Yeah man I didn't think it would ever happen because Viz couldn't get out of their deal with Disney XD but apparently Viz was tired of Disney XD editing Naruto Shippuden so badly so they pulled out of the contract and sold the rights to Adult Swim. Well actually this wont take affect until 4/1/2012 but hey, better than it being hacked up on Disney XD forever right?

I know this sounds unlikely, even I thought so but I read it on Wikipedia so it must be true.

Awesome huh? No more hack dub on Disney XD soon. We'll get to see Naruto the way it was meant to be presented for adults.

It's a good thing to because I read about some of the edits they were going to do to the current story arc and I don't want to spoil them for anyone who hasn't seen the show yet because they're plot relevant but if you're curious you can read them below.


This is a joke, read the date it was posted on.

Its not that everyone hates you Dubs, its just that you call CN a bunch of anime haters because they got rid of most of their anime when the audience they had to watch those shows are older and watching other things. It's there network, they can do what they want, even if it hurts them in the long run.

Pain-Konan
04-03-2011, 03:22 PM

This to the max. It's their choice what they want to do with the network, not yours. If they want to air more anime, that's their choice. They want to air less anime, that's their choice.

Straw Hat
04-05-2011, 11:19 PM
But what if CN's impending death means the rebirth of anime in the form of an Anime Network?

What then?

`:|

Why would it?

Why would Turner get rid of Cartoon Network and proceed to buy enough anime to fill a 24/7 channel? They wouldn't own any of that content themselves and it would cost them lots of money that they don't have to spend airing reruns of their own shows of which they have many.

If Cartoon Network was taken off the air it would probably be replaced by a 24/7 Adult Swim channel since Adult Swim's weekday block (not Saturday) is the most successful part of the channel at this time. Then instead of Cartoon Network you'd have the All Family Guy, American Dad, King of the Hill, Robot Chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force channel, all day, every day. I don't know about you but I think they play those shows enough as it is.

If it meant AS would air anime all day on Saturday, it'd be worth it.

No it wouldn't because [adult swim] would lose so much money from that, if they didn't stop that, they'd go bankrupt, and you wouldn't even get to see anime on [as] anymore. Also you have to consider they don't have enough anime to do that, and not enough money to even get that amount.

But why don't reruns count? They're still anime and considering those reruns are some of the best anime ever made (Bebop, FLCL and GitS). I especially don't see why they don't count.

Pain-Konan
04-08-2011, 02:24 PM
Yeah, reruns are still anime. Plus those shows are still airing for a reason. Why do you think [adult swim] hasn't dropped InuYasha, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig, FLCL (Fooly Cooly), The Big O (Season 2 only unfortunately. The rights to this show can't expire due to Cartoon Network co-producing the second season.), and Fullmetal Alchemist? They've had those shows for many years, and they've finished multiple times.

But there's no sense at all to that suggestion.

Toonami without the shows that made it good is nothing worth fighting to get back on the air.

And no don't even think for a second they would get those shows back. Some can't be licensed in the US anymore and the rest are of little to no value to Turner so they wont buy them again. They could run CN and AS on reruns of just what they have now if they had to (thankfully they don't do that) but they're not going to throw all that away and rebuy a ton of shows they don't even have the merchandising rights to.

No common sense to be found in that.

Toonami's been gone over 2 years. Isn't it time to move on?

Some can't move on. It took me nearly two years to get over it as well, but I still wish it would come back someday (There is hope due to TOM4's last words "Until we meet again, stay gold."), but not now. Not when it wouldn't be as great as it could.

Also yes, many of those shows they can't get anymore. Plus some would do well. Sailor Moon, that show was very successful here when it first appeared on TV. However the animation by today's standards looks very dated, and as such it wouldn't do well. It probably wouldn't even pull in 1/4 of the ratings it used to back when it was on Toonami.

Plus for other shows, they've been out on DVD in their entirity for many, many years. No point in airing a show almost everyone has on DVD that wasn't as successful as something say like Cowboy Bebop.

And if CN were to disappear, then you will have to say good by to Adult Swim, since both are owned by the same company and air on the same channel. The owners will believe that since CN didn't do so well, adult swim must be doing the same. Adult swim is part of CN. You cannot have adult swim with out CN.

As for Dubs4life growing up, he does need to. Things are different now. Anime isn't as popular as it used to be when it comes to TV and mainstream culture, and doesn't pull in anywhere near the amount of ratings it used to. If Cartoon Network aired something like say School Rumble now, it would pull in very poor ratings, and be cancelled within weeks due to it making CN lose money. Heck, even something like Rave Master they aired years ago wouldn't pull in even 1/4 of the ratings it did when it ran on Toonami.

Honestly Dubs4Life, you are getting on my last nerves.
I say it it is better to have Naruto Shippuden on Disney XD with edits than to have no Naruto Shippuden on any channel at all.
At least I'm able to get the DVD's and legal downloads from the iTunes store.
There are edits for different reasons; a majority of them, I can understand.
I just don't want the edits to mess with the original storyline.
As long as the it is intact, I won't complain much about the edits.
You are about the same age as me and it is time to mature a least a bit.
Besides, I find illegal downloads to be "tainted fruit" rather than "forbidden fruit."
If you want to download in an illegal manner, it's your funeral; not mine.

1.) You mean to say there aren't legal ways to obtain those for free. But come on 1.99 an episode is super cheap though cost per episode would be lower if you bought the box sets when they come every few months.

2.) Get a job anyway. Even a part-time job would do. Get a job at your college. There's probably something you can do for a few bucks here and there.

3.) The economy isn't that bad anymore we're on the upswing and fast-food places and grocery stores are hiring all the time. I doubt you've even looked.

4.) If you want to focus on college that's your decision and it's not a bad one and I'm sure we all respect that decision but it doesn't give you the right to steal. You're not entitled to be able to watch uncut dubbed Naruto. I don't know why you would think you are. Nobody is forcing you to pirate it. You always have the choice of not watching it if the only way you can do so right now is piracy. And I think that's the beef people have with your lack of logic here. YOU HAVE A CHOICE you simply choose to pirate it because it's the easiest thing for you and requires no effort or money.

Kind of not cool to Viz though. They pay a lot to give Naruto a dub on top of what they pay to license it but your actions tell them that you don't think their work is worth a dime to you. That's not cool dude. Why should they keep producing an uncut dub if people aren't going to buy it? Seems like a waste of money. I'm glad they do it because some people actually do buy it but IMO people who aren't willing to watch it legally shouldn't be allowed to watch it at all. That seems plenty fair.

1. Not to mention that we get a better deal when it comes to buying anime than the Japanese do. Want to know how much they pay for anime? $40-$60 for 3-4 episode SETS with one audio track.

For that same price we get 13-26 episodes with two audio tracks (About 90% of the time). The amount of money it costs to buy all of Naruto Shippuden here is way less than it does to buy it in Japan.

Also, they don't get streaming usually. They may have a lot of anime on TV, but getting to own it or stream it is a nightmare there. I'm still wondering how people over there have the money to buy all of One Piece, Bleach, Naruto Shippuden, and many other long running shows.

There's no stopping you. We're not getting you to stop as hey, what can we do to stop you? We just don't like how you justify pirating the series. Is stealing justified if you don't have the money for the box set, and you just walk into a store and run off with it? Definitely not. There are some times when it's justified (Which falls into the grey area), but what you're doing is not, especially since it has nothing to do with life or death.

*puts out hand*

Give me money then.

That's what I thought.

`:|

Asking for hand outs from people and not just TV networks now?

I earn my money. Working, or selling stuff I previously owned when I can't work. Haven't bought a DVD in while because I don't have the money for it. So why should I give you money? Earn it yourself. There's plenty of part time jobs you could find that would fit your schedule. You could work part of one day a week and have enough to buy something. And if you choose not to take that option I completely understand that but it doesn't give you the right to steal.

So how about the next time you have the urge to stream or download the latest uncut dub episodes from a DVD release of anything how about you go down to a store and try to walk out with the DVD. It's exactly the same thing so why not do it? Right, because you'd have the common sense not to do that. Stealing is still stealing if you don't get caught and your actions are just as damaging to the industry you supposedly love.

You say you're a Naruto fan but wont watch it legally proving you aren't much of a Naruto fan at all. Actions speak louder than words.

You should stop stealing Naruto episodes. It's kinda a dick move.

Oh yeah he goes on various websites and downloads or streams the uncut dub episodes because he doesn't like watching the edited dub on DXD nor the uncut Japanese version on Viz's website and refuses to buy the uncut dub on iTunes or DVD.

Ignoring all legal options to steal. It's the very definition of supporting the show he say he loves.`:P

I don't see why they wouldn't be. They're still paying for a legal copy of the series it's just not the US release. So I would say they're screwing over the US anime industry but at least the Naruto franchise in Japan.

I personally think it's silly for people to import Japanese DVDs particularly without subs unless the dub release is censored and there is legal way to obtain the uncut version by the US distributor. When US distributors don't offer the original uncut version in any capacity the only legal way to obtain it is to get a foreign release of the show be that Japanese imports or maybe imports from another country that had a legal release.

If someone imported Naruto DVDs from Japan when the uncut release here is not only just as good but much more affordable then I'd think they're throwing their money away. Even if they hate the dub (and I know some people do but I disagree with them) it has the Japanese version on it as well. If they happen to hate the subtitle track because they feel it's "toned down" because of they assume "fansubs are "more correct" that's also silly but because Japanese releases often don't have subtitles then they could even turn off the subs and watch it in raw Japanese on the DVD.

If it comes down to video quality, I can understand that because Japan sometimes gets higher quality video for certain shows and they happen to get more Blu-Ray releases of older anime than we do so that's a valid reason to import but most other reasons just seem like a waste of money.

I know there are some people who import Japanese DVDs just to spite FUNimation, Viz, Bandai, etc. Which I think it's pretty lame of them but as long as they support a legal release of the show I see no reason not to consider them fans, just not fans of the US anime industry and not helping it in the slightest.

So yeah, you're being a "good fan" as long as you support a legal release of the show and there are an increasing number of ways to do that

For Naruto in particular

1) Stream the simulcast (free with ads or for a small fee on Crunchyroll with internet)
2) Stream previous Japanese audio episodes on Crunchyroll , Hulu/VizAnime (free with ads with internet)
3) Stream Japanese audio episodes of the first series on Netflix (requires subscription to Netflix streaming)
4) Rent DVDs on Netflix or through another service
5) Watch the edited dub on DXD (paying for cable or satalyte)
6) Buy uncut episodes on iTunes (fastest legal way to get uncut dubbed eps)
7) Buy uncut episodes on DVD (more economical that #4)
8) Buy another region's legal home video release (usually costs the most for the least amount of content)

8 ways to do it and 3 of them are at no extra cost if you're already paying for internet or some kind of television signal that gets DXD. Bare in mind when Naruto was on Toonami the only way to watch the uncut dub legally was to buy the DVDs because when Naruto began streaming it was just the Toonami cut. So we've come a heck of a long way for Naruto since then.

In comparison here's One Piece

1) Stream the simulcast on FUNimation's website / Hulu / VizAnime
2) Stream previous dubbed or subbed episodes (dubbed episodes only last a limited time)
3) Rent the DVDs on Netflix or through another service
4) VOD episodes on FUNimation's VOD (I forget if this costs extra on top of buying VOD service in general)
5) Buy the uncut DVDs
6) Buy another region's legal home video release

6 ways and 2 of them are completely free with an internet connection while the other might cost extra with VOD or might be free, I forget exactly

Biggest difference is a lack of TV broadcast other than VOD but streaming the dub for free more than makes up for that even if they take down dub episodes after a while. Wish I could support it by watching a TV broadcast though. But back when I could support the dub by watching the TV broadcast the only way to watch the show uncut legally was importing. I did end up watching most of the 4Kids dub since it was on Toonami and I watched pretty much everything on Toonami whether it was good or not. That and because it was like a horrible train wreck, you know you shouldn't look but you just can't help looking at it.

Life would be just grand for dubs if every anime got the same treatment as Bleach. He prefers that business model because it's most convenient for him. It'd be nice if more anime broadcasted uncensored here but Adult Swim can't rescue them all, they don't have the space or the money for that.

Well what I meant was they import the Japanese manga volumes. Though they probably would import the Japanese DVD's. They just feel the American companies ruin every title they get their hands on with "poor translations", "unecessary edits", and more things. He wants VIZ Media for example to be stripped of One Piece for changing "Zoro" to "Zolo".

Still you're right, even though they're supporting the Japanese industry and not the North American one if that's the region they live in, they're still a fan.
