Naruto and One Piece finally licensed!

4kids has picked up the rights to the hit anime properties, Naruto and One Piece. It took a while, but I'm glad that the youths of america will finally get a chance to see these brilliant shows. Naruto, and POSSIBLY One Piece, are both set to air on the FoxBox, which is great news if I've ever heard it. With luck, 4kids will do just as good a job with Naruto and One Piece as they did with Shaman King. According to this articale, all the names from Naruto will be changed except for Naruto's himself. They don't want kids trying to fumble around with foreign names like 'Kakashi' and 'Sasuke', so those two characters, for instance, will be renamed 'Silver' and 'Blade', respectively. Much cooler, in my opinion, and way easier to pronounce.

On the One Piece front, there will be even fewer changes, except that all the dramatic flashback episodes will be cut. Kids don't care what the character's motives are, they just want ACTION!

Check animeondvd.com's front page for more info.

The hell?

4kids also got one piece?? Great job Funi...you lost out on a treasure!

Edit: Is this another April Fool's joke??

If it is...it's funny. If it ain't, I'm pulling my hair.
