[edit - If you're here about Naruto, go here.]



I am truely shocked.

I was hoping someone would get this sooner or later.

As a fan of Baki, I am setting high expectations.

I hope this is the series, and not the OVA.

I checked where the link pointed to, and it was the OVA.

Please be the series. Sad

It was emant to link to the TV series, I've fixed that. Since the OAV was already licensed & released by CPM, it is generally assumed that FUNimation's license is for the TV series...

Thats what I believed, but since ANN linked to the OVA series, I was a bit worried.

Thanks for clearing that up. Very Happy

This is my first post, my first visit to the site, my last post, and my last visit to this web-site.

Why i am here today is to lay a complaint, i know i speak for thousands of dedicated fans. But why are we fans? why do we LOVE Naruto? Why do we download the once free fan-subs every week and why do we stay dedicated? Because Naruto was the 1st original, no limit anime in a long time! It had everything, an excellent story, great animation and most of all, violent fight scenes... However, this will all be gone very soon and Naruto will be NO MORE !!! I say this because under its new license the entire series is going to be destroyed! No more violence, no more original japanese names (which also greatly added to Naruto).

I am in no way against licensing, but changing the names and making it less violent just for the sake of children who can bearly even understand what is going on in the series is just pointless. Why change a name? Why change the story? It was created originally because the creators knew that it had the potential to become possibly one of the greatest series' to date. Know this is all gone. Naruto is now, to me, officially dead. I will NEVER watch one of the licensed episodes, simply because im against the destruction of a great anime.

I hope you money hungry sadists at 4kids enjoy taking away something that thousands of fans so greatly loved.

You took something original, something without social limits (like the violence you are know going to get rid of) and what are you turning it into? ill tell you what? An animated version of the teletubbies! "Ello Nathan... we go fight fight now yes?" "yes yes !! we go slap bad people!" "noo.. slappin bad, very naughty. lets go hug them instead".

Thanks alot... for nothing, you bunch of communist pigs.

I'd just like the manga to be re-published myself, along with the rest of Raijin's line-up. *sigh*

I completely agree with Dissapointed fan!

and even if they didn't cut in it...
I would still hate the f*ckers who Licensed Naruto... o sorry; NATHAN, becouse I live in Holland and there is NOOO WAY I can see the show... And becoused it will be licensed, I can't download the free fan-subs anymore Anime cry

so please: Let it be a joke!

It's a prank. ANN never posted this information, it was only made to look like they did. See here.

Now that this is actually starting to get people fired up (and seriously, how gullible can you be to not even notice the article isn't posted on the ANN server?) maybe Chris should take action, this is obviously becoming out of hand.

It seems that Hate-nathan and Dissapointed fan seem to be the same person perhaps? Anyway it is quite obvious to tell if it was a joke or not. There was no ad, and if you had a skin, anything you clicked on would have your skin again. Also look at the "discuss" link. When you click it it takes you to the Grappler Baki thread. Two people make these hate filled posts when they weren't even smart enough to see that it was a joke. Rolling Eyes
