Ok, I made plans in my schedule, to watch the premiere of Naruto on Toonami. Here is my review.

Pros: Well first of all, it's the same Naruto we all know and love from the Fan-subs. Nothing more or less the same story. Toonami showed the first two episodes in conjunction with One Piece's style of an hour of its own show. I was amazed to see that most of the show was left intact. Naruto's Sexy no Jutsu was left with the clouds and no bathing suits were added. Also the person who speaks for Naruto (The guy who did the little boy's voice from that Time Patrol or whatever cartoon its called on CN) managed to keep Naruto's voice intact during both episodes.

Cons: Now this is where my gripes really begin. First of all, minimal blood. Oh yes, they show blood in the anime but drops of it fling from the mouths of the characters? Of course not. I was even driven to the point of tearing up, when they didn't show blood flying from the Third's nose when Naruto performed the Sexy no Jutsu on him. So what does this mean? No copious amounts of blood for you my friend.

Onto the voices. While Naruto's, The Third's, Konahamaru, and Ebisu's voices were alright, Hyuuga Hinata and Iruka's voices irked the hell out of me. Hinata's voice sounded a little to high and whiny for my taste while Iruka's voice is just plain annoying. Why? I'll give you an example:

Iruka: "MEE-ZOO-KIII!!!" (Translation: "Mizuki!"

I kid you not. Most of the Ninja in the show stress out the Japanese pronounciations in names so much as in the words, Hokage, Mizuki, and others, that it detracted from the overall experience. Also about the words. I cringed (literally) when Iruka slaughtered the saying of "Genin." This was how he said it:

Iruka: "I've tried to get him to understand the hard path to becoming a ninja, but he's been beaming ever since he became a GUH-NEEN."

GUH-NEEN? Last time I checked, it was GAY-NEEN. I guess my teachers from Japan have been teaching us the wrong pronounciation for Hiragana or something. However I applauded when Ebisu called himself a JO-NEEN, which is the right way to say it. But the worst thing is when they pronounced Konohamaru's name like this: KO-NO-HAM-URU. The Maru part is seperate from the first part of the name so why did they say it all together in a jumble of American English? The world may never know.

My last gripes concern about the Jutsu names and Opening Themes. They say stuff like Clone Jutsu or Multi-Clone Jutsu. So no Baykugan or Sharingan for you. Also they took out my Wind ending theme.

Overall: So to conclude this, I felt that it was a good attempt that could have been made better with a little more polish. With the edits made in the show, my excitement has dulled a little, but from what I saw tonight, I can tell Naruto will be left intact for the most part. Just don't ask me about the Hand-Stabbing, or Haku spewing a waterfall of blood. It's not gonna happen.

Some saw it as a continuation of the... "Self Pleasuring" scene of Shinji's.

The actual quote (If I remember right) is "Kimochi waruii", which seems more of a statement rather than a question of uncertainty.

What the FUCK is with Kauru how come he just became so important
Maybe to heal Shinji's sanity if Rei spoke the crap out of him.

It's "Kaworu".

And as it can be seen, the only person who actually got close to Shinji is Kaworu.

...

And yeah. End of Evangelion is one mind-rape medium with high potential. XD

I liked Vision of Escaflowne. I suggest that one for good story and violence with swords.

Well, since I never saw the original uncut versions, I thought the first two episodes on toonami were pretty good.

You might like Escaflowne. I only saw part of the movie, but I could see it had fantasy, swords, and bloody violence. It probably has a good plot.

But I will agree on the others, but adding Mizuki in as well, since it just seemed to... fit. As for the crappy ones, yes, Hinata sucked, but I found Iruka to be a bit more generic. Sakura needed to sound more girly (same with Ino)... and poor Shikamaru. His one line was enought to make me cry.

...Personally, I found it better than my subs for episodes 50-76. Summoning no Jutsu cannot possibly equal 'Psychic Power.' I think they'll keep Sharingan and Byakugan. I mean, they kept Hokage, which that in itself is good enough for me. And they got rid of the Closing Theme, Wind, as well. This will also mean that we won't be getting Viva Rock, Ima Made Nando Mo, and the rest. Unfortunately.

They're going to have to do something about that hand-stabbing, I tell ya. It'll probably stay, though. Remember waaay back in DBZ, when Ginyu punched a whole in his own chest? My point exactly. The fountain of blood will probably be replaced be a trickle of blood, which will be very odd in its own right. As for everything else, I am quite pleased by this dub. It pays to be positive sometimes.

I happen to be VERY pleased with the Naruto dub. :) They kept Hokage! :D The previews said "Head Ninja" and I almost started crying. "Third Head Ninja!" >_< I reeaally liek Sandaime's voice, it's very wise and er... old. o_O

Everyone else's voice is acceptable. I heard Kakashi's voice in the previews and it sounds great. Not as mysterious or laid back as the Japanese voice, but very good either way. Still haven't heard anything from Sasuke.. everyone else's voice good. :) I can't wait for everyone else's voices, Neji, Lee, Gaara. O_O

The nosebleeds were edited out, but I guess it was for teh better. Silly dub-only watchers wouldn't get the nosebleed joke. Their expression is still priceless though. :D I almost started crying when Naruto said "Catra". :'( But then Konohamaru pwned Naruto and I was happy again. :)

Things I can ignore:
Geh-nin.
Ho-Kage
UchEE-ha
No blood spouts
"Beast" instead of "Monster". I liek monster better though.

Things that get on my nerves:
Eh.. nothing really. :) Yaaaay Naruto. :D

It's not on Newgrounds, but there's a link to the AAHC in my sig if you're interested. On a side note, I have a warning for everyone shopping for anime online: DiscountAnimeDVD.com is no longer a reliable site. My brother tried to buy me a Robotech box set for my birthday and they cancelled the order without warning because they claimed the method he used to purchase the item is the same method used by South-Asian, European, and African internet theft rings... I guess a lot of South-Asian crime lords use Visa cards on their website.

Naruto's voice would have been better played by the person who did Yahiko's voice in Kenshin.

The voice they used just wasn't what I imagined while reading the manga.

Yes, but Sasuke dodges those ice needles. The ones that are in his neck are indeed metallic. He gets it from saving Naruto.
