Dragonball Z is on other channels but why all these Gundams? How about the NEW Gundams and not the old ones? There arent any new anime they can show that are uncut? How about new One Piece, Naruto?
I really don't mind not being able to see any nudity in Tenchi Muyo to be honest, and of course some things will be edited, but from what I can tell, most of the Toonami fans don't really care about that kind of thing. Even when the campaign was only beginning, everyone knew that things weren't going to be completely displayed just like that for the shows.
Fans have given thought of mixing new anime with old to give it a fresh take. If you've missed the post Blackout had given, FUNimation is giving the fans the chance to do just that. And like he said, if you want a new show, then tweet them, and make sure that you have lots of back-up on that suggestion. Fans are asking for One-Piece, and for Naruto as well, but to some degree. No one wants the PTS Naruto series, they want Shippuden, but the deal with that is Disney XD held the rights for Shippuden. Of course, the show doesn't come on anymore on that channel, so the situation is up in the air. Can the rights be worked out and aired before the 26th? Or will there have to be a case about it?
The new One-piece isn't going to sail well, the horrible English dub of the younger One Piece series is as haunting and fresh as Dragon Ball Evolution when it arrived on set. Besides that, Adult Swim will most likely want to start from the very beginning of a series. So they'll need to show the old One Piece first before taking any swing at the newer version. Shippuden on Disney XD worked out fine since Cartoon Network had Naruto and finished the series before Toonami had been cancelled. So everyone mostly knew what was going on.

If people really are nostalgic for shows from the 90's and early 00's then you are better off buying the DVD's. The Seasons Sets of DBZ are okay if you are just a casual fan but you are always better off buying the Dragon Boxes.
Yeah, I don't think anyone's willing to spend any cash when the content is being presented to you for free. Especially when you know that people have better things and uses for their money in general.
