Did You Know?


For Greek and Cypriot fans, a key element that adds to the show's notoriety is its poor dubbing. The show was translated from Japanese into Greek through English, thus the dub has many instances of awkward, word-for-word, or completely erroneous translation (such as referring to noodles as pasta, calling a baseball bat by the word for the mammal bat, or referring to a shuriken as a "knife".) The actors' performance is also sub par, featuring bad to non-existent lip-synching, the repeat of a phrase over the characteristically long-winded original Japanese, an actor dubbing two characters in the same scene using the same voice, and speaking in a monotone or a low voice while the animated character is shown yelling. Viewers however generally feel that these make the dub even more hilarious. See more »
