Ok I have a question



What the bloody hell is Envy? I don't know if it is a boy or girl. I always thought it impersonated too many people to remember its gender or true form, but the long hair form it uses. Is it male or female? It sounds male but it looks female. I can't rely on the voice since Al and Ed are both played by women. Does anyone know?

This comes after me seeing a Lust/Envy DJ and they were she males.

Can I just say how much much I love Armstrong!!!!!! He has always been my fav FMA character.

If that's the only company then why are curses taken out of animes.

Every company does it. They make the shows for 14 years olds and younger.

You're thinking of the stuff aired on Cartoon Network. And *that* is entirely Cartoon Network's fault. Try buying the DVD releases sometimes, you'll get plenty of curses there...

Maaaaybe there wasn't actually that much cursing in the original Japanese? It happens. What anime, and what company?

I never said there was....

That's because Japanese people don't actually HAVE curse words in their language. They have words that are frequently TRANSLATED as being curse words, but the words they use are NOWHERE NEAR as strong as American curse words are.

hey I still got slapped for those words. I guess my dad is just strict.

No, what I mean is that the Japanese DON'T have swear words in their language like we do. They have rough language that usually represent fighting words, but they don't really have SWEAR words. They're too polite.

I know what you mean but to me they were always bad words that I got in trouble for using.

So wait, let me get this straight, you ARE Japanese? *is now confused*

Ohhhhhhhh, okay okay. I see.

Though, why bother worrying about having swear words in English if you understand what the words mean in Japanese? I'm confused because you said they're "removing" "swear" words from anime, but that doesn't sound right to me at all.

(And in some cases, they're actually ADDING swear words to translations. XD For the manga Yami no Matsuei/Descendants of Darkness, in the English translation, they put the f word in several times where it wouldn't have been otherwise XD)

It still feels like they are sensoring it.
