I HATE THE TERM 'JAPANIMATION'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

anyway, ::shuder at three hours of dbz,:: i like dbz,
but i'm not as obsessed as others, (like say my middle
school freind) and ninja scroll doesn't really count
as mainstream unless you buy an 'americanized'
(dubbed, eidted, and sluaghtered) version, because
ninja scroll acually shows some brief nudity (big
deal) and that sort of thing is viewed as unfit for
american childeren.(30 times, i think i've seen it 3?)
