sounds about right. I wanted to try One Piece awhil back, turned on an episode, and was pretty repulsed. It was almost as bad as how Brock calls Onigiri "Doughnuts" in the original 4kids Pokemon dub.
Also, who knows, I like to think maybe if this does amazingly well, Bandai will purchase the rights for/hire MJM to relaunch the CCG *Cool Smiley*
