    Alright, I will agree the new name is horrible. However, knowing that I also will say this: If I was a kid my folks would toss out any book I bought with the word Satan on the cover if it wasn't directly related to Church. I'm not saying that my folks are fanatics, but they are a bit old fassioned. Even I am. Still the name 666 Satan is realy cool, and I use it in refrence when I can. Talking to current manga people at shops though, I use the "new" name. In short I don't think that it is the kids buying it they are worried about, but the parents who want to protect their kids from debatable material. I know over a dozen already that don't mind comics, but would still do what I mentioned earlier.

    If it was called 666 Satan I'm sure that alot of people would put it down without even looking at the manga. Strangely enough for some, like myself, I was lured to it because of it's name. I wondered "what kind of story could a manga called 666 satan have? " I thought it was just going to be some crazy antichrist book with pictures, luckily I was wrong :P

    really the main reason as said is not to offend anyone. the new name is stupid. they could have thought of a decent name to replace 666 Satan but I can't think of a better name.
    I admit that I was drawn to the manga by the name.
    But there are people who would ban a book just because it had one swear word in there, so looking at this its not such a big deal. Then again the people likely to read this aren't going to be little kiddies who need their mommies to allow them to read it or are likely to be offended by the title. the English speaking community that is going to read manga is a more liberal minded section of society, so those who read manga and dislike the name will most likely simply not read it.

    in other words its the fanatics that fuck this world up

    ive been checking the story and characters on wikipedia and it looks so cool, definately better than naruto, however the name 666 satan is keeping me from reading it. It just doesnt feel right. The new name may not be so bad, and i doubt an anime cud come to america under that name. I personally think they shouldve named it after the star, jio. Just like naruto is..just a thought

    What??? The name is keeping you from reading it? Yet you took to the time to research it... If you went that far, dont you think you can read it now? It is JUST a story. I'd rather see 666 Satan and be like "ok, this has something to do with Satan" than to see Da Vinci Code and regret watching it.

    i think that the only reason they changed it because of all the bullshit criticism that they would get at leaving it 666 Satan so they decided to change it for the company sake that and the fact a lot of Christian will protest it and that will get on ppls nerve

    imo i think that 666 Satan is more of a hook then O-part hunter cuz if thats how they Named it in japan i wouldn't even be reading right now

    This is so annoying... I wish people wouldn't be so sensitive. 666 Satan isn't even religious, really...

    Well, from what I heard, other than the title, not much else has been edited...

    I probably end up buying it anyways because...

    One: I wanna support the mangaka.

    And Two: Manga volumes are a lot easier to skim through when you wanna look for a certain scene, rather than downloading a million chapters on the internet.

    O-Parts Hunter is bad name, but... they could've done worse! I mean, it could've ended up being something lame like... 'JIO FREED AND FRIENDS AND THEIR AMAZING O-PARTS ADVENTURES!!!'
