    well I thought it was going to suck and it was actually cool...
    If they really had a desire to live, they would've been more aware of how easy it is to die.

    Re: Naruto on Toonami

    What I really don't understand is why the "modern anti-violence standards" are suddenly becoming a big deal - with the advent of the internet, little kids (my brothers, for example) can find all the violence they want, regardless of web filters. It's as though people are becoming more and more paranoid (and trying to cuddle their children into a fluffy sphere of "this-is-not-your-world-so-when-you-get-into-real-life-you'll-die-of-shock"). Not useful.

    Meh - I can't wait for the chuunin trials. If the VA's can impress me in that, any early weakness they may have had is totally forgiven.

    So they can't edit something like the Looney Toons because it's too old?

    No, because it's already visibly in the U.S.'s subculture, so parents don't complain about it as much. It's like trying to convert from the english to metric measuring system: people openly think the second is better, but can't get rid of the first.

    I hear that the subs are better but I still say Naruto instantly for free is better than anything. No matter how many changes are made in how it's told, it's still an awesome story and that shines through.
