I wonder how badly they'll have to butcher Mononoke to get it on at the 7:30 time slot.

That's no lie, I'm thinking of several scenes just off the top of my head that'd need to be removed for Mononoke to be safe to be aired on CN in the first place...it'll actually be kinda interesting to see how they'll handle it honestly....

Same goes for Nausicaa. Excellent movie, but it would be a shame for them to remove some of the blood and fighting. Also, does the Disney dub have any swearing? Just wondering...I've only seen it subbed.

But, minor quabbles aside, I'm thrilled that Miyazaki's movies will be on CN (and at a popular time slot too). Smile This will definitely expose some kids out there to the stuff they're missing in the animation world--stuff outside the crap that Disney and Dreamworks have been churning out these days.

I've seen Mononoke but not Nausicaa so I can't really speak for it but with the way that Naruto has been treated on toonami, and the fact that they allowed a few episodes of the uncut DBZ on at 7:30, I would say that chances are fair that it will get fair treatment in the editing department, though I would have liked to have better seen something like Mononoke on Adult Swim. Could have given it a sort of bit of class in my opinion. Not to say that Adult Swim doesnt have class, but it does seem to cater more to the uncouth, more crass end of the spectrum.

Well theres a rumor even said n the Toonami Wiki,that Due to miyazaki's policy not to have his films altered,they'll be shown Uncut... Ye-ah.. I'll believe that when I see it

It's going to air with a TV-14 V. I think it'll be okay.

Though I'd be interested to see the uproar on the part of the movies' rights holders if Cartoon Network tried, though. Laughing

Acording to the ANN encyclopedia, Princess Mononoke is rated for teens and up. Slap a TV-14 sticker on it and it'll be alright, that's what they did for Batman.

They already aired Spirited Away on CN once, and it was uncut from what I saw.

When Spritied Away (e-dub) aired on TCM on my cable system it was out of synch so much so that I couldn't bear watching it then. While the Japanese repeat later was just fine. Maybe I wasn't the only one with a problem that night. But then maybe TCM is going to be airring Stuido Ghibli regularly? ( I hope )

Yeah but Spirited Away didn't have the violence that Princess Mononoke had. You've got limbs coming off, decapitation via crazy arrow shot, Ashitaka getting shot through the chest,(not a spoiler happens near the beginning) gods dying left and right, San sucking blood out of one of the wolfs. It's pretty much the most violent Miyazaki movie I've seen but the only ones I've seen have been Kiki's Delivery Service, PM, and Spirited Away so I guess I don't have much to go on.

Cos that's not really Miyazaki.


It's a pity, I wish they'd show Takahata's stuff too. Maybe it's too "real" for kids. Or perhaps a more understandable reason is that maybe it's better appreciated if you know something about the Japanese culture. Still, even if his stuff might not have that immediate shine that Miyazaki's stuff tends to have, it's sad that his stuff really gets pushed aside sometimes....
