Naruto is on Cartoon Network's Toonami line up which is geared toward kids so some editing is practically inevitable. They did the same to Yu Yu Hakusho when that show was on Toonami.

Um, if it's geared for kids, then shouldn't they show kids anime?

I guess I don't really get this strange american of gearing PG and PG-13 stuff for kids. If the show is geared for kids the should select shows that have apropriate material for kids. If they don't think nosebleeds as an indication of arousal is appropriate for children then maybe they shouldn't show shows that have nosebleeds as an indication of arousal.

In anycase, that marked the last time I'm gonna view Naruto on CN. I briefly chatted on a Naruto Message Board several months back and they all saw this coming. I was just hoping for one thing, to keep the Japanese intact for the Jutsu. I mean, Ninpou, Gamaguchi Shibari sounds so much better than Ninja Arts, Toad Mouth Enclosure. I realize that's not how they are hearing it, but I believe that more of the Japanese culture should be incorporated into the show, not just the visuals.

On the other hand, if the nosebleeds *were* from sexual arousal perhaps they simply edited them out for cultural comprehension. ("Huh, why's that character's nose bleeding? I don't get it") This'd be a bit like american editors of english books being convinced americans will absolutely never be able to comprehend "flat" = "apartment" or "lift" = "elevator". I never understood and always resented this practice, but those in the business take it for granted and find it harmless.


WAY, way, way, offffff topic, so far off topic, it'd be an insult to tangents to call it a tangent. More like a hairpin turn:

I'm such a nerd that when I first read Nick Hornby's About A Boy I got very confused when one of the characters was wearning a Kurt Corbain t-shirt and talking about how she loved him. You see, the novel began in August and the main character in the very beginning of my American edition refers to the television show "NYPD Blue". NYPD Blue premiered in Sept. of 1993. Kurt Corbain died in spring of 1994. So clearly, Kurt Corbain would have been dead at the time of the novel... as the novel progressed in became obvious it began in August of 1993 and ended in the summer of 1994 (there was a new years and Kurt Corbain's suicide was mentioned toward the end). But the reference to "NYPD Blue" kept throwing me off. Well, obviously the american editors simply replaced the original text's mention of an English TV show with its american counterpart.

I'm not sure why they assume that I, an american reader, will have no problem comprehending the utterly baffling English school systems, be familiar the English rock music scene, know what snogs and nappies and "sick" as a noun are, but be utterly dumbfounded when an English character living in London watches an English television show. In fact having him watch an American show thouroughly threw me.

I thought I was....

Anyway, I'd choose every other guy character who has the "brooding" disposition and always has a "chip on his shoulder". They're usually the cools ones. * _ *
