The S&P people are usually pretty damn obtuse, so you can slip suggestive stuff by them quite easily (much like the video game's ESRB board). They only really notice overt violent/sexual content, and don't really grasp subtext very well.
Anyone know who handles the editing of the content for DBZ Kai? Is it a group within Funimation or does a third party get involved?
For the record, I think the mushroom thing was actually handled well considering (it didn't look all janky like the edits the Ocean Dub of DBZ employed), though the bizarro Gohan eye thing was pretty embarrassing (though animation errors like that can be found all the time both in Japan and abroad).
Yeah, CW has strict censorship for Y7 shows. It's obvious he's dead, they just can't say it.
If I had to guess FUNimation is the one doing the editing. I'd probably know more if I read the credits though.

What was up with Piccolo the sayian though?
If that was Funimation's mistake they are completely retarded, I mean common they've been doing the damn series for more then a damn decade.
I really doubt that was FUNi's mistake. That line wasn't even read by one of their voice actors. It was by Jason Griffith, a 4Kids VA. 4Kids likely did that whole bit themselves without consulting FUNi on it since it was just a small recap.
No, I wouldn't want Toonzai to air One Piece. That would be asking for trouble.

So they get a list of things that need to be edited by the network, and they handle them in-house. I'm guessing a lot of the fubars like what was posted earlier are due to time restraints (they gotta rush out these edited episodes asap).
After seeing those Dragon Ball edits, I'd love for One Piece to be on Toonzai. It would be funny.

Ideally, I'd like it to go on the channel where the least amount of editing will be done to it (and not AS, cause it'll fail there... uncut or not). But In reality...
I really don't care where it goes. As long as it gets more exposure. We have the uncut DVDs. Where it goes, in the long run, shouldn't matter much... as long as it's getting exposure.
If Cartoon Network ever decides to bring anime back, they should get it.
If you've seen their newest shows, they seem okay with showing material that isn't completely for kids (notably Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Sym-Bionic Titan).
And the Meek shall Inherit the Earth.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't they always been okay with showing material that isn't really for kids?

I think it's pretty great that we're getting cartoons (action or comedy) for a slightly edgier crowd that isn't quite so Family Guy/Adult Swim-esque, but sadly I don't think that One Piece is likely to get a platform in that demo, considering it's kind of jarring visually/tonally (wacky at times, hyper-violent and melodramatic other times).
I would prefer Nicktoons so that it could air alongside DBZkai and Power Rangers (and later on TMNT and Legend of Korra) but if not, sure Toonzai if nothing else.
Is there even any more Saturday Morning kids blocks on Non-cable Television anymore?
god, I miss Fox Kids and the Disney Afternoon, :-(
I'd like OP to be on some children's channel because like you said it's impossible to get OP on to anywhere else. BUT NOT TOONZAI, that place is an anime killing organization, especially blue popo! I'd like it to be on cartoon network or something, they aren't too bad. If it gets on adult swim then definitely, but I dont think that's not gonna happen
How about the Hub?
does anyone watch that channel, It has Transformers Prime and some anime called, Deltora Quest on it, do you think OP has a chance on that network?
It seems like the Hub skews for a pretty young set, and would probably lead to heavy edits. Hasbro owns the network and it looks like it's being used to push their toys and other merch.
