    First of all, this doesn't belong in the English Dub forum since Rasengan is still a spoiler.

    In the Nov 2006 issue of US Shonen Jump, they had an advertisement for Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles (by the way, it looks like they're keeping everything in) and it showed a screenshot of Naruto using Rasengan. At the bottom of the screenshot it showed what justu Naruto was using. It read Power Strike. I don't mean to complain, but Rasengan is a much better name that Power Strike. I hope they change the name at the last minute or something.

    Power-Strike...? I mean, couldn't they have at least used a loose translation of Rasengan...or hell, even surprise us once in a while and actually use the real name. :arg

    I didn't think they'd keep Rasengan, though. It's one of those attacks that just doesn't seem right translated, but Chidori was one of those also, and they changed that to Lightning Blade. :amuse

    If they change the name of Rasengan and Chidori I am definitely not watching another dub episode again.

    no no no, that was Raikiri.

    Chidori = Raikiri. If I remember correctly, Raikiri is just another name for Chidori, the name coming from when Kakashi allegedly cut through lightning or something.
    If they are two different attacks, care to explain the difference? It looks exactly the same to me every time he uses it/them.

    EDIT: Ok, just wiki'd it. So it is two different jutsus. What's the difference?

    I side with tenshioni on this one, heck if they'd keep technique name like "byakugan" where's the harm in keeping rasengan. I'll wait and see, but this whole discussion seems reminiscent to the one about kage bushin would be dubbed as art of the doppelganger which in the end was disproven.

    Hey, I'm just going by what the advertisment said. Viz Media provided all the names and voices to the game so Power Strike is probably official.:cry

    Rasengan is better how? Because it sounds neat and Japanese? Oh please.

    Anyway, initially they said things like byakugan were going to be called "Evil eye" because of what websites and shonen jump said. That never happened either

    The video games have used different names than the anime before though, right?

    And what Megaharrison said.

    Yeah, makes sense to me. I honestly dont care as long as we dont get 12 year olds going around screaming it. Really would you rather have the English VA pronouncing it wrong?

    Don't complain. If the German Version makes it this far it will be called something like Jutsu of the glowing Ball (Yes the word Jutsu will be used).:p

    No, Raikiri, Chidori's nickname was renamed.

    Raikiri = Lighting Edge
    Chidori = Thousand Birds
