So far, they've skipped the Drum Arc, one episode in the Roguetown/Loguetown story, the "Where are they Now?" episode (involving Buggy), the bit where they first meet Miss Valentine/Number 9, and the Giant Island episode(s). So, in all, about three-five episodes that were a part of the original manga's story are missing. The exclusion of those episodes is sucktastic, but it's a better track record than other anime (Pokemon's still cutting episodes appearently).
My complaint is that there are people who unfortunetly don't understand that in order to get what you want (unedited DVD's), you're gonna have to deal with the system and American Standards and Practices. Not only that, but you have to prove to the licensing company that making such a product would be worth thier time and money. That includes tuning into the show (okay, mainly Neilson families, but that's another matter), buying the DVD's that are released and filling out those forms that come with the DVDs.
Putting CB in that list was a bad idea, but NGE also premired on Toonami back when it was still on in the day. Maybe I should've replaced CB with Robotech/Ronin Warriors/Battle of the Planets/etc.
The point is that supporting the product will eventually result in a better product. Customer service only works if the business knows there's an interest in their product. Shaman King is the perfect example of customer inaction. And it's why DBZ is still making money.
Sorry if I ventured too far off topic.
alright then i guess I will read the manga first.
