    The Horror of the German Dub - Ep. 7 is up!

    (Because of the 10-images-in-one-post limit I decided to add the links to the edited pictures instead.)


    All you Americans out there don't know how lucky you should be with the Naruto dubbing you received.
    (Sadly the UK was much less lucky...)
    Not only does the German dub contain the most God awful voice acting and opening theme (Death Note CM) I've ever heard in my life but they also got a crap load of cheap cuts which seem to get worse and worse every episode.
    Just for fun I decided to put up some of my favorites here and describe and comment them a little.
    Note that I do not watch the American dub, only the Japanese, so I have no idea if any of this was in the American version as well but I'll do my best to only list the German changes.
    Feel free to tell me if I missed anything... interesting.



    Spoiler: Episode 4
    The German dubbers are obviously having a hard time deciding on whatever they should keep that poor Kunai or edit it out. Oh, and the scene where Kakashi grabs Naruto's hand? They decided to change that into a scene of him leaning his face against his hand... which they had already showed earlier in the same episode.



    *Giggle...*


    Spoiler: Episode 5
    This one speaks for itself.


    Spoiler: Episode 6
    In this episode we find out that Naruto has blue blood..! The cutting scene was replaced with a completely STILL image of some strange red... thing. There was no kunai being showed at all. He just stands there, looking all mad and pissed and then, poof! There was our dear 'strange red thing' in all it's glory!



    I had to be quick to spot this first image. Right when the scene changes you can see the original image there but then it's replaced with a badly drawn backpack strap. I'm starting to wonder if Naruto cut himself at all in this episode... Sadly, I can't speak German so I guess I'll never know.



    Oh, this one is my favorite. <3
    It's absolutely horrible.
    I have nothing more to say than that.


    Spoiler: Episode 7
    (Note: Decided to add the original scenes next to the German scenes from now on, just so you can compare them properly.)


    Let's start with some simple edits, shall we? (By the way, that huge dildo Zabuza had has magically transformed back into a sword again.) ... Wait a second, I thought red was supposed to be a bad color?



    Great. We get a double amount of scared, whining Sasuke. Just great.



    This scene got completely messed up and therefore the image is very large. You can't notice it by just looking at screenshots but they switched places with just about every scene at the end there. (I'm just too lazy to put them up that way...) Oh, and the kunai Kakashi puts against Zabuza's throat is replaced with more of these random scenes. Oh, did I say kunai? What kunai? There is no kunai here at all.



    Oh, and while switching places/messing up all those scenes they added some of their own ones. (Like looong dramatic close ups...) ... Erm, I thought Kakashi was not supposed to have a kunai?

    What, the UK got a different dub? O_o

    Why do the Germans use the American dub while changing the opening (and probably endings too)?

    Have any of you seen the Italian opening? It's so bad, too. Random scenes stuck together o_O.

    You mean THIS? XD XD XD XD

    This is even worse: THIS
    Apparentely, the Polish used the French opening theme O_o

    LOL No offence to any German members, but Naruto dubbed into German will sound so weird! Im gonna look for some videos.

    EDIT: OMG lol i just looked at the pictures. Germany fucked that up. The french Uncut looks ok for French people =D You guys got it good.

    What a... ?

    those are completely unnecessary editings, its not like a little blood and a few weapons would kill the kids.

    You get to see more blood in Pokemon for crying out loud! :omg

    Actually the 104 licenced episodes uncut were broadcasted. They start to broadcast Naruto in january 2006, one episode everyday (monday to friday)
    We have a cut version but not broadcastet yet so don't worry, we will have a very bad opening as well

    Wait, what? They've already broadcasted the Uncut version and they're NOW going to broadcast the cut one?!

    And what's so different about the UK dub, anyway? More censors? New voices?

    Yes broadcasted for fan first on a Video Game channel called "Game one" watched by people around 15 - 25 years old.

    The Naruto cut version is based on the american cut version and will be broadcasted on a big channel like RTL in Germany in a kids program


    Ps: where i can found the UK version of Naruto ?

    That doesn't make any sense at all. Why bother broadcasting a show like that. Just get the new Teletubbies season instead :- /

    More money for Dargaud (licencer). One channel broadcast the teenage version (uncut) and the other channel broadcast the kid version. We do the same with american serie like 24 or desparate housewife (first broadcasting on a pay channel and after few month second broadcasting on a free channel)

    As I've said before the german versions better than UK, Germans actualy have editing tools:

    'That was much better than the Jetix version, no freeze framing and they actually have editing tools to rid the blood, Jetix would just freeze frame, add letterbox or even place a shot from another episode. But at least the Jetix version shows Zabuza's sword.'

    EXAMPLE OF UK JETIX VERSION: (Out of sync.)

    I saw the comparaison......poor english Naruto fan.

    This kind of censur is impossible in france now but in the past Dragon ball Z was censured like that. Now there is a lot of japanime (that the name of japanese anime in france) fan in France and they want ORIGINAL OPENING/ENDING and NO CENSUR and a GOOD DUB.

    Lucky, I heard in France is easy to obtain Manga's and anime DVD's, unlike the UK. We do get uncut dvd's and on TV mature anime's like FMA, Evangelion are aired uncut here, at an early time. Usually the anime with the kiddy image is one one to get censored example One Piece, Naruto ect.

    Yeah, that's called syndication. They don't cut the episodes up and censor them, though!

    Hmm...wtf, lol. According to someone on Youtube, Jetix edited out Sarutobu smoking a pipe in the ending sequence for a shot of Konohamaru o_O.

    I think the Saint Seiya opening looks like some kind of comparison video between the Japanese and the French opening. I doubt they have a 4-minute opening >_>'.
