Olá Insane,
Eu pretendo escrever algumas informações e outros comentários ainda estes dias.


Só preciso de uma coisa muito importante: tempo.

Abraços,

Ei, Sandra, poderia confirmar se é a própria Viz que está fazendo novas edições nos episódios para adequar a exibição do anime na TV aberta brasileira ?

Ou o SBT vai ter de apelar para a tesoura mesmo ?

Oi Victor.
É muito complicado fazer este tipo de confirmação.

Mas acredito que o importante é saber que será editado. Sabe-se lá Deus como. O_o

Ainda hoje (domingo) colocarei umas informações legais.
