Here's some more footage: https://www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=​2ODtGnRNogw

The names have sure been localized:
Ban Yamano -> Van Yamano
Ami Kawamura -> Amy Cohen
Kazuya Aoshima -> Kaz Walker
Hanzou Gouda -> Hanz Gordon
Ryuu Daikouji -> Gabe Lewis
Yuusuke Uzaki -> Damon Osgood
Jin Kaidou -> Justin Kaido
Yoshimitsu Kaidou -> Cillian Kaido

Other edits include making the guns glow and adding laser sounds when shot. Based on the Nicktoons character profile pic, they also thinned out Gabe's lips. Those are pretty understandable, though. It does miff me that we're in 2014 and the names need to be that changed.

The gun censoring is minimal compared to what happened in Yu-Gi-Oh.

It would be kind of impossible to have LBX without any guns, haha.

When I first glanced over the title of this article on my iPhone, I could've sworn it said "Little Busters EX Coming to NickToons." I must be more tired than I thought.

And, Disney aside, from a kids' cable channel believing that all importable kids' anime is Game anime, to license the toy franchise in the US.

(Pokemon was fifteen years ago, I feel old. Sad )

Kinda late to party there. They're just airing the first series after the trilogy is over and done with in Japan

Edits are disappointing, but not surprising. No way in hell they would air a series with kids playing with live ammunition guns trying to kill people in America. Wonder how they'll handle the assassination arc.

I already imported all the model kits but I'm wondering how much worse the American kits will be. These kinda kids toys are generally made with cheaper plastic or are smaller/less detailed than the Japanese originals. Power Rangers VS Super Sentai is a good example

I'm a little disappointed that the soundtrack changed.

This isn't the first time Little Battlers eXperience has been dubbed in english.

The show has aired before on Animax Asia in english dub and uncensored.

As long as they don't change any dolls into journals or make edits to certain foods, I'm happy...

Hopefully this means we are getting the games... (What's really important about this property..., at least IMO)
