The Japanese version doesn't feel as bad for some reason, or it isn't as noticeable. The episodes seem more structured somehow, I'm not sure what the dub did to break the flow so badly.
But that's shounen for you. Most of them suffer from the same problems, with a few exceptions. >>13570855
I try not to let what others think of a show effect my decision in it, but sometimes a show's fanbase can be so big and overwhelming stupid that it puts me off watching it just because everyone's talked about it so much that I'm already bored of it before seeing it.
