Hey all, I recently found out that 4kids bought the translation rights to Naruto. This stinks I personally think, as they killed many anime with huge cuttings in my personal opinion. Naruto is to good to be cut. Whats your take on Naruto being translated and cut by 4kids?

That was just a hoax, check this out: http://www.animefringe.com/magazine/2004/05/special/03.php

However, I would be pissed if 4kids and Funimation pick it up. I somehow get the feeling and hope that Bandai is going to license it. They find pretty good voices for the cartoons, plus to me it would seem right if they did.

Oh I didn't know about that! I guess I was wrong. It said that Naruto would be named Nathan and Sasuke would be Sean. Naruto is now officially killed. :(

Edit: The url isn't the Anime New Network. So it's another hoax, but now I'm so confused. XD

Didn't this surface sometime around April Fools' Day?

In any case, now, as then, I offer a vehement NO THANKS.

My source was a friend who's brother is a fansubber, and his brother stated that in the fansubber world, news of Naruto being translated by 4kids was floating around. I also saw a few sites. o.O; If its true that it will be announced at that convention, well just have to pray it doesnt happen. I hope to got 4kids doesnt get it if they dont, until then, ill be checking legit anime info sites.

Edit: I bet that was a crappy April Fools joke.

I'm pretty sure 4kids isn't going to get this. They just barely got One piece and I'm pretty sure the other companies won't let them get another popular shonen anime as well.

If you had asked me a few months ago, I'd be really disappointed if 4Kids got Naruto. However, now, I wouldn't be so much. Granted, the dub would probably suck (not because the actors suck but because 4Kids directors aren't very good). However, I'm cautiously optimistic seeing as both Yu-Gi-Oh and Shaman King, 4Kids properties, are getting uncut releases. Ideally, a company like Bandai, Geneon, or even Funimation proper would be better than 4Kids getting it. But, if they do get it, at least an uncut release is likely.

Thankgod x.x;; I would have had to kill some people if they did get the translation rights. Im not looking forward to the 4kids dub of Tokyo Mew Mew. They have renamed it to Hollywood Mew Mew as a way to "Localise it" according to the president of 4kids x______x

Damnit, this is why, even though it is officially pirated stuff, I download anime that has been messed up, now, I will have to DL more one piece, and stock up on Naruto incase. Why, oh god why, do the creators of these fine animes let 4kids get the rights? Also, funimation is actually doing ok, they did great on Fruits Basket, hell they even let the people cuss in the dub, woo XD. But 4kid...:: sigh:: Dic too, I remember dic messed up Sailor Moon, a even greater anime uncut. Its sad how the creators are letting companys like 4kids chop up anime. I am now scared of next week..they better not announce they have the right >_<.

The japanese voices are good. I really like Naruto, and yeah, if 4kids gets it they will definatly cut it for TV, and that will most likely cut ALOT of the anime out destroying it for life. Basicly, Naruto isnt 4kids material.

Honesty, funimation would be better than 4kids, lately they havent been chopping up anime super bad. As I stated, they did good work on Fruits Basket. But then again, they may change the name of the anime lol. But anything is better than 4Kids. There name even smells like it lol. 4Kids, Naruto isnt like kiddy stuff. Muaha, thats why I like it.If they get it, im boycotting it lol. I do hope Bandai or ADV gets it, atleast they give anime justice. But even so...im on a semi ADV boycott for a few reasons.
