    oh! i heard of the lollipop with sanji.

    (spoiler, highlight)
    I wondered how the episode when franky joined the crew would go, since it mostly involved robin crushing his balls.

    Probably the only Voice i cant stand really is Luffies on the 4Kids Dub, not sure if its better thru the Funimation Dub, but it seems the rest of the voices for 4Kids were alright.

    Yep!!! They sure did!!! I'm so glad that they stopped airing and doing them here... Why do you have to go threw all the trouble of rewriting and redrawing just to show it here... If you gotta do any of that, just call it a day, and move on... I mean, yes, it gives people jobs... But to chop an anime for "Americans" only is somewhat..... GRRRRRRRRRRR, I didn't like it at all.. They lost a lot of their viewing public because of that as well since they found the anime online and saw that it wasn't anywhere near what they where showing..

    Mussels... Your spoiler part was just plain WRONG!

    Manga Entertainment i believe Kept all the Original Content, but you will never see that on national TV, only Premium Channels like Stars or DVD Release. DBZ is Uncut for the US nowadays but its only on DVD now.

    they do indeed follow that stupid strategy.

    Its more than stupid - children who watch and like it, get their parents to buy the DVD's - only to find sexual references, adult themes and violence.

    Older people (teens) who may have liked it, see the watered down version on TV, and therefore never buy it.

    It seems to me it should have been left alone, and not murdered into being a childrens show, merely because its a 'cartoon'

    Lol.. you think I'm that twisted huh? lol.. Once I get home I'll have to look it up. Work Servers don't like that kind of stuff! lol

    To me, I tihnk that they should of kept it how it was in America. Sci-fi, now SyFy, did showings at 1am on the weekend and showed everything how it is.. Now, they are showing it on Monday's at 11pm, but isn't the same. The thing that really sucks on having american tv is that they have so "HIGH" standards on how things are suppose to be, that its not even right for anime.. Yeah, you got Anime Network, but for most viewing options, Bright House has on-demand, it doesn't show anything good since it's On-demand and set up for what they want... Not what the network it self wants..
    Anime is one of those things that just rape you time and time again... Not because of the makers, but because of how "STANDARDS" are for people...

    Full Metal Panic live-action movie featuring Zac Efron will have no mecha whatsoever; Sagara Sousuke will be a high-school basketball player. :banghead:


    The only decent enough English dubs are Gundam. But then again they're not exactly great...

    ....

    *starts sharpening swords*
    *gets map to screenplay writer's house*

    I only just got my official dvd sets of fmp 1 & fumoffu to re-watch as my fansubs are a little off on the translations. Gonna import FMP series 2 when it gets released on blu-ray in august, only because there is no european region release of series 2 on dvd. If they release a live action which murders the anime bad things will happen in the world (which i can't be held responsible for - this is their only warning...)

    In unrelated news i've been playing Tales of vesperia on my xbox 360 - reason i've posted it in here is it is an anime style RPG (both in graphics, characters and storyline, not sure if it's based on manga at all) and it is simply brilliant - i havn't had this much fun since FF8 was released. Highly reccomended if you're after a good game for summer.

    Ok, so I just finished Seirei no Moribito. How in the hell did this one get in under the radar for me!?!?!?

    Great series. A definite must see. Perfect blend of tragedy, comedy, romance, etc.

    Now I'm again faced with a problem, what does one watch after watching a good series like that?
    MKmods and kid41212003 say thanks.

    Stop watching whatever anime it is you are watching currently, and watch Moribito now. Quit putting it off. It's incredible.
