I remamber back in an old fourm, I use to complian about people whining over the dub about how terrible it was and maze of fear hit me when I think otakus are going against this country.
Now aside that seemsly racist view, I come to the point when I see how screwed up the dub is.
That's rigth, Oda's masterpiece work is just a piece of trash in America yet 4kids makes America look bad. Why do One Piece deserve this? We get toys that are crummy, we get an anime done badly by 4kids as they spent there time skipping and marging episode like crazy without caring about the ratings.
One Piece as we all know was created by Eiichiro Oda, he fills it with inspiration and his heart in it, it's sad to see it unpopluar and hated here, it sad to see the anime twisted by 4kids' selfish bussiness while toys are made poorly and games with weird graphics while games are filled with 4kids blog. Why does One Piece deserve the horrible experiance here?
One Piece hardly have any storng fanbase here while people likes Naruto and spits on One Piece for the "wierd artstyle". One Piece is storng in Japan and it should be storng here too but because of 4kids selfish desire to dub the series and not Funimation who can do a better job. Here One Piece is viewed as a joke, its so unpoplaur the uncut DVD is cancelled.
What is One Piece? It's a story filled with:
Clever plot twist
Unique story events
Yet One Piece deserve to be repected and taken with care, One Piece does not deserve all buthering and corruperation that 4kids/mattel/bandai is putting in.
This is why I perfer to read a manga because Viz is the olny compeny in USA to treat One Piece with respect.
