Speak Geekers, ok? All good with you? I hope so and if you want to know why Naruto Shippuden hasn't been fully dubbed here in Brazil, you're in the right place. As we all know, Naruto was and is a tremendous fever among Anime and Otaku fans. Its explosion here in Brazil happened around the year 2007, one of the TV channels that most broadcast Naruto was SBT.

Well, you can see that I said that Naruto had its breakthrough here in Brazil around 2007, that is, it was in this year that the old Naruto ended and Naruto Shippuden began.

Naruto Shippuden as we all know, has 500 episodes and had its last episode recorded in 2017. Despite having 500 original episodes, why only 112 were dubbed here in Brazil?

One of the reasons

Naruto is a more recent Anime compared to others such as Dragon Ball, it started to have anime recorded in the 2000s, while Dragon Ball in the 90s was already booming, but what does that have to do with it? In the 90's, the censorship here in Brazil was not as heavy as the one imposed in the 2000's. Japan is a country with very different customs from Brazil and the USA, there they calmly passed several scenes of heavy blood.

Because Naruto started in the 2000s, he has already been facing major problems in terms of censorship, including Brazil made a censorship of censorship, what do you mean? The Anime episodes purchased here in Brazil came from the United States, which in turn bought it from Japan, that is, it arrived with a lot of modifications from the Japanese original.

As we can see, Brazil adapted an adaptation of the Americans.

And this obstacle due to censorship made Naruto Shippuden take a long time to be dubbed here in Brazil.

A Damage Caused by the Delay in the Dubbing of Naruto Shippuden

The company that bought the rights to Naruto Shippuden here in Brazil paid for the dubbing of 112 episodes, these episodes were broadcast on a small channel. This meant that this company did not make much profit, as it could not pass through Canal Grande because of Censorship.

Looking at the business side, we realized that it wouldn't be worth it to dub new episodes since the company will face difficulties in sales.

Is There Any Solution?

Currently, Netflix has rights over Naruto and its original voice actors have uploaded a hashtag asking Netflix to dub it.

Well, Netflix is the biggest online series and movie app that exists here in Brazil and one of the biggest in the world, maybe it's feasible for her to do that.

Will there be new episodes of Naruto Shippuden dubbed on Netflix? We deeply hope so.

maybe even the Netflix come increase your subscription on behalf of anime and otaku fans who arrived interested in these dubs.

It is also worth mentioning that the Naruto Dubbing here in Brazil is one of the best in the world.
