    Fixed that for ya. If there's anything that makes my ears bleed, it's bad dubs, you know, like all of them? 4Kids anyone?

    The argument like this happen in comics forums everyday. lol
    about Naruto, One piece and Bleach, or which Gold Saint is more powerful in Saint Seiya, Gemini Saga or Virgo Shaka.

    I haven't actually seen any of the movies.

    I have read the 1, 2, and 1.5 mangas though.

    Gotta' check out those movies some time...

    4Kids was total shit. It's not even weeabo stuff, they'll literally censor the anime to hell and cut out entire arcs because it contains something they don't like, only to find out later it was actually important, so then they have to edit more episodes to fit the important info in.
    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DubInducedPlotHole

    Then there's this.
    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Bowdlerise/AnimeAndManga
    This article on tvtropes is split into "4Kids" and "other" for a reason.

    Oh, and their censorship of anything japanese.


    Not to mention that "believe it!" was something added during the dub to cover up Naruto's weird habit of saying random shit at the end of a sentence (a semi-common verbal tic in japan, it seems).

    etc.

    Yes because I'm sure Pokemon was such an amazing show without 4Kids ruining it.

    Yeah the source material is totally so much better without the 4Kids inconsistencies.

    Real talk it's fucking Pokemon.

    Ugh, I read those changes that 4Kids made, yeah, they're pretty bad. In fact, they stepped over the line into the realm of insanity.

    4Kids can't translate anime worth crap. Their dubbing abilities suck, they often overly censor something that doesn't need to be censored. Rice balls aren't jelly donuts. Heaven forbid that American children learn about onigiri.

    Ever watch their One Piece dub? Sanji sounds like someone who had a lobotomy. Naruto? He can't even pronounce the name "Sasuke" right. And the "Believe it!" comes from datte ba yo, which doesn't really translate, but more adding emphasis to a sentence.

    4Kids ruins perfectly good anime. Okay, I'll agree with you on Pokemon, but One Piece or DBZ, neither needed to be ruined by such a shoddy company. Glad they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. :lol:

    So the consensus is... 4Kids is 4Nobody.

    Perhaps it's better 4Gotten.

    Because those are shining examples of quality anime?

    Like I understand that 4Kids does a lousy localization job but it's not like they were converting masterpieces. You don't watch One Piece or Dragon Ball Z for the deep story and complex character. You watch it to see goofy characters bust a nut screaming and punch each other through mountains.

    No, they're not shining examples per se, but they really should have asked a good company to do the translation, or maybe hire real actors, but I digress. I watch One Piece because the characters are crazy and goofy. I read the changes they made....*shudder* I felt a part of me die a bit.

    From Yu-Gi-Oh:
    That's just ridiculous. Honestly I don't really know if the source material was any good (good chance it was not), but still, that's just idiotic localizing.

    I remember Disney wanting to edit Princess Mononoke to fit a PG rating, but Studio Ghibli send an authentic katana to their headquarters and wrote in English on a note, "No Cuts". Since then none of the anime localized through them has been censored.

    And I'm glad 4Kids filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy.

    Well it's ridiculous but it's not like the show was ruined. I remember that episode as a kid I don't think it would be any more redeeming uncut.

    It's idiotic localization but I don't find the product to be of quality enough itself to really give a shit.

    In all fairness I have woken up on many occasions to Beyblades playing on the TV and that is some of the worst shit I've seen.

    It's almost as bad as the 3D animated Garfield Show.
