Good Naruto US news
News on the Naruto dub from Anime Insider
It says that Shopro will air Naruto in September, and the first DVD will be released in December. Although the Toonami version will be editted, the DVDs will supposedly be purely uncut. Shopro's reason for putting it on Toonami and not on Adult Swim is to boost the show's popularity.
Things that will be cut out or editted are as follows:
Any blood that flows out of a character (except for when Naruto stabs his hand).
Zaku's exploding joints in episode 40.
Sasuke's throat full of needles in episode 16.
Things that will not be cut out or editted are as follows:
Naruto stabbing his hand.
The Sexy no Jutsu.
Blood that does not flow out.
Also, all of the ninja moves will keep their original Japanese names! (Such as: Kagebunshin no Jutsu, Sexy no Jutsu, etc.)
