "intentionally grating to offset character's true willpower" much like Baccanno!'s Jaccuzzi or Evangelion's Shinji, however, unlike Jaccuzzi and to a much lesser extent Shinji, it didn't quite capture the intended feeling.

Spoiler for Latest Korra episode:
I kinda get the same feeling for General Iroh's voice too... The character looks well older than the voice. Lin's bad-ass scale went up by 1000 points (like mother like daughter I guess, fear the awesomeness of BeiFongs)
