There was a rumor floating around for a while that 4Kids was planning to buy the rights to Negima and redub it. (I heard this from a fellow Newgrounder several years ago; so far it's seemed bogus.)
If Negima is the same thing that I'm thinking of, that's rather bizarre.
I remember reading a manga volume of it. In one chapter, some girls were fighting over who 'got' the main character as a room mate or something, I don't know. And they were all in the changing rooms, so they decided "hey, let's have a breast size contest". And then they all compared breast sizes.
Then the main character made the main girls breasts grow and she won the competition.
That sort of thing may be the standard in Japanese kids comics, but I wouldn't expect to see it in anything kids orientated in America.
Maybe the cartoon is different. I don't know.
I just watched Ponyo. I thought it was great.
Very happiness inducing. Much like My Neighbour Totoro. Not quite as good as that, but still great.
The art was breathtaking, as is the usual for Miyazaki films. The English voice actors were great (as I watched it in English). Everything was good.
Not at all disappointing like that Howl's Moving Castle.
