Vice TV: Mario no Railgun

Come be distracted in here!

  
  Spiral Effect: Mass Effect 2 and Gurren Lagann have a lot in common, they both are amazingly epic. Bringing these two franchises together is perhaps the greatest thing humans have ever done; well at least for today. Now all we need is a Gurren Lagann game in the style of Mass Effect and I will be set for life.
  
  Super Mario Railgun: Mario and Toaru Kagaku no Railgun don't really have much in common, except of course for this amazing MAD. It takes a certain type of genius to bridge the gap between a universe with hot girls using super powers, to a universe where plumbers stomp on turtles for a living. 
  
  Japanese Take a Good Hard Look at What 4Kids Did to One Piece: It took Japanese otaku this long for them to realize the crimes against humanity 4Kids did to One Piece, and boy I can imagine them being pretty upset. Here is an in-depth look at all the changes that were made in order to save our children.  Because someone obviously needs to think of the children.
 
  
  Bad Apple on CNN: Here is the first, and probably the last time Touhou will ever be on CNN, and that is probably a good thing. Be careful young viewers, this video can be a little "creepy". 
 
  
  Gay Bar of Life: The only reason why this video is here is because of the title. Seriously, you can't do any better than "Gay Bar of Life". 
  
  
  Japanese People Now Giving 40 Year Olds the Ability to Listen to Music Again: This commercial is hilarious, not because it is targeted toward 40-year-old women, but because of their first song choice.

Wow, thank you Len. Spiral Effect is really all I could ever ask for.

A lot of excellent ones this week. I really liked the Spiral Effect one, it fit pretty well.

Good find on the One Piece one. I blame 4KIDS for the lack of popularity in the series. Everyone thought that was how the series was.
 
Them and VIZ.
 
Funny thing about the kanji they removed from Mr1. That is actually a rather uncommon kanji for the number 1.
 
Not to mention their war on cleavage.

I liked the one piece one, but i remember reading about how badly they where going to fuck it up about a year before it officially released dubbed in English from some anime magazine i bought once. I thought the lollipop thing was funny as hell. I wanted to watch the English version as i thought some of the VO wasn't that bad, and the opening in English is very catchy, but i knew how badly they censored it, and I'm against supporting any and all forms of censorship, so i never watched it. Makes me sad too, as i loved reading the manga in my shonene jump that i bought every month.

@crusader8463: 
From what I've heard. I believe even the new FUNimation dubs are keeping the stupid Sanji lollipop change. They are also calling God Eneru, "King Eneru".

Good videos this week, I don't get why that woman thought Bad Apple was "creepy" though. Ah well.

LOL. Japanese women got RickRollED! xD 
The 4Kids One Piece didin't really surprise me. They did relatively the same to Naruto. 
The Mario Railgun video was great though even with that much effort it is obvious how unfitting the two is. 
And lastly the Spiral Effect video was interesting but the scene choices were a bit strange sometimes.
