One piece anime as mature as the manga?
I just finished the one piece manga and i was wondering if the fights in the anime are as mature as the fights in the manga, like if somebody gets injured and bleeds in the manga do they bleed the same or sustain the same injury in the anime?
and i thought this topic would be speaking about some profound/thoughtful things... ^^"
if, for you, maturity is defined by the amount of blood you can see, then i guess there is quite a lot in the anime too (for what i have seen at least, and of course unless you watch the dubbed versions)
I had the very same feeling, Shautieh What's so mature about blood ? But in One Piece general..there isn't much deaths, right ? Maybe in anime - because we don't know what happens to people from fillers
The FCC, and most censorship and rating organizations define "maturity" by the level of gore and sexuality. Kind of funny they'd teach us something through their actions and labels that, some serious irony here, they tell us we only think because the rest of the media teaches us that.
Blah. Anyway. The anime doesn't seem to be very censored down from what I can tell, just don't watch it in English if you're looking for the same qualities.
Most of the Shonen Jump have been cencored down a small tidbit in some sections but pretty much One Piece anime series is pretty much exactly the same amount of violence as the manga counterpart.
Although some parts such as Zeff eating his leg in the manga are changed to an anchor chain catching on to his leg and ripping it apart in the anime. Oda commented on this in his SBS questions saying, "Of coarse this scene had to be toned down, I'm obviously not going to show an 8 year old about someone eating his own leg to survive."
Well that one is kinda obvious, but yeah certain parts had to be changed, but for the most part I think that was actually the only change I remember in terms of violence.
There are however some scenes in Naruto and Bleach that were also toned down (or heavily toned down) in violence in manga/anime comparison but they are pretty much still the same overall feeling so it's the same for One Piece.
Oh yes as for blood...of coarse there is blood unless it is changed to american sweat.
I'm starting to think I missed the memo on television being for younger audiences. Not that I don't believe that, or haven't seen a lot of proof on the subject; but when was it learned that as long as it was on paper, in stead of a screen, then exposure to children was less...likely to be a problem.
the sweat was still ok, the juice and lolipop is what really pissed me off about the 4kids one, and the thing they did to smoker, which makes him look ridiculous.
