The Italian version is MUCH better, 5 February 2007
Author: diagoro-1 from United States

See, this is what most people don't understand about this show. It's not American by any means, yet it's been so Americanized to fit this identity that it does NOT fit whatsoever.

Okay, This is a 4Kids show, and therefore it has been given the 4Kids treatment. Everything is heavily edited, they cut out important plot summaries of the show, and they turned the girls into idiots. Basically, they figured that since the girls are wearing somewhat slutty outfits by American standards, they could turn the girls into Bratz Dolls and make money off of it. This is why the American version is the suckageness.

They didn't even have to make a brand new dub, as Rainbow, the company that produces Winx Club in Italy, made a completely different English dub, with all of the character personalities, plots and subplots, and all important scenes and better dialog left intact as it was meant to be. This dub is much better than 4Kids, but since it's on the Italian DVDs, no one really has seen it much here in the US.

What people also need to realize is that even though the girls are wearing skimpy outfits by American standards, is that this is an Italian show, and the girls over there are skinner than over here, therefore, these girls were made to display the normal Italian teenager, and since this is Europe, they are more laxed with their standards. These girls are not sluts in any way, shape or form. They are only that because of what 4Kids made them to be. And even though it's a kids TV show there as well, it is much more wholesome for children when it is left intact as Italy intended.

Personally, if I were a parent, I would NEVER let my daughter watch the 4Kids version. If she ever wanted to see it, I would give her DVDs and have her learn some form of Italian in the process. She'd also never own a Bratz Doll, and would dress like a little girl until I feel she is old enough to decide who she is and make decisions for herself. Yes, this is basically Sailor Moon at Hogwarts, but if you watch the original version, it's actually a damn good show.
