also, can you believe they were retarded enuff to rename the marines to navy. its NOT a mistranslation, they had to change EVERY marine ship flag , and rewrite NAVY on it. wtf!
and no more wining or boozing, its all juice. omfg, thats completely wrong
one of the things that absolutely killed me was how they destroyed the nami scene where she asks luffy for help. that was cruel, a master moving scene which was completely crapped into box to be burned
actual i must give credit to 4kids....
i actually watched the 4kids version first and i thought it was cute (luffy voice is annoying but i don't mind zoro's english voice)... then b/c of 4kids i couldn't be bother waiting for it to be on tv so i watched the jap version and thought WOW!!! so i really gotta thax 4kids.
beside it a business for 4kids so i guess there doing what they gotta in order to SAFELY draw in the youngins and get more money...
i don't care about american youngsters (if they prefer 4kids OP to the uncut edition that is)
4kids is ruled by people full of shit that want to feed little kids what they like, ie : shit.
really pathetic :(
I would like to say something to KROI...dude you are so right...I was telling my friends how they butchered that scene with NAMI and LUFFY. I was like dude....why is she hitting her arm....then when i found out the japanese version...I was tear jerked with emotions....*bawls like franky*. Dam you 4Kids hope you grow some 'tangerines' and let Nami be Nami, i can't even imagine how there gonna cover her up in the future.....XD
Just read the difference 4kids made on the first 2 episodes alone and now I'm scared.
well.. for the voices; Luffy' and Zoro's(Zolo dubbed) are by far the best, they suit their characters way more than the others. Along with Shanks, I like his voice, its funny. The covering of their clothes, that just plain fuckin retarded, kids in America now can see that shit in Bra commercials from Victoria Secret and shit, do that censor that? Hell nah, and with the internet being the way it is now, we can just google porn and boom, like 1k sites pop up. After all, they are just cartoons right? fictional drawn people.
I agree with both of you, when they screwed that scence... That alone said that it was just gonna get worse.
after watching the 4kids version of OP i will now either stay with the sub-english version OR only read the manga... my head hurts after watching 5 episode of it...
and do 4kids give a damn on what we think?!
heh, my head hurts after watching half of an episode of the 4kids dub
It ok tho everyone can relax... I read in recent news that 4kids are stopping there dubbing of one piece.
'4Kids Cancels One Piece Production (2006-12-06 11:06:38)
4Kids Marketing Director Roz Nowicki has confirmed that the company will not adapt additional episodes of One Piece. 4Kids has dubbed 104 episodes of the series into English, 78 of which have aired in the United States.'
as from http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/
so hopefully another company will pick up the production and give good, uncut subbing and dubbing that One Piece clearly deserves!
finally, POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!! SELF-CENSORSHIP PREVAILS!!!
