    so far, the dub is really getting to amaze me. the translation is perfect, well, most of the time. the voice actings could be better, but hey, it's only episode 4. there'll be room for improvement.
    er, i'm more interested in wat you guys say. so how you people like the dub so far?

    I think the dub is great. :) The translation is awesome and the voice acting is better than expected. I know a lot of people are probably not going to agree with that, but hey, to each his (or her) own.

    Yay! Viz owns 4kids in the dubbing industry. Even though their uncut DVD releases are pretty lackluster, they still beat 4kids' non-existant uncut DVDs!

    x_x...where are all the dub lovers?...
    viz beats 4kids by a long distance. the only "good" project i've seen 4kids worked on was pokemon.

    I like the dub. But of course I will lord my superior knowledge over newbie Naruto fans for all it's worth... which is... three... dollars and... twenty-six... cents......

    Still not an A+ but it's steadily rising. It will be an A+ if Maile improved over the next few episodes. If she can convinvingly show sorrow, pain, and seriousness, then it will be an A+. Then, if they showed the intros/outros, it would be an A++. ^_^

    With four commercial breaks how will they ever have the time to show even the entire episodes none the less the original intros/outros. Its all about the money.

    well you've got a non japanese speaking cast (mostly) trying to pronounce japanese words. they may not be doing in that well, with the exception of sasuke's VA who's doing a very good job with names because he happens to speak japanese already, but i can tell that they're trying. what im most pleased with is the translations. they're really paying attention to the meaning and context of every line and it's really paying off for them in my mind. now i do hope that the VAs can get over some of their stiffness. a lot of their lines are delivered flat but they're still trying to settle into their roles. i do have high hopes for them so im looking for them to get better pretty soon.

    I have to say on the whole I'm pretty pleased and satisfied with what I've seen and heard so far.

    Great job.

    If I were to grade it I'd give it a B+ or an A-. Yeah A-.

    I think the dub is phenominal.

    Voices are good, editing is minimal... overall excellent quality! :thumbs

    You are so right... why would they keep the music score,ranks,names,japanese signs/kanjis unedited,cast voices that reflect the characters very close to the original(chouji is the exception so far), script 99% untouched, translated technique names that make sense,retouched art/animation that got old with time... jeebuz this sucks. please stop watching! It sucks... Believe it!:p

    The Dub fails in meedting my expectations. I have stated 2 keys important to every dub and while Naruto executes #1 failry well and with some questionability the voice actign cast, Maile Flannigan in particular, fail to meet my expectations of #2. I will not compare the dub to the sub but even alone without another version to compare it to the dub fails. It does not meet expectations to be called good let alone great.

    There is much room for improvment but it it stays as it is now I would have to rate it between One Piece and Shaman King as worst dubs ever.


    As for the edits thats another story but I sorta expected it so never had high hopes for a Toonami airing and Adult Swim already said back in March they didn't want it.

    Jimbo? Sorry, but please calm down. People are allowed to like the dub. Just because people like it doesn't mean they're bad people. So chill out and agree to disagree. Thank you.

    It's alright, and you're entitled to think that.

    All on my own here so please don't flame me,

    Naruto's voice actor: She's gotten better, though she could get more emotional. My biggest complaint is, I would prefer that she gets more high pitched, so that she sounds more like Jp. Naruto.

    Well. Considering I've never watch subs.(My computer's screwed up.) I wouldn't know what the Japenese version was like. But I must say that from reading the manga and know a little bit about the original version from info from the net, then I give the dub an A.:)

    THink the dub is going great...way better than I expected. SInce these guys are following up behind some phenomenal voice actors from the original anime, I was worried at first...but they delivered past my expectations. Is it gonna take some time getting used to? yep. BUt im definitely looking forward to it.

    I just want to reiterate that the response toward the dub has been overwhelmingly positive.

    I think that's what gets the goats of the haters and the purists most of all.

    Again, I agree with the Vile One. The general response to the westernized Naruto has been great. Everything is lovingly transcribed with careful attention to detail while remaining sensitive the fans who already love the series. There are, of course, people with unbridled hatred toward the dub, and in many cases I suspect it's only because it seems to be "hip" to think like that nowadays. Sad stuff, really.

    i love the dub. What I don't understand is why the haters constantly complain... i mean the same people over and over again. I mean all of the negative naruto satements have been said, so why continue to fight a lost cause?
