original title: Naruto

Comparison:

  • US Version
  • Japanese TV Version
Release: Apr 26, 2011 - Author: Jim - Translator: Matar - external link: IMDB - more from this series
In this episode there is no time difference. The intro as well as the credits are not taken into consideration.

On September 10th in 2005 the smash hit anime "Naruto" started airing in the "Toonami" program of Cartoon Network. However, for a lower rating some edits were necessary.
Yet, the level of editing is really moderate (especially compared to the german which contains almost not a single drop of blood and is also otherwise HEAVILY censored). Usually it's just that some blood has been removed or reduced, the fights itself are usually completly intact.
Besides that the US version had some scenes redrawn. Ususally faces of characters or other minor "mistakes" were corrected, to look more like the manga.

Of course the US version had it's own opener and ending, which was resented by many fans because it wasn't really a song, sounding as good as the original songs used for opening and ending credits. Besides that all the original names were kept, but some are spelled or pronounced not correctly.
Yet, the US version is very good - for a censored version.
For comparisons goes:
Left: japanese version
Right: US version


Considering this episode: There have been few censoring related cuts here but several takes were adjusted. Especially in the scene in which the water, that has been pushed through the wood by Kakashi's attack, goes back. While the Japanese version shows this scene with normal sound but freeze frames the US version offers correctly animated water. In this episode the intro as well as the credits have not been taken into consideration, therefore there is no time difference.
