Remember how the scenes where Buruma shot everyone with a machine gun
they all were fine, and SABAN seemed to think this would put ideas into kids'
heads? Well, what about huge fights with NO BLOOD! These people contradict
themselves constantly! Just why is it not okay to be fine after being shot
with a gun, but it's ok to be perfectly fine after being crushed by a 30000
pound ape?? Gimme a break!! This is getting ridiculous! Their whole idea
is "fighting is bad and has consequences", then why do they edit out all the
bruises and face hits? What if a little kid says, "Lookie! A star! Maybe I
can make one on my friend's face too!", then wouldn't that provoke violence
because of something supernatural, other than the regular "owie" and blood?
A kid is not gonna say, "Oh, that blood looks cool. Maybe I can go make
some,", because a normal kid knows blood is associated with hurt and knows he
doesn't like hurt. But this star thing isn't normal, so kids won't know it
really is hiding something bad. And cigarettes? If people grow up not
knowing what cigarettes are, they may decide to "try some to see what it is".
That may be bad, too, instead of a parent saying, "Now remember, TV is make
believe". I know that I HAVE NEVER had a nightmare because of TV. Sure, I
have dreams where I'm the hero and everybody likes me, but never nightmares.
This brings up another important issue: exposure. Kids have usually seen
their own butts by the time they're 2 days old, and I really don't think
anyone for quite a while after 2 days old is gonna be watching DBZ, this is
not an issue at all. Now the bathroom jokes I really don't like, because
they're sort of....(oh my favorite word again) contradicting. The characters
are supposed to be heroes and all, so little kids might imitate them. Kids
imitate Superman, Batman, and many other superheroes, and the Z team is no
exception. So that censoring I agree with. Now my rant is done, just a
little "(oh there goes that word again) contradiction summary.
