I think the synopsis itself sums up why its so underwatched.

totally disagree....i watched an unsubbed version of episode 1, and even though i know very little japanese enjoyed it - it has the same vibe of many sixties era cartoons that were made in the u.s., but with the added bonus of that wonderful madcap japanese style of humor - my belief is that many people are just not open to older things out of sheer intellectual laziness or maybe just lack of interest in all things outside of their blinkered world view (a sickness sadly very prevalent in our modern consumer tv culture) .....just because something is foreign or old does not make it "boring" or "simplistic", but rather an experience to be savored as a window into another simpler and more warm time - it's the same reason i love to watch silent movies from the early 1900's or like to read 18th century british novels....open yr. mind!

I was quoting something, that was not something I said.
And not everybody enjoys those "60's cartoons", so its not really a surprise this isen't that popular in the west either.


my belief is that many people are just not open to older things out of sheer intellectual laziness or maybe just lack of interest in all things outside of their blinkered world view (a sickness sadly very prevalent in our modern consumer tv culture) .....just because something is foreign or old does not make it "boring" or "simplistic", but rather an experience to be savored as a window into another simpler and more warm time - it's the same reason i love to watch silent movies from the early 1900's or like to read 18th century british novels....open yr. mind!

So its a sickness to not your taste? is that what you're saying?
Aside from the fact it barely has any episodes subbed(which once-again, is a huge turn-off), and the fact it has over 6000 episodes, thus it would take way to long to finish.

Open your mind? Everybody who never watched this doesen't have a open mind?
Do you like sounding like a elitist?
Is it that hard for you to consider that not everybody shares your taste in media?

It's pretty difficult if not impossible to follow this show outside of Japan. I mean, there are online videos but if you don't know Japanese it is absurd to watch them because it seems nobody wants to do the hard work of subbing 6400 episodes. I watched the first minute of the video by AstarQ but that's about it. I usually refuse to watch a raw series, not to mention one that is so focused on Japanese popular culture and must be heavy in situational dialogue and expressions.

no situational dialogue is not that much oits no like the manga were each Strip covered an impoata news story for that day
yes ii read the whole manga and Cause the way in witeen is hard to Understad


The the first 2000 epiosdes of the anime[after the manga was coverd with in the irst 400 worked like this so that may be one of the issues

its not situational dialogue it maybe be lack of knownign what happened on that day in Japanese History that may make it hard to Undersatbd


this i one of the anime that Capture wat Japanese Life is to its core if you wish to Lrean how Japanese :ife is this is the anime for you the only other thing that Comes close to This is accuacy to real Life is Kimpachi Sensei Drama

Most people don't have any active interest in doing so, since, I don't know ,maybe they have other things in their life. Most would rather stick to Leran English, thank you very much.

The better question is why the hell you can't work out something so obvious on your own.

but you can view this fatser than most show since you can view say if you begin to view one piece from the start and watch for five hours a day its would take just under 60 days to get up to date while to view this it up to the same count as op is at now would take just under 3 weeks

Actually, there's an obstacle worse than subs and I'm really surprised NOBODY has mentioned this: This series has never been officially released on home video because the creator Machiko Hasegawa requested it before she died. In other words, she fucked the fans forever, since if you miss one episode bad luck for you: You'll probably never have the opportunity to watch it again since it'll never be released on VHS, DVD or any other home video format and even if you try looking online, Fuji TV is extremely aggressive hunting down uploaders and erasing any videos of this series.

Oh, and if you want to watch all the episodes from the beginning good luck, since this show first aired before VCRs became widespread it's practically impossible to watch it in its entirety. In fact, I doubt ANYONE has watched ALL the episodes of Sazae-san since you'd have to have watched Fuji TV every Sunday from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. since 1969 without failing and I doubt anyone has done that without missing one episode for more than 4 decades.
The only way I know to get some of the early, very old episodes it's in one of the anniversaries specials Fuji TV airs, like the 40th anniversary one where Fuji TV aired some very old episodes from the late 60's and early 70s and broadcast them again for the first time in decades.
I believe even if someone tries to license this they wouldn't be able to due to their ridiculous "no release on home video" policy.

You are asking why something with no subs is underviewed...

And also even if it were subbed, it seems like the sort of show you need to be a native japanese to really get fully. Plus it doesn't sound that exciting to me :P

Though if it was subbed i would be willing to give it a try, the episodes are short so it can just be a thing on the side to sometimes watch when i'm bored :P

Ok, this started 2 years after I was born. I know numerous current popular anime series use the Sazae-san model - especially Gintama, because it's been mentioned several times. But to sub just 10% of this would take a LONG time. I've never seen it, and I'm intrigued, but, as VCRs didn't become popular/affordable until the 1980s, and there's a no-release policy on this show, the likelyhood of anyone having the first say, 15 years worth of episodes, is slim to say the least.

The best thing is to say "oh well," and accept you ain't gonna see it. There's lots of other old series out there that are really entertaining, such as Rumineko Takahashi's stuff. Try that, it's pretty good.

Well at least when my son says which has the most eps now, I can give an accurate answer.

Oh, and apart from soap opera's no-one in the west can be bothered to watch anything that long running anyway.

I agree with you.
It's somewhat "out" in the western world (imo) because nowadays, people like action, good graphic and/or good fanservice. I don't know if it's just me. There are people who are interested in this but not everyone is a fan of this kind of anime. We all have opinions that are different and should respect that. Not force opinions on others. -cough octal cough-

I have been a anime watcher for 5 years and never heard of this anime.

I've been watching anime since about 94-96 when it was cheaper to buy dubbed because some retard at Viz & Pioneer decided to charges an extra $10-$15 for subs.

I too have never heard of this show.

I can accept the loss of the 1st 15-18 years when you realize the technological limitations of the time. That said maybe... just maybe someone will reverse sub the series from current stuff backwards. That's the only way I see it working, & pray this show doesn't have linear arcs. Considering each episode is 10mins it'll be a safe bet on non-linear story.

Lastly if they can butcher Crayola Shin Chan to work for westerners then they can take the knife to this. Really has anyone ever seen dubbed Shin Chan?! What the $#&* over?! Keep the topical/pop humor completely intact people.

Because people want to hear jokes about transient pop-culture or politics from decades ago? That would make fansubs difficult enough, but putting money into a straight release of something like Shin-chan (or Sazae-san) is a ridiculous idea. It would never succeed.

I don't know what you mean by "saflmy" but you seem to be asking these shows to be received in America exactly the same as in Japan. It would never work. Anime is a niche interest in America, even stuff that's mainstream and actually popular in Japan like Shin-chan, Sazae-san, or Detective Conan.

Airing a series that's so steeped in the atmosphere of 1960s Japan would never work. It's trading on nostalgia that an American audience cannot possibly have.

Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

Lastly if they can butcher Crayola Shin Chan to work for westerners then they can take the knife to this. Really has anyone ever seen dubbed Shin Chan?! What the $#&* over?! Keep the topical/pop humor completely intact people.

Because people want to hear jokes about transient pop-culture or politics from decades ago? That would make fansubs difficult enough, but putting money into a straight release of something like Shin-chan (or Sazae-san) is a ridiculous idea. It would never succeed.


shinCahn should be a kids show and this a saflmy one both should air on TV at proper times thay fucked shin chan up to make ot an a south park clone

I don't know what you mean by "saflmy" but you seem to be asking these shows to be received in America exactly the same as in Japan. It would never work. Anime is a niche interest in America, even stuff that's mainstream and actually popular in Japan like Shin-chan, Sazae-san, or Detective Conan.

Airing a series that's so steeped in the atmosphere of 1960s Japan would never work. It's trading on nostalgia that an American audience cannot possibly have.


Shin Chan is a Family Show and funi fucked in to a south park clone when you consider i was aring subbed in the us on Kiku Tv from around a mothn after it began in Japan till funomation raped it


its not Nostagia have you look at the ratings ofr it of late

Kiku is a Hawaiian TV station and its a bad idea to draw a conclusion from just one state; the cultural environment of Hawaii is quite different from the rest of the US; Kiku is specifically aimed at Asians; almost 40% of the population in that state whereas it's only 5% nationally (http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/15000.html). Moreover even they aired anime via partnership with Funimation for a while only to give it up because it wasn't popular enough (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KIKU#cite_ref-7).
