Synopsis

Just because an anime features a young protagonist does not necessarily mean that it is an appropriate series to show your children. Young Shinnosuke, or Shin-chan for short, is a very creative young boy that lives with his eccentric parents, Misae and Hiroshi, as well as his Prima Donna younger sister, Himawari, and has loads of unique friends to boot.

Everyday life for little Shin-chan is full of funny (and shocking) moments, most of which stem from his unnatural and sometimes profane use of language, as well as his constant acts of inappropriate behavior. Shin-chan's famous "elephant" gag is one of the most defining moments in Crayon Shin-chan, simply because it is the epitome of crude comedy, one of the core themes of the series.

Crayon Shin-chan is a hilarious show about the day in the life of a young, curious boy, that captures the awkwardness of growing up as well as the beauty of being true to one's self, no matter what others say.

Background

The first English dubbed version was produced with many famous voice actors through 2001-2002 by Vitello Productions. In 2004, Phuuz Entertainment produced a continuation of the Vitello dub with different Los Angeles-based voice actors. The Phuuz and Vitello dub aired in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Republic of Ireland, and translations of these dubs aired in Europe and Latin America. The dubs were close to the original but had seen some censorship. The English dubbed version by Funimation was produced in 2005, featuring a Texas-based cast of voice actors, and was altered in comparison to the original - sexual references, dark humor, and references to popular American culture were added later on. Additionally, many non-existent backstories and different personalities were created.
Crayon Shin-chan has also been adapted into video games, mobile games and tons of anime movies.

My opinion may not be shared by most of MAL users, because Crayon Shin-chan is rated PG(-13) in American countries and is for "Everyone" in my country, so everybody here sees it as an anime destined to children.

I'm not going to write a long review for this one, it's going to be plain and simple. Shin-chan is a 5 years old boy that disturbs every one, he's obviously and logically childish, he's pervert, addicted to television, his mother is really incredible to stand this impossibly irritating little boy. The show is full of under-the-belt jokes as well as troubles between adults because of Shin's way read more

It slightly saddens me that Crayon Shin-Chan does not get very many reviews because this is my childhood ( although this series is quite inappropriate for young children in certain aspects... ). And many people in the American community think it's stupid ( which isn't wrong, because there are rather... strange parts to this series that just makes this "Crayon Shin-Chan" ).

However, there is a strange charm to this series which drag the audience in. It merely seems like a weird children's show at first glance, but it is actually an adult show with many adult-targeted humor. However, there are still an aspect of childhood read more

This is by far one of the most fun special anime show,it doesn't feature the kind of a story and animation you usually see in other anime shows, even tho the story is repetitive, and it might seem that the subject is mostly about a 5-year-old showing his buttocks to everybody, it isn't that way, it has it's own humour, slapstick jokes, and antics from a quirky little boy who can twist and turn any other's opinions and make them say what they don't intend to. Shin-Chan doesn't seem to behave even after his mother, Misae, spanks his behind and stretches his cheeks at a read more

***THIS IS A REVIEW SOLELY FOR THE FUNIMATION ADULT SWIM CRAYON SHIN-CHAN***

When I first acknowledged that Shin-chan is finally going to be dubbed and licensed in NA, I was filled with thrill and excitement, having been a diehard Kureiyon Shin-chan fan since I was born, and could not wait to see it. However, after watching through all of it, and saw that there isn't any review on MyAnimeList on this specific release, I felt like I could give a word of advice or two for those who haven't seen it but will.

Every bit of the English dubbed version of Crayon Shin-chan reminds me of the read more
