Yup, I heard you. But the above was a tongue-in-cheek remark on all those
companies who dub anime for TV--they often edit the show and then dub it,
running into some very unique problems later on, especially when considering
continuity. I was merely commenting on why companies don't dub a show first
and THEN edit it. Or at least plan the edits beforehand so you don't run
into any boo-boos later. But that would be too much work.
