Why do I get the idea that this will be very bad?

But still, if they translate it they'll crap it up. What are they gonna do to the intro music?!
Though I do find this funny...
According to a recent poll published in Animage magazine, the Naruto series is in the top 20 favorite anime series. It is position number 10 to be exact, and only appeared once in six categories as opposed to Full Metal Alchemist (licensed by FUNimation at E3 Convention) that claimed top spot in each of the six categories: Favorite Anime Series, Favorite Episode, Favorite Male Character, Favorite Female Character, Favorite Theme Song, Favorite Seiyuu.
This is a Japanese magazine, and thus, it represents the Japanese people's opinion. Suprisingly Naruto is not as popular in Japan as it is in North America and abroad. In my opinion, it should be number 1!
The top 10 are as follows:
01. Full Metal Alchemist
02. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
03. Get Backers
04. Saiyuki Reload
05. Uchuu no Stellvia
07. D.C. Da Capo
08. Prince of Tennis
09. Peace Maker Kurogane
Suck on that naruto fans!

Did you ever wonder why?
Well, to be honest it's probably due to the fact that the characters almost constantly use language that sissies over hear would go nuts if their kids heard it. But still, I have to agree that FMA is better.

Gotta love that "Prince of Tennis", which is the shiznit.

What language? All I saw on the subscripts were an occasional stupid, fool, shit, f**k.

There's also asshole, bastard, bitch, mother-fucker, moron and so on. Now, many of these words don't seem like much, but if you watch the same anime here as the age group that naruto targets in Japan, they'd never say things like that. You're also faced with the problem of Sexy no jutsu, and they'd be screwed over once Jiraiya is introduced. What else? Oh yeah, the blood.

Another thing bets the dust due to the northarimains need to have everything in eng.
It is to bad, i have not seen this one but i know the fealing. They allways seem to find the worst posable poleop to do the voices and take out any good song or traslet till it is no loger a good one. Also you know there are porblems when the fansubs are better then the dub traslations....

Exactly. I think I might kill myself if my little cousin starts watching this. Because that's how you can be sure they've taken a good thing and pissed all over it to sell it in North America. The bastards.

Yes. Nobody likes Gundam. That's why there are alternate universes, movies, figures, OVA's, series and live action movies. Because nobody watches Gundam.
But seriously though, it's kinda funny looking at that chart and not seeing my personal fave, Trigun on there. Even more disheartening is that new anime POT (yes, funny hearing little kids say that and not mean grass), which is really about very pretty boys playing a very pretty sport.
And I seriously thought Bebop would be up there, as would Ghost in the Shell and EVA, considering their cult following and awesome animation

Bebop pwns all shiz.
