Uub in Dragonball Z, but he plays a small part.

I think he is seen more in GT.

I'd never considered how it could come across in writing because I always read it as one of the characters saying it (do other people do this with anime names? I'd never realized I did it until just now). But it's true if you say the Y with a short I sound...eesh. It's always said as Nigh-gus with a long I sound, but still...they changed it from Naigusu for the English translations. Maybe they should've just left it alone.

I agree with The Boondocks, it's kind of like anime, and it's based off a comic strip. It's a must watch for anyone.

I dunno if it was just me, but that was the first thing I noticed when I read this, They really should have just left it alone.
