1. Vision of Escaflowne (1996)
If anyone remembers when this used to air on Fox Kids; technically they showed only seventeen episodes of it but so much was cut out of it that it turned into twelve.

2. One Piece (1999)
Another 4Kids massacre. Guns turning into hammers and such. People's skin changing color. Entire, vital story arcs completely left out. Hopefully Funimation can fix what 4Kids broke.

4. CardCaptors (2000)
Sakura: "Hey, are we in Tokyo?"
4kids: "No."
Sakura: "But, Tokyo Tower is right over ther.."
4kids: "I said no, you stupid brat! Now Give Li all your screentime."
Sakura: "But the show is named after m.."
4kids: "I thought I told you to shut your trap!"
Sakura: "...."

For whatever reason, they tried to get boys to watch this by changing the name from "Cardcaptor Sakura" to "Cardcaptors", and making cuts to give Li more screentime. Gotta love 4kids.

5. Excel Saga (1999)
the dialogue is fairly similar to the original. But the voice acting is done with so much zeal, that it needs to be on this list.

6. Shin Chan (1992)
A rarity, this one. It's dialogue has been changed almost completely, but it may be even funnier and zanier than the original. seriously, watch it if you haven't.

8. Yu-Gi-Oh! GX (2004)
this thing is seriously, with as little joking possible, gay. Straight up. Also, it sucks.

I actually liked this one. Most people don't. I don't know why.

The best Digimon out of the lot. Don't know to what extent its been redone, but its watchable.

Never watched, but looks interesting.

15. Super Dimension Fortress Macross (1982)
Mari Ijima plays Lynn Minmay in both the original Japanese and the english dub. A rarity in anime. Even to this day.

16. Robotech (1985)
See the show right above this one. Put that show plus two other barely related anime, Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada, respectively. You make edits here and there and you get this. It's not bad.

There are two separate dubs of this one. Each has its ups and downs.

21. Dragon Ball GT (1996)
Akira Toriyama had nothing to do with this one, and it was crap before it ever even left Japan.

25. Doraemon (1979)
its been watched in just about every country except the US. It's been dubbed in dozens of languages in hundreds of countries and still not even a whiff of it stateside. I don't get it either.

Johny Depp used to watch it when he was a kid.

26. Spider Riders (2005)
It's been in syndication since it first aired, and I've been watching before going to work in the wee hours of the morning. Everyone sounds like they're on downers or something. It's a little creepy.

27. Sonic X (2003)
Sonic may have come from Japan but we made it better. The second time around. If you're keeping track, this the fourth Sonic cartoon.

30. Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's (2008)
Unbelievably enough, it's almost as good as the original. The motorbike card races aren't as common as I thought they would be. That's a good thing.
silent killer's rating:


 

In which american companies make Japanese anime more US friendly by removing scenes or changing plots or making it so it fits a certain age range. Sometimes it come out alright. Most of the time it turns into a joke. A horrible one at that, where said anime becomes unwatchable. This happens to most if not all anime shown in the US, but for now lets focus on the more extreme cases, shall we. If anyone has one that I missed go ahead and pitch in.
