hmm, what does everyone have against 4kids? i hardly watch anything from them (except from bratz, which isnt a anime). i watched one piece one time, and it wasnt too bad. someone enlighten me and tell me why people hate that company so much??

Because they were one of the last companies to "Americanize" anime and make it "kid-safe". A lot of people blame them for One Piece (which they originally held the license to) not being more popular in the United States.



Wait, what could've One Piece been if they hadn't altered it? Like, where did they go wrong?

as much as I hate to say this i would have never heard of the show if 4kids never brought it over. I did like the yugioh dub because of how bad it was but who in the world dug up my old thread??? ... That aside at least 4kids never did this

In general I think we need more diversity in localization, not less.

That said, I think 4kids had it coming.

ooh right! i hate it when they try to act really eco friendly for kids, when they are exposed to more swearing and nudity in real life then in a fake anime thing. i thought one piece was still cool though, even in english dub. but i suppose it wouldnt bother me if they did get sued, if it meant anime in english dub would be more like the japanese one.
