Ponyo!

Imagine my shock when i played the first YouTube video and it started singing in English. My heart actually skipped a beat. The English dubbed version was wrecking the entire song. Appalling.

I watched some of the English dubbed trailers, and i must admit that i was cringing when i heard the characters utter heavily American accented English. Guys, you need to watch the original Japanese version. The dubbed ones were off the mark, ruined the atmosphere, and had too much Americaness in it, rendering the whole film ridiculous.

Anyway, the theme song, in Japanese! (There’s English subtitles.)
