I'm definetely watching this. Never seen the Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo anime, and I'd like to see how ShoPro (now Viz media) handled the dub of Naruto

I watched it earlier this morning around 11:00 am they didn't seem to have the dub itself but the raw product ruff, the same be said for bobobob(What ever), but IGPX is crazy and good looking. The fall season for toonami is looking good for those toonami fans. Also they showed One Piece upcoming eps and Zatchbell eps, Tom even Joked about luffy being his friend Awww that was cute". However since witnessing naruto on TV for the first time the animation looks foggy and pale comparing to the other series like One Piece, Zatchbell and IGPx who's animation Looks Bright and shinny, Naruto looks yuk yuk blah on TV, I just hope the animation doesn't make it fall flat with kids.

I've seen Bobobo-bo in my anime club at school and it's much weirder than Excel Saga.

From what I saw of the video quality of Naruto, Cartoon Network recieved a low quality transfer like that of a fansub. Maybe when it airs the video quality will be much sharper.

Eh, wasn't really expecting the Naruto dub yet. The clips actually used raw audio, but no talking, just some grunts and groans. Naruto normally has a faded look durring the early battles, that's just the style they use, it's a foging effect.

Funny how this is the Summer preview, yet they're calling the Toonami shows the new Fall line-up.

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo... WTF Fighting with your hair. Laughing I thought guys that wear dress and swimsuits were a no no. I guess CN really has changed over the years. Atleast I'm sure I will get a good laugh.

I guess we won't really hear voices until a couple of weeks before Naruto hits the air. My guess is that they are still casting the parts. I hope, come September, they get as far as later part of the exams.

I mean if 4Kids could air Ultimate muscle and show kid muscle going drag and pissing himself all the time why can't Toonami?

I'm not usually one to be picky about dubs & all, but I'm already unsure about Naruto's. Might just be a personal quirk, but the fanboy pronounciation of Naruto's name as "nuh-ROOOOOOOOOO-do" really gets on my nerves, and hearing it used on this preview thingy...yeah. I hope that this time, it's just a fault of Toonami's people though (seeing as it was the programming block's narrator that said it), and that they didn't pick it up from any dialogue in the episodes they've received. Confused

Thats exactly how "Naruto" is supposed to be pronounced >_>

I always hear the fanboys pronounce it - "Nah-Roo-Toe" <_<

Heh, that's exactly what I thought when a friend of mine called me saying he saw a commerical for "NarUUUUUUUtoe" and something about him going to "Leaf School." He thought it was funny (being a real big fan of the series himself and actually knowing how to say the names).

If this initial mispronuciation is a sign of things to come, then the dub will probably be on the level of Gundam SEED or Inu Yasha, decent overall but with a few things to nitpick at from the more zealous fans about name pronuncuations or translations (you can count on me being one of them Razz).

At this point though, I could care less. If I start complaining, people will call me a "dub hater" because those people will end up "LUVING teH NarUUUTOe voicES11!!" or whatever. But until I actually hear it, I'll reserve my criticism.

Oh well, as long as the DVD has a Japanese langauge option, I'll be cool...

Oooh starts in about fifteen minutes for me. I wonder if they'll show Naruto's sexy-no-jutsu....?(j/k, j/k! I's have to lock my brother up, he's pretty bent on seeing the series.)

My guess is that because this is on Toonami, the shots of him doing Sexy-no-jutsu will be edited out.

Yeah I was just joking. Right now I'm sitting with the laptop in front of the TV. I saw a bit of the preview this morning, but I didn't see Bo-bo-bo.
