Personal Quotes (1)

[on the Americanization of anime] I have a mixed opinion on that, I think there's something good about Americanizing Japanese cartoons, because there's something good and bad about it. When people do it poorly it sucks, when people do it well it works and I think that some people are not smart enough to handle anime the way it was originally intended. I think as a gateway into appreciating the art of it, I don't think it's bad necessarily to craft a little bit around parts of the story that American people wouldn't be able to handle, because if you're a fan of the original Japanese translation when the episode is released, you get a translation and you get a subtitle track. And technically when you watch a foreign film you watch the subtitle track, the only time I watch a dub is when I want to make fun of it.
