France has cheaper manga and by far superior translations. Kapspop = SHIT, Planet Manga = FAIL, Heyne = AIDS, and EMA's stuff has shitty prints.
Dubs are mostly shit, too, especially the recent ones, when they went for speed instead of actual workmanship. I wouldn't have thought you could make Naruto worse, but then I watched the dub. Only decent dub I've seen in the last 5+ years was Detective Conan, and that one is infected with RTL2 AIDS.
DVDs are, quality-wise, light years behind compared with US releases. LOL yellow subs with black borders in the middle of the screen. Let's sub like it's 1995 and for VHS. A+++, German DVD companies.
