Holy. ****.

The Hollywood Reporter (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3if44ebfb31be090b578cf16fc7080704f) reported that Disney XD will air the next series in the Naruto franchise. Too bad not many homes receive this channel but contact your local provider for more information. Anyway, Disney XD has aired some PG-V movies in the past so the edits might not be plentyful. Too bad most people aren't going to read that last sentence, just read the title, and over-react. Maybe they'll pick up One Piece too.

Notes:
• This is to start airing on Oct. 28 with 4 episodes on the premiere. The 4 episodes have yet to be confirmed though so that is something to look forward to.
• It will air weekly on Wednesdays.
• Disney Channel isn't Disney XD. They're two different channels so don't get confused.

Pardon me but what in the bloody hell....?
Actually I half don't mind this. I'm having mixed emotions.

And yes I did read that last sentence, and I had to delete my comment towards Viz I was just about to make. :p

I had to do a double take on this. This is unexpected! I was thinking it probably won't be on tv and be on DVD only. Dang, this is pretty good news. I really don't care if Disney edit some stuff out from the anime. As long they don't take out arcs like 4Kids did with One Piece. Make it consistent. But I have a feeling it won't get edited too much. Which it is good. Well looking forward to see if Disney can make Shippuuden a success on tv. ^_^

You buried your own grave CN. That is what you get! Now you are eating your own words...lol. Open mouth and insert foot.

Well, this is unexpected. I'd trust Disney over CN any day, though, so I think it'll turn out well good for Naruto fans.

I'm glad that the American youth of today will get to know about Shippuden. It's not the best show in the world, but I think it's much better than the stuff they show on CN. Adult Swim doesn't count. >.>

On the other hand, they are totally going to ruin Hidan! D:<

Man, I never thought about that. They really are going ruin Hidan.
That's a shame too. Such a epic scene where Shikamaru's all like "I am your god" or whatever.

Haha, I think that would happen too. Hidan's dirty mouth is what everyone loves about him. D:

Anyways, don't think that would affect me that much either since I don't have Disney XD and also I prefer the sub version.

I think everyone is overreacting just a tad. It hasn't come on yet and people are already complaining about it. x.x Well in other forums and message boards I came across. It is total insanity! I have Disney XD because I have digital cable. If you have digital cable you are most likely have Disney XD. I am going to watch it when I get a chance to. Unlike some people who are already criticizing it, I am not. I am going to watch it and see it for myself. I have a feeling it isn't going to get edited a lot. Only a little bit. We shall see. Maybe Disney changed for the better...

And these are the same people who complained that Shippuuden needed to be on tv. And now they are complaining that it is in the wrong channel! They should be happy that it is coming on tv! Dang!

That channel is only available on digital cable? :(
I think i'mma have to call time warner to see what they can hook me up with. As embarrassing as that's going to be, nineteen year old male wanting disney XD.

I've seen some of the subbed version of shippuden, and it's kinda of dissapointing. It's very low-brow seeing as an episode is thrown together in a week. I'd still be interested in seeing it, though. I miss watching it on Toonami back in the day.

Lucy Lu
September 11th, 2009, 05:43 PM
Yeah it is available digital cable and maybe satellite. I am not so sure. Yeah anyone who have basic cable won't have it. D: I feel sorry for everyone who are looking forward of watching it on tv, but they don't have the channel. ;; That isn't fair, but I guess that is where the DVDs come in. Or try calling your cable provider to get the channel.

Some people are giving it a chance while others are complaining and being mad about it. Sheesh...let the madness end! Til at least you watched the first few episodes. Then you can complain all you like. Those people in those message boards and forums need to calm down! I am glad everyone is calm here. ^_^

I do miss watching Naruto back in Toonami too. And I usually will watch the sub version anyway. But I would love to watch the dub version. ^^

My Op and I have been wondering...whys did they stop showing it on cartoonnetwork? I remember cartoon network still showed the naruto movie *the 3rds one* a few weeks ago...

Lucy Lu
September 11th, 2009, 05:51 PM
I think maybe CN still have the rights to air the movie. That is what I been hearing. I would like to know why they stopped showing Naruto though. The last episode they aired was 209. Well it is their loss. They had Shippuuden in their grasp, but Disney XD took it away from them. That is what they get. I have a feeling it will do well in Disney XD. Probably not like Naruto in CN, but it will do.

I think it was because at that time Toonami started to die out and they had no other place to fit it really, which is kind of stupid because I'm sure we all could think of a many of places to show it on their schedule.

They did start showing it late at night during the weekdays after a certain point.

Lucy Lu

Bad marketing in their part. I do agree with you on that. There were other places they could have aired the other episodes of Naruto. Even if Toonami died. I guess they wanted to put in their reality tv in there as quickly as possible. I swear...they will be hurting once Shippuuden hit the airwaves at the end of October. I have a feeling that Disney XD will be a new home for other anime.

Wow. Disney airing ..naruto? That's shocking. O_O;. Naruto has a lot of swearing in it so would they censor it? -.-;. Also my friend told me Disney bought Marvel like last week..for making a marvel movie and also bought a designer or developer of Halo 3?


EDIT: Just googled and it said disney bought Marvel for 4Billion Dollars(Link here (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/8230504.stm)) and disney also bought Hired co-creator of Halo 3 Seropian. o.o

We've seen what England did, and we've seen what 4Kids would do, first, marvel, now NARUTO!?

Disney showed Digimon when it still had jetix, it also dubbed Savers (though I certainly agree that toy could have done better with "Citramon"), but if disney changes one thing, ONE MAJOR THING, I would wish 4Kids had it instead, first, disney takes Marvel, now they have taken Naruto, what is next on their hit list, Nintendo, sega, the US ARMY!?

Complain, complain, complain...

This is good news. Maybe not directly towards Naruto fans, but more towards getting a bigger fanbase for Naruto and possibly making anime a tiny bit more mainstream again. (the last maybe a bit too optimistic, though.)

They can cut it up all they want, but it won't matter. This airing is intended to get a new audience. Current Naruto/Naruto Shippuden fans already have UNCUT, LEGAL, and FREE streaming of both Naruto and Naruto Shippuden... And don't forget the Simulcast. Not very many series actually have a Simulcast. Plus there are the uncut DVD's.

But you know what? You Naruto/Naruto Shippuden fans don't even have to PAY to legally watch uncut Naruto/Naruto Shippuden. They have been handed to you on a silver platter.

So quit your complaining. This is not like 4Kids. When 4Kids dubbed One Piece there were no uncut DVD's and there was no UNCUT streaming. There was no streaming at all.

Lastly, it's airing on Wednesday night, right? Guess what that's competing with? CN Real. The dreaded block on Cartoon Network that we all want gone. It's going to be competing with NARUTO Shippuden.

Again, there is no reason to complain!

And? It's not like Naruto Shippûden will be aired in enough households that have Nielsen Boxes to beat whatever Cartoon Network has.

why would Disney wanna show anime?

Because Naruto Shippûden is a cartoon aimed at the same demographic that Disney XD is targeting.

Still, the majority recognizes how horrible CN Real is already.

Either way Disney XD's ratings will increase at that time.

You may be right. Heh, when I first heard about that, I'm like, "oh great they're going to change Marvel a lot." Part of the reason is how many of the fairytales and stories Disney get their stories from they changed the plot and personality of characters a lot, even though I actually like the movies. XD; However, now I think about it, maybe Disney won't do too much harm on Marvel, so going to wait and see a couple of Marvel shows/movies they come up with and then make my judgment there. However, yeah that movie and also the Naruto Shippuden one also will bring in more male audience. Have fun watching when it comes! :)

I forgot about Sai's jokes. XD; I admit, not sure too much about Disney XD and how much editing that channel does to shows overseas, but probably Sai's jokes and the blood/gore won't be edited that much. I still think Hidan's swearing will be censored quite a bit though for some odd reason. XD;

At first it took me back a little. But then I remembered this: The precursor to Disney XD was Toon Disney, Toon Disney used to air the Jetix block. Jetix showed a number of anime shows like Shinzo, Beyblade, Mon Colle Knights, and others that I can't think of off the top of my head. They also marketed the Miyazaki films in the U..S., so anime isn't out of their realm.

Of course, I'm not a fan of Naruto, but I'm hoping they someday acquire the rights for Little Snow Fairy Sugar and broadcast that during their morning/early afternoon programming block :P

Me too. This was very surprising. Seems like Disney is going on one of their "Letz bai erp erything agian!" campaign. Now, it seems they are targeting us geeks. Feel sorry for all of the fans who don't know about the Uncut or streaming on the web. Censorship is going to up the ass. Though, I do agree that it won't be 4kid's level of fail.

It's great that Shippuden's getting dubbed at all, in my opinion.

Well, seeing as Viz is doing the dubbing, it won't be that major. XD is 6-14, so they could probably make it either PG or 14. CN did it outside of Adult Swim, so XD doing might not be too surprising. Besides, Viz can release an uncut DVD like they did for the original Naruto.

But what's for sure is that nothing is on this series' fate for now, so don't complain just yet.(At least not until the episodes air. Then you can choose to complain or not)

September 17th, 2009, 01:39 PM
Ahahah.. this topic's replies almost mirror the thread on Janime about this thing. XD Honestly, Disney getting ahold of Shippuden isn't a big deal at all.. VIZ is still dubbing it, and the editing will be about the same amount that it had on CN. The only huge change will probably be the channel change.. aside from that. Eh.

Why does this really matter to us? I mean, most of us watch the subs anyway and we're acting as if we speak for the other people who will watch this. If they're not big enough fans to watch the subs then chances are they really won't care or know about the censorship. The people who really get into it will then proceed to use the internet to research or learn more and then watch subs as well, then they will read the manga. Well, that's my rant on censorship and US dubs.

Chances are it won't be that bad, the fillers already ruined Shippuden anyway.

Viz owns the show , not Disney. Most likely ,it's probably geared towards older audiences ,so it's going to be on Saturday nights ,and be left uncut.

Bay Alexison
September 17th, 2009, 03:30 PM
I know Viz owns the show. I'm just saying that people seem to be complaining Disney getting Marvel and that the Disney XD channel will cut Naruto without those two things been shown yet. I should have mentioned that then. :x And yes, I'm probably contradicting myself with the eariler posts I did in this thread. XD;

Also, even though I don't have cable no more and not actually sure how Disney XD's schedule is like, you're probably right, Bigdog.
