Original Japanese Simpsons Voice Actors Replaced, Fans Outraged

The new Japanese Simpsons: Tokoro Joji (Homer), Akiko Wada (Marge), Tamura Atsushi (Bart), and Becky (Lisa)

Quote from Japan Probe:

Japan entertainment news blog Ryuganji reported yesterday that the upcoming release of the new Simpsons movie has ignored the Japanese voice acting cast (which has been dubbing the series on cable TV for years) and replaced them with popular TV personalities. It’s clearly an attempt to make mainstream Japanese audiences come out to theaters and watch the film, since the vast majority of Japanese people have never watched the show and their only exposure to the Simpsons characters has been through a series of CC Lemon commercials a few years ago:

Today Ryuganji also reported the news that a determined group of Japanese Simpson fans have started a movement demanding that the original voice acting cast be used for the movie. The blog, located at, contains lots of pictures expressing their views, such as this one:

The names of the original voice actors are written below their Simpsons style character drawings, with a message that probably should read “Not the Voices, Not the Simpsons.”

They also have a message to any English-speaking readers of their blog:

Welcome to my blog.

This blog’s name is “The Simpsons Movie Voice Actor Change Opposition Blog”.

The voice actors will be changed by FOX Japan.

This situation is too bad. We Japanese fans want to stop it.

Could you tell this news to many Internet sites or media as soon as possible?

Please help Japanese The Simpsons fans and save The Simpsons!!

I’m collecting signatures of The Simpsons fans to oppose the idea of FOX Japan.

I would like you to sign it.

Please go to this page, ” “.

And write your name, e-mail address and comments.

Nobody can see your e-mail address.

I really appreciate your coming. Thank you.

And to add a note, The Mexican Simpsons had the same problem with all the cast changed suddenly from the TV show and the Movie, fans get angry but by disgrace it seems that fans in Mexico wasn't organized enough to do something, and in fact the voices where so similar to the original that most people didn't noticed the changes,
what can be the REAL reason for this kind of changes? Obviously Money

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
