And in the uncut Pokemon, Ash always says "Damn" everytime there's danger. Yugioh...oh man, you have no idea how much it was edited! They even edited guns out of guards and monsters! They edited the "perverted" joke even though there's no nudity to see! Hell, they even put two episodes into one with no apparent reason (other than the "it's too slow!" But that's not even a good reason. Of course, this isn't anything new. It reminds me of Fox's Escaflowne). Even though I don't agree with these edits, I can "vaguely" understand why they did all of that. But can someone tell me what's there to edit from Hamtaro?! Editing Hamtaro is like editing Barney the dinosaur!
I think the Hamtaro edits are simply for time and also changing katakana in the background into English. That's all. Nothing like blood or swearing.
Pokemon's edits aren't that big. The only big edits was the swimsuit episode and refusing to air an episode simply because a guy carries a gun in it.
And if it helps, the Yu-Gi-Oh manga will be part of Shonen Jump and Shonen Jump will be unedited.
