Harmful to kids? How?

Dec 8, 2008 9:01 AM by sniW

So, is the indian government publicly saying that indian parents are, in general, incapable of preventing their children from watching something that they think it's harmful to them? And that their domestic education is so feeble that they fear the "evil" TV shows that much?

that's a little extreme, but having seen kids imitating shin-chan i wouldn't say that decision is wrong, but anyway

Honestly, if people in India want to watch it, they'll find a way to see it.

C'mon everybody, let's do the Ass Dance :-P!


The Ass Dance exists only in English dub


Huh, really? I never knew that xD

Than again, I only watch the FUNimation Entertainment English Dub :-P.


Funi took several hundred episodes of Shin-chan, cut out pieces, moved 'em around, and made individual episodes out of them. With the dub, it's a completely different show. I mean, episode 47 was actually made up of like 10 different eps, none of them 47, I'm sure.


And you think I care about that? I just simply can't have Shin Chan on my anime list here is all, it's not anything to get worked over :-P.

I still watch Shin Chan, and I plan on buying the Season Box Sets once I have the spare $$$.


That's why we keep gettin' those horrible dubs~


Whut do u meen bi dat? *sucks thumb and poops in diaper*

Not surprising....since I am from India.The stupid ministers really like banning stuff..Maybe next time they might end up banning Pokemon and Dragonball Z too.

I actually think Crayon Shin-chan is slightly perverted. I don't think my sister should watch it...

After all, it has naked girls in almost every episode with Shin-chan making pervy remarks.

Maybe I'm the only one who thinks that...

And I'M the one who's perverted. XD


Well, yeah, of course it's perverted; that doesn't warrant it being banned countrywide, though. :P

I wonder if Setsuna had to deal with anything like this when he was growing up XD

Oh wait... Hes from the middle east no India XS
Spoiler: Setsuna became a parent-killing terrorist because of Crayon Shin-chan, not Al* *l S**chez.

It's weird seeing that an anime was banned in India and not in China XD.
Good for India, I had to watch Shin-chan along with my cousins for a whole month (they stayed at my place) and I found it to be VERY disgusting, kids will grow smarter by not watching that show.
That said, if you're not a kid and won't take Shin-chan as a role model, the show can be entertaining.
