Does Japan have fansubs of American cartoons?
Posted 7/3/10
Yeah I watched SpongeBob in the morning at a hotel in Yamagata and it was dubbed in Japanese hahahaha it was so funny! I've seen so many eps of SpongeBob I knew what they were saying but I do speak a lot of Japanese, enough to understand SpongeBob's simple vocabulary

From http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2005-08-10/state-of-animation-industry-in-japan :

The sales of animation DVDs/videos in Japan was 80% Japanese anime and 20% imported animation.

Unfortunately, there is no break down by country for the imported animation.

yes, they probably do but it's probably hard to fansub it though.
the english language is a multi language all bundled up in one. (:

not all imported animations are from America.. :happy:

Thus the mention of "no break down by country".


and she asked for fansubs.....

Remember this was a response to your message, which only indicated your belief they would not be interested in American cartoons.

More to the point of that, in A 2005 nationwide survey sampling persons of all ages ranked Tom and Jerry at 85 in a list of of the top 100 anime of all time. It was the only non-Japanese animation that made the list.

Not much reason for either a fansub or dub of that one, however.

In more modern terms, it appears Spongebob Squarepants pulls in a viewership of about 2 million households, which would equate to a rating of about 3%. Lest you think that is low, compare it to the ratings for anime:

A bit more on American cartoons in Japan:

I doubt it would qualify as "going gaga", but it appears they definitely are interested in them.

okay.. my bad for linking this to the forum topic then..
if this only concerns my message, you said it yourself, i said "going gaga", i used that term because she was asking for fansubs, that only a dedicated fan would do. I didnt mention anything about not watching them
So dont say that i have a belief that they would not be interested in American cartoons...you're putting words on my mouth..
