Someone please be kind enough to explain to me why teenagers all over Bombay are suddenly obssesing over this manga known as Shin Chan. I concede that the main character has got an awesome voiceover in the Hindi edition and some of the pranks he plays may be termed as ‘adorable’ but the horrendous quality of the animation is such a huge turn off that I simply can’t seem to get into it.
Hell, I don’t even mind saying that it’s not repulsive….maybe worth watching once in a while. I’d be totally okay if a lot of kids were enjoying it. But the number of guys aged 18 and above who want to go home early from college because “sade-chhe ko shin chan hai naa” and the number of orkut profiles with that little dweebs image as their profile picture is befuddling. Its turned into teenage Poke-monia and honestly, I’d like someone to tell me why.
Edit: Crayon Shin Chan has an 8.8 on IMDB. So obviously the problem is with me. Sigh…
Edit again: Lollwa! The moral police are at it again.
