You can catch Naruto on Cartoon network. But once you watch the English dub you will appreciate the fact that your friend bothered to send you the sub. It is horrible along with most English dubs of anime. Subs are tough at first but if you watch enough it becomes second nature reading as you watch. Subs also provide the most accurate translation of what the creators wanted to express. Dubs are more concerned with using words that matching the mouth movements of the characters and are willing to sacrifice accuracy to do so.

Don't know why that should be that big a factor. When i watch Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, i actually watch it with Japanese voices and english subs. The Japanese voice actors are just a hell of alot better. But i can see you're point if you hate reading subs

So now it's a misunderstanding... how can that be taken in a good way?

Anyway good for him to man up and say sorry.

In japan anyone who isn't Otaku and claims someone is otaku is being offensive.

He needs to be silenced, for sure.

in the history of the industry. Sure MS pushes DLC like crazy then puts up a barrier by charging ridiculous prices for its harddrive upgrade but this has to take the cake. Actually insulting people who want to buy more DLC from your company.

Oh yes, of course! Clearly he meant "geeks" in the most sincere, non-hurtful way possible. What an upstanding citizen! All is forgiven!
