Yes, I'm mad about FMA being liscensed.

All I can say is.. Thank god it wasn't 4Kids.

I mean, if it's like Fruit's Basket, and if it's on Adult Swim, what do have to worry about?

Look at Wolf's Rain, that show has *alot* of bad stuff, and it's comming over great. It has Kiba bitting into someones neck and blood spraying out (That solves the Izumi problem).

So yeah, it could of been better, but still much much worse.

But Wolf's Rain was Bandai, not funifuckingmation. I'm going to go cry now.

But still. If the target for Funi *is* Adult Swim, and they do it right.. I'm just saying that it's not going to be edited before pre production

Note: If it was taken by 4Kids, most likely, the fansubbers would'ave not stopped subbing it.

I don't have very many experiences with ANBU, but I do know that Anime-Keep is extremely strict about licensing. If it's licensed, it goes. They'd have yanked if it had been licensed to Michael Jackson.

You know, reading this made me feel a lot better =D (And no, I'm not being sarcastic)

Even though I despise Funimation, I will give them credit with what they did with Blue Gender. And it was shown on Adult Swim. Even though I didn't really watch Blue Gender on Adult Swim, I did manage to catch a few episodes and they didn't seem to cut it very badly. Lots of blood and swearing. So, there is some hope!! ^___^
zeeeee joebbgc___whore on May 11th, 2004 02:49 pm (UTC)
*cries for 6 years straight*

they're going to dbz treatment it though! the voice actors will be reused SO BADLY we'll go insane. al probably wont have an echo. the music openings will be changed to "YO YO YO IM AN ALCHEMIST, ROCK THE HOOD 'CAUSE I MAKE GOLD AND BRASS *boom boom booooo boom boom*"
they'll change the word alchemy to MAGIC CHANGING SUBSTANCE POWER, winry will probably sound like bulma and scar will be piccolo's voice. "*rasp* roar i hate making changing substance power-ers"

i hope this was another screw up like one piece 'cause i swear to god, if i have to listen to rap playing during full metal alchemist and fanBOYS running around screaming OMG ROY LIGHTS STUFF ON FIRE AND HE'S THE COOOOOOLEST! I WANNA BE JUST LIKE ROYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

whyyyyyy in the middddddddddddle. uh fuck, homunculus will now be called artificial ressurected soul people. *cries*

but i do know why they're horrible dubbers!

FUNimation Productions, Ltd.
P.O. Box 48610
Fort Worth, TX 76148-0610

THEY'RE FROM TEXAS (no offense, i'm a easterner)

oh, and right nasty letters to them and ask if they're going to change the music, how they are changing voices, and all that jazz. IM SO FUCKING PISSED RIGHT NOW!
She and her Catwednesday_tea on May 11th, 2004 03:05 pm (UTC)
Have you looked at ANY of their recent releases?

Probably not. DBZ was YEARS AND YEARS AGO, when anime was NOT popular, and they thought that they had to change things.

Well, things have changed. Funi is, actually, gasp, not a bad company. They are not horrible dubbers anymore. Hell, who says it's even GOING on Toonami? Could very well be (and this is what I'm guessing on) Adult Swim. No biggie.

And, gee. You could always watch the subs!

im not as much pissed that funimation has liscensed it, its that they liscened it at the worst part. i havent seen the whole seris and this is gonna bug me in my sleep about all thats happening. should of liscenced it after the fansubs were done

Sonchou please keep subbing!
Aimeefiredawn on May 11th, 2004 03:30 pm (UTC)
Sonchou dropped it already.
sarahdemonsquirrel on May 11th, 2004 03:51 pm (UTC)
my only input is, hope for adult swim. adult swim can secure that we are safe and that are fears wont become... true. it's toonami that we need to feel uneasy about... ie: Detective Conan/Case Closed. aimed for younger audiences, more changes. adult swim only needs slight language [cursing] changes and certain violent scenes [what ive noticed in trigun has only ben teh gun-pointed-to-mouth scenes] and all this is cut only for air, not the origional dvds.
zeeeee joebbgc___whore on May 11th, 2004 04:19 pm (UTC)
but i don't like a lot of the fans who watch adult swim. yes, i don't like funimation, but it's the FANS that watch too much cable anime that will ruin the series.

do you think they'll have intelligent convo's like we do on lj? noooooo, they're too busy writing OMG I LOVE FMA 'CAUSE ADULT SWIM ROX MY SOCKS! THEY COULD SHOW A MAN EATING SHIT AND I'D THINK IT'S BRILLIANT!

they won't even care about how intense the plot of fma is.
kikari on May 11th, 2004 05:09 pm (UTC)
I have a big problem with that because I live in an area where..there are a LOT of asian-influenced kids. I was really surprised because one day I walked into my teacher's room, as usual, to hang out and watch anime during lunch [my teach is a big fan of Anime/Manga]. We were having a good time until I heard this RUMBLE - and I am NOT exaggerating. It was f-ing scary. Turns out that some kid told his friends that we were watching Naruto in our room, and some kids from their group told their OTHER friends and their friends told OTHER friends, etc. etc. Now I eat my lunch with a bunch of little freshmen that are around 4'11" screaming about how cool Sasuke is and how much they want to marry Kakashi. :| I'm not sure why but that sure blows a fuse in my head. It just sounds weird..and for FMA to gain the same attention is probably going to shock me even more. But you know..we'll see how this goes. And I'll shutup now :D;;

I'm not even a member here, but this comment just bothered me intensely.

What is wrong with getting your anime over cable TV? It is, in fact, CHEAPER than buying the DVDs. I don't know about you, but I'll tape my Wolf's Rain and save my 20$ for a nice artbook, or something.

I also think it's highly ironic that you insult these people's writing style, when you yourself don't type in the most correct form of English. Have you heard of capitalization? That's what you're supposed do at the beginning of each sentence.

While I agree with you that extreme fangirling and bad typing is annoying, I don't think you have the right to generalize about the future fans. You never know, you might get some really intelligent people joing the fan community. They might, in fact, have new/different insights about the plot than you do.

*huffs* Really, I hate it when people decide to dislike something just because it's "mainstream." "OMG LIEK NO!!!11!! EVRBODY LIEKS TIHS BAND NOW I HAVE TO H8 IT!!!"

Well, I'm only sorry that people you don't know and you are not required to talk to can negatively influence your enjoyment of the series.
sarahdemonsquirrel on May 11th, 2004 07:37 pm (UTC)
meh, i disagree on ur opinion of cable anime/adult swim watchers. and i thought hard about why i disagree, and the only reason i can come up with is, i have never met anyone like that b4. honestly. not that i deny their existance or anything, i just havn't met anyone like that, of the adult swim obsession type ::shrugs::

i agree, certain fans can be the problem, and everyone has their complaints, but eh... i dunno, that stuff i like to avoid, or my head goes kaboom.
