    Default Naruto: not licenced in USA?

    That's the most weird I learned recently: Naruto is one of the most popular manga ever, a lot of people have downloaded the fansub, and lot of people would like to see it on TV or licenced DVD to rent it. So, why hasn't it licenced to USA yet? It's kinda mysterious...

    Dreams can be when you're asleep, or when you're daydreaming, or chasing after something you want. There's nothing about them being fragile or about to disappear.

    It may already be licenced in the US, just not released. Don't worry...give it a little time... It's a major cash cow, so of course it'll be picked up. I'm willing to bet FunImation gets it...

    I've seen some of the officialy translated manga. Horrible, they changed the text, and names of the attacks (kage bunshin no jutsu was called 'art of the doppelganger *shudders*). I think I'll be reading the fantranslations for now.

    Is it just me or is the most annoying thing in anime people who license something and then take beyond forever just to release it. And its worse being in Australia because half the stuff I want has yet to be licensed in Australia >.<

    Damn! Why do they change so much the original product and make it worse? (the answer is well-known to all of us, I think...)

    I hope Naruto never gets licensed in America. English dubbing by the companies sucks terribly in th US. They always tend to leave out alot of things in the origonal Japanese versions. and the dialog in the Fansubs are far better.

    Yeap! Original japanese voiceover rules. The worst american voiceover I 've ever heard was on Pokemon: Brock sounds like a junior robot, Misty like a taliking doll and Ash like a 7-years old boy. Even the greek one was better! Btw, the worst greek one was on Dragonball Z and Runouni Kenshin TV. I guess we have to talk more about awful voiceovers on another thread, cause we'll be off topic...

    Default I'm waiting for answers...

    Let's get back to the topic now:
    does anyone from you know the reasons (at least, the possible ones) that Naruto is not licensed yet to the USA?

    Well maybe it is licenced but not release? I don't download Naruto, I watch it off XingKongWeiShi.

    So if anyone in the Asia-Pacific region can understand Chinese, the Naruto is on XingKong at 6:00pm, 8:00am and 1:00am. All you need is a satelite.

    Naruto came out recently-ish right? So perhaps they are still in negotiations about it's licencing?
    The only thing I love more than anime and manga is... budgerigars!

    The big reason that Naruto remains unlicensed is that EVERY dubbing company is trying to get a hold of it! Let us not forget that each episode is going to cost a lot of money to get a hold of from Japan.!
