    I was wondering who else would be interested in seeing the Japanese Anime Yatterman on American TV? I hear it is gaining popularity within the YouTube community.

    I take it you're referring to the series that aired last year, not the older ones.

    It would be interesting. In Japan, it has a status more akin to Looney Tunes in that it's been running for a very long time and so many adults remember it from their childhood and watch it - I recall once seeing a video of a Japanese Self-defence Force band playing the theme song. On the other hand, in most other countries it lacks the nostalgia value.

    The show would be worth a try, although it is really a little bit too Japanese so it might be a bit hard to pull off. I'd hate to think that the localisation might result in it being little more than a generic superhero anime.
