On September 10th in 2005 the smash hit anime "Naruto" started airing in the "Toonami" program of Cartoon Network. However, for a lower rating some edits were necessary.
Yet, the level of editing is moderate. Despite blood has been removed or reduced digitally, the fights itself are usually completely intact.
Besides that the US version had some scenes redrawn. Unfortunately, the US version had its own opening and ending, which was resented by many fans because it wasn't really a song, sounding as good as the original songs used for opening and ending credits. Besides that, most of the original names were kept, but some are spelled or pronounced not correctly. Detailed comparisons between both versions with pictures can be found here.
Inner Sakura yells , romanized "Shannaro!". It doesn't have a literal meaning, but it's used to express a strong emotion, usually repressed by Sakura in daily life.
In the English dub, "Shannaro!" was replaced by the word "Cha!".
Unfortunately there is no announcement made yet. The series has been available on DVD since 2003 (Japan).
