    I suppose we're all guilty of being predjudice though. I personally have only seen 10 minutes of naruto, and i won't watch it or read it. However i would never watch an english dub by 4kids and say an anime was shit common sense and what not.
    Exactly, dude. Different strokes for different folks, which should be the prevalant thought to someone reading any opinion piece. Personally, I couldn't stomach the animated Naruto until the dub came out. Just hearing the characters speak English was enough for me to get hooked.

    And sorry, but I don't think NGE is required viewing for anyone. It's a great series, but not that worthy of people's adoration.

    Its quite true that 4Kids has anally skewered OP, but Way back when, when I saw the first eps of OP (in japanese) I recall thinking how horrible the japanese dubbing (yes its considered dubbing even if its the original since cartoons dont talk). Like the dog at the beginng WHAT WAS THAT!!! I thought it was like an old lady moaning... (The dubbing got better over the course of the series) but the fact remains OP is a great series if you give it chance, and people give up on it too quickly because of the animation style, or the 4Kids crapfest.

    Well, since Jyuu locked the extra thread, I'll reply to that last post.

    Some animes aren't meant to be translated because of word jokes and cultural references. One Piece is one of them. Example: Zoro's attacks. 'nuff said.

    if you follow animes from the beginning you get used to the voice actors.
    so when you watch anime translated (i get pretty frustrated) it's not the same anymore.

    Yeah, I find it weird that you're blaming Republicans for censorship when Tipper Gore had a huge hand in it in the early ninties, late eighties... whenever the hell it was.

    And Liberals run the FOX channel on non cable, and the one on cable is the "conservative" one that you mention.

    And most Republicans will tell you that a good dose of violence is healthy, but I thought it was the peace loving hippies of the liberal party that you'd side with... Methinks you need to do more research as to whose positions belong to whom. (Only the far, far, far, right get scary when it comes to things that might demean religion, like Harry Potter *rolls eyes* But whatever. Don't group the whole party into your views.)

As for the animation? It's GREAT. The art is childish; it's cartoony, simple, wacky, etc, but the ANIMATION is first-class. The way the characters move, their voices, the effects, pacing isn't half as bad as DBZ. A fight can begin and end in one episode and the original can leave you laughing, crying and falling out of your chair from the sheer weirdness in less than five minutes.

    Ah, props! Major amounts of props, I wanted to print out what you wrote to give to one of my friends who absolutely refuses to watch it... But I'll get her one of these days... mwahahaha....

    I love your tag too, about those moments that you mentioned that will be forever engrained in the mind, your tag is definately one of those moments.

    4kids version is so censored its hilarious. they make it super clean, super nonreligious and as nonviolent as possible. watch japanese anime or download the manga cuz the american anime is utter crap.
