    Remember when Disney got into anime back in the day? Remember how they censored the hell out of Sailor Moon? Yeah...just remember back then.

    Re: Shippuuden dub to air on Disney

    Found out that their targeting demographic is for 6-14 year olds. 6 year olds?! OK, parents, would you want your kids to be exposed to crazy psychopaths that blow people/buildings up? Especially in some "sand" town that is somehow represented by Arabs? I don't think little kids nor their overprotective parents would judge openly for this.
    And even though he is featured rather late in the series, you want your kids to be exposed to Hidan?! A man that stabs himself and loves it? He is choking up blood. We have men that smoke cigarettes.
    Also, most people do not have Disney XD (you have to buy IO or something to watch it). Why put it on one of the least watched channels of all time? Hell, even Sci-Fy (which was notoriously known for airing dubbed "mature" anime) would be a better fit than the "too kiddy" demographic Disney XD holds.

    Apparently somebody hasn't been paying attention. He finishes like every one of his sentences with 'ttebayo. He does it like twice an episode (maybe more depending on how much screentime he has that week).

    Re: Shippuuden dub to air on Disney

    Parts of this thread seem to fault Disney for being incapable of handling Naruto prematurely. Some people here also seem to hold skepticism toward or grudges against Disney for unclear reasons or shortcomings that are small, fractal mistakes in millions of triumphs that this company has endured.

    That Walt Disney struck a merging deal with Marvel, a company very left-field of Disney's core soft-character market, means Disney is beyond another big contender in entertainment media business but remains so incredibly stable, aggressive, and adaptive it will absorb brand images going against its foundations to strengthen, grow, and evolve.

    Perhaps some of you stereotype Disney into a children's demographic, even if by the target audience age group, despite the fact that many of it's classic animations have mature themes, albeit to youngsters they're subtle enough to consider the cartoons natural works of adults that serve a family-oriented audience.

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Toy Story, Wall-e, all of those films possess, though to some refutable degree, culturally significant and socially reflective mature themes in entertaining art form. But we aren't talking about feature length films when you speak of Shippuuden's series, this show is like snack food for the eyes.

    How Disney works with Shippuuden should arguably be worth my gamble as there may exist some fiber or useful weight in the snack food, though much of the meaning may already be vague to grown audiences, especially if its themes inferrably or speculatively exist. One issue I see however, is that Viz is the dubber of USA's recent Naruto series and that probably means Disney will guide no part of the voice acting for Shippuuden.

    Shippuuden's voice would otherwise feel in good hands, seeing as Disney holds commendable history with Japanese animation company, Studio Ghibli and it's renowned director, Hayao Miyazaki. With applaudable technical skill, Disney manages the translation of Miyazaki's work to our theatres and arguably preserves well the emotion of Japanese anime films outside of their native tongue.

    The only thing that we can do is to wait and see what happens. If Disney fucks up then don't watch it , not watching it will make ratings drop and have the show pull hopefully someone will pick it up. (hopefully adult swim)

    Shippuuden and Disney? What the hell. Sora fillers will suck even more than they did in the original (lolworthy voice acting, massive censore and who knows what else). And I thought that was impossible.

    Re: Shippuuden dub to air on Disney

    Considering they're gonna dub shippuden, I don't see where the problem is.

    It's not like Shippuden is an amazing animation and deserves prizes. At least it gets more exposure on Disney XD (What a silly name).

    So why not?
    Besides you're all gonna still watch it subbed .

    well....I'm cool with it.....I dont really liked the translated voices anyhow.....they sound kinda annoying.....that believe it crap from the first part....was extremly annoying....most of us well keep our naruto fix as we are doing it now......

    1st - Manga ,2nd - the subbed episodes that come out weekly that to me are the best .....the voices of all the characters feel better........so translated episodes will be for the masses that have no idea about the manga or the episodes from Japan

    Hmm... Maybe I wasn't (when you hear something a lot that you don't mind, you don't really notice it as much), but still my problem was more with "believe it" and not "dattebayo," which whenever I catch notice of it sounds rather adorable.

    Anyway, I agree with MythSoul. Most of the people I know who really care about the dubbed episodes are those who only watch those and don't care about the original Japanese. The people who watched the first American dub series will get something roughly on the same level of content, and to them, it won't be that big of a deal. For those who already watch the Japanese version, you're still probably going to watch the Japanese version, and if you know people who think little of the American dub, introduce them to the Japanese version.

    Also, I don't know if they still air it, but around Halloween, Disney would always show Hocus Pocus and in that movie, Billy the zombie gets his head knocked off and he keeps talking. So, we might get to see Hidan's talking head in the pit, but the dub will probably cut out part of the actual beheading, which wouldn't be terrible.

    Re: Shippuuden dub to air on Disney

    mmh, disney to air shippuuden, i can see why our american fanbase is mortified by the idea. i also watched: the lion king, jungle book, aladin and all the others in my childhood. but i don't think it's fair to condemn the idea only because it's disney.

    clearly that company is evolving like someone already said in this thread.
    after the corny fairy tales movies of the nineties stopped selling, disney moved on to computer animated movies
    (i believe toy story and antz was made by disney)
    they acquired pixar(also computer animation)

    and now recently they moved into the American comic industry by purchasing marvel comics.

    clearly the announced airing of shippuuden on their channel is part of a bigger plan.
    and i wouldn't write them of just yet based on the silly image we all have of them

    (mainly because of the lion king and such titles, although granted i thought their more recent work Narnia blew as hell also, but that was clearly an cheap attempt to copy harry potters success, at which they failed miserably)

    perhaps this collaboration will work out better than any of you expected, i mean there does seem to be potential and good synergy between the two(viz and disney) to elevate naruto to a new heights in America.

    at least you guys get naruto on cable(or used to get it n e way, as i understand disney is a pay per view channel)
    over here in the Netherlands and most of the other European country's the fans are doomed to have to roam the internet for their weekly fix.....sigh, how unfair the world is...sob

    lol nah just kidding

    Re: Shippuuden dub to air on Disney

    ok disney buying shipuuden has its pros and cons. the pros is that naruto will be even more popular than it is now with marketing and all kind of disney money making idea.The cons is that there will be a lot censored, for example when killer bee did a number on sasuke chest, when pain nuclear attack konoha. all the great moments of gore will cease to exist in the disney dub. but still i'm really not that concern about it, since we all have options here. we can watch the disney dub which will strip us down to our innocence or the sub where theres a little bit of gore and profanity, either way we have choices.
