I personally think the show is ok, it could be a lot better but its ok, and you also have to keep in mind the network 4Kids.Tv is mostly for young kids....maybe from 1-10. They had to change some stuff like take out blood and stuff like that so it would be ok for young viewers. I saw this show and it did get me to read the manga (which is amazing!!!) and I do agree the anime doesn't live up to the manga. Before you complain about the anime you should think about the age group they made the anime suitable for...young kids, so it isn't much of a surprise they took out the stuff which they did.
