I don't like Asuna's voice in Negima. (English Version) To me, her voice doesn't really fit her personality. She sounds like a little kid, and she sounds a little too sweet.

well, its true that commercial anime for kids that produce lots of mechandice (pokemon, onepeice, shaman king, pokemon, DBZ, Sailor moon, ect) are often screwed to the max (althought naruto's isnt that bad), other, more serious, shorter anime oftern have much better ones, like Ghost in the Shell, Stand alone complex, samurai champloo, and Cowboy bebop (just to name a few) have very good dubs.
it all depends on what anime it is, I guess.


I think its more of WHERE the anime is placed. Notice how ALL of the good ones you said were on adult swim instead of cartoon network? Thats because they can keep the kool stuff on Adult Swim and it seems less childish

I think America does butcher some anime but they do it for the right reasons. If I had a kid I don't think I'd actually want them to see what was actually going on.

I tend not to watch the US versions of anime shows but it is hardly surprising that they get butchered when there are people like this knocking about.

America isnt the one fucking up your anime, its the corperations that stream the anime into american televisions, sure they're american companies, but its not like the american gov't is secretly plotting against your joy of watching half decent anime...jeez

Japan has children too, but they don't cut scenes from anything. It's just most Americans tend to carelessly leave their children to watch the television, it's ain't the TV's fault, it's you idiot parents. DUBs are for people with very slow reading skills. ;P

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..


i always think that cutting out the scenes from anime to censor them is a bit hypocritical of the western censorship boards....

they should actually start censoring their own products man! c'mon under 10 year old boys listening to 50 cent about violence and gun blazing??? soft porn in posters all over the city??? hello???

anyway, anime should be left as it is...besides things that are said in the dialogue can be heard in everyday in people's mouths all the time!!!
