Both shows along with Bleach, will be the only new programing thus far seen on Toonami. Given that Deadman Wonderland is only twelve episodes no doubt Adult Swim has another anime they've purchased which will air once the series finishes it's twelve episode run.

Just to clarify. Casshern/Casshan was originally a manga in a magazine. The "classic" series Shinzo Ningen Casshan, was animated by Tatsunoko. There was an orgiginal video series by Tatsunono and Artmic in the early 90s. Sins, the recent series, is animated by Madhouse.
