Turn A Gundam was designed to be a success in America. The dark skinned feminine looking lead, along with the white villain was designed to appeal to the female and minorities of America. It was most likely intended to air after G Gundam, but because of the war and low ratings(due to a common japanese illness, Shit Taste) Japan gave it, it was decided to not air. Then when Gundam finally returned to Toonami, they choose to run with SEED due to how much Japan loved it.
