I was just watching pokemon the first movie on vhs that ive had since elmentary school and now that im older i now realize how horribly they mutalated the sound track . the end credits had like 4 30 second clips of diffrent american pop songs like m2m and s**t(just for money probally). I know every one hates pokemon now but i was wondring how the rest of you fell about americans screwing over animes.

Not to mension they almost always have voice acters who make the characters sound completely different from what suppose to. It vexes me so! They usually do it to my favorite characters, too. Example I don't know if any of you watch Slayers, but they made Xelloss sound like he had a cold the whole time! I couldn't stand it and ended up watching the Japanese version I hated it so much.

No some dubbing is actually better than in the japaneese for example DBZ is ebtter in english and even kenshin in japaneese kenshin sounds like Rukia

So no animation from the isles off the continent can be innately bad, it’s always those dastardly round eyes and their vile pig tongues that ultimately ruin every cell repeating, work-of-art shipped off? Translation can be bad but you can’t blame the American or Canadian companies for everything. It was a movie based on a television show that was made to market toys, games and whole assortment of other mindless memorabilia to children or anyone else that liked the series. They had to keep it as broad and shallow as possible for the greatest profit range among their target audience, kids/fans that wouldn’t give two damns about a plot they only cared to see their favorite electric rodent on the big screen. Even in the original linguistic.

Don’t forget the one drive that essentially allows anime anywhere in the first place, commercialism. If you can’t sell a series no one is going to put the money into the production of the books, cartoons, or what have you for said idea.

Dubbed anime...yeah I hate anything dubbed...but then again I hate reading the subtitles....So I cant say. They do an overall decent job. I mean have you ever seen movies, cartoons converted from english to another dialect.??? Do they do a good job at it either? So yeah..there is always going ot be complaints..but if its close enough...what is there to complain about? If you think you can do a better job then by all means please. funding would be one hell of an issue though. As well as finding the right people to fit it.

I know about that..and I have seen the japanese version as well....its all due to the country's regulations....would you like to have 5 year old childeren watching naruto and seeing those partially nude scense or a lot of red blood squirtying out? They want the anime to appeal to as many people.....it depends on their market as well..... how they want to advertise and who they want to appeal to.

I mean culturally Ive been watching sex scese and blood, gore in movies for a long time..because my parents are closer to their ethnic culture where they dont care about that stuff...out here in the U.S. if you have a more american family..there are regulations..
