It's funny because it's true, sadly. Very Happy

Is Spice and Wolf anything like Wolf and Spice? The titles sounds nearly the same, but..ya know, gotta be picky. Honestly, if you follow the kanji, there's no reason not to call it Wolf and Spice, and it's not like it makes a huge difference in vocal aesthetic.

Also, if that's to poke fun at those who never buy anything and download fansubs only, they're not going to worrying over watching Naruto on YouTube. Cute comic, but barely accurate; the never-buy crowd knows how to work DDL's and torrents.

Ha ha!! Too funny. It's sad, though, that this is so true.

Finally, no more violence hopefully. I really liked the realism of the comic.

I swear some dub haters are crazy. Since options are personal, I won't say anything about that, but going overboard is another area all together.

Thank for not having using violence or gore in this comic this week Robin, this is the type of comic I enjoy reading.

Err... perhaps because that's the official English tittle of the show as written in the ending credit sequence?

I like that guy's shirt: I <3 2D BooBs

It's just too sad to know that people like these do exist.

Honestly, it really doesn't matter what the Japanese use. Why you might ask, they're the creators? Because they still confuse American grammar and diction CONSTANTLY. R's and L's still get them all the time, even in official published works that have quality checkers. Kallen from Code Geass? You can't honestly tell me it was meant to be Kallen, it was Karen, but of course, even after forced English for all their school years, they still mess up.

It's Oh My Goddess! not Ah! My Goddess; how many times must I repeat this? We should just go with what's commonly used by fans and that's Oh My Goddess!

Wrong, part of the never-buy crowd are complete idiots who don't know a lick of HTTP downloads, torrents, ftps, IRC, etc. Visit the videos that have been taken down on crunchyroll to get an accurate depiction of these idiots in action.

Actually here is an example of the Naruto section that has a notice that says:
"Naruto:
This Series is Licensed! Please support the series and purchase the DVD!
Licensed by VIZ Media
DO NOT UPLOAD!"

Some of the comments in reply to this are the following,
"what the hell this licensed too, why hell you removed been here a year. Now its gone, WOW! Everyone try **********.Com they have all the naruto episodes"

"only [expletive] stupid animes are still on here >< everybody have to go search elsewhere... Anyway, I think *******.com is the best for watching naruto right now..."

"homaygod....its almost a month since i watched naruto video here...i thought i can watch more better anime video in this site..but now its pissing me off at 1st i thought that there was a technical problem here but im wrong...there is a f***ng licensed to"

"what the f*ck is wrong with this site?? this is one of my favorire sites before, but now, crunchy roll is useless. I can't watch both Naruto and Bleach because of that stupid "LICENSED"!!"

ect, ect, ect, there are literally hundreds of comments like these. I think this comic depicted the youtube naruto idiot lightly, it should have been an angry swarm of idiots to depict the "blind leading the blind" type of mentality they have.

It's hilarious because it's true.

As a Naruto fan, I laughed so hard, I do watch it on TV (even if it's in the fillers and past the arc I wanted to see) though partially feel for that guy's plight. While not the same... YouTube keeps taking down Naruto the Abridged Series... Why must they do it... especially since they included that disclaimer... YouTube is mess up... and just for fun... Heh heh... Moo.

Its sad though because of how true it is, some people would be lost without youtube, I tried it once and the quality sucks so bad.I If I created something I would be disgusted at the fact it was watched on youtube( aside from the free part), putting all that time and money to make something good only to have it put on a tiny screen with crappy resolution, analog cable is ten times better than that, kids these days have no desire for quality. This also reminded me of a article by the bandai visual boss who started off saying he doesn't want to discuss watching anime on youtube, and goes on to say their works are so expense because they give fans the quality they want, oh the irony.
