Making Naruto a Quality Translated Anime sign now

Sadly, Naruto has been licensed by ShoPro Entertainment/ VIZ. This is bad in more ways than one, but instead of trying to fight this, we can at least try to convince ShoPro Entertainment/ VIZ to translate Naruto correctly.

No substituting American words when a direct translation can be made. Take Kage Bunshin no Jutsu for example, a direct translation would be "shadow replication" or "shadow clone", this would be preferred over the current translation found in the Manga by VIZ, which is doppelganger. Not only does it confuse the reader/viewer about what the technique does, but it also doesn't even come close to the original name of the ability. The names of abilities and attacks should stay as true as they possibly can to their original form, both for the sake of the reader/viewer and so that the people who watch the fan subs will actually buy your product. If you do it right the first time and your sales will rocket, if its one thing anime lovers hate, its bad translations.

Another problem is the editing out of blood, perversion, and swearing. Generally the blood and swearing is there for a reason. Its there one to make the viewer/reader more aware of just what is going on and to show what kind of person they really are. One example for Naruto is when Tsunade is protecting Naruto from Orochimaru, and she gets all cut up, you see her look at her hand and freak out because she has a severe fear of blood. It would make no sense if she had a perfectly clean hand because the blood was edited out.

Most anime is for more mature audiences, Naruto is no different. Since the anime is meant for a more mature audience, don't edit it for little children. Keep anime as true to its original form as possible. Don't edit it for parents who won't even purchase it for their kids. You should retain as much of the original as possible in order to provide true anime fans, your real customers, with the best possible quality anime.

Simply, aim for Adult Swim, not Fox Kids.
